    • Added A320 ECAM performs takeoff consistency checks during takeoff configuration test (e.g. if flaps are not at MCDU entered value)
    • Added A320 ECAM caution when fuel pumps are not on after engines are started (gravity fuel start possible like in real world)

  • In the beta, the joystick suddenly stops working in planes. In the menu under basic functions it shows the axes correctly and also works. In the planes it does not...


    I got out of the beta and it worked again in all planes. Thrustmaster TCA Sidestick Airbus Edition...

    Okay, can you please go back to the beta, delete all previous throttle assignments and assign your twin jet and twin prop again?

    I also have the TCA here and it works great with the current beta...

    Do you just have the stick or do you also have the throttle quadrant? If you only have the single slider on the stick then you should only assign the default throttle axis and not the twin or quad engine assignments. But I'm curious why it wasn't working, did you notice any double assignments?

    I have the complete Thrustmaster TCA Captain Pack with flaps, spoiler, throttle etc. and sidestick. It works in normal mode (screen mode). However, when I switch to VR, the sidestick is suddenly without function. In the menu it shows the axes normally, also in VR. When I switch to the plane, suddenly no function. Everything else works. Only the two axes (elevator and aileron) of the sidestick do not in VR! HP Reverb G2 - in Steam VR Mode. If I go out of beta, the axes of the sidestick in VR work normally again....

    Changed the title of the thread from “Aerofly FS 4 Changelog for Beta Version 4.0.7.1 ( 2022-10-20 )” to “Aerofly FS 4 Changelog for Beta Version 4.0.7.3 ( 2022-10-21 )”.
  • We've updated the beta, please check if you now have full control again with your sidestick in VR mode.


    Changes in 4.0.7.3

    • fixed hardware joysticks working again in VR mode
    • changed A320 switch, lever and altitude callout sounds are now louder and audible again

    The sensitivity of using the side stick on the keyboard seems to be too high, is it possible to adjust it?

  • Good day,


    Valve index VR running on PC


    Beta 4.7.3


    there is no recenter view button on the hand controller,

    in the latest release it moved from thumb pad to the upper right button but now the only way to recenter is space bar.


    can not rotate knobs or grab things in the VR space... can only flick switches with pointer finger.

    @captain video: Please check your Steam VR controller settings and ensure that you have enabled the official Aerofly FS 4 Valve Index controller bindings to support all buttons. Depending on what VR controller you are using, you may now reassign the buttons on your controler to selected Aerofly FS 4 functions like recenter VR view.

    @captain video: We would appreciate if you could open a dedicated thread for this topic.


    We have tested the Knuckles controllers with our latest Aerofly FS 4 version and they work just fine. To verify on your side:

    Do the blue hands move properly in VR space? Also, when you press the 'trigger' button on the Knuckles, does the index finger move as well? Same for the grip button, if you press it does the hand close?


    As for the three actions you mentioned, you can ignore them, they are not relevant.
