"A Century of Flight" gives would-be pilots the experience of operating a variety of planes built over the past 100 years.
- Virtual pilots also can climb into the cockpit of the Vickers F.B.27A Vimy, a World War 1 bomber; the Curtiss JN-4D "Jenny," a stunt-flying plane; the Ford 4-AT-E Trimotor, or Tin Goose, the first all-metal transport aircraft; the Model 5B Vega, a popular plane flown by famous pilots Amelia Earhart and Wiley Post; and the Douglas DC-3, the staple aircraft of the airliner and transport industry in the 1930s and '40s.
- While "A Century of Flight" offers a flight back in time, the present day isn't forgotten. PC pilots can take a crack at flying 15 present-day aircraft, such as the Boeing 777-300, the Robinson R22 Beta II helicopter and the Cessna Skyhawk SP Model 172.
- And pilots get much more in "A Century of Flight" than the rare opportunity to virtually fly 24 different aircraft. The simulator also features interactive multimedia content about aircraft, briefings, interactive lessons and more.
- A dynamic weather system also provides a more robust experience. Players can experience rain, fog, drizzle, clouds and hot hazy days with the simulator's improved Real World Weather system.
- Three-dimensional virtual cockpits are also part of the pilots' package. This feature far surpasses previous versions, enabling pilots to operate aircraft controls, to tune radios, and to flip switches. Air-traffic control is also interactive and updated during flight simulations.
- The award-winning Flight Simulator has progressed from low-resolution, basic graphics to realistic views inside and outside the cockpit. When the title was launched in 1983, it included three simple airports; now there are 24,000 from which to choose.
