Fly from frozen pole to frozen pole in a challenging odyssey that tests your flying skills to the limits. Experience the planet as you have never seen it before as you head south from the most desolate wilderness on Earth. Fly over vast unpopulated tracts of Canada. Relive the gold rush (not that you lived it the first time around) in the Yokon and fly from cosmopolitan Vancouver into the continental United States...

Pole to Pole is the sequel to the best selling Around the World in 80 Flights. I can't help wondering if there's a Michael Palin thing going on here! What will be next? Full Circle?

Fly in your Aero Commander 680 as you head over vast unpopulated tracts of Canada. Fly over Vancouver and on into the United States. The route continues with a very special traversal of the USA showcasing some of the finest scenery and trickiest airport approaches in the world.

Head out across the tropical paradise of the Caribbean and make landfall for a once in a lifetime opportunity (which you can revisit as many times as you wish) to explore South America. The majesty of the Andes, the awe-inspiring Amazon basin and the carnival city of Rio De Janeiro all pass below the wings of your aircraft as you track ever southwards.

Perhaps, the greatest adventure is yet to come, as you depart the coast of Chile and aim to cross the continent of Antarctica, following in the footsteps of the great explorers as you endeavour to conquer the ravages of Mother Nature and to reach the South Pole.

Each of the flight legs can be flown individually or consecutively and are comprehensively detailed, with a flight plan, pilot’s notes, full briefing and a guide to many of the wonders of the world that unfold before your eyes in this adventure of a lifetime.

This game comes complete with two variants of the Aero Commander 680 is made up of two variants and a number paint schemes: G-POLE, Pole-to-Pole 'signature' scheme - N433CR, American - N289GR, American  Aero Commander 680 with Skis Paint schemes - G-POLE, Pole-to-Pole 'signature' scheme - VH-UJA, Australian.

This is a great way to see areas of the Flight Sim world you may not have have seem before, as well as giving you the chance to visit airports (and runway approaches) that you're very unlikely to have witnessed previously.

Yet another fantastic package that will challenge your flying skills as well as providing hours of great fun and visually stunning scenery.
