Does anyone know if and when First Eagles will be available in Canada? Looks like one that I would like to try.

The company that made it - Third Wire - have an online store for a download. Try Google...not sure it is de rigeur for me to post a link on a Ubi forum...

We've all been watching GT Game Developers work on their masterpiece work WWI airsim (their site is at: http://www.gennadich.com/id/70/ ), but some of the info I've read suggests G2 (First Eagles) and GT may be related companies...

The work certailny looks similar, but the quality of the art on First Eagles just doesn't seem come up to the level I've seen on the GT website.

Anybody know what's the deal here?

GT is a Russian company, on friendly terms with Maddox Games. I don't think they are related to G2 though.

First Eagles is made by Thirdwire, they have nothing to do with GT. Also there is a First Eagles forum over on simhq.com. I'm sure you'll find more info on said sim over there.

Don't bother, flakzero1959. I bought it. Comes with only four flyables. Has bugs. You are expected to fix them yourself by modifying files. A shoddy comparison with the lightning fast patch Maddox produced for IL-2 46. This one is for the modders. Wait for KNIGHTS OF THE SKY:

which will blow FE out of the sky. If you want a WWI flight sim right now, download OVER FLANDERS FIELDS, which is free (must have CFS3), and a 1000 times more immersive than FE:

Good luck.

Thanks everyone for your replies. Guess I'll just keep happily playing on this game for now.
