“…an awe-inspiring flight over realistic scenery…”
Lies! All lies! See for yourself below.

Thanks to this software, and trying to learn how to fly on an Atari 1200XL computer connected to a black and white TV set in the mid-1980s, I decided that I did not want to become a pilot when I grew up.

I thought the vector art used in the ad and packaging was pretty nifty tho.

Ooh! subLOGIC had a Telex number! Fancy.
