Despite its name, it's not an advanced flight model, it's an alternative flight model.

The common conception is that the default flight model is more realistic. Though, there's no real satisfaction over both available flight models. The default flight model has better realistic performance at higher speeds, the other flight model has better performance on "side slipping".

Basically the advanced flight model is a never finished concept model.

User experience

The advanced fight model has quite a different feel. Once seized, the pilot has more control over the nose bearing of the aircraft, and thereby increasing the weapons stand off capability (faster response). The drawback is that the aircraft tends to drift in the air like a tube floating over the water surface.
