Today third-party developers revealed new assets of upcoming add-ons for Microsoft Flight Simulator, on top of releasing a new airport.

We start with the Fouga CM.170 Magister jet trainer by AzurPoly. The developer is working on the liveries while systems are being implemented. We also take a look at the electronic flight bag.

Freeware developer Ouroboros is back with a lovely render of two of the aircraft it’s working on, the Embraer E170 and the Phenom 100.

To follow the developer’s progress, you can check out its Discord server.

Next is Drzewiecki Design, which shared images of the control tower of Chicago Midway International Airport (KMDW) in the United States. The glass panels will include rain effects.

The same developer also showcased another look at Renton Municipal Airport (KRNT) also in the United States. This time around we take a look at the Ace Aviation facility.

Last, but not least, we go to Australia with Mackay Airport (YBMK) in North Queensland.

It has been released and is available on Orbx Direct for $16.15.

Here’s what you can expect:

  • Stunning 15cm aerial imagery covering the airport and the immediate surrounds
  • Painstakingly detailed rendition of Mackay Airport with ultra-high resolution textures
  • Custom ground poly detailing specific to Australian airports
  • Terraformed runways, drainage channels, taxiways and aprons to reflect the natural and man-made landscaping
  • Debut project from indie developer Rob Byrne
  • Use of realistic PBR detailing

Recently, we published our latest interview with head of Microsoft Flight Simulator Jorg Neumann and we heard more about Microsoft’s plans for the next few months, including World Update Australia.
