Third-party developers have released new assets and details about two upcoming aircraft for Microsoft Flight Simulator.

We start with Just Flight, which released new images of the Hawk T1/A Advanced Trainer, showing both the exterior in different liveries and the cockpit.

  • 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

FlightSimGames also released new work-in-progress videos showcasing further tests of its Pilatus Porter PC-6, focusing on the cockpit, while on the official forums they shared two images of the throttle pedestal.

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).
