The first additional content should be published shortly. "We released more than 1000 add-ons for the last flight simulator, Flight Simulator X. 14 years after its release, we are now working passionately on extensive add-ons for the new Microsoft Flight Simulator. We can hardly wait, gamers to offer additional content that is created at Aerosoft ", comments Winfried Diekmann, CEO and founder of Aerosoft.

Supports PC Games – it only takes a minute. Thank you!

We give all readers daily free news, articles, guides, videos and podcasts on their favorite games. So far we have financed this site through advertising and kept it as free of clickbaits or paid items as possible, but since COVID-19 this has become increasingly difficult. Many companies are cutting or cutting their advertising budgets for 2020. Budgets that we unfortunately have to rely on if we want to continue to offer PC games free of charge as usual in the future.

For this reason we turn to you now. As a PC Games supporter, you can support us so that we can continue to offer our content in the usual form free of charge without introducing a paywall or publishing clickbait news like "And you won't believe what happened next …" . Every contribution, large or small, is valuable.

We thank you in advance.
