How to Take Off in Microsoft Flight Simulator

If this is your first time to fly a plane in Microsoft Flight Simulator, especially the new released 2020 version. There is a good chance that you have no idea on how to take a plane and might be confusing on what the instruction says during the take off training.

When you've tried the training 3 "Take-off & Level Flight" to learn how to take off, it seems the instruction didn't work and you have problem to taxi your plane to the runway. In case, I've increase the throttle speed and pitch the plane just to move it to the runway, but it is wrong.

In this guide, we will help you how to take off your plane the right way.

How to Taxi the plane to the Runway

The first objective is to taxi your plane in to the runway, you can achieve this by turning off your parking brakes.

In computer, this is by pressing the CTRL + NUM DEL from your keyboard. Note, press the DEL button from the numeric keypad not the DEL button on the navigation keys (INS, HOME, PAGEUP, DEL, END, PAGE DWN) area. If you press in the navigation keys, it will not turn off the brake, this is where I was stuck and takes hours to figure out.

In XBOX One controller, to turn off the brake, just press Y or B.

In the cockpit, you can find the parking brake control just at the bottom left corner.

Once your parking breaks are now turn off, you are now ready to taxi your plane to the runway. To taxi your plane, slowly increase the throttle speed to 10 to 15. In keyboard its F3, while on XBOX One Controller its A or B.

This will allow you to move your plane forward, press the NUM 0 to turn to left and NUM Enter to turn to right and move to the center of the runway. In XBOX ONE Controller, control it with the analog LEFT RIGHT.

Once you're at the center, turn on your parking break again by pressing the CTRL + NUM DEL. In XBOX ONE Controller, pressing Y or B.

How to Take off your Plane

Now, since your plane is now at the center of the runway. You're now ready to take off.

To take off, first you need to turn off the parking brake by pressing CTRL + NUM DEL. In XBOX One controller, its Y or B. Then increase the throttle speed to the maximum speed at 100%.

This will move your plane forward, wait until you've reach 55 knots. When you reach it, slowly pitch by pressing NUM 2 until you successfully take off.

That's it guys! Hope this tutorial helps you learn how to take off your plane for the first time.

How to Use Throttle Lever in Microsoft Flight Simulator

In the flight training "Basic Controls & Camera", there is the portion in training that it is hard to figure out if it is your first time to fly a plane in Microsoft Flight Simulator, because there is indicator for what key to press for the instruction, it simply says "Use Throttle Lever, Decrease Throttle to cut engine power".

Looking for the right keys in the control will also take you time, so in this guide we will help you how to do it right.

How to Increase/Decrease Throttle in XBOX Controller

For XBOX One controller, simply press A and B to control the speed of your plane engine. A to increase, while B to decrease the throttle speed.

How to Increase/Decrease Throttle in Keyboard

To increase or decrease the throttle, simply press F2 and F3 from your keyboard. Pressing F3 will increase the Throttle putting more power to the engine, while pressing the F2 will decrease the engine power. However, pressing the F1 will automatically cut off the engine power to 0%.

In the cockpit view, you can also interact inside the cockpit, you'll notice a lever control for THROTTLE at the bottom center of the cockpit. Pressing and holding this lever will also increase/decrease the engine power. Pushing forward to increase, backward to decrease.

Alternatively, you may also use climb (NUM 8 from your keyboard) the decrease the speed of your engine and pitch (NUM 2 from your keyboard) to increase the the speed.

That's it guys! Hope this help you get started with flying at Microsoft Flight Simulator.

If you recently received the new layout of Facebook, you can still switch back to the classic blue-design without any problem. But today, Facebook recently add a feedback survey once you've try switching to the classic version, that says "The classic Facebook experience will no longer be available starting in September. Before the new becomes the default experience, we want to learn more about how we can improve.".

A lot of users are still using the classic blue-design because they are more comfortable to use than the new layout, due to hard to find features and unfamiliarity. Browsers in desktop, laptop and smart phone are one of the affected with these changes. However, we have no information if the 3G mobile interface ( is also affected.

The "New Facebook" was first introduced in 2019 during the F8 Developer conference, it is one of the biggest changes made since their existence wayback 2004; cleaner interface, and allow users to switch to dark mode. But most importantly, it improves the backbone of the site with new programming technologies that improves user experience and compatibility with every phone.

Well, you still have almost a week to enjoy the classic facebook blue-design. Are you one of those users who still prefer to use the old design? Let us know in the comment section.

Stuck at Gathering Quest in Perfect World VNG

If you recently stuck one of the quest in Perfect World VNG specifically for the gathering quest, you'll probably have no idea on how to fix it and you may think it is a bug. Eventually in the game, after you auto-quest each of the game quest, you're stuck on Gathering Feathers quest from the NPC Peregrine near the city hall where you'll be eliminating Iriswings but the gathering of feather didn't progress or stuck at 0/4.

Well, it's not a bug of something, its just Perfect World didn't have a function to notify players that their inventory are already full and need to sort out.

How to Complete Gathering Quest

Make sure your Inventory are not full, the default inventory size for the game is at 40, it will increase as you level up in the game or purchase a space from the store.

To sort out your inventory, just click the bag icon at the upper right corner of the screen.

Dismantle Equipment that are not important like the no-color equipment. Keep in mind, Blue and Purple are important equipment if you're early stage in the game. However, you may dismantle blue once you already have full set of purple equipments.

Once you already have extra space in your inventory, you can now go back eliminating your objective and receive the items for the gathering quest.

That's it guys! If you still have problem with the quest. Please leave a comment down below.

Starborne may well be a rising star in the MMORTS genre, causing at least one of our number here at Massively OP to become "totally and completely addicted" to its gameplay.

David Brevik discusses how Diablo 2's development was marked with a year of crunch

It's easy to think of "crunch" in game development being something of a more recent phenomenon as we've heard more about it.

Star Citizen video and AMA discuss environmental art, rocks, and throwing all the things

Star Citizen's been back in the headlines this week for all the wrong reasons – weird Squadron 42 communication mishaps, pixelships, and huge piles of money being the main ones.

Folks, I am tired. It is a deep sort of tired, the one that seeps down to the bone. And it's the kind of tired that has you looking at the World of Warcraft launcher and thinking about the fun that's coming next… followed not all that long thereafter by a new wave of existing […]

Fall Guys sparks a $325,000 charity bidding war between brands

This may just be the most adorable and wholesome thing you'll read all week.

Past Fate's Kickstarter is 80% funded as its end looms tomorrow

We're down to the wire for MMORPG Past Fate, whose second Kickstarter is set to expire tomorrow morning. A week or two ago, I didn't think they'd make it; only $4000 had been raised by August 21st. But as of today, the game is hovering around $20,000 of its $25,000 goal, meaning it definitely has […]

Epic's new #FreeFortnite Cup promo is another cynical dig on Apple

If you thought Epic Games was being childish or cynical in its attempts to rile up the video game faithful over its otherwise perfectly reasonable anti-monopoly lawsuits against Apple (and Google, though it's been more of an afterthought), well, then you're not going to change your mind as a result of this story. Apparently, a […]

World of Warcraft is adding diminishing returns for secondary stats in Shadowlands

So secondary stats on gear in World of Warcraft have the potential to get out of control. Fortunately, the developers have a solution for Shadowlands by… wait, I heard someone shout, "by ensuring the endgame isn't an ever-escalating series of rewards for overstuffed raid tiers." That's wrong. Be quiet. It's by… no, wait, someone else shouted, […]

The Daily Grind: What malingering Kickstarter MMO do you most want to see launch?

With Crowfall hitting beta and carving out a clear path to launch, it's only natural that we start taking a hard look once again at our regular Make My MMO lists to remind ourselves of all the crowdfunded MMORPGs that are still lingering out there in one state of testing or another without a convincing […]

The Stream Team: Daring to explore Dungeon and Dragons Online's Death House

Massively OP's MJ is celebrating her first stream in her new house by exploring DDO's Death House, purely by coincidence!

The Division 2 previews cosmetic gear customization for Update 11

The Division 2 has a specific look for its characters, and that look involves appearing as if you were shopping at whatever sporting goods stores or military surplus vendors were available to outfit your paramilitary mercenary group.

Astroneer's second big automation update is live – here's the new trailer

If you had asked me a year ago what game my whole family would be playing together this summer, I probably would not have guessed Astroneer, but it's happened, which means my kids are going to be thrilled about the game's latest update, which rolled out yesterday to Steam as of yesterday. This patch is […]

Dual Universe shows off its recruit-a-friend program heading into beta

The best way to get someone into an MMO is via word of mouth. We accept this fact. And the best way to generate word of mouth? Having it come directly from a friend, naturally. This would be the logic behind the recruit-a-friend program arriving for Dual Universe when it kicks off beta testing on […]

Don't look now, but LOTRO is having issues again

I know we joke that Massively OP is not an uptime monitor, but when it comes to Lord of the Rings Online, we have been keeping a closer eye on the game lately thanks to the extended technical issues earlier this summer that took the game more or less offline for more than a week. […]

Vague Patch Notes: How platform considerations impact MMOs

It wasn't until I had been working in this field for a while – and as a result playing a lot of different MMOs – that it really clicked for me how weird it was that Final Fantasy XI didn't have any sort of hotbars. I'd played that game for years, of course. Sorting my […]

Astellia Online opens up stronger equipment and dungeons with its next patch

Once you've reached the level cap in Astellia Online, there's only one option to keep getting stronger, and that's through ever more impressive outfits.

Star Wars: The Old Republic gives Shae Vizla away to subscribers and a Steam portrait ring to everyone

Mandalorians. Who doesn't love them? Certainly not designers; since they're half-defined by an iconic look, you can just put all sorts of people behind the helmet and still evoke fond memories. Shae Vizla hasn't done a whole heck of a lot in Star Wars: The Old Republic, but she's being offered as a free companion […]

Get a crash course in the history of MMOs

Despite what your game's general chat might argue, World of Warcraft wasn't the first MMO and online games didn't magically become a thing with Ultima Online. The real history goes back much further and is more complex than that. If you only have a few spare minutes to get a handle on the vast history […]

Classic EverQuest patches in Necro changes, quest tweaks, and bug fixes

So it became a bit of a running gag in the Massively OP office this week that we became obsessed with August's EverQuest patch. A few days ago, Daybreak put out a notice that the patch was coming, so we started waiting for it, and soon enough it became an internal meme to burst into […]

World of Warcraft has begun testing Shadowlands' endgame

While you tread water at Battle for Azeroth's current endgame, World of Warcraft is testing the endgame you'll be experiencing when you arrive there in 2021. Or 2022 – we won't judge your pokey leveling. Over on the public test realm, Blizzard opened up testing for Shadowlands' endgame. Primarily, this test is for the repeatable […]

Did Amazon just sign on to be Lost Ark's western publisher?

Last night, Amazon announced that it's signed on to an exclusive publishing agreement in North America and Europe with Smilegate, specifically to publish a game from the Korean MMO developer next year.

The Daily Grind: Have you ever dreamed about an MMO?

At least two or three times a year, I have the World of Warcraft expansion dream. It's usually really nice. There are new systems in this new expansion, which has a title I can't recall. It features a lot of the aesthetics I like. It's not about beating up the latest super-powerful maniac to threaten […]

Blade & Soul Midnight Reborn update is now live

The update for Blade & Soul is happening now, but the real fun starts at midnight.

"In an effort […]

Elder Scrolls Online previews the scripted pathing housing tool launching next week

Elder Scrolls Online's Stonethorn DLC is just a week away from its PC launch now, but if you're not enthused about the pair of dungeons it's bringing, you should at least be welcoming its ride-along free update and the brilliant new content it's launching in Tamriel – most importantly, the scripted character pathing inside player […]

Chronicles of Elyria fans have filed the pre-litigation paperwork necessary to sue Soulbound Studios

If you were one of the people who really believed in the goals that Chronicles of Elyria's development team advocated and were hopeful to see the game actually launch, we're sorry for your loss, but we're happy to say that legal action for restitution is moving forward according to the Discord channel tracking the litigation.

Crowfall is getting close to inviting all its registered players into the beta

Kickstarted MMORPG Crowfall dropped into beta last week, free of NDAs and full of content, but not everyone who's ever signed up for the game's testing has been invited. That'll be changing probably sooner than you might've thought. "Beta to us is not about starting a particular version," ArtCraft's Todd Coleman explains. "It's about getting […]

CIG basically just released a preview of Squadron 42's roadmap progress

OK, OK, you can put your pitchforks down – or maybe just set them to the side for a while as you read the Squadron 42 dev blog that Cloud Imperium put out today. The publish comes after weeks of justified complaining from the Star Citizen community over the fact that real news on S42, […]

Perfect Ten: 10 great tropical areas to visit in MMOs

Probably a lot of us aren't getting that fantastic summer beach vacation that we had hoped to get this year. But instead of getting bummed out by that, why not visit a tropical resort or two in MMORPGs? Tropical zones are among my favorite zones in MMOs because they're so peaceful and serene, even if […]

The Soapbox: Stubborn MMO players are sleeping on autoplay mechanics

Autoplay, huh. What is it good for? Absolutely something! I'll say it again: There is value in autoplay. It's got such a bad reputation in the western MMO community. From our perspective, anyone who plays it is either a sucker, a lazy whale, or both. But does that really justify an instant-uninstall, or is our […]
