      Manufacturer's Description

      All Is Not Quiet On The Western Front In 1917...
      High above the trenches and scarred No Man's Land, the sound of piston engines can be heard, the chatter of machine guns fills the air and the bark of flak bursts echo across the countryside. During the First World War a new breed of warrior emerged, reminiscent of the knights of old, inspired by chivalry and pushed to their limits by modern technology, they fought a new kind of war...an air war

      Welcome to Rise of Flight: The First Great Air War

      In flying machines invented just a few years before, young, brave and daring fighter pilots took to the skies to fight for their country's cause. In airplanes made of mostly wood and canvas, they climbed, dived, spiraled and sacrificed their lives. The average pilot lasted less than 20missions and if you were hit there was no parachute to rescue you. Death could come at any time, from any direction. Only the best survived. Rise of Flight puts you in the cockpit, in the sky and in the fight.

      Do you have what it takes to survive? Can you make a difference? Can you become an ace fighter pilot?
