Aerofly FS Paths

Installation Folder

The installation path (or installation folder) of the Aerofly FS 4 is usually defined in the Steam settings.

  1. Open the Steam software.
  2. Click on the “Library” tap at the top.
  3. Select the Aerofly FS 4 Flight Simulator from the list in the left column
  4. Right click on it and select “Properties”
  5. Switch to the tap “Local files” in the window that opens
  6. Click on the button “Browse local files…”

This will open the installation folder of the Aerofly FS 4 in a separate Windows Explorer window.

Contents of the Installation Folder

The installation folder contains all libraries, executables, game-content like textures or models and shaders. The folder contains sub-folders like the aircraft and scenery folder for the default aircraft and sceneries. Custom made aircraft, scenery or liveries should not be installed to these folders, use the user-folder instead (see below).

User Folder

The user folder of the Aerofly FS 4 is a location on the hard drive that is not touched by any Aerofly FS 4 updates. Here all contents either created by the user or installed as add-ons are located. Per default this folder is created in the user-documents.


A short-cut for this directory is: C:\Users\%USERNAME%\Documents\Aerofly FS 4. Simply paste this path into the path text-box of the Windows Explorer, it should automatically replace %USERNAME% with the Windows user currently logged in and open the user folder.


On Mac OS you can find the user folder in your library containers.: Macintosh HD⁩/Users⁩/…/Library⁩/Containers⁩/com.aerofly.aerofly-fs-2-mac/⁨Data⁩/⁨Library/Application Support⁩/Aerofly FS 4

Contents of the User-Folder

The Aerofly FS 4 user folder contains sub-folder for the installation of custom made aircraft (also used for repaint) and scenery, a folder for saved screenshots as well as the personal settings for the simulator (see config-files) as well as the mission progress and the tm.log.

Creating Short-Cuts

When inside the installation or user folder of the Aerofly FS 4 go one directory higher in the Windows Explorer, so that you can see the “Aerofly FS 4 Flight Simulator” or “Aerofly FS 4” folder in the Windows Explorer, then either drag it to the left column of the Windows Explorer to add it into your “Favorites”/“Quick access” or right-click on it and select “Send to” → “Desktop (create link)”.
