  1. Would airplanes downloaded from the previous version still work or will I have to redownload everything all over again?

    1. In most cases yes, older aircraft will work fine with newer versions of the program but we don’t make any promise that every feature or graphics element will show up perfectly in the new version. If you have a few favorite aircraft, you may want to see if there are newer versions of those with each new release.

  2. Very nice. But question can I update or must I download the complete new version ??
