It seems that my temporary transfer in Chile lasts longer then expected: at the present the return date has been postponed to may 2011.
I have no chance to bring the simulator and the cockpit in Chile because there is no point in organizing a removal for a few months only.
In the mean time I am thinking about the future of the simulation because Microsoft flight simulator seems stuck since long time and there are no rumours of any future development.
I am planning to buy and test X-Plane that seems the only valid alternative. Since september 2009, CPFlight supports X-Plane and there are libraries to interface SIOC to this simulator too.
I will report after the testing.
