FSX Missions

This section features a wide variety of missions and adventure packs for Microsoft Flight Simulator X.  Missions are a great way to expand your copy of FSX, adding some fun and exciting challenges.

Missions are a new feature Microsoft added into Flight Simulator X, and this option has never been seen before in previous versions of FS.  Microsoft created a new API, which allowed information such as flying hoops, arrows and instructional information to be integrated within the simulation.

The default copy of FSX includes some standard missions, however many developers have taken it into their own hands to create and release add-on missions, which can all be found here.

The most well known mission (which is also included in the default version of FSX) is the "oil rig fire" mission, where virtual pilots fly a helicopter onto the helipad on the rig.  Helicopters are great aircraft for taking on missions, however there are many missions for fixed wing aircraft too.

Installing the mission files is quite a straightforward procedure, and most of the files come with installation instructions to aid installation.

You can browse through the missions below and find something exciting and fun for you.
