Third-party developers have released new add-ons for Microsoft Flight Simulator, including aircraft and scenery, and showcased new screenshots of another.
We start with the release of an F-5 Tiger II by Venom Zero Productions. It's worth mentioning that this isn't the same rendition of the aircraft coming from SC Design. It's a different project from a different developer.
It's available on Simmarket for $16.99. The developer mentions that it's "built for entertainment purposes only - Not designed for study-level simulation." It also claims the following features.
- outstanding external model with true-to-life liveries highlighting real-world operators

A second release comes from Prealsoft and it's a landmark add-on for Amsterdam. It comes at a convenient time to match the recent release of the airport by FlyTampa.

Last, but not least, we get new information about FlightSimExpo 2024, which will be hosted in Las Vegas between June 21 and June 23.
Not only do we get to take a look at the preliminary schedule (of course, most of the activities are still pending), but the organizers are also providing travel and hotel information, including discounts with several airlines.
That's it for today's news. As usual, here on TechRaptor, we publish daily Microsoft Flight Simulator news to let you know everything that happens in this lively and chaotic corner of the gaming industry.
