Microsoft Flight Simulator 2004

Boeing 737 with jetway in FS2004.Microsoft Flight Simulator 2004 or FS2004 as it's known in the industry was the flight simulator that modernized the industry.  Released back in 2003 by Microsoft, this version was a game-changer for the future of PC flight simulation.

While many years have passed since its release, many thousands of users have stuck with this old faithful and never even shifted to the newer FSX (which was released in 2006).

While the freeware and payware released have slowed down for this version, many developers have still built in compatibility for FS2004.  From time to time, new releases come out that include FS2004 compatibility and we will announce them in the news section below.

Also included below are four articles that may be of interest (editor's selection), chosen by our in-house editors and updated every two days.

Don't forget, we still support FS2004 add-ons and have many thousands of free to download files in our file library here.
