Here’s every plane and airport featured at release in Microsoft Flight Simulator, grouped by whether you buy the Standard, Deluxe or Premium edition.
Microsoft Flight Simulator – the shiny new version of your dad’s favourite flight sim – is chock-full of “X times bigger than Skyrim” boasts. It’s the poster child for open-world oneupmanship.
Featuring a “vast and beautiful world that is our planet with more than 1.5 billion buildings, 2 trillion trees, mountains, roads, rivers and more” and “live traffic, real-time weather and animals”, the latest, Azure Cloud-powered Microsoft Flight Simulator is an enormous package.
But in actual fact, it’s three packages: Standard, Deluxe, and Premium Edition. They’re priced at £59.99, £79.99, and £109.99 respectively, and feature a different selection of aircraft and airports depending on the version of Microsoft Flight Simulator you buy.
We don’t expect this list to remain exhaustive forever. We’re sure Microsoft will either patch in more planes and airports or, more likely, sell them as DLC bundles at a later date. But right now, on the game’s run-in to release, here’s every airport and every plane that’s in Microsoft Flight Simulator.
