Today third-party developers shared news about upcoming scenery add-ons for Microsoft Flight Simulator on top of a release. 

We start with Taxi2Gate, which revealed the first image of its Orlando International Airport (KMCO) in Florida, United States. Work on the airport was originally announced in February, just before the popular developer debuted on the simulator with its excellent rendition of Pointe-à-Pitre International Airport

Now we finally get to see the scenery, albeit we don't know when it'll actually be released. Incidentally. Taxi2Gate is also working on another massive airport, Paris Charles de Gaulle in France.

Next, FSimStudios released new screenshots of its Calgary Airport (CYYC) in Canada. We learn that it's approaching beta and it'll even include a bonus livery for the DC3 operated by Kenn Borek Air based in Calgary. The developer expects to release the add-on in 2-3 weeks. 

 

More screenshots have also been released by impulse Simulations showcasing Alice Springs Airport (YBAS) in Australia. According to the developer, the release is "just around the bend." If you're wondering why the airport features static Airbus A380s, it's because Alice Springs serves as one of the main storage facilities for mothballed airliners in the Asia Pacific region. 

 

Last, but not least, ColombiaVFR released Capurganá Airport (SKCA), a small but scenic airport on the Caribbean coast of Colombia. It's available on Simmarket for $20.08. 

Below you can check out a number of images.
