GTA Online San Andreas Flight School Update now available

Get ready to take the highway to the danger zone because Grand Theft Auto Online's Flight School Update is open for business. Head on down to the new flight school, grab the stick of the fast and nimble Western Besra and complete your training in 10 new solo missions that will show your air superiority. This includes combat maneuvering, low-flying challenges, formation flying and more.

In addition to the new missions, a number of new vehicles — both air and land — will be available, including the Swift helicopter and 16-seater Buckingham Mil-Jet. There's also a new Flight Suit, though I personally prefer the shirtless jeans look. There's also a collection of new Chutes and Parachute Bags, as well as the Reserve Parachute. And lastly, for those of you who like to keep your feet on the ground, there's the Invetero Coquette Classic, available in either hard-top or topless roadster variants.

The Flight School Update also adds various new missions including the three all-new VS Mission modes: Acquire Targets, a kill-the-carrier style mode where opponents fight in P996 Lazers to control one flag which racks up points the longer you hold it; G-Rating, where you'll compete against other cadets as you fly to pick up 15 flags; and Air Force Zero, where the defending team must protect an aircraft against an attacking team as it flies to the safe LZ.

The San Andreas Flight School Update for GTA Online is now available via the automatic update 1.16 for both PS3 and Xbox 360.
