> Published on 02.21.2020 by SimFlight: Hopping Round the World Adventure becomes Ready Captain

 

After 17 years, Ready Captain is the sequel to the original Hopping Round the World Adventure created by David Dossiere that started on August 3, 2003 for Microsoft Flight Simulator 2014: A Century of Flight.

The starting point of Ready Captain has been confirmed!

EXCLUSIVELY for Microsoft Flight Simulator, Ready Captain will surpass more than 2,000 takeoffs and landings. We will visit the world's most dangerous airports, land on lakes & seas, countless bush flying while discovering unknown strips of grass, dirt and gravel which will test your IFR and VFR skills in real-world weather conditions while piloting big iron, props & jet props, classics, seaplanes, military tech and possibly some helicopters to uncover as many locations to enrich your flying experience.

We WILL visit the continents of Africa, Asia, Antartica, Australia/Oceania, Europe, North America and South America. The Caribbean will be included along with unheard of places that you may have to search for online. Local seasons for the date and time flown allowing pilots the solo experience, share with family, friends or meet new pilots along the way.

For the first time ever we get to experience the world as it is upclose and personal right from the start.

Many developers, programmers and repaint artists of existing models, panels, sounds, scenery are busy testing all their products for the new sim.

Some of my favorite models include aircraft from MelJet, SGA, Project OpenSky, KittyHawk, iFDG Airbus to name a few. I hope all of them make a return for the new simulator.

Microsoft Flight Simulator 2020 is available now.

You can get your copy by using the links above to purchase the Premium Deluxe Edition, a JBL headset, Extreme 3D Pro Joystick and the HP Pavilion Gaming Desktop from Amazon.

Personally I am very excited for the new tech included right out of the box. I am sure it will take everyone some time to wrap their hands around all the goodies like marketplace, VATSIM, AI traffic, ATC, real-world weather, flight dynamics and possibly updating your hardware and internet connection speed.

The software is only available by download.

Ready Captain is still scheduled to launch Winter 2020 giving pilots enough time to get ready for the big adventure.

The V22 Osprey is critical because of its range and ability to land anywhere. You will be very pleased to see where we land this aircraft! I wonder if there are air carriers or in-flight refueling?

In addition to the models from the $119.99 Premium Deluxe Edition we want to add these FREEWARE models listed below to make this the World's Biggest Flightsim Adventure reaching all continents with more than 2,000 takeoffs and landings as enjoyable as possible.
