Microsoft Flight Simulator Dassault Rafale

Today third-party developers had a few interesting reveals to share about upcoming Microsoft Flight Simulator add-ons, including aircraft and scenery.

We start with CJ Simulations, which many may know for the excellent Eurofighter Typhoon. The developer announced its next aircraft and we stay in a similar ream with the French multirole fighter Dassault Rafale. 

While no release details have been shared yet, we already got lots of screenshots, which you can enjoy below.


Next, we get a video of the freeware Airbus A380 by FlyByWire. Part of the video was showcased during FlightSimExpo, but today we get to see the full-length, full 4K-resolution version. It shows just how flexible the wings are thanks to some heavy turbulence and aggressive maneuvers. Do keep in mind that this is done to showcase the animation and you're not supposed to fly the A380 like this.

Last, but not least, FS Formosa showcased the landmarks that will come with its Penghu Airport (RCQC) in the country of Taiwan. We get to see the following:

  • Mudouyu Lighthouse
  • Penghu Great Bridge
  • Chamuyu Lighthouse
  • Xiying Rainbow Bridge
  • Tongpanyu Geopark

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 iniBuilds' CEO Ubaid Mussa on the work of the popular third-party developer. If you're interested in reviews, you can check out Orbx's Stockholm Arlanda and Oslo Gardermoen AirportsiniBuilds' New York-JFK Airport, and RHDSimulations' Boeing 767-300ER.
