“Basic” Carbon Cub for Flight Alaska

Microsoft have announced a small amount of further detail regarding what will be included as part of their Alaska expansion for Flight.

In a news article posted yesterday, they announced: “Prepare for takeoff! While exploring over 600,000 square miles of new scenery, 565 airports and 137 seaplane bases in the Land of the Midnight Sun, you’ll encounter new Gold Rushes, Challenge Courses and Landing Challenges.

So, what you’re actually saying, Philip, is that you are complaining about something you know next to nothing about, without qualification or reference to be able to do so.
