Description

Even back in 1982, Microsoft's first release of Flight Simulator was advanced enough to meet FAA regulations, giving players full control of the instrument panel. The sim is loaded with features, configurable for any experience level, and includes more than 20 airports with varied terrain.

Trivia

Basis

In fact, an earlier version of this game was published by Sublogic before it signed a contract with Microsoft: Flight Simulator.

Benchmark

Anecdotal evidence from the period suggests that Microsoft Flight Simulator 1.0 was used as a benchmark program. It was said that if one's computer could run MSFS 1.0, it was 100% MS-DOS-compatible, and if it couldn't, it wasn't.
