|About Micro Flight|
recommended that your read and understand this manual
before using the program itself, as many options there
are unique to Micro Flight such as the mouse picking on
instruments and control surfaces, the use of map, gps and
Micro-Flight has been written by
Ilan Papini , first version released
in December 2000.
Ilan is an
aeronautical engineer with an extensive experience both
in aeronautics and in software development.
Being a pilot of
hang gliders and light airplanes for more than 15 years
Ilan realized the limitations of existing simulations and
decided to create a special flight simulation tailored
for soaring and light aviation, the result of this effort
is called Micro-Flight.
Ilan has written
to date two more simulations:
Sim which is an immersive and
realistic Hang Gliding flight simulator (
released 1998 and published by Wilco publishing
in early 1999)
Sailor which is an immersive and
realistic sailing simulation ( released 1999 )
the latest addition to this line of simulations and
continues the tradition of an immersive and realistic
simulaton in a non violent virtual environment.
All of the three
simulations featured open data formats for creating
scenery, boats and planes, and this allowed many users to
create scenery and vehicles for them.
users helped these programs over the years, without their
support with add-ons, comments and ideas, these programs
would have not been as valuable as they are today.
