There is another choice! Go check out Over Flanders Fields: Beyond Heaven and Hell.
This is a great WWI flight sim. You'll also need a copy of CFS3, but don't let that dissuade you*. OFF BHaH is an add-on to CFS3 that completely changes CFS3. I know CFS3 never had a great reputation, but what the developers did with OFF BHaH is nothing short of amazing. Dozens of flyable aircraft, thousands of skins, check out all the features.
OFF BHaH is actually the 3rd iteration (or phase). Phases 1 and 2 were freebies, but believe me, OFF BHaH is worth the price ($29). Also, they just released the first add-on, Hat in the Ring ($19)
Heres a link to the forums. Check it out...
Heres a list of some of the flyable aircraft:
Albatros DII, DIII, DVa
Fokker EIII, Dr1, DVII, EV**
Airco DH2, DH5**
Bristol F2B, Scout
RAF F.E.2.B, BE2C, RE8, SE5a
Nieuport 11, 16, 17, 24**, 28**
Sopwith Strutter, Camel, Pup, Triplane
Spad VII, XIII
** -- part of the Hat in the Ring add-on
* from the OFF website:
Note: Some of you may be instantly put off trying OFF BH&H because it is based on the CFS3 engine. There is a lot of prejudice found against even trying OFF BH&H because of CFS3 reputation, some of it deservedly earned by CFS3! HOWEVER we can assure you (as many users will attest in our forums!) once you play OFF BH&H you will realise it is a TOTAL REVAMP and a TOTAL TRANSFORMATION of CFS3, into a stunning, absorbing, addictive, immersive and enjoyably WW1 flight simulation. Most of the annoying parts of CFS3 are gone, many new features are added, great AI, High Res Scenery, Flight models, Damage models etc.
