"train, fly, fight and interact together."
The game is developed by Mad Catz internal dev ThunderHawk Studios, and is based off Microsoft's Flight Simulator X. It's an "important destination" for flight sims.
Gamers must "qualify to earn their wings" before they're able to take to the skies with other players. It's their "proprietary, multiplayer engine" that sets it a part from other flight sim experiences.
"We believe that Combat Pilot will prove to be an important destination for the flight simulation community to gather, interact, and share experiences,” said Darren Richardson, the President and Chief Executive Officer of Mad Catz Interactive, Inc. “Mad Catz’ Saitek™ brand and flight simulation is an important part of our company’s culture and Combat Pilot will allow the flight simulation community to come together and interact as never before.”
