Developer Rami Ismail is one of the titans behind the sadly defunct studio Vlambeer. A video game genius with brutal gifts and a love for the environment most likely, cause situations like the one experienced with Microsoft Flight Simulator.
During one of the many flights he takes to attend business meetings and give lectures, he used his last great hobby to carry out an experiment that seems incredible that he had not already been done – at least publicly.
The idea was to get on a flight and make the same journey in Flight Simulator to see to what extent the simulator lived up to its genre and was closer to reality. A trip that was narrated on Twitter in the following thread.
The experiment was a success and, despite not having all the data of his flight to try to adjust to the full options such as altitude, speed, or wind direction, Ismail went from being about four minutes behind the actual flight to achieving land in the game four minutes before the plane touched down.
One more sample of the spectacular work done by Asobo Studio to shape Microsoft Flight Simulator. Undoubtedly the definitive proof of to what extent, now without a doubt and as we mentioned a few lines above, it lives up to its genre.
