Acro FS: Aerobatic Flight Sim updated with new aircraft, airports


CORVALLIS, Ore., Dec. 5, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Knife Edge Software and Jim Bourke Airshows have updated Acro FS, their aerobatic flight simulator, with three new aircraft and several new flying sites and have taken the bold step of releasing it free in early access.

Created by a pilot
Jim Bourke, air show pilot and member of the US Unlimited Aerobatic Team, created Acro FS to be the world's most realistic simulation of aerobatic flight.

Just fly
Acro FS is a different kind of flight simulator.  This is a simulation about flying, built with the stick and rudder pilot in mind.

High-fidelity physics
Knife Edge Software, developers of Acro FS, has over 2 decades of experience with the high-alpha aerodynamic models required to simulate acro flight. Their RealFlight R/C simulator has been the gold standard for model aviation. That understanding of aggressive flight is what allows Acro FS to simulate snap rolls, spins, torque rolls, and other advanced maneuvers that haven't been handled properly by flight sims to date.

VR support
Users with quality gaming computers can even fly in VR. Strap on your Oculus or SteamVR headset, and you can watch the world spin around you. Just like in a real acro plane, you may find that you need to limit your time in VR. The experience is intense.

Try it now for free in Early Access

Pilots can now choose from four aircraft:

...and they can fly at four different locations:

 

Now updated with great new planes, beautiful airports, new racing challenges, online leaderboards, and multi-controller support!

Take to the sky from several different airport locations and maximize the fun with total control of weather and daylight.

Expansive World Design: Explore hundreds of thousands of square miles in Acro FS

Feel the thrill of four classic planes with virtual reality immersion using Oculus, SteamVR, or Windows Mixed Reality headsets.
