Do you know what aviation needs really badly right now? A new version of the long-defunct and much beloved Microsoft Flight Simulator. Not just to get young people interested in the hugely inaccessible world of flying, but to leverage new technology that can nearly mirror putting them in the cockpit of an actual aircraft.
Thankfully, Microsoft feels the same way and sees a great opportunity to relaunch what was a lucrative sub-brand in an entirely different gaming and simulation environment.
So far, they have released a teaser video of Microsoft Flight Simulator 2020 at the E3 Expo back in June. While it was gorgeous, it was cinematic in nature and didn't show much of what the actual flying would be like. But today, they quietly distributed a clip that shows what appears to be an uncannily real flight model and the graphics to match.
Here is the video from Microsoft showing early flight model development for spin entry and recovery in a Cessna 172 with a G1000 glass cockpit and below that is the teaser video shown at E3:
For anyone who as spun a Cessna, that video looks eerily lifelike. Every undulation, and especially the recovery, seems exact and this is an early example of the flight model. It will only get better.
Paired with the fantastic graphics that are already evident in the trailer and this clip, as well as a virtual reality user interface, Microsoft's FS reboot could mark a revelation in the accessibility of flight
