Announcing The First Flight Simulation Novel

Proudly announcing the release of the first ever flight simulation novel. Witty author and flight simulation enthusiast Bill Smith, from Australia, has released "Get Real! A sad man's neurotic fantacies in flight simulation." This book, the first of its kind, is available exclusively at

In part it's a mystery in which a couple of sociopaths strike up a tense relationship based on a shared obsession. Best of all, the plot evolves amidst an insanely large number of flying adventures. The blurring of the author's perception of reality and simulation within the narrative is quite natural. "It's a wonderful mixture of humor, drama, intruge, excitement and fantasy" says reviewer Tom Grassia. The story is the product of a confused state of mind that is shared by all similarly obsessed flight simmers.

There is something here for everyone from the new sim addict to the experienced pilot to the simmer's significant other. You can read what other reviewers have had to say about this newest Flight Simulation attraction on our website and you don't have to join the "F.S Flight Club International" to purchase the book.

The cost of this A5-sized, Spiral-bound book, including worldwide shipping, is just 29.90 (Australian). We checked a currency exchange website and as of 29-Jul-03 we were quoted that as $19.90 US, less than 17.5 Euros and just 12.25 British Pounds. Purchase the book now at
