A new era of Flight Simulation awaits

At the same moment as the announcement Microsoft has released an announcement trailer, which is showing a careermode, and several type of aircraft, including helicopters, hot air balloons, zeppelins and experimental aircraft. There are no airliners in the trailer, but Microsoft already confirmed that these will be included in the simulator.
