time acceleration

I am new to Microsoft Flight SIm, but have flown some other games where you can time accelerate. I don't want to spend 8 hours staring at a computer screen if I want to fly from Seattle to London......

Can this be done in FSX?

I know there's a key sequence, but I usually hit [ALT], then use the menu from the top of the screen.

Interesting. I will have to try that. I usually fly in full screen, so I never see a menu at the top of the screen. Thanks

It's hidden until I hit [ALT]. I think the key to activate time compression is R if you want to try that route. R, then = for faster time, - for slower.

I may be wrong on that... I don't usually do it that way. 😎

You'll still be in full screen mode, jellrod. It gives you an MSFS menu, not a windows menu.

Hit "R" in game then use + or - keys at the top of keyboard.
