    Microsoft Flight Simulator's 40th Anniversary Edition

    The 40th Anniversary Edition, a completely free offering for those who already own Microsoft Flight Simulator or play it via Xbox Game Pass, is a comprehensive celebration of the franchise with both a tribute to our past as well as an introduction to new and highly anticipated aircraft types.

    The nod to the past will re-introduce some classic airports and several of the most famous planes from earlier versions including Microsoft Flight Simulator X and Microsoft Flight Simulator 2004: A Century of Flight!

    We have also listened to our community and will incorporate the most requested aircraft types: helicopters, brought to life with an all-new Fluid Dynamics Simulation, gliders that allow you to experience the planet in a totally unique way and a highly detailed, true-to-life airliner!

    Here is just a small sampling of what simmers will find in the Microsoft Flight Simulator 40th Anniversary Edition:

    Historical Aircraft:

    • Wright Flyer
    • Ryan NYP (“Spirit of St. Louis”)
    • Douglas DC-3
    • De Havilland Canada DHC-2-Beaver

    Helicopters:

    • Bell-407
    • Guimbal Cabri G2

    Gliders:

    • DG Flugzeugbau LG8-18
    • DG Flugzeugbau DG1001E neo

    True-to-Life Airliner:

    • Airbus A310

    Many of these aircraft were made in collaboration with the best third-party developers including iniSimulations, MilViz, Bluemesh, Aeroplane Heaven, and others.

      You do know there is little difference between a DC-3 and C-47 right? The first C-47 were literally ones they took from the airline production lines, it was only later in the war that any real changes were made, and even then, they weren't major changes aside from the cargo door, and the jump door, and the MATS planes were essentially unchanged from the civilian production model.

      >>>The 40th Anniversary Edition, a completely free offering for those who already own Microsoft Flight Simulator or play it via Xbox Game Pass<<<

      How about us folks who bought every addition of Flight Simulator since its inception? As well as the hundreds of 3rd party addon's to fix what you should have done before each and every version release. No? Only rewarding those who bought the latest version are you? Shame on you.
