I am on a Mac, OS 10.12.1, and none of my F keys respond.  I cannot even get past the intro lesson for the Cesna 172 as it will not proceed until I use F2 and F3 to increase and decrease the throttle.  Have I overlooked something or is this a bug?

Hi there RiverMan,

Don't worry at all, this is not a bug at all, it's simply how the Mac uses it's interface. You can simply use the function key at the bottom left of your keyboard (has 'fn' printed on it) by pressing it down + pressing any of the top row function keys (e.g 'F1','F2'). Other than this, you're also able to go into your settings, then proceeding to click on keyboard and then clicking the bottom button stating 'Use all F1, F2 etc. keys as standard function keys' and will then be able to use all of the top row function keys as they'd normally work.

Have a flyin' high day
