How To Flight Simulator Google Earth

Have you ever fantasized about flying high above the earth, gliding through the clouds, and witnessing the world from a bird’s perspective? Thanks to Google Earth’s integrated flight simulator, you can now simulate the exhilarating sensation of flying without leaving your home. In this blog post, we will provide you with instructions on how to access and utilize the flight simulator tool in Google Earth.

Step 1: Launch Google Earth

Begin by opening Google Earth on your computer. You can download it for free if you haven’t already installed it. Once it’s open, you’ll be greeted with a 3D rendering of our beautiful planet.

Step 2: Access the Flight Simulator

Navigate up to the toolbar at the top of your screen, and click on “Tools”. In the dropdown menu, select the “Enter Flight Simulator” option. If you can’t find it, simply press Ctrl + Alt + A (or Command + Option + A on a Mac).

Step 3: Choose your Settings

After clicking on “Enter Flight Simulator”, a pop-up box will appear with various settings for your flight. You can choose your aircraft (a F-16 “Viper” fighter jet or a SR22 4-seater plane), your starting position, and whether you want to use a joystick or your keyboard for controlling the aircraft.

Step 4: Start the Flight

Once you’ve selected your preferences, click on “Start Flight”. You’ll then be transported to your chosen starting location and your flight simulation will begin.

Step 5: Control the Aircraft

Learning the controls may take some practice, but it’s part of the fun. Here are some basic controls to get you started:

  • Press the Up or Down arrow to control the thrust of your aircraft.
  • Use the Left or Right arrow to steer.
  • Use the Page Up or Page Down keys to control the rudder.
  • Press Space to pause the flight simulator.


That’s all there is to it! Now you know how to use the flight simulator in Google Earth. Remember that practice makes perfect, so don’t be discouraged if you find the controls a bit challenging at first. Keep practicing and soon you’ll be soaring through the skies like a pro. Happy flying!
