Incidentally, the tweet contains further interesting details and statistics about the new Microsoft Flight Simulator (buy now € 69.99 ) emerged. Accordingly, the players have flown more than 1.181 billion miles since the release last month. The longest flight without interruption and stopover lasted over ten hours and covered a distance of 7,634 kilometers. The currently most popular aircraft is the Taher DBM 930 followed by the Cesna Citation CJ4. The most popular airport is the John F. Kennedy International Airport, the most popular destination is the home of each player. The main reason for this is, above all, pure curiosity about what the homeland might look like in the game.
