Because the original FS floppy was a bootable and copy-protected disk, this game has been wrapped into a package for download.

Package includes:

* DOSBox for Windows, v 0.72
* PC Booter disk game version, v 1.05 loaded
* MSFS 1 Boot image v 1.00 (.IMG)
* MSFS 1 Boot image v 1.05 (.IMG)
* Compilation v 1.0.3.2

Sometime during 1981/82, Microsoft obtained the license to port the simulator to IBM PCs (and compatibles). This version was released in November 1982 as Microsoft Flight Simulator 1.00, and featured an improved graphics engine, variable weather and time of day, and a new coordinate system (used by all subsequent versions up to version 5).

Anecdotal evidence from the period suggests that Microsoft Flight Simulator 1.0 was used as a benchmark program. It was said that if one's computer could run MSFS 1.0 and Lotus 1-2-3, it was 100% IBM PC-compatible, and if it couldn't, it wasn't.

This version of the game is very rare. There is a higher value placed on the 5.25" disks, as opposed to the 3.5" disks.
There were dogfighting and crop-dusting games included.
