Classic convenience meets enhanced capabilities in RealFlight 8! It brings back all the features and functionality of RF7.5 with several key upgrades. The same game-changing, supremely realistic physics which have drawn pilots to RealFlight since the first edition are back and further improved...and there’s so much more.The best part is, if you can run RealFlight 7.5 on your computer, you can run RealFlight 8!
First up on the list of new capabilities—VR compatibility. Plug in a popular VR set available on the market and you're instantly at the field or behind the sticks. For full immersion, there's nothing else like it out there.
Plus, accessing the world of RealFlight is easier than ever with a simple, intuitive interface which virtually guarantees you'll be up and flying in moments. There’s zero learning curve, zero hassle, just flying fun. New for RealFlight 8, you can fly with the custom-designed InterLink controller or hook up a game console controller you might already have around the house.
Next up are the flying sites and aircraft—every flying site and aircraft from RF7.5 is back. Plus there are over a dozen new aircraft and a customized FPV flying site. Plus, you can customize everything to your satisfaction with aircraft and flying site software that has also been upgraded to accept even more detailed HD models.
Far from last, and certainly not least, the game-like challenges which have helped sharpen thousands of pilots’ skills are back and expanded so you get more tiers of balloon-popping, spot landing bang for your buck.
Tech Note: RealFlight 8 is compatible with some VR headsets. At this time, the Oculus Rift and the HTC Vive are known to work. For more information, please check the manufacturer's requirements for the VR headset you intend to use.

This is the Great Planes RealFlight RF-8 Simulator Software Only. **Now with VR compatibility. Plug in a popular VR set available** **on the market and you're instantly at the field or behind the sticks** **For a full immersive experience there's nothing else like it.** RealFlight is compatible only with Microsoft Windows and cannot be used with Mac OS/OSX operating systems. But if you can run Windows on your Macintosh computer, you should also be able to run RealFlight. Apple now offers a program called "Boot Camp" that does allow Macintosh to dual-boot Windows with Mac OS/OSX. For help installing Windows onto your Mac using Boot Camp, contact Apple Support. While not officially supported, several users have reported success with running RealFlight products (not RF-X) under a "Parallels" installation of Windows. For more information on running 3D games under Parallels, contact Parallels Support. FEATURES: Immersive, upgraded graphics render the world in an unprecedented level of detail, aircraft are detailed to the panel lines and rivets Drone flying skills can be honed with the most advanced simulations ever offered by RealFlight, new intricate drone race courses such as FPV Drone Racing, FPV Drone Racing II, and FPV Race League are as detailed as being at an actual field and help pilots hone their FPV flying skills.
