|Quoting Jasond (Reply 1):|
This question has been asked in flight sim forums since about FS98. FSFW5 and below we could expect a limited number of planes so you would expect a singular boeing and little else, but nowadays I don't have an answer. For what its worth I now run FS2004 and a fleet of IFDG / PSS Airbuses, I am happy with that and it makes its own statement I think.

What's Between Microsoft And Boeing?
|Quoting Nighthawk (Reply 5):|
the first boeing aircraft did not appear in flight sim until either FS95 or FS98. Version 5 and previous only featured a cessna and a learjet IIRC.
|Quoting AirPacific747 (Reply 3):|
Boeing and Microsoft have a contract in which Boeing provides technical expertise and Microsoft includes their models in their flightsim product.
Boeing gets exposure, Microsoft gets technical data they'd not otherwise have access to (at least not at a price making it worthwhile to include).
Remember the navigation data in MSFS is provided by Jepessen, a Boeing subsidiary, for example.

yes, there is something. But no evil conspiracies for world domination (at least not there, I'd have long since crushed them).
