Microsoft Flight Simulator – Fenix Airbus A320 Shines in First Video; Twin Otter Gets New Screenshots; Saint Lucia Airport Released

Today third-party developers shared more assets about upcoming add-ons for Microsoft Flight Simulator, alongside a new release.

Today third-party developers shared more assets about upcoming add-ons for Microsoft Flight Simulator, alongside a new release.

First of all, we get the first video of the recently-announced Airbus A320 by Fenix Simulation. We get to see an approach at Sidney and an Autoland procedure.

Do keep in mind that sound isn’t recorded as it’s not ready for prime time yet.

A screenshot shared on the developer’s Discord shows the TCAS system in action, as it can actually fly the aircraft automatically out of harm’s way in case of an imminent collision.

Next comes Aerosoft, with more images of the de Havilland Canada DHC-6 Twin Otter‘s para jumping version and its rather aggressive livery, on top of the flight deck.

Speaking of Aerosoft, we also heard that the Bombardier CRJ 1000 & 900 package will now be released after the Sim Update on July 27, which will give the developer more time to work on icing.

We then get two teaser videos by FlyByWire showing upcoming features of their A32NX. Specifically, we can take a look at the TCAS alert in action and the enhanced LCD screens that will show detail down to the pixel.

Speaking of airports, Gate15Scenery showcased another early look at its Nanki–Shirahama Airport (RJBD) in Japan, which will have a modeled terminal interior.

We also heard from AUScene, which announced Lord Howe Island Airport (YLHI) and provided a single screenshot of the super-scenic location off the coast of mainland Australia.

The developer also promised updates this week about Ballina Byron Gateway Airport (YBNA) in New South Wales, which is close to release, on top of Hamilton Island airport (YBHM).

Last, but not least, FSDG released Hewanorra International Airport (TLPL) in Saint Lucia in the Caribbean.

It’s available at the developer’s own store for €14,28. Below you can read an official features list and check out a few screenshots.

  • Accurate and detailed rendition of Hewanorra International Airport, St Lucia (TLPL)
  •  Additional landmarks and objects around the airport
  •  Includes static ship and aircraft for even more authenticity
  •  Latest MSFS technologies like dynamic lights or ground materials
  •  Optimized for great performance and visual quality
  •  Compatible with all known addons

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 heard more about the Xbox version of the simulator and we saw some impressive performance upgrades for the PC version which will come at the same time.
