A Guide to Flight Simulator v1.50 Released – A320NEO Tutorial Flight

Without a doubt, a must have for everyone (Not just for beginners).
A very tight price for everything it offers. Recommended 100% AAA+++.

David L, SoFly Customer

Our newest update is now LIVE. Version 1.50 of A Guide to Flight Simulator brings you a fully featured tutorial flight for the Airbus A320NEO. This is perhaps our most anticipated update yet and adds 20 all-new pages to the guide to help you fly from San Francisco to Seattle in the passenger jet.

We also took the time to ensure that some other quality of life improvements were made to some errors and mistakes that our community has picked up over the past few weeks.

All of the update notes are down below.

How to Get the Update

To get version 1.50, you will need to redownload it from your original point of purchase. If you ordered it from SoFly’s store, then you will need to login to your account and click on the download button for the new guide.

However, if you downloaded the guide from another store (e.g. simMarket), then you will need to login to that account and redownload it.

As a reminder, this update is free of charge for all customers.

Please note that all stores have now received the files, but it may take a few hours to get them uploaded. You should be notified when your store has a new download waiting.

If you have yet to become a customer, you can buy your copy here.

A320 Tutorial Flight

This is our main focus for this guide update. Our tutorial will take you on a short hop from San Francisco (KSFO) to Seattle Tacoma Airport (KSEA). The guide will take you through a step-by-step tutorial from starting with the aircraft in a cold & dark state all the way to shutting down at the other end. We also cover autolandings, derated take-offs and much more.

Japan Update

With the World Update released from Microsoft right before publication, we were able to sneak in some details about the update into the guide. A future update to A Guide to Flight Simulator will cover the update in more detail including all airports.

Quality of Life Improvements

Some of our customers have been passing on feedback to us to continuously improve the quality of the guide since release. We have listened to all of that feedback and updated the guide since with multiple changes reflecting what they had pointed out to us.


We’re pleased to announce that soon a Simplified Chinese Edition and a French Edition of A Guide to Flight Simulator will soon be made available free to current customers. More details on those translations coming soon.

We’re also looking for anyone to help us translate the guide into German and Spanish. If you’re up to the task, send us an email.

New Product Announcement

We’ll be announcing a new product on Friday 2nd October 2020. Keep an eye on your inboxes for what it could be!
