Icon, Microsoft make dreams a virtual reality

Flying a sleek airplane built for two low over the Big Island of Hawaii may be a dream flight, but Microsoft Flight and Icon have teamed to make that scenario a little more realistic. Microsoft has launched its Microsoft Flight PC game, which offers the Icon A5 light sport aircraft flying over the Big Island of Hawaii as a free download.

Previews of the Maule M-7-260C and North American P-51 Mustang are available for free download, and the models can be purchased for $14.99 and $7.99 respectively; the Hawaiian Adventure Pack can be downloaded for $19.99.

Icon Aircraft COO Steen Strand said the company was impressed with Microsoft’s “commitment to accurately capturing the A5,” later adding that “the authenticity of the experience aligns perfectly with Icon’s goal to bring the fun and adventure of flying to those who may have considered it out of reach in the past.”
