Chuck Yeager's Advanced Flight Trainer is a 1987 computer aircraft simulation game produced by Electronic Arts that was orginially released as Chuck Yeager's Advanced Flight Simulator. Due to a legal squable with Microsoft over the usage of "Flight Simulator" in the name, the title was pulled from shelves and later re-released as Chuck Yeager's Advanced Flight Trainer. Many copies of the original title were sold before being pulled from the shelves. Chuck Yeager served as technical consultant for the game, where his likeness and voice were prominently used.

The game allows a player to "test pilot" 14 different airplanes, including the Bell X-1, which Yeager had piloted to become the first man to exceed Mach 1. Other aircraft one can test fly include the SR-71 Blackbird; the P-51 Mustang; the Cessna 172 Skyhawk; the F-16 and the F/A-18.

The game is embellished by Yeager's laconic commentary: When the user crashes one plane, Yeager remarks "You really bought the farm on that one!"

Reception

Game reviewers Hartley and Patricia Lesser complimented the game in their "The Role of Computers" column in Dragon #126 (1987), stating "There is so much in this game that it’s going to be quite some time before another flight simulator can offer so much performance for your buck." The reviewers gave the PC/MS-DOS version of the game 4 out of 5 stars.[1] The Lessers reviewed the MacIntosh version of the game in 1988 in Dragon #140 in "The Role of Computers" column, givng that version 4 stars as well.[2]

Legacy

This game was followed in 1989 by Chuck Yeager's Advanced Flight Trainer 2.0 and in 1991 by Chuck Yeager's Air Combat.
