Microsoft Releases Sim Update 13

Microsoft has released Sim Update 13 for Microsoft Flight Simulator 2020, which includes many changes, bug fixes and improvements, and community requested fixes. The main focus for this Sim Update was many small fixes and changes to many facets of the simulator.

The main volume of changes came for the 747-8 and 787-10, which both have received fixes to their avionics by Working Title.
