For the first time ever, Airline Simulator 97 allowed armchair pilots to fly in real-time-continuous flights between New York and the other US/Canada airports and all the European airports. In addition to offering a staggering degree of realism subLOGIC fans are familiar with, Airline Simulator 97 also includes Airline Simulator Interactive Manual (ASIM), a powerful program that teaches you how to use the simulator, operate the glass cockpit, print the approach charts, print a quick reference chart, and print parts of the instruction manual. The interface of ASIM is available in English, German, French and - of course - Italian. If you have even the slightest interest in civil aviation, Airline Simulator 97 is well worth your time. If you like the game, also check out the still-sold, semi-official sequel called Airline Simulator 2, released in 1999 by Nomissoft after they parted ways with LAGO. Two thumbs up, way up!
