Microsoft Flight Simulator has finally released on PC and Xbox One.
Here, we cover everything you need to know before jumping into the brand-new Flight Simulator.
The first time you jump into Flight Simulator, you may be shocked as to just how realistic the game is.
AIRBUS - Take to the skies with some of the biggest aircraft in the world!
This first experience is amazing, but due to the realism it isnt as easy as "Push and Go".
The First Flight training section will teach you the ropes. With sections including basic controls, instruments, take-off and landing, as well as much more!
You'll have a much more enjoyable experience after completing this tutorial.
Arguably the best feature of Flight Simulator is the ability to fly anywhere around the world with the click of a button.
If you head to the world map, you'll be able to find a list of "Points of Interest".
This highlights plcines like natural wonders and beautiful sceneries.
Once you've found the location you want to fly to, you'll need to choose a departure point. This will be some sort of airstrip or airport.
Which Plane is best for you?
There are three major types of Airplane in Microsoft Flight Simulator.
- Propeller Planes
- Airliners and Jets
PROPELLER - Smaller planes will allow you to view the land and Points of Interest with ease!
These planes will have different stats, meaning they'll have different roles for each scenario.
For longer trips, the Airliners are the better option, but if you're looking for a sightseeing trip, a slower propeller plane would be your best choice.
Weather and Environment
As a beginner, it can be daunting to jump into new weather systems.
With no clouds or heavy wind, you'll have a fairly easy time controling the plane and manouvering through the sky.
However, if you're looking for more of a challenge head to the weather settings in the active pause menu and challenge yourself with new and difficult scenarios
