I've  just had a quick  look at what is included in the new Microsoft flight Sim. As I mainly (sim) fly in the UK it looks as though there will be no  take off and landing available in the sim outside the London area. The advertising blurb points out that all airstrips will be visible, but can't be used for take off or landing. It seems fairly obvious what the next step will be to  "open"  each additional airport. I'll stick with P3D and X Plane where there is far more value for money
