Too large to be home printed for references.

Long awaited and very useful, BUT, too large for easy and swift access to detail.

I would rather pay more for a hard booklet/manual, preferably loose leaves so that it can be updated. easily.

The language of MSFS is not as familiar to former users of previous MS Simulators which makes navigation of the pdf version laborious.

Most of your reviewers have very pertinent observations and they could all be assimilated in a loose leaved booklet and your income increased by niche additions by your captive list of purchasers who want to catch up with the bits you do not cover in any depth. It would be just like an aircraft builders maintenance folder and made for updates and fresh observations. You could ask for volunteers to submit their expertise in certain areas and, if appropriate pay a reward for chosen work, especially if it was submitted by professionals.

In this way, the builders of the software could absorb and develop their own product in an ordered way. Dedicated magazines like, " PC Pilot", might increase your marketing targets by opining on relevant improvements to your expanding data. Just as these magazines showcase new aircraft in the FS world, so might your manual, but in a sub-folder for specialist products on hardware or scenery, airports or navigation and comms.

My point really is that you have an excellent product with which to start and the model can then commence to be multifaceted with many income options which vary from straight purchase to serial. annual commitments. A lot more could be charged for de-luxe presentations, for example.

Keep this confidential. !!!
Don't tell MS, less they see it as a moneymaker!!!!!!!

Not bad

Beautiful manual. Some of the stuff at the beginning is unneeded fluff, was hoping for a little more explaining some of the things like flight plan, iFR, and so. Still, great purchase.

Jeffery Gooding
Best resource I have found

Screen shots are great references to the actual game. I have purchased other references that spend more time on rudimentary flying skills vs helping with use of the control and use of the game. Looking forward to any updates to the manual. Would like more information on bringing in real time traffic. Selected “Live traffic” multiple times but can’t see anything matching the ADSB exchange. Great manual overall. Well worth the money.

MSFS 2020 SoFly Manual

Being a reasonable competent FSX SE flyer and looking for a new challenge I invested in MSFS 2020 and was immediately overwhelmed by how different it was. I shopped round for a manual and choose the SoFly digital download version which has turned out to be exactly what I was looking for. It is well laid out, not over complicated and full of useful information for all MSFS 2020 flyers.

Tim Machin

After 30 years of casual simming I thought that given the complexity of FS20 I had better read a manual!
There seems to be a shortage of reliable and well written publications and fortunately I found this one before being lured into an Amazon title badly translated from Spanish or Korean which seems to be the usual fare
Apart from the name, which sounds like a Graham Norton production this ebook oozes quality. It’s easy to read, the graphics rival a Dorland Kindersley book and the content is bang on.

Dennis Nolan
Best of the rest

best overall guide to what can be a very confusing app

Perfect, a must have

You should be paid by microsoft to bring so much value. Very Very helpful.
What can you improve : A french version 🙂

Augusto Morosini
A manual, finally!

As usual, someone else has to think about it because if we wait for Microsoft ... I hope it will be updated periodically so this flight simulator will have a manual!

George Roukis

Thoughtful and well written manual. A must for the sim community.

John Reuvers

I have been looking for a manual everywhere, PDF or paper but nothing. Not even at Microsoft itself, or I just did not succeed in finding it.
And this is exactly what I was looking for. For a more than friendly price!
