Redmond-based software giant Microsoft announced earlier this month that its flight simulator, the appropriately named Microsoft Flight, will be available to download worldwide for free starting next week – on Wednesday, the 29th of February 2012, to be more precise. The flight simulator will “land” at microsoftflight.com and will be available via the Games for Windows LIVE service.

On the same date, Microsoft will release the Hawaiian Adventure Pack, which includes a new plane (the Vans RV-6A, a two-seat, single-engine, low-wing homebuilt airplane made famous for its speed and maneuverability), 20 new missions, new challenges, stunning recreations of landmark features, and the remaining Hawaiian Islands, hundreds of miles to explore.

Unlike Microsoft Flight which, the Hawaiian Adventure Pack is not free. It will be sold via Games for Windows–LIVE starting with February 29. It will set you back a total of 1600 Microsoft Points.

The nice thing about Microsoft Flight is that, as the simulator’s developers put it, you can get started with the free-to-play title right away. You are sure to have fun regardless if you are a flying novice or an experienced fan of the genre. “Microsoft Flight lets players jump into the fun, freedom, and adventure of flight with no special hardware or past experience. If you have a mouse and a PC, you can fly!” said the Microsoft Flight team.

We have to thank the Beta testing community for the fact that Microsoft Flight will be released next week. And Microsoft did just that: it was quite pleased with the success of the Beta test and it thanked all the Beta testers out there to got Microsoft Flight and lent a helping hand in working out the kinks getting the flight simulator out to the public.

“There was an overwhelming demand for access to the Microsoft Flight beta and the number of requests was far more than what we initially planned for. We received amazing feedback from the beta participants and it’s great to see this level of excitement from fans as we move toward the release of Microsoft Flight,” explained Executive Producer Joshua Howard.
