I recently got interested in Prop Sim, and the 1st name that came to my mind was Pacific Fighter. But I couldn't find a demo to try out, am I missing something?

There is no demo. There is an IL2 demo but the two are different. Do yourself a favor if you are interested in prop sims... just buy it. It is a decent sim... I recommend that you go the whole 9 yards and get Forgotten Battles ASces GOLD which contains Forgotten Battles and the Aces Expansion pack... and also get PF... consider it a 5 CD multifront sim. It is a resource hog though....... but it is also highly scalable.

The IL-2 demo (http://www.il2sturmovik.com/download/demo.php)probably doesn't accurately reflect the current nature of the game, but it might give you an adequate taste. Remember that it was based on the original IL-2; when "Forgotten Battles" (essentially, a re-release of IL-2 with more material) was about to be released there was a clip where the developer was asked whether there would be a demo for FB; he joked that IL-2 was the demo for FB ... I don't think the demo has been updated since then and there hasn't been one for Pacific Fighters.

Try the IL-2 demo. If you like it, FB and PF are very similar in game style except for the obvious difference of PF having carrier operations.
