AOPA Commander 112 now available

Through a partnership between Microsoft, AOPA (Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association) and Flight1 Software, AOPA members can now download a simulated version of the Commander 112 sweepstakes aircraft. Someone already grabbed it and has posted screenshots here. Note: you must be an AOPA member to download the aircraft.


For those who don’t know AOPA is an industry group that represents the interests of (what a shock) aircraft owners and pilots. They have amassed a huge database of resources on flight training, pilot proficiency and aircraft ownership from purchase to maintenance to sale. They also are very active politically and have been about the strongest counterbalance to post-9/11 hysteria over aviation safety. If you live in the US and enjoy your freedoms around flying and aviation in general you should seriously consider joining. The annual fee is nominal and supports their efforts to ensure continued access to aviation for the general public. Plus, you get a bunch of cool benefits including a monthly magazine, AOPA Pilot. Check it out.

    Just wanted to drop by and say Nice Blog. It’s always interesting to gain a little insight into what the dev’s are doing. Thanks for doing this.

    As for the AOPA Commander. It’s a very nice aircraft, and thanks for linking to my Screenshots.

    And I highly recommend others to Join AOPA if they are a Pilot or dream of being one. Well worth it.

    Best Regards,

    What a fantastic job Flight1 has done. I have to say this is nothing like thier other products, but considering the price I’m not complaining 🙂

    One thing that I noticed was how great they’ve implemented the ‘default’ avionics into the Chelton Line. That way everything works from the Flight Planner…etc.

    Great blog! I’m looking forward to seeing what MS plans are for helicotpers!
