Microsoft Flight Simulator is a flight simulator developed by Microsoft for its Windows operating system . It is the most used one among the few civil flight simulators of user level that exist presently, in part thanks to the general notions on aviation, in spite of the criticisms to the model of flight made by the communities of virtual air pilots. Flight Simulator is one of the most used ones worldwide, highly appreciated by enthusiastic amateurs, professional pilots, apprentices or newcomers. With its instructor and classes of flight, you can be initiated in the basic know-how on how to steer an airplane. It also contains a detailed meteorology system, a system of failures of the airplane and a 3D cabin almost complete, with the gadgets of a basic airplane. There is a great community for the Microsoft Flight Simulator, in part because of the structure of flight simulator that permits numerous modifications to be introduced. Also, there are many virtual companies, where the pilots can perform their tasks as virtual pilots, like in an air company. Flight Simulator X, or FSX, is the tenth and current version of the flight simulator. The new characteristics include new airplanes, the improvement of the multiplayer support , including the possibility of two players flying a single airplane, and the occupation of the control tower, and the improvement of landscapes with greater resolution of textures. Also it is the first one of the series to be published exclusively in DVD due to limitations of space.
The 11.0 version brings some improvements and enhancements to the already successful flight simulator.
