So true to every recent Microsoft Flight Simulator this will have every runway in the world, Nav aids, and highly detailed cities, and the landscape is made from actual satellite mapping.

Alpha invites went out today through next week, and it is due sometime this year. Read insider FAQ as well as the home page for more details.

To make it even more realistic.;)

I believe this is the last Alpha testing before they start Beta testing. So my guess would be no sooner than Summer. But 2020 is really all we know for sure.

Me too..:D

I owned just about every flight sim on the market in the glory days of the 1980's / 90's but sadly since then most f sims have lost that old clean uncluttered look.

Yep, I've had my eye on that one too. Ought to be real fun using pure navigation across long stretches with little or no Nav aids. :) And the graphics of Alaska look really nice too.

Yeah we can already do that in FSX (below), it's easy in good weather, but if you add some fog it's not so easy..:D

I had FSX, now P3D never flew VFR, lol. Always instruments. I know I can navigate with maps etc... It just those clouds blocking mountains in my path that worries me :D

Here's a video that shows Pre Alpha footage from September or earlier. This video is really worth watching with satellite accuracy of the earth down to 3CM, with every city and airport on the planet. It is truly an amazing simulator. The clouds are made from the humidity in the air and contain wind shear etc, just like real life. I could go on and on, just watch the video :D

With the last one they did do military expansions after a bit.

The last one was great fun. Lightning storms, birds flying in your engines, everything. Its on Steam if you want to play before this new one.

I remember playing Flight Simulator 98 on PC back in the day. Even for its time I thought the graphics looked realistic. :)

I used MSFS 4.0.  I only had like a 90 MB hard drive. The Flight sims install size was 1.56 MB expanding even larger just to give younger people an idea of how PC's have adapted just over the last 30 years.
