Flying high under a gorgeous sunrise.

Celebrating one hundred years of aviation.

First released on the Apple II in 1979 and the IBM PC in 1982, Flight Simulator has been around for more than thirty years. Flight Simulator 2004: A Century of Flight celebrates the 100th anniversary of the first flight by adding nine historical aircraft — ranging from the Wright Flyer to the Douglas DC-3 — as well as recreations of famous flights such as Lindberg’s Atlantic crossing. Though the “new features” list in this ninth entry in the venerable series is fairly short, virtually every aspect of this classic simulation has seen the usual refurbishing.

Along with the typical Flight Sim fare—the Learjet, Cessna 182S, and Boeing 737/747/777—the 24 flyable aircraft include classics such as the Spirit of St. Louis, Ford Tri-Motor, Lockheed Vega, and de Havilland Comet air racer. Surprisingly, given the focus of this edition, the Sopwith Camel (a staple found in the very first version) and F4U Corsair from the 2002 edition are missing, as is the Cessna 182RG.

The flight models of the built-in aircraft have been significantly improved, with the exception of the Cessna 172, a docile trainer in real life that can be a deathtrap in the sim. The updated modeling lets the Extra 300 aerobatic plane finally spin as realistically as in Flight Unlimited. For the first time in a Flight Sim game, helicopter controls are actually manageable. The Bell 206 JetRanger has been tamed, and the new Robinson R22 chopper is a great learning craft. The 3D models have been tweaked as well, with the new virtual cockpits boasting clickable controls.

Air traffic control has been significantly tweaked as well. In mid-flight, you can file an instrument flight plan, request altitude or destination changes, or ask for a specific published approach. It’s not perfect, but it’s significantly better than before. You can finally learn from watching AI aircraft, as they fly more realistic patterns. Taxiing, both for you and the AI, has been improved, with taxiway markers added at major airports.

Those wondering where the “game” is in Flight Simulator won’t find an answer here. The challenge and entertainment comes from learning about flying, recreating historic flights, and tackling thr high tech gizmos that keep your virtual plane airborne.

  4. Spirit says:

    Hi! I’d love to thank you for posting this game. I’m having a bit of difficulty though. I downloaded the game and unzipped everything and found no instructions in any of the files to make the game work. I’m not sure what files I need to mount. I can install the game, but an error that says something like “Please login with the correct account” continues to pop up. I’d really love some assistance. Thank you!

  5. Sorry guys.

    Please download again – it will run this time.

  6. Sniv says:

    AWWWW man! I paid for a subscription to firedrop, and now none of the links for any game will work. Apparently all the links have been removed because of digital rights . . . ahhhh crap!
    Can the games be reupped? I wanted to get Half-Life 2 and Call of Duty 2.


  7. Don’t panic dude. It’s just a maintenance thing. The files are all safe. Try to log out and download, that might work.

    Wait for a day or so and maybe they’ll fix it so you can download while signed in.

  8. JM says:

    How do I download? I see a red-colored square Download Link, but it looks like a sneaky advertising embed rather than the download link for Flight Simulator 2004.

    Also, a) is this free? and b) any idea if this is the simulator package I can use to participate in the IVAO pilot training? I’m totally new to all of this — including game software.

  9. Sorry for the lack of responses. I was away. The red download button isn’t fake.

    But if you want a more complete flight package that runs on modern Windows you should buy Flight Simulator 10 (X), since it’s a much better simulator. It comes on DVD I think and you can buy it on eBay. No idea how wise it is to use these sims as a substitute for real flight training.

    Hi, I have downloaded the game and installed it, but when I try to play the game, nothing happens. I have set the compatibility mode and administrator mode, but nothing loads up. Please help.

  11. ali uzair says:

    I download this file 2 times but every time it shows me a message that Dll files are missing what can I do.. this is corrupted file… I advice to everyone not to download this link fake.

  12. It’s fake is it? You want me to make a video holding your hand, showing you how to install it?

  13. Caroline says:


    I didn’t say it was a fake.

    I have installed it and I just need some help to get it to work on my PC.

    I have Windows 8.1 and have it in compatibility for XP Service Pack 3. I have set up Administrator running. I just keep getting a pop up asking if the program worked okay on the compatibility setting. I can’t get the game to run.

  14. Hi Caroline. I know you didn’t, I was referring to ali uzair in the above comment.

    I never tried running this on Win8.1, so I can’t be of much help. I only ran it on a vintage XP pc as shown in the video. I’d suggest using a virtual machine with XP on it, but it takes some work setting it up and needs an XP cd.

  15. Caroline says:


    I’ll keep playing around with it and if I manage to get it working, I’ll let you know. 🙂

  16. Caroline says:

    I got it to work on Win8.1

    Your video came in very useful. For some reason, when it installed into my PC, the discs 1 – 4 didn’t appear in the folder. Once I copied them into the folder the game started.

    It plays fine in XP service pack 3 comptability mode. You also need to make sure the game is run as Administrator, otherwise you get an access error. 🙂

    works great, thanks for this.

  18. John says:

    Its Stuck In Start Cannot Run

  20. Mike says:

    Hello, I’ve successfully downloaded the files, but I don’t know how to “change disc” when installing…
    I launched Setup.exe from Disc 1, but i have no idea how to pass on to Disc 2.

  21. Mount the second disc image file (Disc2) just like you mounted the first one. Find my video a few comments up.

  22. Mike says:

    NEEEEEEEVERMIND I figured it out.

  23. galih permana says:
