Whether you purchase Aerofly FS 2 from Steam, Aerosoft, or the Mac Store you will be pleased to know that there aren't many differences between versions, however, there are differences in the availability of DLC (download content) on each platform.
Purchasing on Steam will provide you with the largest availability of DLC currently out.
Note- After purchasing and installing Aerofly FS 2 you should always download and install all of the free DLC available as some of this is needed to get the most out of your experience. You should also look at the ever growing library of high quality purchasable DLC as well.
Download additional DLC content by following these simple steps:
Note if your DLC download doesn't begin and you have the box checked sometimes Steam doesn't recognize this, simply uncheck the box then recheck again, your download should begin now.
When launching Aerofly FS 2 from Steam you have three options.
At times, updates will be presented to you through the beta channel. This option allows for the community to “test out” the latest update to provide valuable feedback to the developers, while separating those that do not want to participate. You can always opt out of beta in the same way. Note - Many times both beta and regular channels are at the same version.
If you don't use Steam or you want your own physical copy of Aerofly FS 2 Flight Simulator head over to the Aerosoft Shop where you have the option of purchasing as a DVD copy or direct download.
Note The copies that obtain from Aerosoft will not be the latest version of Aerofly available. You will need to update your version by heading over to the Aerofly FS 2 Support Page to get the latest version.
You will also need to activate any non-Steam copy by visiting the Activation Page
Note The latest DLC may not be available for the Aerosoft versions when released on Steam. We will make every effort to make these available for all non Steam copies.
By default the Aerofly FS installer creates two special start entries in the program group folder of the Windows start menu for you; one for Oculus VR and one for Steam VR. Use one of these to launch in VR mode.
Note You can create a desktop shortcut of the start menu option that you use for easier access to VR mode.
For all of our Mac owners we didn't forget about you. Apple Mac Store You will need to purchase Aerofly FS 2 by opening your Mac App Store and following the instructions there.
