Hi j3tman, if the installer says it needs to install DirectX, you'll need an internetconnection during the install since it will need to download DirectX.
You don't need an internet connection for the sim, although it will download the news text on the startup screen and the images for the billboards at startup. But, if no connection is found, it'll still start. If you're having problems installing or running the sim, could you be more specific? Details about the error (message) and your system will come in handy.
You can't fly in multiplayer yet, as this would require a costly server if done properly. But it's on my wishlist!
