Fly four different campaigns of the World War I. The missions are very different and reach from patrol flights to fast attacks. You'll meet planes like Sopwith Camel, Nieuport Scout, SPAD S.XIII, Albatros D.III or Fokker Dr.I Triplane, to mention a few. The game is for both, beginners and experts as you can individually change the realism model.

The box contains lots of useful documentation. Empire included detailed full-colour terrain maps of all main scenario's: Metz, Nancy, Florange, Verdun, Cambrai, Arras, Douai, Apremont, St. Quentin and Amiens. They threw in a Complete Course of Flying Instruction as well. It is an original illustrated book written by Flight-Commander W.G. McMinnies and published in 1918 by Temple Press Limited, London (237 pp.). It's a complete flying guide and incredibly comprehensive.

Gold version

At the end of 1997, the game was re-released as Flying Corps Gold. This new version had Direct3D support, a new plane (Fokker D7), a mission editor, a new campaign and force feedback support. Multiplayer support was added as well, but internet play was quite buggy. Gamers who bought the original Flying Corps could partially update their game through the 1.1a patch. Direct3D support became available, but the new plane, the new campaign and the mission editor were left out.
