Microsoft Flight Simulator Mods and Addons
Welcome to our brand-new freeware downloads and addons category created specifically for Microsoft's latest flight simulator, Microsoft Flight Simulator (MSFS) 2020 release - also affectionately known as FS2020 by many veteran flight sim enthusiasts and users.

It's worth noting that FS2020 isn't an official abbreviation and we will, going forward continue to announce MSFS as the abbreviation that we will use for this new sim (following suit with may other websites and partners).
Exciting isn't it! The new sim was officially released on August 18th, 2020 and already there are freeware releases created and developed by enthusiasts, hobbyists, and members of the flight sim community who have adopted this new sim.
Unfortunately, while many users were hoping and expecting that those previous mods available for FSX would work with this version - they won't - at least not without a great deal of modification and porting over to the new platform.
Having said that, it can be done and many freeware developers are already working on porting FSX mods and addons over to the new 2020 release using various tools. The new file structure and configuration files are very similar to the legacy platform (FSX/FS2004... etc) and Microsoft has tried their hardest to make development as familiar as possible.
In this addons category, we will cover many of the different mod subcategories for the latest version including freeware aircraft (whole models and repaints), scenery files such as airports, fixes, and photoreal, tools, and utilities, and many more sections to be added as releases become available. We also, of course, have our new popular keyboards commands page available to our users.
Bookmark this page as it's the essential hub for all of the latest freeware mods and addons and will be updated regularly as releases become available.
If you are a freeware developer with something specifically for the latest 2020 Microsoft Flight Simulator release, please see our notice (in green) at the top of this page - we'd love to list your addons.
Worth noting, we, of course, have many freeware Fly Away Simulation in-house developments and productions coming for the new sim. These include scenery addons and aircraft mods.
