For the last-day simulator exercise, we will be using the online, browser-based simulator at www.geo-fs.com. No download or account creation is necessary. Students will need a computer with a keyboard with arrow keys (a mouse or a joystick can be used in place of arrow keys). To use this flight simulator, you will need a WebGL compatible web browser. You can test this here... http://webglreport.com
If you want to play using a joystick, you will need a GamePad API compliant browser (test it here... https://gamepad-tester.com) (Chrome, Firefox, Opera, etc. Test... https://caniuse.com/gamepad).
