With its beta recently wrapped, Microsoft has announced that Microsoft Flight, the latest in their long-running family of flight sims, will launch for download on February 29. The first DLC pack, the Hawaiian Adventure Pack, will be released alongside the base game for 1600 MS Points.

It’s been over five years since Microsoft released Flight Simulator X, and today, the company has announced their return to the genre with the upcoming Microsoft Flight. Flight is scheduled to launch for the PC this spring as a free download with the Icon A5 as the first plane available and the Big Island of Hawaii as the initial flight zone. Virtual pilots can extend their tour after completing the free missions by downloading additional DLC that will add new crafts, regions, and customization options. Microsoft plans for the new content to include “daily aerocache challenges and updates that make every flight unique and fun.” As a bonus, players who use Games for Windows Live to sign in will receive free extras, including the Boeing Stearman plane, additional missions, Achievements, and an Online Pilot Profile.
