Third-party developers shared news about Microsoft Flight Simulator add-ons today, including one aircraft and two different airports. 

We start with the Boeing 757 by Blue Bird Simulations, which received a new video focusing on showcasing performance landing in Miami, Atlanta, and Madrid. It's worth mentioning that the developer followed up with an update on Facebook mentioning that since the video was recorded, performance has been improved by about 30%.

As usual, sounds and textures are still placeholders. You can check out the video below.

Next, we get an announcement from Drzewiecki Design, which will release Everett Paine Field (KPAE) in the United States, well-known for being the site of one of Boeing's main assembly plants. Considering the quality of the developer's Renton airport, this is very promising. On top of that, Drzewiecki Design mentioned that KPAE will be "a step ahead" compared to its predecessor.

Below you can check out the first WIP screenshots.


Lastly, V1 Studio announced Embaixador Walther Moreira Salles Airport (SBPC), serving Poços de Caldas in Brazil. While this is a small general aviation airport, the trailer below makes it look very promising and scenic. 

Microsoft Flight Simulator is currently available for PC, Xbox Series X|S, and Xbox Cloud Gaming, including Game Pass. If you'd like to learn more, you should stay tuned on TechRaptor as we have daily Microsoft Flight Simulator news to keep you updated on the many add-ons coming and released for the sim. We have also recently interviewed Microsoft's Jorg Neumann about the Antonov An-225 "Mriya" and reviewed Orbx's Oslo Gardermoen Airport and RHDSimulations' Boeing 767-300ER
