Top 24 Military Combat Flight Simulators


Who doesn't like to spend an afternoon revving up their computer to shoot down enemy MIGs? We've taken a look at some of the top military combat flight simulator games on the market.

1. Rise of Flight: The First Great Air War

Rise of Flight is a state-of-the-art PC flight simulation title that sets a new standard in fidelity, beauty and realism. The game puts you right in the pilot’s seat of the greatest World War 1 aircraft (Spad 13.C1, Fokker D. VII, Albatros D. Va and the Nieuport 28.C1). Historical references and modern computer graphics were combined to render more than 100,000 square kilometers of French countryside that is disfigured by a terribly cratered battlefield. You can rise through the ranks from a green Lieutenant all the way to full Colonel.
