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

We start a development update for Synaptic Simulations’ freeware Airbus A220.

Sorry for the long wait, but we’re back with some more progress for your viewing pleasure. In the last month, we’ve completely rebuilt our map from the bottom up around a new, more accurate map projection algorithm and the new terrain rendering program you guys got to see last month (credit @SparkyPotato [Z+5.5]). We’ve looked through literal hours of footage from the flight deck to make this as accurate as possible, and we’re incredibly proud of the results. Anyways, enjoy these fresh screenshots straight from the simulator!

Thanks for your immense support, and stay tuned for some more news regarding progress from our modeling team.

You can follow the progress of the aircraft’s development on the developer’s discord server.

Next is a trailer revealing Kajaani Airport (EFKI) in Finland by Ben Kleber. You can check out what you can expect below.

  • Custom CGL/Aerial imagery to replace the airfield and surrounding areas
  • All-PBR textures in high resolution, accurate and true-to-life representation of the terminal and the adjacent buildings
  • Custom airport clutter and interior detail (WIP to be implemented)
  • Ground polies, grime, dirt, decals
  • Custom cars/parking lot clutter

Last but not least, Impulse Simulations has revealed new images of the assets being worked on for Bendigo Airport (YBDG) inAustralia.
