    try blazin' angels. there's a sequel as well. I'm not sure if the ace combat series are on PC but I've heard they are good.

    btw, blazin angels is acadey whereas ace combat is more realistic

    There's been a real drought of flight combat games recently, IL-2 ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Il_2_sturmovik_(game) ) and Sequels for World War 2 and LOMAC ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lock_On:_Modern_Air_Combat ) for more modern stuff.

    FSX ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Microsoft_Flight_Simulator_X ) is good for flying, but lacks the combat aspect, sadly the last Microsoft Combat Flight Sim (CFS3 - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Combat_Flight_Simulator_3:_Battle_for_Europe ) was a bit rubbish :(

    Jet Thunder ( http://www.thunder-works.com/news.htm ) is in the works, based on the British-Argentine Falklands War, not sure of a release date, sometime next year though probably.

    http://www.avsim.com/
    http://www.flightsim.com/cgi/kds/main/menuchoo.htm

    ^^ Geared towards more Civil aviation through FSX might be worth looking at though

    WIthout knowing what joystick you have those forums should help you with it if you get serious, also multiply monitors and TrackIR aswell -> http://www.naturalpoint.com/trackir/

    :D

    IL2 is great, cheap too. I used to play Combat Flight Sim a lot with a clan at www.raf662.com - it's a combat flight sim group, might be worth a nose for you.
