    Microsoft Flight Simulator

    Happy Holidays!

    On behalf of the entire MSFS team, we wish you and your loved ones the very best this holiday season. As we bring 2019 to a close, we are incredibly grateful for everyone that has joined us on this adventure of developing the next generation of Microsoft Flight Simulator! We've taken some memorable steps with you in 2019, and we cannot wait to continue this adventure with you in 2020.

    The best is yet to come!

    SDK Update

    • SDK - Preview Version release moved back to mid-January.
    • SDK - Official V1 release expected March 2020.

    We've made great progress on the SDK in recent weeks and are confident that an initial preview version will be ready as early as mid-January. The preview version will allow interested 3rd party developers to have a first look at the SDK, provide feedback and send requests / wishes to help us prioritize the work moving forward (similar to the Tech Alpha process). This is by no means an official V1 release - we expect that to be ready March 2020.

    Feedback Snapshot

    We've posted the first draft of the Feedback Snapshot in the Insider Area! This document is still being worked on so expect another update in a few weeks that contains additional information regarding the progress being made on each entry.

      Waiting patiently until March 2020. I am not a Geek so I have difficulty in making successful changes. I have been forced to upgrade to Win 10 and struggling with making my Win 7 FSX fly successfully under the new regime. I have enjoyed FSX for such a lone time that I do not want to go to another simulator program, So, take another shot of scotch and try to relax until March

      Although I understand your comment about using something different from FSX ( given all the time and investment you have no doubt made) , the reality is that this WILL be a new FS.
      The thing (for me) that it will be dependant on is whether it's a traditional one-off cost 👍 , or (more likely) some sort of subscription model () like Office where you continue to pay for features/develoment that either
      (a) you don't need,
      or
      (b) you paid for in a previous version over 10 years ago....
