The Team Behind Microsoft Flight Simulator X
It's the one we've been waiting for... and it will arrive just
in time for Christmas. It's the latest, greatest version of
Microsoft's venerable, yet surprisingly capable Flight Simulator
For the first time, Flight Simulator X will combine the features
even "real" pilots love -- including the ability to fly an even
greater variety of aircraft, from nearly any airport on the planet
-- with more than 55 structured missions, in order to attract more
goal-oriented users into the FS fold.
Jim Campbell recently sat down with Brett Schnepf, Hal Bryan and
Mike Singer of Microsoft's Flight Simulator X design team to get
the complete story of just how they transform your computer into
the aircraft of your dreams.
This feature is in addition to our daily news briefing --
available in either a quick "Touch And Go" format, or an expanded
Aero-Briefing -- where you'll hear these stories:
It's official! NBAA 2006 set yet another record...
Cessna also sets a record...
And when is a near miss not really a near miss?

Our DAILY programs consist of (at least) three separate
- ANN's Daily 'Touch & Go' Aero-Cast: A
quick look at the most recent news of the day... short, succinct
and to the point. The usual 'Touch & Go' takes but a few
minutes and is a summary, only, of the day's events... and it only
takes a few minutes of your time.
- ANN's Daily Briefing Aero-Cast: The Daily ANN
Report (ANNRep for short), is a more comprehensive look at the
day's news. We give you the whole buzz... the news and features
that occupy the forefront of aviation news as well as solid
background on the subjects that aviators and other aviation
professionals need to stay informed on.
- ANN's Daily 'ASR' Feature Aero-Cast: Our daily
'Aero-News Special Report' involves a more in-depth view of a story
or two that dominated (or will be dominating) the day's news. Far
more detailed than any single story in our standard ANN Daily
Reports, this is a solid chance to get a close look at the stories
and topics that matter. ASR features may include exclusive
interviews with Aviation's Newsmakers, ANN's Special Investigative
reports and solid analysis of the stories that will have undeniable
impact on the world of aviation and aerospace.
Check them out, let us know what you think and be sure to keep
those news-tips and program suggestions coming... ANN is ALL about
what YOU want to know about in the world of aviation and
