    I've been waiting for Microsoft to release new expansion packs for flight Simulator for several years now.  My father and I are huge flightsim fans and we thoroughly enjoyed the Hawaii expansion pack of decade go for FS95...has it really been that long?

    I was expecting Microsoft to bring back expansion packs for FS2004: A century of flight, but that never happened.  Abacus has been producing compilation expansion packs for Flightsim for years now, but they were never as good as the genuine Microsoft expansion packs and I've had to put a lot of work into streamlining the features to match the simulators.

    This is great news and I'm sure my father and I will really enjoy the new features.  Awesome.  Thanks a lot for the updates, Tina.  Wink

    Very cool, but I don't think I could tolerate the gap between the moniters.

    I'd much rather have a large widescreen moniter.  It would also be pretty wicked to hook up a yoke and rudder pedals with that setup.
