Description from the packaging.

An exciting real-time adventure in the sky!

Put yourself in the pilot's seat! This program provides a very challenging, realistic simulation of flying under Instrument Flight Rules (IFR) in a single engine light plane. Take off, navigate over difficult terrain and fly an Instrument Landing System (ILS) approach to a landing. (Two of the four airports have ILS transmitters, along with refueling and repair facilities.) As your flight skills develop, you will also attempt landings at the non-ILS equipped airports. Then, to conserve fuel and to reach all the airports in the minimum time, you will fly a short cut through a narrow, twisting mountain pass to reach a refueling airport on the other side of a high mountain range. Plenty of thrills for pilots and non-pilots alike!

Use "Pause" to break for dinner, or to answer the phone, and later continue the flight with the touch of a key. "Edit" allows positioning of the aircraft anywhere on the course, particularly useful for instrument landing practice. Selectable wind and turbulence values enable the novice and the expert to set flying conditions suitable for their ability.

Flight tested by professional flight instructors and found to have very realistic aircraft response.
