Flight Simulator Achievements list

A list of all the Achievements available in the 2020 edition of Flight Simulator.

Flight Simulator features a variety of achievements for you to uncover and complete as you play the game.

Some of these you'll earn naturally of the course of free flight and while playing specifically designed activities - while others only unlock in very specific circumstances, so glancing over them can give you an idea if you're after a new challenge.

Though unavailable at launch of the PC version, it's been confirmed this Flight Simulator Achievement list will be the same for the Xbox release when it arrives.

We also have lists for Flight Simulator airports and Flight Simulator planes, showing the differences between its many launch editions.
