Any 'simple' WWII flying games?

The demos of WWII flying games are great but I don't have the time to master two A4 pages of shift this and control that.
Anything decent I can fly simply, preferably using a mouse?

Thanks and regards

Suggest you try "Aces High".
You can download the demo from
It's really an online game but I've had the demo on my pc for ages and it's great fun and easy to use in offline mode.
Best of all it was free!
Chocks away!

I downloaded Acers High but I cannot make the mouse work,the 'plane just goes its own way.
Any ideas?

Here's a WW2 flying game that's easy to pick up and play, and could be what you're looking for but for one fact. It isn't easy to control with a mouse.

there are other flying games that are easy to use, but they aren't set in WW2. Yager, the overlooked futuristic shooter is a good example. I got that one for £4, and it's well worth your time.

Also take a look at ysflight from
this is mouse playable, free, and a only a small 6mb file to download. The mapping is simple but there is a great choice of kit ranging from helicopters to 747's and more.......definitely more fun than MS flight simulator and doesn't make you £40 lighter!

Got Aces High II working and its really good if a bit advanced for what I'm after. However I am thinking about buying a usb joy stick now! lol.
I'm going to the ysflight site after I've finished this. cheers.

Great site, thanks. This will be a must-visit if buy that joy stick.

Thanks again to both of you for taking the trouble. Regards, Chris
