Pro Pilot USA is the second title in Sierra's Pro Pilot series of civilian flight simulators.
The game is similar to the previous release, Pro Pilot '98, except it omits the European terrain, and focuses solely on North America, while adding a new 'Virtual Co-pilot' feature that will help the novice pilot with the radio communications, and to keep track of the height and course changes required to pass through a controlled airspace.
Navigational aids include ATC, VOR, ILS, NDB and Victor routes for IFR flight planning, also all major rivers, mountains, lakes etc. are included in detail for VFR navigation assistance.
The game has tutorial videos and on-line help, preconfigured Quick Flights to get the eager pilot in the air for instant flights over scenic areas, and a flight planning wizard with charts showing your course.
Like the rest of the Pro Pilot series, this game has put focus on communication with air traffic controllers and other computer-controlled pilots, and now you also have the on board virtual pilot to help you on your way.
