Finally, after years of waiting, Microsoft has given a sequel to their 2020 classic simulator. We can’t wait to go back to soaring through the sky on our favorite planet. But a big part of the fun of the 2020 Flight Sim was all about the user created content. Let’s look, then, at the Flight Simulator 2024 mods and what we know so far.
The amount of custom created content for Flight Simulator 2020 was nothing short of impressive, available for free it allowed users to keep up to date with changes in airports and new planes, among other things.

The company has confirmed that all aircraft and airports present in FS 2020, as well as almost all of the extensions on Marketplace, will be supported in Flight Simulator 2024.
Not only that, but Microsoft has confirmed that they will still be providing support for FS 2020 even after the launch of Flight Simulator 2024. The 2020 variant will continue to be updated, including updates to planes, cities and worlds.
