RealFlight is compatible only with Microsoft Windows
and cannot be used with Mac OSOSX operating systems.
But if you can run Windows on your Macintosh
computer, you should also be able to run RealFlight.
Apple now offers a program called Boot Camp
that does allow Macintosh to dual-boot Windows with Mac OSOSX.
For help installing Windows onto your Mac using Boot Camp,
contact Apple Support.
While not officially supported, several users have reported
success with running RealFlight products (not RF-X) under a Parallels
installation of Windows.
For more information on running 3D games
under Parallels, contact Parallels Support.

RealFlight performance will be greatly limited if used with a Netbook

symmetrical patterns and pinpoint entries and exits
Wingtip and Rotary Trails allows pilot to trace their flight path
ResetRewind Button allows pilots to practice maneuvers, recreate

pilot can analyze mistakes and correct them.
Using Multiplayer and your Internet connection you can fly with
other RealFlight pilots. Hook up with an instructor for one-on-one
tutoring, engage in combat with a single opponent or a patrol - or
host multiplayer events for a whole squadron. You can invite
guests, choose sites, aircraft and events, limit play by points or
elapsed time - and automate it all, so you can join the fun, too.
Please note, the number of participants in a Multiplayer
session may be limited by the internet connection (speed
and bandwidth) available to each participant.
Multiplayer Combat Events include Dead Ringer, Machine Gun, Streamer
Cut, Hardcore Combat, Rocket, and Paintball
In Combat Events, select a single opponent from any number of
participants and track his movement throughout the virtual arena.
Pilots License, choose a name, select an avatar, and create your own
profile to share - including a personal statement and flight hours
Use the Aircraft Editor to add cameras to your plane or heli, just
like any other object. Movable camera angles can be changed through
your controller. Activate servos using a switch or rotary knob to
rotate the camera position.
TruFlo Wind Dynamics allow you to designate wind direction and speed,
from blustery to mild. Several flying sites support Dynamic Slope
Soaring and hand-launch gliders. RF8 more accurately renders
thermal winds, static thermals and dynamic thermals
Built-in interface allows you to use your own transmitter if desired.
MultiMode lets you use the controller and interface simultaneously -
a feature no other RC simulator has.
InterLink-X controller features digital trims and QuickSelect,
