Microsoft Flight Simulator has been released and it comes with plenty of airports and airplanes to choose from. The game will feature every single airport from around the world. Though, some will be more popular than others. The same will be said for the aircraft. Read on to find out the Microsoft Flight Simulator 2020 Airports and Airplanes list.
According to Microsoft, players will be able to land and take off from the 37,000 procedurally generated airports located all over the world. However, 40 of these airports in Microsoft Flight Simulator 2020 include “hand-crafted” features and elements.
The handcrafted airports will offer more detail and many other features. So, for example, all players will be able to fly into London’s Heathrow airport, but only players who have Microsoft Flight Simulator 2020 Premium Deluxe version will be able to see and experience these handcrafted elements.
Microsoft has not said what the actual differences are between the hand-crafted and non-handcrafted versions of airports.
