Today third-party developers had plenty of news to share about add-ons for Microsoft Flight Simulator.

Recommended Videos

We start with Qbit, which released another video focusing on showcasing the progress done on its freeware Boeing 737-800 for Microsoft Flight Simulator.

This time around, we take a look at the flight deck, and more precisely the work done on the avionics.

If you want to follow the project’s progress, you can find Qbit at the dedicated Discord server.

Next, Aerosoft released new images of its progress on the Airbus A330, including a look at the landing gear bays and the EFB, which features SimBrief integration.

MilViz continues with the teasing, releasing another screenshot of the cockpit of its Cessna 310 which should be releasing soon..

MT Scenery Design released more screenshots of its Coventry Airport (EGBE) in the UK.

We also get an announcement from GearDown Simulations, which revealed that modeling of the executive airport São Paulo Catarina (SBJH) in Brazil is in its final phase.

Moving on to releases, DC Designs launched its much-anticipated Concorde.

It’s available on Just Flight’s store for €34.95. Below you can see and read what you can expect.

Cockpit

  • Truly 3D flight deck featuring virtually every switch, dial, knob and gauge from the real Concorde
  • Instruments constructed in 3D with smooth animations
  • Fully modelled forward passenger cabin with working doors and custom passenger sounds
  • Interactive points for Ground Crew operations such as jetway, fuel truck, power truck, baggage loading and catering truck
  • Crew figures in the virtual cockpit are coded to disappear when you occupy their seats

Aircraft systems

  • 3D modelled dials, ADI, ‘whiskey’ compass and other high-detail instruments designed to emulate the appearance of the real Concorde
  • Fully operational fuel transfer and Centre of Gravity balance system, with all 138 lines, 64 pumps and 38 valves correctly represented
  • Fully automated fuel transfer system for those who prefer a simpler life
  • Weather radar, fully functional Flight Management Computer (CIVA INS will follow when Xbox can support the required gauges)
  • Highly realistic flight model – Concorde will only reach Mach 2 and 60,000ft, efficiently enough to reach her destination, if flown correctly
  • A full operations manual is included in the software and can also be downloaded here.

Liveries

  • British Airways 1985-1987
  • British Airways 1997-2003
  • Air France 1976-2003
  • Singapore Airlines G-BOAD

Last, but not least, Zhouke Scenery Studio released a city scenery pack for Changsha in China, following the launch of the airport a few days ago.

You can purchase it on SimMarket for $11 plus applicable VAT.

Proud weeb hailing from sunny (not as much as people think) Italy and long-standing gamer since the age of Mattel Intellivision and Sinclair ZX Spectrum. Definitely a multi-platform gamer, he still holds the old dear PC nearest to his heart, while not disregarding any console on the market. RPGs (of any nationality), MMORPGs, and visual novels are his daily bread, but he enjoys almost every other genre, prominently racing simulators, action and sandbox games. He is also one of the few surviving fans on Earth of the flight simulator genre.
