Third-party developers have shared news about additions to Microsoft Flight Simulator, including planes and scenery.

We start with new screenshots for Airbus A330 by Aerosoft shared by a beta tester P Astarte, showing off the tail in a variety of liveries. The plane doesn’t have a release date yet, but it shouldn’t be too far off.

Next we get an announcement of the Bell 222B helicopter Cowan simulation. It will appear soon, and we will see some screenshots of it.

Another announcement comes from Skyline simulations, which decided to work on remarkable landscapes on top of its airports. The first package will be Cincinnati, which is also coming soon.
