You might need to go to the "Select Campaign" option at the top right of the main menu. From there you can select the Lylat Wars Campaign or the Training Missions.

Re: Star Fox: Event Horizon for FSO
I downloaded the last demo. I watched most of your videos about the game so I looked forward to play it. But then, I discovered that the game was only configured for QWERTY keyboards, and sadly, I use an AZERTY.
When I started the tutorial, I had no problem at first. "T" for target is the same no matter the keyboard so everything seemed okay. But then, when James asked to accelerate and I pressed "A", it didn't work, and it turned out that "Q" was the right button. Same for decelerating where "Z" turned out to be "W". And then, most confusing for me, there was the "M" that turned out to be the ",".
So I went to the options and understood that not only the game was configured for QWERTY, there was no way to configure it for AZERTY. I did attempt to change the buttons by myself but my brain quickly got confused by the letters not corresponding and it was a mess. It didn't help that I'm not usually a computer player and, at best, I play games only with the mouse or the direction arrows. And using a laptop, it's not like I can just buy a QWERTY to replace my current keyboard.
I understand that this is not your fault Undying. It's the guys behind Freespace 2 who didn't think that there are other keyboards than QWERTY. But isn't there a way to fix this problem? I really want to play SF:EH. :(

Normally press F2 and rebind using rebind controls.

It doesn't work. With the laptop I have, F2 is a shortcut to lower the volume.

But by rebind, you mean change the control by binding them to different buttons? That's what I tried, but it's a real mess. For example, with the AZERTY, when I bind something to the "A" button, it shows in the game that it is bound to the "Q" button (because, from QWERTY to AZERTY, "Q"="A"). If it had just been a few buttons like, for example, one to fire the bombs, one to boost, one to target and so on, it would have been alright. But there are dozens of controls some of which are rather complex, so it quickly becomes too confusing for me.

Re: Star Fox: Event Horizon for FSO
AZERTY and international keyboard layout support is in the works with the Controls6 branch in my repo, courtesy of another SCP dev.  Hopefully it'll be here Soon(TM), we've been continuously hitting speed bumps with Controls5 since the first business quarter this year so I can't give you a good time estimate of when it'll be available.

It can take a bit of work, but I recommend trying to remap the major bindings to something that's logical to you and get used to their physical position on the keyboard rather than try to rely on the letter (such as T for targeting).  For example, I usually put throttle controls along with lateral thrust and roll keys together in the Q, W, E columns of a QWERTY layout.

The controls you mostly use are your movement keys, weapon selection keys, energy management and transfer, shield balance and transfer, and only a handful of the many different targeting keys.  The comms menu to command your NPC wingmates is also important.

Targeting keys of note are: Cycle Targets,  Target Nearest Hostile, Target Nearest Bomb or Bomber, Cycle Subsystem, and Target Boresight.

We have returned to continue our purification of this galaxy. It is again your turn to be crushed beneath the great force that is the Antaran army. All your petty squabbling with the other beings in this galaxy is meaningless. The Antaran fleet will destroy you all, one by one. You may not surrender. You cannot win. Your only option is death.

This means you need to hold the 'Fn' key to use its F-counterpart.  So, Fn+F2 will do actual F2 instead the laptop shortcut.
