1914-1918

When the original Flying Corps set out in Spring 1997, our aim was clear, to be the best World War I Flight Simulation ever.

Since then, we've been decorated for our success in the skies, with awards from leading industry names and accolades from devoted players. And now, the best flight simulation has just got even better, with Flying Corps Gold.

See for yourself how breathtaking new advances add to the challenge of fighting your way through the smoke and thunder of four decisive engagements: The Battle of Cambrai, TheFlying Circus, Hat-in-the-Ring and the climatic Spring Offensive of 1918.

There are now seven classic aircraft at your command. The Fokker D-VII, Fokker D.R.I/Triplane, SE5a, Sopwith Camel, Nieuport 28 Scout and Spad XIII. Extensive research, meticulous modelling and advanced programming techniques mean unprecedented historical accuracy - and bring the experience of flying these aircraft to new heights of realism and controllability.

This leaves you ready to emulate the success of real World War I aces like Rickenbacker, von Richthofen and Albert Ball.

Below you, the towns, villages, churches and copses of Northern France appear in detail never seen before, based on real aerial photographs.

Create your own battle scenarios along the Western Front using the new Mission Editor.

Best of all, you can now experience the thrills of competing with other players too - either facing them in battle or flying alongside them in the squadron.

Flying Corps Gold has blown the opposition out of the sky. Are you ready to do the same?
