Microsoft Flight Simulator 2000: Professional Edition Screenshots (Windows)

User Screenshots

Windows version

This screen displays as the flight loads. A CD must be in the drive and this displays as it's being validated.
The flight simulation loads and displays this screen. The size is fixed and, on a screen that's displaying at a higher resolution, the 'Getting Started' video plays in a really tiny window.
This is how the menu looks at a higher resolution. The top menu bar is not active yet. The player must select 'Flying Lessons' or 'Fly Now' to progress
The 'What's New' section is a video sequence that shows the new planes & features. It also displays in a fixed size window.
Flying Lessons is a sequence of pre-planned flights for Private Pilots, Instrument rating, Commercial & Airline pilots. The simulation also allows Converted Lessons to be loaded.
The first lesson is purely about taking off. That bit was easy.
In addition to the standard cockpit view the player can use the spot plane view to look at the aircraft in-flight. here they can move around the aircraft and view it from any angle
This is the menu option that allows alternate views to be selected
Flight Planning is an option from the menu bar that runs along the top of the screen.
Flight Planning - The airport selection screen. Apart from the title the Departure & Destination screens are identical.
Here a flight from Orlando (USA) to Munich (Germany) has been planned. Flights can be saved, edited and replayed.
