Aerofly FS 2 major update with VR and LNAV/VNAV support






Dear Aerofly users,


we have just published a major update into the Beta channel of Steam. Since we made lots of changes, we will leave it in Beta for now, until we have had enough feedback from you.


To check out the Beta version of Aerofly FS 2 do the following

  • Right click on Aerofly FS 2 in your Steam Library and choose 'Properties'
  • From the properties window select the tab titled "Betas". From this page select the applicable beta from the drop-down menu. If you've previously opted into a beta you can opt out by selecting the menu option.

Here is a list of changes:


  • Preliminary support for Oculus Rift and HTC Vive. Please note, this is a very early implementation. Also keep in mind to use a very fast 3D graphic card.
