Today Microsoft and third-party developers had assets and news to share about add-ons for Microsoft Flight Simulatorwhile an airport has been released.
We start with Microsoft itself and its partners at iniBuilds, which released a full series of tutorial videos for the brand new Antonov An-225 “Mriya” released last month. If operating the aircraft was confusing for you (and I wouldn’t blame you if it was), this should clear all of your doubts.
Incidentally, if you’d like to know more about the Antonov, I suggest you keep your eyes peeled on TechRaptor tomorrow, as we have some content you may find interesting coming.
Next, we get a release date of the Analog Bonanza by Black Square the upcoming aircraft in the “Steam Gauge Overhaul” series. According to Just Flight, it’ll come on March 9.
In case you missed the initial news, this add-on is designed to completely overhaul the interior and systems of the default Beechcraft Bonanza while still retaining the excellent default external model by Asobo.
We also get a small but lovely treat from Aerosoft and developer Jo Erlend Sund, who is working on the publisher’s rendition of Oslo Gardermoen Airport (ENGM) serving the capital of Norway.
As you can see in the video posted on the official forums, the airport will have animated piano players with sound.
Next, we take a look at a new trailer for Fly2High’s Daegu International Airport (RKTN) in South Korea, which is releasing soon on March 9.
New screenshots and a development update were provided by Pacific Islands Simulation about its upcoming Salt Lake City International Airport (KSLC) in the US.
“Folks we were hoping for late March release but we’ve decided to push back a bit on the timeline since we’ve received more info on latest RW airport work progress. The GA buildings/hangars – specifically, need updated textures to conform with changes in that area. Apart from that, we’ve added EV charging stations at all concourse ends, improved ground textures to reflect realistic-looking grunge on the tarmac (ie cracks, dirt, tire markings), etc. We also added Delta, Skywest, Southwest (and other) freight terminals south of Concourse A (East). The two deicing maintenance facilities at midfield and runway 34L end are now complete. We will continue adding interior items starting with the main terminal, but for now Chevron, Burger King, Beans & Brews, and Costa Vida get free advertisement for life.”
Last, but not least, JustSim released a brand new Rhodes International Airport “Diagoras” (LGRP) in Greece. While the developer had released a previous rendition of the airport, this has been made from scratch, and you can find it on Simmarket for $17.89 plus applicable VAT.
That being said, those who previously purchased the previous version of the aircraft, can grab this new rendition at a deep discount (approximately $6). Below you can find a ton of screenshots.
Microsoft Flight Simulator is currently available for PC, Xbox Series X|S, and Xbox Cloud Gaming, including Game Pass. If you’d like to learn more, you should stay tuned on TechRaptor as we host daily Microsoft Flight Simulator news to keep you updated on the many add-ons coming and released for the sim. We have also recently reviewed Orbx’s Oslo Gardermoen Airport.
