  • Microsoft Flight Simulator history
  • content_pasteThis website IS dedicated to the detailed description of the Microsoft Flight Simulator history. This in fact means, that it includes subLOGIC Flight Simulator and few relate add-ons as well. In my opinion, it is necessary to save the information for history. My website started in 2005 and I hope that it will be the most accurate and valuable source of information for you. - Josef HavlĂ­k.

  • Wright Flyer, First flight 1903
  • content_paste"Today we can easily imagine the exhilaration of that first flight, but we may not at first pause to consider the realities of the airborne experience: wooden propellors driven by bicycle chains, muslin-covered wings, an engine generating 12 horsepower. Takeoffs and landings are unpredictable at best, and the first successful flight lasted all of 12 seconds. The elegance of such astonishing success belies a crucible of self-sacrifice and daredevil perseverance."

Oh, and it's at night in a Vought Corsair, which Microsoft thoughtfully provided for us in every copy of Flight Sim 2004.
    And then I land at Sydney International Airport... probably in the wrong direction...
