    Here's a couple of videos on Microsoft Flight Simulators. I've got almost everyone to work. As long as you install the patches correctly and you are running 8.1, you should have no problems. Best to have latest video drivers install as well.

    This one is from back when I was on 8.0

    Your original question was what Flight Simulators work on Windows 8.

    If you like what you see about MS Flight Simulator X, you can go buy it off of Amazon for about $25. Get the Gold Edition that includes the Acceleration Pack. There are hundreds, if not thousands of airplanes, scenery mods, etc, etc. out there for it.

    If you are concerned about it because it's not supported by Microsoft anymore, then look at one of the other flight sims that are currently in production.
