Microsoft Flight Simulator: all keyboard shortcuts

Microsoft Flight Simulator is not a game for everyone , especially because of the hours it takes to learn to play and also because of the learning curve. In addition, although you can play with a controller, keyboard and mouse, your thing is to have a joystick and other peripherals in order to simulate the cockpit of an airplane.

Microsoft's flight simulator is available on Xbox Game Pass , so if you are subscribed you can give it a try. Of course, I recommend doing the tutorial to learn the basics. Starting from scratch without doing the tutorial can leave you frustrated. If you play with keyboard and mouse the list of shortcuts is endless. However, in the game settings you can have it tell you at any time which keys to press to do X action. Okay, let's go over all the keyboard shortcuts.


Keyboard shortcuts
