    I hope they return to the old format and not try to "MS Flight" it. What a turd that was.
    There's little info yet, but would almost have to be on both Xbox and PC.
    Looks awesome.

    I got into flightsim then got my private pilot's license. It turns out you save a decent amount of money on training/lessons because you already know quite a bit.
    Ain't nothin' like the real thing, babeee.

    I was into Jaynes back in the day. Never was very successful with the carrier landings though. I wasted a lot of F18's.

    The Acceleration add-on to Flightsim X has a carrier landing scenario which I still have saved, starting in in the pattern, and load up now and again. I bet I only make it one in twenty times.
    Part of the problem is the sim, as you can't easily see the throttle and it's hard to make power/thrust adjustments.

    For anyone new to flightsim, the MS versions came with quite a few pre-made scenarios ( tutorials and missions) that were pretty cool. Eg, in one you had to fly a chopper in to rescue oil rig workers before the rig explodes (pre-dated Deepwater Horizon, btw) and in another you're the chase plane for a Space Shuttle landing and iirc you have to intercept it, follow it in, the break off at the end and go land.

    I liked the mission flying into Area 51 on one of the Janet planes. That one was one of my favorites.

    FSX had an Area 51 mission, too. I'd forgotten all about that.
