Microsoft and third-party developers released new add-ons for Microsoft Flight Simulator, while a couple more have been teased.
Perhaps the most exciting release comes from Aerosoft and its partner developer Sim Wings, that surprise-launched Anchorage Ted Stevens International Airport (PANC) in the United States.
You can purchase it at Aerosoft’s own store for €23.53 including VAT. It even comes with the nearby LakeB Hood floatplane base.
- Includes a highly accurate recreation of Anchorage Airport (ANC, PANC)
- Highly detailed models with high resolution textures
- Custom jetways with correct number variations for each terminal pier
- A lot of ground clutter and service equipment at aircraft stands and parkings
- Up to date runway, taxiway, apron and stands layout
- Custom and accurate taxiway signage
- Custom aerial image covering the airport boundary and surrounding area including Lake Hood
- Accurate terrain elevation and runway profiles
- Realistic night time dynamic lighting
- Terminal interior for national and international terminal
- Includes scenery of Lake Hood float plane base
Microsoft itself released the latest aircraft of the Local Legends series, the Italian-built Savoia-Marchetti S.55.
It’s available exclusively on the official marketplace for a very affordable $14.99.
We also get a release from Flight Replicas, and it’s the L-4 Grasshopper.
You can find it at the developer’s own store for $15.99.
Then we move on to a couple of teases. Orbx posted a single image of what definitely appears a new city pack portraying Melbourne.
We also get a tease from Cockspur, which showcased the overhead panel of a new project in development. While the aircraft wasn’t officially named, the panel definitely belongs to a Hawker 800XP (thanks tiMOTHY and dont eat my sandwich for the help identifying this one).
