How To Play Old FSX Game While Flying in Microsoft Flight Simulator

Microsoft Flight Simulator just received its 40th Anniversary update. It includes a number of new aircraft, heliports, airports, and helicopters in addition to a number of previously released classic missions. It’s a hefty update that adds a number of hotly-desired improvements to the most recent installment of the cherished Flight Simulator series.

It also contains a brand-new easter egg: Flight Simulator can now be played inside of Microsoft Flight Simulator.

You can play Microsoft Flight Simulator from far back in 1982—and the three games that came after, all the way down to Flight Simulator 4 from 1989—on the plane’s in-game console specifically by loading up in a Diamond DA62. In 2022, you will be able to experience the entire 1980s in Microsoft Flight Simulator on a plane’s dashboard.

You must first enter the cockpit view while on the runway, then you must roll down to the ELT switch in the right-side digital display’s lower right corner. Once it is turned on, you can watch as the left-side display transforms into a playable rendition of earlier flight sims. At the top, you can switch between games. An on-screen keyboard lets you manage the action.

While quirks like this are fun and all but the 40th Anniversary Patch delivers way more including a number of brand-new aircraft and the Airbus A230, a large, established jet airliner. Of course, the historical aircraft thrill me more, such as the Spruce Goose, a charmingly enormous and useless wooden seaplane. Flight Simulator is at its best, in my opinion, because it can simulate historical aircraft that are both realistic and ridiculous, such as a Halo dropship.

However, do not update your Windows 11 to the latest version if you want to enjoy your Flight Simulator experience.
