Two games based on Microsoft's Flight Simulator tech are coming in 2016

Flight sim gamers will be able to buy two new PC titles based on Microsoft's Flight Simulator technology in 2016. They will be released by UK-based Dovetail Games, with the first, Dovetail Games Flight School, due in April.

Dovetail, which also has the rights to distribute Microsoft Flight Simulator X on Steam, says that Flight School is designed to give first-time sim pilots the experience on how to fly a small aircraft:

"It will offer newcomers to flight simming an engaging and accessible introduction to aviation, whilst also being highly realistic and authentic. Players will learn to fly in iconic training aircraft, undertaking a series of tutorials and training missions, which will provide the perfect introduction to the genre. There will also be a Free Flight mode, for those players who want to head off and explore the entire world."

The second game will be Dovetail Games Flight Simulator, which is due in the second half of 2016. Details about that game have yet to be revealed.
