DOWNLOAD THE MANUAL
CLICK HERE to download the Voyager manual
How to obtain the latest updates depends on your place of purchase:
Update via the Orbx Direct App.
Redownload from your place of purchase to obtain the latest version.
Some stores such as SimMarket operate a customer notification system where you should receive an email to inform you that there has been an update. There will also be forum posts on the official MSFS forums.
Stores are provided with the latest version simultaneously, but some may take longer than others to update their systems.
For an update to take effect, you may have to delete your progress, as outlined in the manual. Consider delaying an update if you do not wish to reset your progress.
Installation for Marketplace and Orbx purchases are automated.
For other stores, follow these instructions:
1 - Unzip "FS Academy - VOYAGER vXX.ZIP" and locate the "fsacademy-voyager" folder contained within.
2 - Drag & Drop “fsacademy-voyager” into your MSFS Community folder.
3 - Restart MSFS and the Missions will be in the Bush Trips Menu.
LOCATING THE COMMUNITY FOLDER
The location of your community folder depends on the store from which you purchased MSFS and whether you chose a custom installation location.
CUSTOM INSTALL LOCATION
If you chose your own installation directory when you first installed MSFS, you should easily be able to locate the community folder within the path you chose during installation.
For example: D:/Games/MSFS/Community
STANDARD INSTALL LOCATION
If you purchased MSFS via the MS Store, your community folder is typically located here:
If you purchased MSFS via Steam, your community folder is typically located here:
C:\Users\NAME\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft Flight Simulator\Packages\Community
If you are unable to locate you Community folder at the above typical locations, try the following to reveal your Community folder location:
1 - Enable Developer Mode in Options -> General -> Developer Mode ON
2 - In the new Developer menu that appears at the top of your screen, click Tools -> Virtual File System -> Watched Bases. 3 - See the Community folder location listed in the box.
This Drag + Drop method of installation is identical to countless other addons for MSFS.
If you still cannot find your community folder after checking the standard locations above, consider searching online as there are forum posts and guidance provided by the community.
FS Academy missions packs may not be compatible with modded aircraft.
If you find that aircraft systems do not behave as expected, such as blank radios and inoperative instruments, uninstall any aircraft mods you may have.
MISSIONS DO NOT APPEAR
Check your installation
Ensure you have unzipped VOYAGER and put the "fsacademy-voyager" folder in your community folder.
You may have a conflict with another mod or package.
Please move all mods out of your community folder and only have "fsacademy-voyager" in there as a compatibility test.
You can then re-introduce mods one by one to see which is causing the issue.
Two Community Folders
Some installations may have created TWO community folders. If missions are missing, use the Developer Mode steps above to see which folder is used by MSFS and put "fsacademy-voyager" into that folder.
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.
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.
FLIGHTS NOT APPEARING IN LOGBOOK
At present there appears to be issues with MSFS not recording flights of various kinds, which is expected to be improved by the MSFS team over time.
SETTING CUSTOM BUSHTRIP CONDITIONS
On the first leg of a bush trip, you have the opportunity to set the Weather, date, season, time etc with the weather icon in the toolbar.
The settings you choose will persist for the remainder of that trip. To reset them you will need to delete your progress and restart the trip, using the below technique.
RESETTING A BUSH TRIP
To delete your progress and start a trip again, navigate to this standard path and delete or rename the save files for that trip. Be careful to only delete the saves for the trips you intend to restart. This folder may need unhiding.
We recommend Pinning this location to your start menu for easy access:
Steam users should look here:
C:\Users\NAME\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft Flight Simulator\MISSIONS\ACTIVITIES
AFTER LANDING THE LEG DOES NOT END
MSFS Bush Trip logic requires that you come to a full stop ON THE RUNWAY at the end of each leg.
If this only occurs when landing in Canandaigua as part of the New York trip, make sure to update to v1.2.
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.
