Yes, you can but I wouldn't recommend it. Even the cheapest joy stick is better than the keyboard.

Your best bet is a joystick with a twist handle for the rudder controls but you can fly by keyboard, it's not as much fun

Here are the keyboard commands.
Why not download and print them out, they come in handy sometimes.

Yes you can.But its much easier to use a joystick at least to control your craft.You can find all the keys settings to the main FS menu.

No, not in Flight Simulator 2004. I would get a joy stick. If you insist on using the key board, here's a guide. 🙂

..bit late of a reply, but yeah.. don't use keyboard. fly-by-keyboard simming is so un-realistic.. and impossibly to master.

i used to have a joystick (which is better than a keyboard) .. but i'd recommend the CH yoke and rudder pedals. EXCELLENT value.. worth every penny. all my landings are soo smooth now... 😀

Further to everyone's opinions, I would recommend a joystick. I used the keyboard when I first had FS and a joystick is much much better. Even a simple joystick is better than using the keyboard and you can control the plane better as well.

whoever lands a boeing or airbus without autopilot engaged on ils using keyboard is a master for me!. I'm almost unable to start, jesus this is one crazy game, I'm telling you guys! Geek

I've bought one from Logitech for £25

but I wouldn't recommend it for FS9.It's gonna be hard to buy something under this price. I mean really if you are a enthusiastic about flying and little freak as all of us, buy a joy with g-force! Of course it's more expensive, but it's worth it.

can you recomend any others
