Today third-party developers had news to share about add-ons for Microsoft Flight Simulator, including the release of a new airport.

We start with Shadescene, which announced another airport in Malaysia. It's Sultan Abdul Halim Airport (WMKA) serving Alor Setar. At the moment, we don't know when it'll release, but we get to see the first screenshots. 


Next, the developers of BeyondATC revealed an extensive video providing a demo of the add-on.It's basically a nearly full flight from Vancouver to Seattle showcasing the capability of the AI-driven air traffic control, from the request of the ATIS to landing.

While this is an IFR flight, the developer promised another video showing a VFR flight. That aspect of the add-on is still in development. 

Lastly, Wingsim continues in its mission to improve the airports of Colombia with La Loma Airport (SKLB). It's available on Simmarket for $7.98.
