So you have tried Aces High, the highly popular combat flight simulator, but you don’t think you are improving quickly enough. No problem! Go to http://trainers.hitechcreations.com/ and any possible question you may have about our flight sim will be answered for you.

We at HiTech Creations understand that not everyone is a veteran and we all start out as rookies when playing Aces High. That’s why we have a dedicated band of volunteers who man the phones and work the internet so that your questions are answered and you can become a better player of our World War 2 Flight Simulator. Hop in our cockpit and enjoy the flight; we are right next to you in the co-pilots seat.

If you drop by http://bbs.hitechcreations.com/smf/index.php you will see our bulletin board and on that page is our Fighter Ace Question and Answer section where every conceivable question about Aces High has been asked and answered. And if you can’t find your question answered you can always ask it and someone will be online to answer it.

This is just another feature that makes Aces High the number one combat flight simulator on the market. If you haven’t tried Aces High then you really haven’t tried a flight sim before, so what in the world are you waiting for?

We at HiTech Creations love all things having to do with World War II. We are students of that war, interested in the strategies, the action, the victories and the defeats, and we have tried to pattern Aces High after that war in order to make it the most realistic flight sim on the market. With that in mind we bring you another battle from that war.

Operation Market Garden was part of the Allied advance from Paris to the Rhine River. Crossing the Rhine was considered extremely important to the Allied Forces because if they were able to do so they could outflank the Siegried Line and completely circle Germany’s industrial center, the Ruhr.

From September 17-25 the Allies tried to do exactly that in one of the largest airborne operations up to that point in the war. 41,628 airborne troops, 1 armoured division, 2 infantry divisions and 1 armoured brigade took part in the operation for the Allies against an undetermined force for Germany.

After initial successes between Eindhoven and Nijmergen the expedition ground to a halt when they could not cross the Wilhelmina Canal and their supply line became too thin. Ensuing setbacks forced the Allies to evacuate one entire division which had become trapped and shortly thereafter the operation was cancelled, ending the Allied dream of ending the war by Christmas 1944.

It was a costly operation for the Allies as they lost approximately 16,000 men, 88 tanks and 144 transport aircraft. The Germans lost between 6,000-13,000 men, 30 tanks and SP guns and 159 aircraft. The war would grind on for quite a few months after this strategic failure.

Combat flight simulators are only as good as their creators and we at HiTech are manned by a remarkable staff that includes some pretty dedicated volunteers. Together we make darn sure that we cross our t’s and dot our i’s with every detail in Aces High. We didn’t become the number one World War 2 Flight Simulator by accident. Our competition is always howling at our door but that’s the way we like it. It keeps us on our toes and it ensures that you, the gamer, will always have the very best we can muster in our Flight Simulator World War 2 game.

Sign in, climb into your cockpit, and fly the skies of Aces High. Once you do you will never try another flight simulator.

Change is in the air again at HiTech Creations as we continue to make Aces High the best Flight Simulator World War 2 style on the market. We recently updated the P-40 with one of its variations, the P-40N Warhawk. This completes the variations of the P-40 and keeps our players and volunteers happy.

What it also does is continue to emphasize that we are constantly working to make Aces High the best flight sim on the market. We like being number one and we intend to stay that way.
