    Scopri che cosa si prova a volare e combattere sia con i primi velivoli da brivido che con i più moderni aerei da combattimento. Prova il ruvido realismo delle battaglie aeree della prima guerra mondiale. L'ampio lavoro di ricerca, la modellazione minuziosa e le più avanzate tecniche di programmazione hanno portato ad una accuratezza storica senza precedenti, ad un'ambientazione talmente viva e reale da togliere il respiro, a manovre di volo così autentiche da mettere alla prova anche gli stomaci più resistenti.

    THE ULTIMATE FIRST WORLD WAR FLIGHT SIMULATOR

    "The engine started with a roar. I pressed the throttle and the machine began to pick up speed, and suddenly I could not help but notice that I was really flying." Baron Manfred Von Richthofen, 1892-1918

    Have you ever dreamed of a time when to fly an aircraft was to face your opponent at close quarters, relying on your wits and skill to survive?

    Flying Corps allows you a glimpse of that time... ...a time when your plane was made of canvas and wood, with only a 150 hp engine under the cowl. A time of honour, skill, guts, pluck, and heroes.

    There were no HUD's or radar-guided missiles in World War One. It was a pilot, his 90mph aircraft, his machine-gun, and his chums.

    Welcome to that time...

    Welcome to Flying Corps.

Back of the Jewel Case:
    Find out how it feels to fly and fight with the thrilling forerunners to modern fighter planes and experience the gritty realism of airborne conflict in World War 1. Forget the luxury of contemporary firepower and equipment, in 1917 aerial combat was intimate and the tools of the trade limited to a machine gun, nerves of steel, sharp wits, reflexes and chance.

    Extensive research, meticulous modeling and advanced programming techniques mean unprecedented historical accuracy, breathtaking live landscapes, and authentic aircraft handling to unsettle the strongest stomaches. The result is more than mere flight simulation. Flying Corps is an exacting and exhilarating rendition of life and death in the skies of the Great War.

    • Join the Hat-In-The-Ring Squadron, the Jasta II Squadron, the Royal Flying Corps or take part in the Battle of Cambrai and attempt to better the skills and kills of airborne aces, such as, Eddie Rickenbacker and Baron Manfred Von Richthofen.
    • Feel the benefits of detailed flight models in action and discover the true meaning of adverse yaw, gyroscopic force, torque, slipstream and inherent structural integrity.
    • Beautifully built (and customizable) aircraft include the Sopwith Camel, Nieuport Scout, Albatross DIII and Fokker DRI Triplane.
