No, they arrive at your door, invite themselves in and conscript you into the military.

There are emergency takeoff procedures that allows fast takeoff bypassing system checks according to what I read about it.

Only if you are used to 6 button HAWX. For flight simmers its called accuracy and the sim is praised for its complexity.


So retarded it got an 9.2 on IGN http://pc.ign.com/articles/945/945520p2.html

"Closing Comments

We could keep going on about how polished BS is for a sim, or how insanely stable it is, or the astonishing lack of bugs, but wed rather you experience the game than listen to us blather on about it. If youve fostered dreams of being a pilot, or love old-school complicated PC games, or are a simmer on the fence about a game with relatively little exposure, help support the simming genre and have a damn good time while youre at it. On the other hand, if you get bored reading manuals or prefer arcade action flyers, stay the hell away from this virtual ****pit."

Pretty much sums it all up.
