Microsoft Flight Simulator (opens in new tab)'s Insider Program, which started taking sign-ups last month, will start giving members a behind-the-scenes look at the game's development in August. Early in the month, Insiders will get a preview of the development roadmap, clips captured from the build and details on the first preview build.

Insiders will be able to register for the first preview build in early August, while public participation sign-ups will start in late August, along with a more details about the build itself.
