Description

2002's version of Microsoft's long running series of non-combat, commercial flight simulators. The game uses a completely new 3D graphics engine which features photorealistic terrain as well as some nifty effects like jet contrails, volumetric clouds and a completely 3D virtual cockpit for each of the 12 planes in the game (which include the new Cessna 208 Caravan Floatplane and Boeing 747-400).

Other additions come in the form of a database of over 21,000 world airports, downloadable real-time weather as well as an ATC (Air Traffic Control) module for realistic instrumental flying which is shared by all the AI pilots.
