Introduction: Google Earth Hidden Flight Simulator!

Here's how to activate Google Earth's hidden Flight Simulator feature.

Note: I have only done this on windows, so I'm not sure if it works on Macs. So this Instructable is for WINDOWS ONLY!

Step 1: Install Google Earth

go to earth.google.com and install the free version of Google Earth if you don't already have it.

Step 2: Open the Program

When the insallation finishes, launch Google Earth from it's shortcut.

Step 3: The Secret Feature of Google Earth

To activate the hidden flight simulator feature, hold down Ctrl+Alt+A on your keyboard. A Sub-window should come up. Choose one of the two planes, choose your airport, and fly away. Click on the help button for flight controls. And yes people, this feature is compatible with joysticks!

Has anyone ever landed on any street and drive around. Unlimited and nothing blocks you out. However, It is Tune Town. Try it. Great for getting to know your way around and better than the blurry ground level driving.

I found this fail while flying! Dont people look at the design of things before they are built? One would hope so.

Wow it's great. But it's really hard. I was kinda hoping it would be a bit cruisier.

put it on full throttle and press the down arrow or use mouse yoke or joystick(pull back for joystick, put the cursor down at the bottom of the screen) when you're going about 100 knots.
