The initial screen. This is shown when the simulation first loads. It can be suppressed if required
Each option from the main menu brings up a similar sub menu.
The extensive help system is windows based. These windows overlay the flight sim menus and at some resolutions the flight sim menus can be seen around the edges
The player can access the aircraft selection menu from within a flight via a drop down menu. The currently selected aircraft shows in the small window.
At night time the stars come out and the red cabin lights come on. This screen shot shows a sub menu that is accessed via the left mouse button.

Choosing 'Select A Flight' from the main menu brings up another menu with three categories; Challenges, Flights and Adventures. The menus overlay each other and don't always hide each other

It is possible to configure the flight simulator to accept a new controller during the course of a flight. This is accessed by selecting Options on the drop down menu
Using separate windows for every player choice does mean they can stack up and this looks untidy.
All keyboard assignments can be adjusted to suit the player. This too can be accomplished in-flight
