Microsoft Flight Simulator Lockheed Electra 10-A & Batumi Airport Announced; Hawk T1 & F-104 Get New Screenshots & Video

Third-party developers had a few announcements and updates to share about upcoming add-ons for Microsoft Flight Simulator.

Third-party developers had a few announcements and updates to share about upcoming add-ons for Microsoft Flight Simulator.

First of all, we learn that Aeroplane Heaven is working on a Lockheed Electra 10-A, which apparently is coming “really soon.”

No further details were shared, but we got some really neat screenshots of this classic airliner from the roaring thirties.

Next comes Amsim, which announced Batumi International Airport (UGSB) in Georgia.

While it’s not a massive airport, it still hosts many scheduled flights (including plenty of seasonal ones) and actually serves two countries due to its location close to the border with Turkey.

You can see a trailer below.

Just Flight released new images of its upcoming Hawk T1/A Advanced Trainer, alongside a detailed explanation of what they showcase.

  • EFB tablet with controls for selecting between T1, T1/A and Red Arrows configurations, different payloads and autopilot modes for ease-of-use
  • Different cockpit configurations – T1/A weapons training (pylon/sidewinder) controls, gunsight and/or GPS, Red Arrows smoke indicators
  • VHF, UHF, IFF, TACAN and ILS radio simulation, including frequency preset cards which update in real-time to show any saved frequency presets
  • Dynamic cockpit night lighting with dimmer controls and spotlights, and realistic exterior lighting (including independent upper/lower strobes or beacons)
  • Exterior model payloads/configurations – Live or training AIM-9 Sidewinders, 30 mm Aden gun, CBLS practice bombs, MATRA rockets, Red Arrows smoke tank and exhaust pipes

Last, but not least, Sim Skunk Works, showcased a video of its upcoming TF-104G Starfighter showing its interaction with the BAK-12 arrestor cable on landing.

Recently, we published our massive interview with head of Microsoft Flight Simulator Jorg Neumann, focusing on the Xbox version and short and long-term plans for the sim (on both platforms).
