    Microsoft Flight Simulator

    Thank You

    On behalf of the entire Microsoft Flight Simulator Team, we'd like to express our sincere appreciation to the community for all the valuable feedback we've received from the community on the first episode of the Feature Discovery Series. Though this is only our first step in our collaboration with you, the importance of this step to the team cannot be overstated. For all the feedback, all the effort spent writing comments, asking questions, daring to hold out hope when the past has been littered with unmet expectations. We hear you, and we are going to do our best to keep building this experience with you. In the meantime, thank you. It's been a great boost to the team reading all the feedback from Lionel's presentation on the world we're building, which is big, in case you missed that.

    Episode 2

    On October 24th we are releasing the next episode in our Feature Discovery Series. Episode 2 (SKY) features a detailed look at the world we fly in, and the importance of this world in the simulator we are building.
