About Micro-flight

Micro Flight is a state of the art flight simulator specializing in simulating
ultralight flying vehicles and micro meterological conditions.

Unlike other flight simulators, Micro Flight simulates the intricate flow of
air over the ground and the effects of thermals created by the sun, making it
ideal for simulating gliders of all types.

Micro Flight also simulates types of vehicles not simulated by other general
aviation programs, such as: Hanggliders, Paragliders, Gyroplanes, Helicopters,
Trikes, Balloons and more.

Flight instrumentation and navigational aids were made to resemble real ones,
this includes the hand held GPS, standard flight instruments, head up display
and more.

The whole enviroment which the user interacts with is three dimentional, even
operating the instruments in the cockpit is made by manipulating them with the
mouse and not just by pressing keys.

The terrain model used is detailed and optimized, giving the terrain a
photorealistic look while still maintaing a high frame rate during run.

The program supports a wide variety of scenery formats, and can import aerial
photography and USGS digital elevation data directly.

The program includes flight recording and anaylis, giving the user the ability
to study the flight in detail and export it's path in digital form for any
purpose.

The program has netplay mode which enables users to fly and communicate with
each other.

All this and more make the program a unique and valueable tool for flight
simulation.
