It weighs a lot. That’s the first impression you will get when you lay your hands on Microsoft Flight Simulator 2000 Professional Edition. Open up the box and you can marvel at the thoroughness of the Pilot’s Handbook, a tome of Barbara Taylor Bradford proportions, but certainly more educational and informative. Plough through this veritable bible of winged things and you will be ready for any kind of aviation adventure. Maybe adventure is the wrong word, after all, this is a title that takes itself very seriously. Simulation is as simulation does, you see, and this is as definitive as it gets.

The Professional Edition has all the features of predecessor Flight Simulator 2000 plus two additional aircraft, the Mooney Bravo and the King Air 350. There are also six high-resolution cities, Boston, Seattle, Washington DC, Berlin, Tokyo and Rome, to add to the thousands of airports that appeared in FS2000, and of course this means more scenery and more challenging flights to make. Landscapes and famous landmarks come alive in 16-bit colour and accurately modelled hills and valleys are based on true elevation data, a triumph of the art of air cartography, without which Flight Simulator 2000 Pro would simply flounder. Seasonal weather changes and time of day selection add another layer of visual realism.

For over 17 years, Microsoft Flight Simulator has defined quality and realism. The 2000 Professional Edition is the most technologically advanced, detailed and customisable flight sim available right now.
