The hardware we use is listed in this category. Since summer of 2017 we are enjoying our 737 in a 210° view
Flight simulations generally need large hardware requirements. A powerful processor, plenty of memory and superior graphics cards are a must for the latest generation of flight simulators. Further, since not only parts of an environment like in commercial games are displayed, but complex sceneries and the whole world, there are large amounts of data needed. So an installed flight simulator including addons easily comes over 100 GB on the hard disk. It also needs to recharge a lot of textures and objects during the flight. Therefore, it is recommended to either use an SSD or a Western Digital VelociRaptor 10,000 rpm.
Next is to say that, as with new games and the further development of flight simulators the requirements on hardware will increase more. After Prepar3D v2 ® is finally here, you can now utilize powerful graphics cards with the successor to the Flight Simulator series from Microsoft ®. Unfortunately, our strongest old card, the MSI Nvidia GTX 580 with 1.5GB DDR5 memory is not powerful enough to run it. So if you want to go into the new flight simulations you should invest in one of the latest graphics cards and CPUs.
