Microsoft Flight Simulator Update 9 Patch Notes – April 26, 2022

  • A new Spotlight Event landing challenge is available for you to fly, featuring the Cessna 172 Skyhawk landing at Kingston Airport in Nevada.
  • CFD simulation is now available on the Cessna 172 Skyhawk G1000 and can be enabled by aircraft creators.
  • New FXs added to the F/A-18E/F Super Hornet. Experimenting G force now triggers wingtips & wing vortex. You can also discover the vapor cone as you break the sound barrier. High speed and low altitude will also interact with the environment over snow, dust & water.
