Demo Area Key Points of Interest
The demo area contains a wealth of interesting points of interest (POIs) which have been faithfully modeled in 3D and placed in their exact position. This makes VFR flights in the simulator as realistic as you can get!
You won’t find a more comprehensive, realistic and up-to-date British flying experience anywhere. Even in this free demo area you will be able to spend dozens of hours just exploring!
