about 

"The Aerosoft GmbH was founded in 1991 at the Airport Paderborn/Lippstadt. In the beginning, the development of software for training and exam preparation of pilots as well as the distribution of professional procedure trainers were the main focal points. Since 1992 add-ons for the Microsoft Flight Simulator are being released. Also in that year, the ACP (Aircraft Control Panel) marked the first own hardware release. The year 2002 saw the introduction of the label “Train World” for worldwide publishing of add-ons for the Microsoft Train Simulator. Later on additional simulations followed, like the series “World of Subways” and OMSI. In 2012, the company expanded its flight simulation portfolio with the release of “X-Plane 10”. These days, the label Aerosoft houses an even broader range of titles like “ATC Global”, “Fernbus Coach Simulator”, “Emergency Call 112 – The Fire Fighting Simulation”, and the truck simulator “On the Road”.

About 30 employees and more than 50 freelancers work for Aerosoft today. In conjunction with the numerous cooperations, Aerosoft can be counted as one of the world’s leading publishers in the simulation genre. Thanks to strong distribution partners in Europe, South America and the USA, Aerosoft today generates over 50% of their turnover abroad.Numerous international awards from the industry and customers alike repeatedly prove the high quality standard of the products.

Increasing interest from airlines, pilots and flight instructors illustrate the great realism of Aerosoft’s software. For sales and software development, Aerosoft is supported by the subsidiary and sister companies Simware, Brussels; Aerosoft USA, Inc., Florida and PAD-Labs, Germany."

I would like to see a flying sim for every period of airborne conflict the United States has participated in, Dawn of Aces, WW II, Korea, Vietnam, Desert Storm. I would like to have a civilian simulator that would allow the players to fly Cessna's, Pipers, WarBirds, over the US using current IFR and VFR rules. I would like to have a Total Sim series that included great land and tank battles (the WarBirds team tells me we could do that with WarBirds III!)"

about  "


Mission Studios was created when Velocity Development Corporation, the publisher of Interceptor, JetFighter I, JetFighter II, and the network tank battle game Spectre, split into two companies. Mission Studios was formed and immediately continued work on the ever popular JetFighter series in collaboration with simulation developer Robert Dinnerman.

Working again with Mr. Dinnerman, Mission Studios published JetFighter III to critical and popular acclaim. In a crowded field of combat flight simulations, JetFighter III stood out with cutting-edge graphics, intense action and unparalleled ease-of-use. In fact, JetFighter III was one of the first PC flight simulations to embrace the emerging crop of 3D graphics accelerators.

Simultaneously to the JetFighter III project, Mission Studios began developing products for the United States military. Using its expertise in 3D graphics and simulation, Mission Studios developed software technology for the F-14 LANTIRN training system used by the U.S. Navy.

Prior to the completion of JetFighter III, Mission Studios was acquired by Take-Two Interactive Software and continues to operate as a wholly-owned subsidiary. Shortly thereafter, Take-Two (TTWO) became a publicly traded company, and Mission Studios began developing the next product in the JetFighter series, JetFighter IV.

As Mission Studios current entertainment project, JetFighter IV: Fortress America continues the legacy the previous products had built, eclipsing the series' prior achievements while maintaining its strengths. With four times the terrain detail as JetFighter III, and improving upon the easiest flight control system available, JetFighter IV delivers an intense aerial combat experience above the San Francisco Bay area.
