Today, third-party developers shared new images and news about the future Microsoft Flight Simulator additions, except for the release of a new airport.

We start with the McDonnell Douglas MD-11 by TFDi Design. CEO Collin Biedenkapp appeared on tonight’s episode the Closed Traffic podcast and shared new images of the aircraft in Microsoft Flight Simulator.

We can see the cockpit, cockpit and several avionics screens. Be aware that the textures look shiny, but that’s only because they’re under development and will be resolved during development. Screen images are missing the flight deck textures, so the frames look pink.

The plane is scheduled for release in September 2023 and will cost $70 for the base package (you can choose between passenger or cargo), plus $10 for the other version and $5 for the Extended Simulation Package.

Please note that the images below are compressed due to streaming on YouTube. We’ll replace them as soon as TFDi publishes live feed versions.

Next Orbx announced Bern Airport, designed by indie creator Massimiliano Addante. Although it serves the Swiss capital, it is actually quite a small airport with only a few seasonal scheduled flights and is mostly focused on general aviation, business and rescue operations.

The airport will soon have the following functions:

  • Detailed modeling
  • Custom ortho/projection grid
  • Static GA helicopters and airplanes
  • Clear 4k and 2k textures with PBR

Drzewiecki design released new screenshots his future Tallinn Airport (EETN) serves the capital of Estonia. The airport does not yet have a release date. By the way, we can also see a new static model for the Saab 340. Of course, it will be optional.

More screenshots have arrived Impulse modeling focusing on Alice Springs Airport (YBAS) in Australia. The developer hopes to release it soon.

Last but not least, Borneo Wonder Sceneries released Sandakan Airport (WBKS) in Malaysia. Although not a large airport, it is quite scenic and hosts a number of scheduled domestic flights operated by AirAsia and Malaysia Airlines.

Currently available at Simmarket for $11.63 plus applicable VAT.
