Many Microsoft Flight Simulator fans are eagerly awaiting the Bombardier CRJ add-on by Aerosoft, and today the developer revealed another piece of the puzzle.
This time around we get a sample of volume 1 of the documentation that will be included with the add-on. If you’re wondering about the complexity of the aircraft, this is likely a good place to start evaluating.
You shouldn’t worry too much about spoilers, as you’ll have plenty to read when the CRJ package releases. It will include five volumes of documentation.
Incidentally, project manager Mathijs Kok mentioned that he recently assisted the good folks at Majestic Software get into the same level of access with Microsoft Flight Simulator’s developers as Aerosoft enjoys. This could mean that the development of Majestic’s excellent De Havilland Canada Dash 8 Q400 add-on for MSFS could receive an acceleration.
At the moment, the release date of the CRJ Package (which will initially include CRJ 550 and 700 and then expand with the 900 and 1000 versions) is still unknown, with “hopes” (but no promises) that it’ll come before the end of the year. At the moment, Aerosoft is waiting for Asobo to fix a few remaining issues before they can commit to a launch date..
Microsoft Flight Simulator is already available for Windows 10 and Steam and will release in summer 2021 for Xbox Series X ad Series S.
Speaking of Microsoft Flight Simulator in general, during a livestreamed event a few days ago, the developers shared a lot of details about the future of the sim, including the next world update focusing on the United Kingdom.
