    Microsoft Flight Simulator

    At X019, we're thrilled to reveal many of the great aircraft manufacturers we are partnering with to make Microsoft Flight Simulator the most realistic flight simulation yet. As you saw in our new trailer, we have a broad range of aircraft, including commercial airliners, business jets, and general aviation aircraft, all from the most renowned manufacturers.

    The breadth of partnerships we have forged for the next generation of Microsoft Flight Simulator goes far beyond what was done for previous titles. We are determined to make this sim, and all of its components, as authentic as possible.

    The aircraft partnerships we're announcing today include (in alphabetical order):

    • Airbus
    • The Boeing Company
    • CubCrafters
    • Daher
    • Diamond Aircraft Industries
    • ICON Aircraft
    • Robin Aircraft
    • Textron Aviation

    We're excited to continue working with these great partners and will share more information on additional partnerships as we approach Microsoft Flight Simulator's launch in 2020.

    If you're joining us in London this week for X019, please swing by our booth at the Copper Box Arena and get hands-on with Microsoft Flight Simulator yourself. Thank you for all the support!

      That looks really incredible, but I sure hope they also focus on ATC. In FS2004 and FSX it's been quite mundane. No SIDS, no STARS, no vectors, no holding patterns, no traffic stacking, etc, etc. I so want to see good ATC with this new Sim. If they say "as authentic as possible" then that better mean ATC as well.

      One report from someone that got some hands on time at X019 mentions the developers are working on the ATC.

      Kind of how it was when FSX first released. Since they are using Bing for the maps, I am sure they will be using Bing for the weather information as well. Though I could be wrong and they could have gone back to Jeppsen, but they haven't been listed in the partners, yet.

      Is it possible that they can do it in different languages, for example, is it Spanish?
