Freeware on the web

Microsoft Flight Simulator 2002 - The Flight Sim Museum looks at a sample of the many thousands of free aircraft and scenery available on the web, plus links to the most popular sites.

MSFS2002 downloads

The open architecture of the Microsoft flight sims inspired a thriving community of fans who share their work on-line. Check out Links to see the main websites which host these files. Then get busy downloading! Most of the downloads are small - being 1 to 5 MEG in size, but the sky is the limit, so to speak.

I start by looking at the basics of scenery installation and then examine in detail some of the more outstanding aircraft, scenery and airports.

Aircraft

  • BAe 146-300
  • C-17 Globemaster
  • Convair 580
  • De Havilland DH-82 Tiger Moth
  • Eurocopter AS332L2
  • F/A-18 Hornet VF-81
  • Learjet - Iberia
Scenery
  • Scenery installation
  • Australia scenery
  • Sydney
  • Katoomba
  • Hobart International Airport
  • Kansai Airport
  • Matsumoto Airport
The Museum can only hope to glance at what are literally thousands of files here so if your appetite is whetted then get to the links page and start browsing. Perhaps you'll end up, like many other flight fans creating enhancements which bring your local area more accurately into the world of Microsoft Flight Simulator 2002.
