A little over shadowed by tomorrows massive bandwidth destroying Windows 8, Microsoft Flight is now available to download and play for free. While I’m not terribly thrilled with this release, I am still enjoying it. It doesn’t feel like a simulator but more of a game, which was by design. Still, we’ll see what the future brings with add-ons and new regions to play in! I’m grabbing it right now!
We’re proud to open the hangar doors and present the future of flying on your PC. Whether you’re a complete newcomer to aviation or an experienced PC pilot, we believe you’ll enjoy flying with us.
The release of Flight represents the culmination of three years of hard work and experimentation as we worked to reimagine the 30-year-old Flight Simulator franchise, push forward the evolution of the PC flying experience, and bring the thrill and wonder of flight to whole new audiences.
There’s a lot to do in Flight’s version of Hawaii, from basic flight instruction to hunts for hidden Aerocaches, from experimenting with different aircraft to showing off your skills in aerobatics challenges, from ferrying passengers and cargo around the islands to advancing your career as a pilot. We hope you’ll have fun exploring the environment we’ve built.
