Microsoft Flight is a flight simulator that gathers real planes and scenarios, allowing the user to participate in fun missions that facilitate the learning of the different aircraft available, and know the basics of the flight in case of being a novice pilot.
In the first place you must select an airplane, having a great variety of models, including from old airplanes to planes of last generation. Some of the models available: Boeing Stearman, P-51 Mustang, Maule M-7-260C, Vans RV-6A. Either model can be customized before you start flying.
There are several modes of simulation (both online and offline), and various scenarios available that stand out for a great realism, the user can identify real landscapes, mountains, islands, archipelagos and seas, with an excellent level of detail. The airports are also real, and their designs are faithful reflections of reality.
As the game progresses, and successful participation in different flight missions is achieved, the user is acquiring experience points that will then serve to address new and increasingly complex experiences. The complexity of the tests is increasing, presenting all kinds of obstacles and climatic adversities very well simulated. The experience also serves to start piloting aircraft with passengers.
If you register on the official MS Flight website, you can access all types of statistics, and track the missions in which you participate. If you participate in missions in online multiplayer mode, you can consult comparisons with the missions of other friendly users. During the missions that are done together it is possible to chat with the other participants, both via text and by voice.
From the application it is possible to access the LIVE Marketplace, a shop where you can choose and acquire new aircraft, which Microsoft offers periodically available to users.
Users have a Google+ community where they can access tutorials and videos in Spanish to learn the details of the game, use of controls, types of missions and everything needed to start flying.
