Or download a free one (no evaluation) at
If you're not sure which one to download this one is most likely:
And if you are unsure how to extract zip files you simply right click and select "extract all".
Then once you've extracted the plane it should have instructions but if not all the items will go in either:
C:\Program Files\Microsoft Games\Microsoft Flight Simulator
or if you have a 64-bit system:
C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Games\Microsoft Flight Simulator

From there if its a basic plane everything will go into simobjects\airplanes

Hope I helped Smile
