Today, Microsoft and third-party developers shared news about Microsoft Flight Simulator and its add-ons, including both aircraft and scenery.
First of all, Microsoft released the beta of the update 220.127.116.11, which is the previously-announced “Aircraft and Avionic Update 1” that will be officially released in January.
The update brings massive changes developed by Working Title for the GNS 430W and GNS 530W, the Garmin G3000 and Garmin G5000, the Cessna Citation CJ4, and the Cessna Citation Longitude. The Daher TBM 930 also got a slightly smaller but very welcome update.
You can find the full patch notes here and keep in mind that this is a beta, so you need to opt-in at your own risk to download it.
Aerosoft released new screenshots of the Airbus A330 and more precisely the payload and performance pages of the EFB tablet showing Simbrief and weather data import, center of gravity calculation, and the overview.
This time around, we get to see the snow coverage that appears to have been improved by latest beta update of the simulator according to Jo Erlend. That’s definitely good considering that it used to be a major flaw of the simulator and snow coverage is definitely important in Norway. We also get to see the custom runway lights.
Microsoft Flight Simulator is currently available for PC (Windows 10 and Steam), and Xbox Series X|S. If you want to read more about it, you can check out our review.
