Hello there!

I understand your concern about the missing tail wheel Cessna from the deluxe edition of Microsoft Flight Simulator (2020 release). I've seen similar issues arise with other users, so let's see if we can help you out. There could be a few possible reasons for the disappearance of the aircraft, so I'll outline some steps you can take to troubleshoot and hopefully resolve the issue.

1. Verify the installation of the Deluxe edition:

First and foremost, make sure you have indeed installed the Deluxe edition. The tail wheel Cessna is only available in the Deluxe and Premium Deluxe editions, and not in the standard edition. If you have purchased the Deluxe edition, you may need to download the additional content from the marketplace. To do this, follow the steps below:

  • Launch Microsoft Flight Simulator.
  • Navigate to the in-game marketplace.
  • Search for the Deluxe edition content.
  • Download and install the content.

Once you've done this, the tail wheel Cessna should appear in your aircraft selection menu.

2. Check for updates:

Sometimes, updates to the simulator may cause certain content to disappear temporarily. Make sure you have the latest version of the simulator installed, as well as any updates to the aircraft itself. You can check for updates via the Microsoft Store (for the Windows version) or the Xbox app (for the Xbox version).

3. Reset the content.xml file:

Occasionally, the content.xml file may become corrupted, causing certain aircraft to disappear. To fix this issue, you can try resetting the file by following these steps:

  • Close Microsoft Flight Simulator.
  • Navigate to the simulator's installation folder (usually found in C:\Users<YourUsername>\AppData\Local\Packages\Microsoft.FlightSimulator_8wekyb3d8bbwe\LocalCache).
  • Locate the content.xml file and delete it.
  • Relaunch the simulator. It will regenerate a new content.xml file, and the missing aircraft should reappear.

4. Reinstall the aircraft:

If none of the above solutions work, you may need to reinstall the tail wheel Cessna. To do this, follow these steps:

  • Uninstall the aircraft by removing it from the content manager in the simulator.
  • Restart the simulator.
  • Reinstall the aircraft through the content manager or the marketplace.

I hope these steps help you resolve the issue and bring the tail wheel Cessna back to your aircraft selection menu. If you're still experiencing problems, please don't hesitate to reach out to the community for further assistance or consider contacting the official Microsoft Flight Simulator support team.

Safe skies and happy flying!
