My father is 81 and trained with the Naval Airforce for World War II and continued to fly small planes until he was about 50. I was hoping to find a simulator that was very easy to use that I could get for him to play on their laptop. He is not terribly computer literate, so it has to just play without a lot of work or special computer knowledge. Is this possible?

Try Fighter Ace at http://fighterace.ketsujin.com. Over 100 WWII planes (bombers, fighters, transports), $15 per month fee, download the software for no charge and try it offline or sign up for the 2-weeks free trial. Free tech support will help you get connected if you have any difficulties. Many of the players are retired military and the community is friendly and welcoming to new players. Many players join squads and use TeamSpeak software for voice comms, which makes in-flight coordination much easier and the flights more fun.

If you bought him this game:

IL-2 Sturmovik: 1946

I bet he could fly the planes he flew in WWII - If he's a pilot he'd probably want to play any flight sim with a joystick at the very least. I think that with a little help and patience IL2 would give him a real kick.
