Microsoft Flight Simulator Canada Update Adds New Landmarks (No, They Aren’t Just Trees)

Nathan Birch
Microsoft Flight Simulator

The stereotype of Canada is that it’s just a vast expanse of trees and snow. And more snow. And perhaps even a little more snow. But that’s not true! People actually live here and we have our own landmarks and everything! Don’t believe me? Check out Microsoft Flight Simulator World Update 11, which focuses on new points of interest from coast to coast. A dozen cities and five airports have had new hand-crafted details added, and you can buzz over landmarks from the Peggy’s Cove Lighthouse in the East to the BC Legislature in the West. Check out a trailer for the Microsoft Flight Simulator Canada update, below.
