'Flight Sim World' Leaves Early Access, Enters Next Phase of Development - Trailer

by Rainier on Jan. 18, 2018 @ 3:31 p.m. PST

Flight Sim World is a flight simulation platform that includes ultra-detailed GA aircraft, comprehensive flight planner, and an advanced flight model.

If you are new to flight simulation, learn the basics while working towards obtaining your in-sim qualifications in our true-to-life flight lessons. For those who demand more of a challenge, a series of complex missions will push your skills to their limit.

Based on benchmark technology, FSW includes the whole world as well as several single and twin propeller aircraft to get you started. The aircraft in Flight Sim World have been created using the latest modelling and rendering technologies resulting in stunning realism and detail. Every switch and gauge in the cockpits are clickable, while a range of animations really brings the experience to life.

Not only do the core aircraft look amazing, but they also react to their environment realistically. A combination of atmospheric effects and advanced mechanics result in a remarkably unique flight experience.

If creating content is your passion, we have included the Pro Mission Editor, which is a comprehensive tool that allows you to create your own missions.


This phase will see the sim released from Steam’s Early Access program as the development team moves towards making bigger, less frequent updates.

“We have some really exciting updates planned”, said Stephen Hood, Executive Producer. “We are working on weather and world improvements, IFR, and the introduction of sleeker, faster aircraft from business jets right through to the all-important airliners all delivered with the key features that support them. The feedback our community has given during Early Access has absolutely steered the program for what we bring to Flight Sim World next.”

The Phase 2 content schedule includes:

  • A variety of aircraft including airliners
  • IFR and ATC upgrades
  • World improvements
  • Dynamic and live weather

“We are confident that our players will feel the benefit of us focusing on their feature requests now Flight Sim World’s foundations are in place”, said Rob O’Farrell, SVP of Development. “Larger updates will really allow us to deliver high priority community features and aircraft this year.”
Since initial launch in May 2017, 15 updates have been released for Flight Sim World which have included the addition of Steam workshop functionality, passenger models, the ability to start all aircraft from a cold and dark state, advanced weather featuring trueSKY technology, lighting and rendering updates, as well as countless fixes and performance improvements.

The first major Phase 2 update is will release on Thursday 1st February and will feature Dynamic Weather.


Key Features:

  • Free Flight: The whole world is yours to explore in Free Flight mode!
  • Multiplayer (Alpha): Fly with your friends on Steam! Please note Multiplayer is still in its Alpha stage, so you may experience bugs.
  • Lessons & Missions: Learn the basics with our LAPL and PPL based lessons, and then test your skills with a series of missions.

Flight Sim World is available to purchase on Steam or the Dovetail Store for £29.99/€34.99/$39.99
