Microsoft Flight Coming For Free This Spring

Fancy flying across the 'Big Island of Hawaii'? Than Microsoft Flight might be just the ticket, offering a load of real-world planes to fly over real locales, from an exotic island paradise to sprawling cityscapes, all of which will be bolstered by additional DLC.

You can sign up to join the Microsoft Flight beta here, or wait until it releases as a free download this spring, at which point signing in via your Games for Windows Live account will automatically earn you free add-on content. This free DLC includes the legendary Boeing Stearman plane, extra missions, access to achievements and an Online Pilot Profile to log your stats.

There'll be daily challenges to complete too, and you'll also have the opportunity to virtually fly the all-new ICON A5 before real-world production of the aircraft begins at the end of 2012. Microsoft Flight will be taking off on GFWL this spring.

I signed up for this beta quite a while ago now, but haven't heard back either way.  I'm a fair bit excited to try it out, as it'd be a great way to show off my Eyefinity setup :P
I like my women how I like my coffee: ground up and in the freezer.

The doctors say his chances are 50/50... but there's only a 10% chance of that.

Just increased my gamerscore by 5 points by crashing my plane into a hot air balloon during the tutorial.  Game's (probably) fun.

I actually hate flying games, which is a result of a common childhood traumatic experience.

C-46 Preview


A king-sized bush plane that's perfect for the wilds of Alaska, the C-46 was originally built as a cargo and troop transport during WWII. This twin-engine aircraft can carry up to 17,000 pounds of fuel and cargo to almost any remote and rugged landing strip. Its relatively high cruise speed of 200 kts and max range of 1500 miles make it the perfect cargo aircraft for Alaska. No cockpit is included.
