    Default MSFS Manual

    Microsoft Flight Simulator 2020 is missing the usual manual you'd expect from software like this. However, publisher SoFly has published an excellent substitute. Their SoFly - A Guide to Flight Simulator is a 120 page ebook in PDF format that covers what you need to know to use MSFS.

    There is a step-by-step tutorial to learn the aircraft and how they handle. There is detailed info on each included aircraft and each of the hand-crafted airports. You'll also learn about the UI (user interface), ATC, camera views and much more.

    Check it out...now available at the FlightSim.Com Store:

    That's rediculous.Pay extra for a manual that should have come with the sim.Tomavis

    Does the price include updates when the Sim is upgraded?

    If the boxed version comes with a (printed) manual then why doesn't the download version come with an electronic version of the manual (pdf)?

    I've been told that the manual will receive updates from time to time, and these will be free to existing customers.

    That is a question you'll need to ask Microsoft. SoFly is just trying to fill a gap for something Microsoft should have done.

    When will the new version(v1.10) be available. SoFly said I should get the update from the vendor I bought it from. They said it's already been sent.

    The new version is out now, with 28 additional pages added. You can go to your FlightSim.Com Store account and download it now.

    Yes - downloads never expire so you can redownload it as new versions come out.

    Thanks for the tip. I upgraded my computer, bought MSFS, downloaded it (tried to) but there was a power outing (wind) and still 62 GiB are missing. You can't resume and it's now stuck in the updating. Been retrying for 9 days now. If it doesn't work in the next hours I'll ask for a refund (so helps me Gosh), and willl be back to recover my faithful FSX.

    Bst rgds.
