Today third-party developers shared new images showing upcoming add-ons for Microsoft Flight Simulator, while a couple of airports have been released. 

We start with Salt Lake City International Airport (KSLC), which received new screenshots from its developer Pacific Islands Simulation. The aircraft is getting close to release with recent work done on ground markings, taxiway numbers, GA and Military sides of the field, taxiway lights, and interior.

Next, we hear from SimWorks Studios that has completed and refined the external model of its Pilatus PC-12. Production has been delayed by the fact that the developer had extensive access to the real aircraft, so they're doing their best to do it justice. They're currently working on the EFIS50 avionics and flight model, which is "shaping up nicely."

Moving on to releases, Orbx launched Chester Airport (KSNC) in Connecticut, United States. It's currently available on Orbx Direct for $9.69. 

The airport comes with the following.

  • Custom groundpoly with sloped runway & taxiways
  • Conditional display of objects according to weather or time-of-day
  • 4k textures with PBR
  • Developed by Matteo Veneziani

Next, PAF Captain Guillermo Concha Iberico International Airport (SPUR) in Peru has been released by XSimulations. It's a smaller airport in the north-west of the country serving the city of Piura. Despite the relatively small size, it still hosts a handful of scheduled airline flights and squadrons of the local air force.

It's currently available on Simmarket for $8.54 plus applicable VAT. 

Below you can take a look at a trailer.

Microsoft Flight Simulator is currently available for PC, Xbox Series X|S, and Xbox Cloud Gaming, including Game Pass.
