Third-party developers showcased new images of upcoming Microsoft Flight Simulator add-ons, while another has been announced. 

We start with SimWorks Studios, which provided an update for its Pilatus PC-12


We have finally completed the exterior model and its animations! The horizontal stabilizer now moves as you change elevator trim. When you get it in your hands, the knowledgeable of you will also spot the animated bypass door. The de-icing boots on the wings and tail have also been animated properly to inflate -that's a jab at the default TBM that has some “pieces” moving in and out of the wing.

On the coding and engine front, we have a fully functional electrical system. While some ironing out will be needed, the circuitry reacts like it should. The aircraft's coding has been stuck at the 80% mark, which brings it up to par with the Kodiak. Progress on that front is expected to pick up as soon as we are done with some final chores on the interior model of the aircraft.


We then get to see new screenshots of Stockholm Arlanda Airport (ESSA) by Orbx, serving the capital of Sweden. Terminal 2, which was the last terminal missing, is now complete.


Next, we hear from CloudSurf Asia Simulations, which showcased the upcoming Mactan-Cebu International (RPVM) Airport in the Philippines. The screenshots are still work-in-progress, but we get to see how the airport includes some landmarks of the nearby Cebu City. 

On top of that, the last few screenshots in the gallery show an upcoming update to the developer's excellent Singapore Airport (WSSS). 


Last, but not least, NZA Simulations announced "NZMF - Milford Sound Region" a new addon portraying the scenic airport surrounded by mountains in New Zealand. While no release date was announced, the developer mentioned that we're "getting close" and it's a "huge expansion pack."
