Free Falcon provides many cockpits with working controls.  The F16 cockpit shown here is very realistic.
The Balkan War simulated in Free Falcon is close to the actual order of battle.
All three sims in esports for engineers provide multiplayer with dynamic campaigns.
Also included is Rowan's Battle of Britain, with one of the best single-player dynamic (unscripted) campaigns.  Patched with new textures and clouds.
Like Battle o Britain, Rowan's Mig Alley is an award-winning flight sim within a war sim.  You play both pilot and Air Commander in an effort to win a historically accurate war simulation.
Engineers will appreciate the jet and prop flight models.  1950's era jets had all the power but none of the computer controls of more modern jet fighters, so pilot skill matters greatly.

Since I wrote this comment, the Rowan's Battle of Britain flight sim has been added to eSports for engineers. As with the other 3 sims, this is an incredibly ambitious sim that rewards any investment you make into it. This is the final version of Rowan's Battle of Britain which includes three patches. This sim works great on linux with Ubuntu 20.04 LTS, wine 6.7 and a dual monitor setup.'s_Battle_of_Britain
