Do you remember almost 25 years ago (1982) when Microsoft released Flight Simulator for IBM PC? Check the screenshot below (from The Old Flight Simulator Vault):


To celebrate 25 years of Flight Simulator on PCs, Microsoft has released Flight Simulator X. The software comes in two editions:

Standard Edition
- 2 DVD
- 18 airplanes
- 40 high-detail airports (16 new to Flight Simulator)
- 28 high-detail cities
- 30+ structured missions

Deluxe Edition
- 2 DVD
- 24 airplanes
- 45 high-detail airports (21 new to Flight Simulator)
- 38 high-detail cities
- 50+ structured missions
- Glass panel (G1000) cockpit
- Tower controller

Now check out a screenshot, to see the difference:



A free trial, with two airports, three missions, and three different aircraft is available for download (about 640MB!) on the Microsoft Flight Simulator X official website now.
