Entertaining and often based on historical events, flight simulation games require good hand eye coordination to win. Due to difficulty or violence level, it can sometimes be difficult to find flight simulation games suitable for children. However, there are options available from computer simulations to games for the most current gaming console. But parents should be aware, most flight simulation games still require a unique controller, a joystick.

Microsoft Flight Simulators

Featuring a wide range of aircraft, Microsoft's Flight Simulator series includes flight simulations from all over the world. Participate in an air race, or help bring disaster relief to a remote area. In more recent versions of the game, land masses and aircraft are three-dimensional and look almost like the real thing. Microsoft makes both a standard flight simulation game and a combat flight simulation game. So, be sure to check the packaging if you're trying to steer clear of violence. A PC game, the "Microsoft Flight Simulator" is rated E for everyone and is suitable for children over 6 years of age.

F-22 Lightning

Although it features some animated violence, the current version of "F-22 Lightning" still features an E for everyone rating. Deal with changing weather conditions, such as wind, snow, rain and hail, as you fly, making for a more realistic flight experience. A variety of auto options, like auto-take-off and landing, create a world navigable for younger children. However, the strategy and violent components of the game, involving levelling cities with nuclear weapons, may make it too difficult or unsuitable for children under 6. The F-22 Lightning games are only available for the PC.

Blazing Angels

Action-packed teen games, the Blazing Angel series of games features a T for Teen rating and the violence to match. So, this game may not be the one you're looking for if you have younger children. However, the games are based around the aerial battles and skies of World War II, and young aviators fly historic planes used during World War II. The game features tutorials to get used to the controller and flight simulation and game play becomes more difficult as you go. The Blazing Angels games are available in PC, Xbox, PlayStation and Nintendo formats.
