Microsoft Flight Simulator’s Standard/Deluxe/Premium Edition Airports And Planes Explained

There’s been a lot of confusion over Microsoft Flight Simulator over the last few weeks. Firstly, the game is only launching on Windows 10 on August 18th with an Xbox release date still TBC. The other form of confusion comes from the fat that the game has three different versions, Standard, Deluxe and Premium.

I want to make something clear. The standard version of the game (the one that is free for Xbox Game Pass subscribers) will include over 40,000 airports including every single one in the below lists. It just won’t contain the five extra hard-crafted versions of the airports listed in the Deluxe/Premium edition. Those airports are still in the game, but they’re just not highly detailed. The Deluxe/Premium editions also come with five extra aircrafts each.

Honestly though, once you start playing, you’ll realise that all of the airports in the game look great. 99% of people won’t be able to tell the difference between those airports that are pulling from satellite data and those that are hand crafted.

PHYSICAL EDITION

Unfortunately, there is no physical edition available in Australia, which is a shame given the epic 10 disc physical version, but it looks like it’s available on OzGameShop which you can find right HERE for $99. 

STANDARD EDITION

This is the version available on Xbox Game Pass (for PC). There’s 30 hand-crafted airports (40,000+ regular satellite served airports) in the standard edition and 20 planes.
