You can now fly an ornithopter over the planet Arrakis in Microsoft Flight Simulator

Dune 2 is the sequel to Denis Villeneuve’s 2021 fantasy epic and will be released soon. Ahead of its highly anticipated March 1 release, Microsoft and Xbox Game Studios have announced the arrival of the ornithopter and the desert plains of Arrakis in Microsoft Flight Simulator as part of a free add-on.


The Ornithopter plays the same role in the Dune universe as the X-Wing and TIE Fighter in Star Wars – an iconic element of futuristic design with its unique silhouette and exciting maneuvers in flight. According to Microsoft Flight Simulator director Jörg Neumann, players will be able to pilot the Royal Atreides Ornithopter through three driving lessons (takeoff, landing and free fall), and then participate in five time trials and a rescue mission to save the instructor from an encroaching sandstorm.
