Done in partnership with CoolSky, "Ultimate Airliners - The Super 80" brings back the classic modes of flying in the era where glass was just starting to appear. This rendition is based on the original Super 80, circa 1979. So with the combination of classic analog and early electronic navigation, you have a product that requires a lot of attention, but also rewards proper cockpit management. And if this does seem complicated, the new Integrated Cockpit Training System will help guide you through many of the steps required in order to have a successful and accurate flight.

This product is only compatible with FS2004 and FSX, so of course, these simulators are required. For your computer, we recommend you have a 1.6 GHz machine with a 128 Mb memory video card for FS2004, and a 3 GHz machine with a 256 Mb memory video card for FSX. System memory should be a minimum of 512 for FS2004 and 1 Gigabyte for FSX. Low-end on-board sound chips are NOT recommended. A plugin sound card, such as a Soundblaster Audigy, is recommended. In some cases, sounds will not work correctly unless you have an adequate sound card.
Windows XP and Vista (see Vista notes below) are the official operating systems that will work with the Super 80. It may work with other Microsoft operating systems, however this is not supported by Flight One.
For Vista users: This sofware should run without problems on Vista, however, you must have an understanding of how to configure Vista should you have problems. Please visit http://www.flight1.com/view.asp?page=vista for a better understanding of Vista, and how you may need full Administrator access.
