Pilotwings, the flight simulator that launched alongside the Super Nintendo way back when, looks set to be released on the North American Wii U Virtual Console as it's been listed on the official Nintendo website.

The game sees you take to the skies using either a light plane, hang glider or a rocket belt. You can also do a bit of skydiving should you prefer. It's been listed for $7.99.

Of course, if you already own Pilotwings on the Wii Virtual Console you can upgrade to the Wii U version, which allows for GamePad-only play, for $1.50.
