Third-party developers are continuing their quest to enrich the world of Microsoft Flight Simulator with new scenery and aircraft add-ons.

First of all, today we get two releases.

Orbx launched Samedan Airport (LSZS) in Switzerland. You can purchase it on the publisher’s own store for $14.

Here’s what you can expect from the package:

  • Completely new version of the bestseller
  • Located in the south east of Switzerland
  • Full PBR UHD texturing
  • Incredibly detailed, high definition rendition of Samedan Airport
  • Scenic mountain landscape with glaciers, lakes and rivers all make stunning visual approaches
  • Realistic HD textures created from on-site photography to provide the most immersive experience possible
  • Includes the villages of Samedan and St. Moritz with many custom hotels and churches – perfect for the VFR fliers
  • By Andreas Hegi

Next is Aerosoft, who released Alta (ENAT) in Norway by Stairport. It’s now available at Aerosoft’s store for €18.40.

  • Realistic recreation of Alta Airport (ENAT, ALF)
  • All airport buildings included in high detail
  • Models and textures based on photos taken at the airport
  • Created using optimal modelling and texturing techniques for optimal performance and visuals
  • PBR materials for objects and ground
  • Custom flag animations
  • Realistic HDR night time lighting
  • Custom approach and runway lights including lead in lights for RWY29
  • Terminal interior included
  • Custom static aircraft placed randomly
  • Large coverage of custom photo scenery

Stairport and Aerosoft also had an announcement to share today. They’re working on the scenic Perranporth Airfield (EGTP) in Cornwall, UK.

You can find a few screenshots below.

Last, but not least, is Aeroplane Heaven, who shared some interesting pictures of the P-51D Mustang’s cockpit.

What you’re looking at are the optional AS3x and AS1000 units.

“Completely optional, AS3x will have a working autopilot (stock functionality ), the AS1000 is a big unit so it won’t have the autopilot ( is being used for a larger classic airplane which will have an AP ). And yes we’ve got something else planned for people who want to keep it the full vintage 40’s experience.”

Recently, we published our massive interview with head of Microsoft Flight Simulator Jorg Neumann, who provided a lot of new info about the present and future of the sim. A few days ago, we also got to hear more, including a trailer for World Update 4 which will feature France and Benelux.
