DescriptionMicrosoft Flight Simulator X or FSX is the tenth version of Microsoft's line of civilian flight simulators. It updates the series to take advantage of up-to-date technologies including DirectX 10 and features much improved graphics and multiplayer support in the form of "Shared Skies" feature, which allows multiple players to share the cockpit.
The standard version is aimed at casual players and features 18 planes, 40 high-detail airports, 28 high-detail cities and 30+ structured missions.
The player can choose between flying predefined missions or free flight anywhere he or she wants in single player or multiplayer mode. The whole world is modelled in the game and in this version the maximum altitude is 100 million feet. New aircraft in this version include Airbus A321, DHC-2 Beaver floatplane, Boeing 737-800 and a new ultralight, Air Creation Trike 582 SL.

Later LicensingWhen Microsoft closed the ACES studio in 2009, Lockheed Martin licensed the source code and has continued to develop the simulator, releasing updated versions under the name 'Prepar3d' (P3D) - not intended for gaming/entertainment, but available with Professional, Developer and Academic licensing - the latter applicable for self-education purposes, just as the original title. Existing add-ons for FS-X are not guaranteed to work in P3D but many add-on developers have released conversion tools to make their products compatible.
