Description from the packaging.

"A benchmark of the '90's for flight simulators." - Shay Addams, Simulation! Magazine

On December 7, 1941, with Pearl Harbor in smoking ruin, aerial history would be born as American pilots launched into battle against the Japanese Empire. Spanning the entire Pacific, the scope of the war would by monumental with mighty "floating airfields" carrying the battle out across the seas. In the air, on the ground and far out at sea, two warring nations would come face-to-face and a new era of pilots would forever mark their place in history. From the Coral Sea to the battle at Midway, young defenders of nations would take to the skies on wings of steel. They would fight with honor and fly with the spirit of legends and be remembered as "Aces of the Pacific."
