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.
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.
