MS: Flight vs Aerofly FS

February marks the month that two Flight sims go head-to-head in the United States.   Here's the comparison.

MS: Flight

***NOTE: MS: Flight has ceased production of new content

Probably has the most branding recognition, this game is the newest Flight Simulator, since the Microsoft shakeup of their flight sim developers.  Probably no surprise, MS Flight embraces the free-to-play model.  For free, you get one location to fly and 2 planes.  Additional planes and locations will be available over time.

Challenges: Yes
Multiplayer: Yes
Location: Hawaii
Planes: Icon A5 & Boeing-Stearman Model 75
Realism: moderate

Aerofly FS

Although its been out in Europe for a while, this game is now available in the states.  This is the first time the Aerofly (best known for its RC racer sims) dives into true realism.  Unfortunately, their marketing in North America has been non-existent.
Challenges: Yes
Location: Switzerland
Planes: Cessna 172 Skyhawk, F/A-18 Hornet, Jodel Robin DR 400 / 140 B Major, Pitts S-2B, Discus bM, Swift S1, F1 Camel, Extra 300 LX
Realism: moderate
