Brighton, April 4th, 2004
Atlanta-based Flight One Software (Flight1) is a successful and critically acclaimed developer and publisher of flight simulation technology and software. Founded in 1997, Flight1 has released some of the best and most recognized expansions for Microsoft's Flight Simulator franchise, including FSClouds, Ultimate Traffic, and many more, including the recently released and officially-endorsed ATR72-500 simulation.
Commencing April 1st, Flight1 is proud to announce that it will be represented directly in Europe, with a UK office headed up by former Just Flight founder and Managing Director, Mungo Amyatt-Leir.
As Steve Halpern, Flight1's CEO, commented: "Europe has always been a key area for us. The community there is very strong. Being represented in Europe will provide a great benefit to the customers looking to get our products easily there. At the same time, having a localized point of contact for our vendors will make distribution much easier.
Also key to us being there is the ability to work with European developers on a more familiar ground. We believe Flight1 Europe Ltd will offer benefits to the European developers we work with, as well as new ones that come our way.
"The formation of a truly local base for the Flight1 brand is great news and something we have been looking at for a long time now. I've known Mungo for many years and he has the perfect background of real-life aviation interest as well as extensive experience in publishing and distribution to support Flight1 in our new venture there."
Flight1 Europe's Managing Director, Mungo Amyatt-Leir added: "Flight1 has over the last 8 years built up a reputation for excellence in quality and customer service. I'm proud and honoured to be joining the team and offering a range of products and services to an even wider audience in Europe."
Flight1 (Europe) Ltd. will be based on the UK's south coast, close to the UK's oldest licensed airfield, Shoreham.
For consumers, all end user ordering and support will still continue through www.flight1.com.
