Relive the golden age of aviation with ‘The Early Years of Flight’ from First Class Simulations, the latest add-on pack for Microsoft Flight Simulator X: Steam Edition.
In the age when a hardy band of adventurers first took to the air in direct defiance of gravity, this compelling collection of early aircraft features five machines that smashed records and finally allowed mankind to break the bonds holding us to terra firma.
Join with the Wright Brothers and take to the air for a tour of Ohio in the iconic Model B aircraft or recreate the achievement of Louis Blériot in a death defying crossing of the English Channel in the Blériot XI monoplane. Strap yourself into the Santos-Dumont 14-bis and share the elation of performing the first unaided take-off of a heavier than air aircraft. The Goliescu Avioplan with its idiosyncratic design and equally unpredictable performance may be a challenge to fly but was the first aircraft to utilise a tubular design that paved the way for aircraft of today. The Handley Page E is widely acclaimed as the first passenger aircraft, although comfort was not an option with the passenger seated precariously behind the pilot in a small bucket seat open to the outside air!
