    Ein einzigartiges Flugerlebnis -

    Solo Flight ist ein interessanter, anspruchsvoller und primärer Flugausbildgs-simulator, mit dem Fliegen leicht wird. Das Spiel wurde von einem echten Kampfflieger konzipiert, der 200 Leutnants der Luftwaffe das Fliegen lehrte. Solo Flight vom ersten Rollen zum Start, über Ihren ersten Soloflug und bis zur Herausforderung des Luftposteinsatzes! Solo Flight ist mit allen Instrumenten, mehrfachen Flugnavigationskarten, Notfallübungen, der einzigartigen dreidimensionalen Flugperspektive "im Schlitz" ausgerüstet, macht Spaß und ist eine Herausforderung für Piloten jeden Alters!!

Advertisement in Computer Games, July/August 1984:


    You're alone, flying a U.S. Mail plane. Suddenly you hit dense clouds and your engine overheats and may cut out any minute. Do you risk flying on to your destination 80 miles ahead, or do you attempt a treacherous emergency landing at a nearby socked-in airport?

    If anything comes close to the real sensation of flying, this is it. The thrills. The responsibilities. The fears.

    With SOLO FLIGHT's user-friendly program, learning to fly is easy. Just grab the joystick and take off. To navigate, you need your instrument panel and flight manual. Plus a little skill during bad weather flying.

    But SOLO FLIGHT isn't always a joyflight. There's always the unexpected. The gusty winds. The blinding clouds. The failing instruments.

    If you think you're ready for the real life challenge of SOLO FLIGHT, hop in the cockpit.

    And get set for everything you least expect.
