Virtual NATO is a cool virtual airline program that was recently released. Users have the opportunity to participate in military operations via flight. There are two roles available to players, airborne radar controller and pilot. Individuals can participate in missions alongside pilots from other countries.

Great Lakes Express is another simulation program of this type that has been updated. Players can now travel to the Mitchell International Airport, located in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. This particular game is one with a focus on landing on smaller landing airfields and airports, in contrast to many flight simulators that focus primarily on large national and international airports. Real life pilots who frequent smaller airports may find this game to be more beneficial than one that does focus on big airports. The same is true for virtual pilots who prefer smaller airfields to larger ones.
