All I ever really played on the Amiga was flight sims.

Wings
Knights of The Sky
F19 Stealth Fighter
F117-a Nighthawk
Gunship
Gunship 2000
B17 Flying Fortress
F15 Strike Eagle II
Their Finest Hour
Reach For The Skies

I had lots more than this, but these were my favorites.

I used to enjoy F19 Stealth Fighter too - if that could be recoded to work on an A1200 with an 030 accelerator (no need for any fancier graphics) - I'd buy it!

Knights of the Sky, I used to love that game, also you could play it over a null modem serial cable!!!! Absolutely fantastic fun.

Everyone's right about the lack of flight sims for consoles. I think Ace Combat survives and gets sequels because it seems to have the console market too itself

Nobody here mentions ProFlight, released through HiSoft. I believe it was one of the most realistic Tornado flight sims on any platform of the day.

That also made it very hard even taking off with the thing.

It's more of a strategy game than a flight simulator, but Armour Geddon II rocked! :biglaugh:

F18 Interceptor was probably the best-known, but for my money Falcon was the better sim hands down.  Two expansion disks, head to head (null modem or dialup) play...it was just great.

Armour Geddon I / II were both brilliant, I wish Psygnosis (now SCE Studio Liverpool) would ressurrect that one. Yet another title that you could play with NULL modem serial cable.

I have fond memories playing Knights of the Sky, Armour Geddon I and Falcon AT over null modem cable with my step dad (rip).  Great days!:)

Wahahahahah!

SKYCHASE!!!!!!!!!

No, seriously, i loved F-18 back in time, later TFX and JetPilot, but they were quite slow on a 030 /50...
Wings was AWESOME as all Cinemaware games, not really a simulator itself, but a kind of crossover.

I think F-19 Stealth Fighter was the best modern flight sim on the Amiga.
Birds of the Prey was great too,but the low frame rate made it quite painful to play on a normal A500.

But my personal favourite was a futuristic flight sim called "Embryo".
It was made by Beyond Arts and published by Black Legend.
Though it was more like a shoot'em up than a flight sim.
