Third-party developers had new reveals to make about upcoming scenery for Microsoft Flight Simulator.

Carenado announced another classic aircraft, and it’s the oldie but goldie Cessna 170B, dating all the way back to 1952. It’s basically the granddaddy of modern Cessnas.

At the moment, there is no information about a release date and pricing, but usually Carenado makes its announcements quite close to launch.

In the meanwhile, we can see quite a few screenshots.

Next is Gaya Simulations that provided a look at its Block Island State Airport (KBUID) in the United States. As a matter of fact it’s the first payware airport by Gaya in the US.

“We are extremely thrilled to share with you a preview of our very first destination in the USA. Located in North-East USA close to the Rhode Island coast.

It’s all in the details! – We have lovingly recreated this airport and surroundings in high detail with a custom-made PBR ground-poly (“projected mesh”), detailed and accurate static aircraft, animated local ground service cars, accurate USA-type roads around the island and much much more!”

Last, but not least, it’s Gate15Scenery, which is working on Okegawa Airfield (RJT1). Today we take a look at the Teruru Okegawa Sports Land racing track near the airfield.

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 received lots of new details about upcoming content from Microsoft itself including a new aircraft and the next world update focused on Nordic countries.
