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.

You can view the categories below for more information on each section.

Civil Jet Aircraft

Civil and passenger jet aircraft (larger, generally jet-driven) such as those you would fly in on your commercial flights with various airlines around the world.  Examples of commercial passenger airlines include; United Airlines, American, British Airways, Emirates, Easyjet, and more.  

Large civil aircraft in this category include aircraft from manufacturers such as Boeing, Airbus, McDonnell Douglas, Bombardier, and many more are all included in this category.

This category includes many repaints based on the default selection of MSFS2020 aircraft along with new base models including aircraft that are not featured in the standard installation (expansions and mods).  This is our most popular category so far.

General Aviation Aircraft

General Aviation (GA) aircraft add-ons including full base models and repaints for third-party and default MSFS aircraft.  General Aviation or "light" aircraft include those prop-driven, single-engine, double engine aircraft you would find at your local airfield - these are the aircraft you may have done flight training in or even completed your Private Pilots Licence in.

Big GA names include; Cessna, Piper, Pilatus, De Havilland, Mooney, Zlin, and more.  This section is growing daily so be sure to check it often for the latest updates.

Our selection of scenery enhancements and mods which include complete new airports, reworked airports based on the default, ground terrain, photoreal scenery, and fixes.  Also included are reworked cities, towns, and buildings. 

This section seems to be the first to be expanded as the freeware developers are concentrating more on scenery add-ons at the moment as they are easier to work with the current SDK information available.

Utilities & Tools

There are many different utilities and tool add-ons for MSFS that have been created by freeware developers (and payware demos).  The files featured here work alongside the latest flight sim - they make things easier and help you achieve tasks that you wouldn't be able to with the stock install.  Our most popular file in this section is without doubt our keyboard commands/bindings list.
