Microsoft Flight Simulator Embraer E175 early access

Third-party developers have delivered news about upcoming Microsoft Flight Simulator add-ons on top of a release of an aircraft.

Flight Sim Studio has released the much-discussed early access of its Embraer E175, which is now available on Aerosoft's store for €40.96 including applicable VAT. The aircraft will also launch on the official marketplace, but it'll be a while before that happens. 

The developer plans to also deliver the E170 within the same package at no additional cost, but the E190 and E195 will be sold as a separate package when they're ready.

It's worth mentioning again that this is early access, with a rather long development roadmap on the developer's official site. Before purchasing, you should keep in mind that this is not a final product and it'll take a while before it reaches the promised advanced level of simulation. 

Below you can take a look at the features and a few screenshots.
