February 29 was the release date
for Microsoft Flight. This is a partial quote from their
website. "Prepare for takeoff! On the heels of a successful beta,
we’re excited to announce that “Microsoft Flight” will be
available to download worldwide for free starting February
They have some great videos of the new product. Check out the
site and see if it's something that would be fun to own or just
give it a try. I'm focusing on the "download worldwide for free"
can't go wrong.
"Microsoft Flight lets players jump into the fun, freedom,
and adventure of flight with no special hardware or past
experience. If you have a mouse and a PC, you can fly!"

X-Plane has been
around quite a while and rivals FSX in many areas and surpasses
it in others. Many simmers are looking at this title as their
next new flight simulator as an alternative to Microsoft Flight.
The new release is version 10 and it has a lot of improvements
over X-Plane-9. However no software is perfect and there is a
review of the software from one user and I will stress these are
his opinions only.

Fly Legacy is the free version of the original Fly. This open
source version is maintained by a French group that has
developed it, removed some bugs and offer it as open source.

Flight Simulator early on. There are still many forums dedicated
to this Fly, FlyII and Fly 2K. You can obtain a download and
