Space Shuttle (PC)

This unique expansion for Flight Simulator X takes Flight Simulation into orbit. Now, armchair pilots can swap their headsets for space suits and bring the Shuttle back from space to a safe landfall at Kennedy Space Centre.

The development team at Captain Sim has harnessed the skills of a Shuttle-trained Cosmonaut to develop a flight sim first. All six Shuttle orbiters are faithfully modelled and the systems and avionics are re-created to an extremely high level of detail. It's out of this world!
