Microsoft Flight is the successor to the discontinued Microsoft Flight Simulator series. It is a "free-to-play" title set to appeal to a much wider audience than the previous flight simulator games. Additional content like aircraft or sceneries are available through the Games for Windows Marketplace.
The core game includes the ICON A5, an amphibious light aircraft, the Boeing-Stearman Model 75 biplane and the Big Island of Hawaii scenery. A new mission system was introduced where players can perform stunt-flying and landing challenges, take various jobs at the airport or just enter free-flight mode.
