A friend has FS2000 Professional which is a simulation of which I was unaware. It came with an excellent printed manual that was much easier to follow than FS2004 with it's electronic information.

Has anyone ever come across this professional version before and is there in fact a similar manual for FS2004?

FS 98 came with a small printed manual - airport charts mainly but practically nothing on flying. At the time I bought a Microsoft indorsed book which cost me twice as much as the actual FS 98. As a printed manual so to speak it was a much more in depth guide than what was presented in FS itself. I still own it and occasionally use it as a reference.

FS 2004 - I could swear I've seen one in some bookshop, but being a niche market you might have to do the walking and find a friendly shop assistant who knows how to look up available books in the data base and even go to the lengths of giving you a quote and order one for you 😀

Good luck, if you do manage to get your hands on one, share your find with us.

Thanks for the information, it looked to me as the first and third were for the real thing rather than FS9. I'll have a look at the "Official Strategies & Secrets" via Amazon UK to see whether they list it.

Thanks for the info - I located one with Amazon UK and have it on order to be delivered this week.

The FS Manual (Learning center) is in the MSGAME2 file on disk 1. 182mb so it should be at least a couple of hundred pages.

Noted thanks. I rather like to have a book in my hand wherever possible as it is possible to delve without interrupting whatever might be happening on screen. Also the illustrations in the FS98 book I sighted were very helpful.

Looking at the Microsoft book for 2004 indicated it was well produced, had a lot of easily-accessible material and above all easy to read. The contents list was pretty encouraging and a sample page suggested that it would be handy.

👍 I'm with you all the way, besides I don't own a printer Hack

The thought of printing off 200+ pages was pretty daunting and likely as expensive as buying the book!
