Banbury, England– June 11th 2007– First Class Simulations and Abacus are happy to introduce the first title in a new Mission Series of games: Black Hawk features full-length flight adventures to keep you challenged. These heart-pounding scenarios take full advantage of FSX's mission building capabilities. You'll be flying the "hawk" set of helicopters - Black Hawk, Sea Hawk, Pave Hawk and Jay Hawk.

Several VH-60N Black Hawks, known as Marine One, are even used to transport the President of the United States. During air assault operations, the Black Hawk can move a squad of 11 combat troops with equipment or carry 2,600 lb of cargo or sling a 9,000 lb load of cargo. The Black Hawk is also equipped with advanced avionics and electronics for increased survivability and capability.
