Microsoft Flight Simulator Airbus A330

Third-party developers have provided news about Microsoft Flight Simulator add-ons, and a lot of it is about Airbus A330s. 

We start with Aerosoft, which announced via project manager Mathijs Kok that its next payware airliner will be the Airbus A330neo. We also get to see new screenshots of the upcoming Airbus A330ceo via beta tester BaxterChico. Do keep in mind that there appears to be a lot of post-production filtering going on here. 


On the other end of the spectrum, Headwind Simulations, which is currently offering a work-in-progress freeware A330neo announced a collaboration with Project Mega Pack on its Discord Server. The developer will take over PMP's old A330ceo and will overhaul it and incorporate it into its lineup. 

Both the A330ceo and the A330neo will be getting a cockpit overhaul, planned to be launched simultaneously, while the A330ceo will get a new fuselage and wings. QBit Simulations will also participate by providing engine enhancements. 


One more interesting piece of news comes from Burning Blue Design, which revealed Compton Abbas (EGHA) in the UK with the first screenshots.
