The next-generation of Microsoft Flight Simulator will have its second update, Patch #2, landing for download next week. Patch #1 was focused mainly on installation issues and unexpected application crashes. Patch #2 will be fixing a lot of in-sim features such as missing wind when using Live Weather, Garmin avionics issues featuring autopilot, and performance improvements when flying near highly detailed hand-crafted international airports.
The exact date for the Patch #2 release is not yet given, but as we saw with the Patch #1, Microsoft will inform the minute when the new patch has been released, in its official social media accounts, such as @msfsofficial. Full patch notes will be released with the update when it is landed for download.
