Next, we move on to upcoming aircraft. Aerosoft released new images of the Bombardier CRJ 900, which will be offered as a further add-on to the excellent CRJ 550/700 package alongside the CRJ 1000 variant.
This time around we see the Air Canada Express and Lufthansa Cityline liveries.
Next is DC Designs, providing another look at the Boeing-Stearman Model 75 and even a screenshot of Concorde. The glorious supersonic airliner will undergo a major rebuild to bring it up to Microsoft Flight Simulator’s standard, which will start around June or July.
“The turbocharged Arrow III and IV offer greater performance than the existing normally-aspirated Arrow III, and arguably sportier looks thanks to the sleek engine cowling and T-tail. The finishing touches are being made to the flight dynamics, engine sounds and custom code – including engine damage simulation if you abuse that turbocharger too much!”
Recently, we published our massive interview with head of Microsoft Flight Simulator Jorg Neumann, who provided a lot of new info about the present and future of the sim. Yesterday we also received lots of new details about upcoming content including two new aircraft and a world update focused on Nordic countries.
