A relevant third-party aircraft has been released for Microsoft Flight Simulator, while other developers have shared new assets.

First of all, the much-anticipated de Havilland Canada DHC-6 Twin Otter has been released by Aerosoft.

It can be purchased on the developer’s own store for €36.54 including applicable VAT. If you want to know how good it is, tomorrow we’ll post our review, but I’ll spoil it a bit and mention that it’s very good.

    • Highly optimized modelling, prepared for use on PC and Xbox
