Flight Simulator 10 (FSX) is a realistic aircraft simulator developed by Microsoft. The first edition of Flight Simulator was released as FS1 in 1979 to run on the Apple II computer. Flight Simulator for the PC (Version 1.0) was released in 1982. Several versions of Airbus aircraft have been created by software developers to run within the FSX program. Handling problems involving the Airbus have been reported to FSX users.

Airbus Rolls on Start Up
Select the Airbus model you wish to fly from the list of available aircraft in FSX. Choose the airfield that you wish to fly from and the appropriate gate or parking location. FSX will ask if you would like the program to open with the aircraft you selected at that location. Click on "yes" to establish the plane at your selected location. You must be ready to execute a command as soon as the program opens or the aircraft will begin rolling forward. Press the "Ctrl" and "period (.)" keys simultaneously. This will set the parking brake and stop the aircraft from rolling forward.
Be sure the auto throttle is not activated when you begin to taxi. The aircraft will be very difficult to handle on the ground with the auto throttle activated.
Take-off Throttle Problems
Follow the tower instructions to leave your parking location and move to the runway for take-off. When you receive tower clearance to take-off, advance the throttle lever while braking the aircraft. At maximum RPMs, release the brakes and begin the take-off roll. Pull back on the yoke, or joystick, at take-off speed (Vr). Once the aircraft begins to climb, activate the auto throttle and autopilot. At this point be sure to set the manual throttle lever back to zero to allow the auto throttle to govern the speed of the aircraft. Raise the landing gear and follow course directions from air traffic control.
Throttle Landing Problems
Landing the Airbus will be difficult if you do not follow the proper procedures as you approach the airfield. Failure to follow certain steps will result in loss of speed control upon landing and an ultimate crash. As you make a final approach with the autopilot engaged, be prepared to make some quick instrument changes. At an altitude of 200 to 300 feet turn the autopilot off. never land with the autopilot on, because you have no control of the aircraft. At the same time turn the auto throttle off and make certain the manual throttle lever is at idle. Use the yoke or joystick to flare the aircraft softly onto the runway. The instant the wheels touch down press the slant key (/) to activate the speed brakes, then press and hold F2 as you apply brakes to slow the plane so you can exit the runway at the first available exit. Use the manual throttle to control ground speed as you taxi to a gate or parking spot.
