On small farewells

Hello people I know and people I do not know, people with whom I have interacted at some point and people who happen to be here for a random reason involving boredom.  I have gathered you here so I can say one thing to your face before (some of…? Anyone hopefully?) you figure it...

Early Years of Flight Screenshots



This compelling collection of early aircraft features 5 machines that smashed records and finally allowed mankind to break the bonds holding us to terra firma.

Join with the Wright Brothers and take to the air for a tour of Ohio in the iconic Model B aircraft or recreate the achievement of Louis Blériot in a death defying crossing of the English Channel in the Blériot XI monoplane. Strap yourself into the Santos-Dumont 14-bis and share the elation of performing the first unaided take-off of a heavier than air aircraft. The Goliescu Avioplan with its idiosyncratic design and equally unpredictable performance may be a challenge to fly but was the first aircraft to utilise a tubular design that paved the way for aircraft of today. The Handley Page E is widely acclaimed as the first passenger aircraft, although comfort was not an option with the passenger seated precariously behind the pilot in a small bucket seat open to the outside air!

Each has been lovingly crafted, resulting in stunning recreations of these historic aircraft complete with authentic flight characteristics that capture the spirit and adventure of a bygone era. Also included are 5 missions for Microsoft Flight Simulator X that will push your flying skills to the limit with an opportunity to experience the finest hour of these pioneering aircraft, putting you in the pilot's seat to attempt the record breaking challenges that flew these daring aviators into the history books.
