Next Mission

At the end of a mission, click RETURN TO MAIN MENU and launch the next mission from the game menus.


The in-game logbook does not currently record flying hours during missions.

This will require a fix from the MSFS team.

Working Title G1000 Mod

A new G1000 is in production for MSFS, courtesy of Working Title. This is WIP and incomplete, with some important features missing.

Until this is a fully developed package for MSFS, we cannot offer compatibility and we recommend use of the default G1000 in the meantime.


The following aspects are under investigation for future updates:

Failure Behaviour

Currently the indication of a failed mission is a line of dialog, after which the aircraft will continue to fly and some further mission dialog may be played. A more distinct and clear indication of a failed mission is WIP.


Check your installation

Ensure you have unzipped and put the "fsacademy-ifr" folder in your community folder, if purchased from a store other than Marketplace or Orbx.

For Marketplace, ensure you have restarted MSFS and looked in the Activities - CUSTOM CONTENT menu.

Mod Conflict

You may have a conflict with another mod or package.

Please move all mods out of your community folder and only have "fsacademy-ifr" in there as a compatibility test.

You can then re-introduce mods one by one to see which is causing the issue.

Uninstalled Aircraft

After MSFS updates, aircraft may become uninstalled without your knowledge, causing them to disappear in the aircraft select screen and hiding any missions that use that aircraft.


Use the Content Manager within MSFS to reinstall any missing aircraft.


There have been rare cases where a downloaded ZIP had become corrupted. Try to redownload from your place of purchase and try installation again.

Reinstall MSFS

Although potentially a lengthy process, there have been several reports of various mission packs being correctly installed, but not appearing in the menus. A reinstallation has been known to resolve this issue and others.


Currently only English voice and text guidance is available. 


FS Academy is a small studio which makes obtaining multiple voiceovers, subtitles and manual versions in various languages unfeasible at present, but we hope to expand localisation options in the future, but no timeframe is provided.

A transcript is not currently available, but is being considered for inclusion in future updates.


The FS Academy range is available on a wide selection of platforms. To discuss transferring a purchase from one store to another, please contact the store in question.


We are not aware of a current method where this is supported, but the stores themselves can advise you further.


FS Academy missions packs may not be compatible with other third-party mods.

The Working Title G1000 NXi mod is currently in Beta and is not supported.

If you find that aircraft systems do not behave as expected, such as blank radios , visible 3D pilot 'avatar' and inoperative instruments, uninstall any aircraft mods you may have to ensure correct functioning.
