The graphics, scale and detail of this game seem to be awesome! Since it's Microsoft, the world is correctly scaled and detailed thanks to Bing Maps with improvisation being applied where necessary (I've heard mainly under bridges). It releases August 18th if anyone is interested that didn't already know, and there's three tiers of the game available ($60, $90 and $120), with each tier unlocking more airplanes and more detailed airports (but all 37,000 some airports in the world are accessible even in the base $60 version, just not as detailed).

Everything you need to start your in-home training. No need to travel here first from Saudi Arabia to take flight school.

Cool and all but I dunno about giving Mr Gates any more of my $

Posts and likes are not mine.

That's fair. Haha

You can technically play with a mouse and keyboard and/or Xbox controller, but you can go all out with a full flight setup if you wish.

Pretty cool. I would be interested to see where this goes as far as flight training is concerned.

I'm pretty sure actual company simulators use a different, private model for training, but the original MSF and even X-Plane have been used as tools for a long time now.
