Flight Simulator X Gold Edition 
Flight Simulator X Gold is FSX Deluxe PLUS the Acceleration expansion pack released by Microsoft. FSX Gold brings you all the content from FSX Deluxe (22 aircraft, 21 detailed airports, 38 detailed cities, 55 structured missions and more) plus the full Accceleration Pack featuring three all-new aircraft (F/A-18A Hornet, EH-101 helicopter and P-51D Mustang), 20 new missions, Multiplayer Racing Mode and optional use of DirectX10 graphics capabilities. Acceleration also includes code from both of Microsoft's Service Packs, providing you with a fully up-to-date installation of FSX.

Cyborg V.1 Flight Stick
Saitek's joystick has all the features you need - a trigger and five buttons, twist action rudder control, throttle lever for smooth engine control, 'Point Of View' switch to change cockpit views, and powerful programming software which lets you create different button configurations for each aircraft you fly.

Flying Club 2 features three of the most popular General Aviation aircraft in the world - the PA28-181 Archer III, the twin-engined Beechcraft Duchess 76 and the R44 helicopter. All the aircraft are modelled in very high detail and have authentic and realistic avionics suites and an additional set of colour schemes as well as the default paint schemes. Also included is ultra-detailed scenery for Denham airfield just to the west of London, so not only can you fly all these aircraft, but you'll also have a new airfield at which to base them!

See the detailed description below for full details.


FLIGHT SIMULATOR X GOLD 

22 new aircraft

Fly one of 22 new aircraft, from the De Havilland DHC-2 Beaver floatplane and Grumman G-21A Goose to the AirCreation 582SL Ultralight and Maule M7-260C Orion with wheels and skis. You'll be amazed at the details, such as shaded rivets, reflective paint, and glint from glass and chrome. FSX Deluxe contains an Airbus for the first time with an accurate A321A! Fancy the glider in FS but can''t stand that there is no tow plane? FSX will also has that tow plane accurately represented with accurate tension modeling for realism.

55 detailed airports

The airport database has been upgraded and improved. FSX contains 24,000 airports internationally, with 1,200 being highly detailed due to their popularity. Each airport features artificial intelligence-controlled jetways, fuel trucks and moving baggage carts, allowing you to explore your hometown or venture to a favorite far-off city. The FSX design team emphasised their goal of expanding the realism seen in many of the stock North American airports to other parts of the world.

Weather

The sky has been greatly improved, with more realistic weather and graphics. Weather data was painstakingly collected from over 5,000 weather stations worldwide to accurately reproduce regional behavior. There are also five separate seasonal textures with 23  environmental zones that change depending on your specific location on the globe. This means not only will snow be on the ground in Montreal during the winter time, but you will only see appropriate foliage and vegetation on the ground as well. Rain effects have also improved - not only has the rain on the windshield improved during flight, but the glaze  effects on roads and taxiways are impressive as well. 

Also for the first time, star gazing/navigation will be possible. The FSX team has accurately placed over 10,000 stars in their correct locations. These stars will also be easy to see, considering the maximum viewing altitude has been increased to 18,000 miles high. 

Scenery

24 million roads have been accurately modeled in the FSX scenery database. Much of the ground elevation, roads and textures have been pulled from imaging collected from the space shuttle itself! On these roads, you will notice traffic for the first time. The effect is brilliant - not only will the vehicles move down the road, they will also change lanes and use signal indicators. At night, each vehicle has a pair of headlights and taillights. If you are flying over water, you will notice a complete new assortment of boats which follow their own accurate paths internationally. This means that you will be able to see oil tankers and cruise ships on those long Trans-Atlantic flights.

In addition, animals and their patterns will be represented in extraordinary detail. From giraffes and lions in Africa, to whales in the ocean, you can track each animal and its movements from the ground or the sky.

Missions

With more than 50 new missions to choose from, aviators can build their skill levels and engage in even more stimulating game play than before. Players can choose to compete in the Red Bull air race, land on a moving  school bus, race a jet-propelled truck racer, rescue workers off an exploding oil rig, or bring relief materiel to the Congo, while being able to keep track of their progress on each mission. In addition to the mission layout and database being greatly improved, there are also rewards for good technique and goals achieved.

'Shared Skies'

Through increased online gameplay capabilities, FSX offers players a connected world where they can choose whom they want to be, from air traffic controller to pilot or co-pilot, as they interact with other aviators around the globe by chatting in real time via headset and keyboard. The new "Shared  Skies' capability enables two users to connect on separate computers to fly a single aircraft together. This has limitless simulation possibilities, and when you connect through the multiplayer mode, you can pass control of the airplane to each other. Instructors can also instruct trainees how to fly, while keeping a constant watch on the controls if anything goes wrong.

REAL SCENERY AIRFIELDS DENHAM

Denham is located to the west of London and has been a very well known GA and training airfield for many years.

The airfield has been painstakingly created to the very highest standards by our in-house development team and includes all the major buildings that make Denham instantly recognisable to anybody who has visited it. A wholly new feature in this release is the appearance of snow on the ground during December and January, thanks to unique technology not found in any other product!

From the authentic buildings and realistic textures to the static and AI aircraft and animations, there really is no more faithful rendition of Denham than this one!

Ground features

  • Ground textures have all been created from high-resolution aerial photographs.
  • Optimised to blend in perfectly with the default FSX terrain and Just Flight's VFR Real Scenery add-ons (or other VFR photo-scenery products).
  • Includes the nearby golf course.
  • Photorealistic ground textures extend beyond the airfield perimeter to provide an accurate depiction of the airfield surroundings during take-off and landing.
  • Spring, summer, autumn and winter variations in ground texture automatically change to match the seasonal changes of the default FSX terrain.
  • Unique option to switch to ground snow textures in December and January. (Many third-party airfield add-ons cannot switch to snow textures.)
  • Option to switch to a single-season version for complete compatibility with VFR Real Scenery.
  • High-resolution (10-metre) terrain mesh for the airfield and immediate surroundings.
  • Extensive custom Autogen for the photorealistic areas around the airfield.
  • Even the swimming pool behind Biggles Restaurant has ‘real’ water!


Building features

  • The high-detail airfield buildings are based on up-to-date research and photographs which accurately represent the current state of the airfield after many recent changes.
  • Detailed models of buildings outside the perimeter, but closely associated with the airfield, are also included - the Air Cadets hut, the Biggles Restaurant and even Aunt Mabel’s Cottage!
  • Custom night textures for ground and buildings.
  • Known Visual Reference Points used by pilots when approaching the airfield, such as Chalfont St. Giles Church and Harefield Hospital, are also modelled.


Additional features

Many extra-high-detail objects to give that extra touch of realism...

  • Fuel pumps
  • Storage tanks
  • Fencing
  • Hedging
  • Picnic benches
  • Antennas
  • Step ladders
  • Hoists
  • Aircraft undergoing maintenance
  • Helicopter landing dollies
  • Well over 100 static objects
  • Cars in the various car parks
  • Parked aircraft around the airfield
  • Helicopters on the aprons
  • Additional custom aircraft traffic to make the airfield as busy as it is in real life
  • Additional road traffic


Animations

  • People walking around or waving at the aircraft
  • Cars and trucks moving on the roads and in the car parks
  • Tractors in the surrounding fields
  • AI (Artificial Intelligence) aircraft


Special effects

  • Flocks of birds fly above the field
  • Airfield beacon


Take full control!

You have full control over how many features are displayed, using the Airfield Settings program and the standard FSX scenery settings.


Manual

The manual features a history of the airfield as well as detailed information about the various Settings options.
