To control the planes use the arrow keys. Throttle is PgUp and PgDn. Flaps can be turned on with F and off with Shift+F. Other keys can be found here:

It's a nice way to see your home town or visit a holiday destination from the comfort of your armchair!

You could also explore some areas in a Geography lesson and add an extra dimension.
