Although some gameplay has surfaced (which has now been removed) and a few trailers, it's not quite the same as experiencing it yourself.
So when can gamers play Microsoft Flight Simulator 2020?
When Is The Microsoft Flight Simulator 2020 Demo?
Currently, there is no available beta or demo and plans are yet to be detailed.
However, some players received the Alpha Version as part of the game's Insider Program.
The game is set to release on PC and Xbox One, so we have to assume that (assuming the Xbox Series X does not get delayed) that it will release with or shortly after launch.

Microsoft Flight Simulator 2020 Alpha And Beta
An hour of gameplay from the Alpha was previously leaked onto YouTube but has since been taken down.
The footage depicted a calming flight amidst clouds that eventually turned to a rainy storm.
As we said before, the game is launching on PC and Xbox One, so we have to assume the game will launch before the 2020 holidays.
If there is to be a beta, we must assume it will come before October/November of this year.
Signups have already been taken for both the alpha and beta via the Flight Simulator Insider Program, but no further details have been revealed.
