Often you will hand fly the aircraft so although FlightSoft tries to provide much automation in the approach flight phase we encourage you after some degree of familiarity with the approach to disengage the autopilot systems and hand fly the approaches as real pilots do in this part of the world. The concept of hand flying a giant aircraft has all but been lost in modern times with jumbo jetliners equipped with the latest hardware in advanced avionics systems. But in Fly to Greece FSX we encourage you to learn to fly the approaches with autopilot systems off after some experience with the approaches. Other than Africa and Latin and South America where hand flown approaches are routine the Greek Islands present a unique opportunity to do likewise. The airports of the Greek Islands are small but beautiful. In some ways they are a window into the past a simpler and beautiful time in the history of aviation. In real life a staircase would be used to disembark passengers rather that a docking gate. In Fly to Greece FSX you will immerse yourself in the approaches programmed with real weather conditions imported from weather satellites in and around the Greek Islands the flight approaches couldn't be more realistic. You'll have your copilot look out for descending traffic as these airports are always busy as Brits, Germans and others from Europe and the United Kingdom descend on these islands for their summer vacations. Southern Spain & The Canary Islands are the other big summer beach vacation destinations. Both Fly to Greece FSX and Fly to Spain & The Canary Islands FSX provide PC Pilots with rare opportunities in a world of modern avionics equippment to use the island approaches as a window into the past and hand fly the approaches to learn how some pilots do it in real life and how it used to be done before the era of modern glass cockpit avionic systems. The Greek Islands have sunsets that are matched only by the ones above the Island of Ibiza and the Canary Islands in Spain (beautifully rendered in FlightSoft's Fly to Spain & The Canary Islands title). The sunsets are a beautiful orange color if you could imagine this recreated in the simulator it will bring a smile to your face. Fly to Greece FSX is NOT your passport to the most modern marvels of aviationic. In fact, if you make use of some of the automated approach flights you'll learn how to properly fly approaches to the Greek Islands but as a significant contrast to other products in FlightSoft's extensive portfolio it is the rare opportunity to hand fly the aircraft that provides the flight sim pilot with the more realistic simulation of how flights are flown in real life in the beautiful Greek Islands some of the most beautiful spots on planet earth.""
