Fly Away Simulation stands proud as the largest and most complete flight simulator website on the Internet, providing news, freeware downloads, and discussion to millions of flight simulator enthusiasts. The development team at Captain Sim and the Publishers of JustFlight have done it again and this time they harnessed the skills of a Shuttle-trained Cosmonaut to develop a flight sim first. All six Shuttle orbiters are faithfully modelled and the systems and avionics are re-created to an extremely high level of detail.
Space Shuttle Flight Simulator X
It's 12 (twelve, Karl) years since FSX release! Great sim, the last and the best one from Microsoft. Space Shuttle was our first FSX product...
We are sure that FSX will continue to fly for many more years, as FS2004 does, but it's time to retire FSX officially.
To add even more drama, we'd call it the end of 32-bit era, which means P3D 2-3 are retired as well.
Fsx Space Shuttle
Technically that means no more updates, no new developments for 32-bit sims. The upcoming 757 CAPTAIN III Freighter and -300 expansions for FSX/P3D3 will be released and updated as usual. But they are going to be the last ones for 32-bit sims.
