Microsoft Flight Simulator 40th Anniversary Edition will be a free update for anyone playing the game, either through an owned copy or Xbox Game Pass, and celebrating 40 years since the first Microsoft Flight Simulator game launched in November 1982.

The update will add in classic airports and iconic planes from titles such as Microsoft Flight Simulator X and Microsoft Flight Simulator 2004: A Century of Flight, and there will be new additions as well, including highly anticipated vehicles such as helicopters, gliders, and a proper Airbus A310 commercial airliner as well.
