Microsoft has just started the engines to the first public flight of its next-gen Flight Simulator game, with the developer announcing that the upcoming Tech Alpha release is now recruiting.

There's not much details apart from registration now being open, something you can sign up for right here -- but the team has promised "more information" on the goals and release timeline of the Tech Alpha on September 19.

After that on September 26, we'll see the preview of the Feature Discovery Series. For now, Microsoft will select people who get into the Flight Simulator's upcoming Tech Alpha, but upcoming alphas and betas of the game will be released where the public will get their hands-on it much easier.

We should expect the second alpha to take flight in early October, once the first one has wrapped later this month.

Anthony is a long time PC enthusiast with a passion of hate for games to be built around consoles. With FPS gaming since the pre-Quake days, where you were insulted if you used a mouse to aim, he has been addicted to gaming and hardware ever since. Working in IT retail for 10 years gave him great experience with high-end, custom-built PCs. His addiction to GPU technology is unwavering, and with next-gen NVIDIA GPUs about to launch alongside 4K 144Hz HDR G-Sync gaming monitors and BFGDs (65-inch 4K 120Hz HDR G-Sync TVs) there has never been a time to be more excited about technology.
