Conquer the lonely Pacific, leapfrogging across a series of islands as you make your way to the United States. Make landfall and catch your breath before flying over some of the most stunning scenery in the world as you head across the vast expanse of the USA to the Caribbean before venturing a trans-Atlantic crossing back to Farnborough.
Each of the 80 flight legs can be flown as individual or consecutive missions and are comprehensively detailed, with a flight plan, pilots notes, full briefing and a guide to many of the wonders of the world that pass beneath your wings.

Time to fire this baby up, and boy oh boy what a sound. Taxi to the runway then open her up. It takes a short time to get to full take off power, but you know when you get because it sounds superb. Up in the air the aircraft handles very well. - Fly Away Simulation
Rated 4.0/5.0 based on 1 customer reviews
This is a simple, straight-forward product.
You can, of course, look around the planet, do a number of google searches looking for the coolest things in the world to see, find appropriate airports along the way around the world and then not have to order this program.
I have often read other reviews from people who say just that, "why pay for this when you can do it all yourself?" Well, my answer is that doing it all yourself would take a lot of time. Here you can decide to spend a little bit of money and have all of this done for you.
A simple choice, I beleive: take a lot of time and put in a lot of effort, or decide that you would prefer to concentrate on flying. Each to thier own.
As far as i am concerned, they have truly sought out good routes, added a bit of detail to help you find and see the best things and of course all of the flight plans are fully prepared for your use.
