Have you ever dreamed about flying like a bird, outside of a metal can with a windshield? Now you have a chance to do it in Microsoft Flight Simulator - take on your suit and prepare for a mind blowing experience!
You can hover like a helicopter, or escort an airliner like a jet fighter. Participate in competitions or fly above cities in VR mount. Your only enemies - small fuel tank and extremely sensitive controls.
It will be free-to-pay add-on, it means you will be able to try it with most functionality without payment. Full list of premium features and detailed roadmap in the post below.
We are not trying to build a copy of any real aircraft. However, we are trying to make it fly at least somehow realistically for given specifications, in the existing limits of MSFS and our knowledge. Please consider JW1 as an evaluation of simulator capabilities rather than an attempt to create a flight trainer. Any experience you will get with this add-on can’t be used in real life, both for flying or aircraft building.
Public release! Get latest version, try it out and leave feedback - in comments below or in our Discord. It’s still not finished - you can expect further improvements of: sounds, display symbology, parachute dynamics, aboard quality, body and parachute animation. Some technical limitations exists that we can’t affect anyhow, but they will be solved by MSFS developers with time.
