Comments - Orbiter is a freeware space flight simulator for the PC that is fun, powerful, realistic, expandable, and educational. Based on the real science and math of orbital mechanics and atmospheric flight, it features a first-person astronaut's perspective and beautiful 3D graphics. Orbiter's developer, Dr. Martin Schweiger, has created an amazing virtual world of real and fictional spacecraft, space stations, planets, and moons. It includes a variety of spacecraft, space stations, and sample scenarios or "missions.".

The Flight Sim Museum is proud to host Bruce Irving's free guide to Orbiter - "Go Play In Space".

" I think Orbiter should really be flown in a dark room up close to a big monitor. It's like looking out the window of the Shuttle, with Bach, Strauss, and Ravel cycling in the background. "
