Today third-party developers announced a new aircraft coming to Microsoft Flight Simulator and released two new add-ons.

We start with iniBuilds, which announced the vintage luxury transport Spartan 7W Executive. Development is in the early stage, but we get to see the work-in-progress 3D model. 

The developer also teased upcoming news about new scenery and an update on the Airbus A300 in the next "few weeks."

Next is the release of the Analog Baron, from Black Square’s "Steam Gauge Overhaul" series. It'll launch on Thursday, March 23.

In case you missed the initial news, this kind of add-on is designed to completely overhaul the interior and systems of the default Beechcraft Baron G58 while still retaining the excellent default external model by Asobo. 

It's currently available on Just Flight's store for €30.95. A bundle with the Bonanza costs €54.95.

Last, but not least, Skydesigners continued its series of former French Air Force airbases, this time releasing Airbase 103 Cambrai-Épinoy (LFQI). 

The base, which hosted two squadrons of Mirage 2000s, was closed in 2017 and sold to the municipality for the symbolic price of €1 to the municipality. Interestingly, part of its taxiways has been used as streets for the nearby town. 

It's currently available on Simmarket for $16.18 plus applicable VAT. 

Earlier this week, Microsoft revealed their plans for World Update 13, which will be Oceania, and shared new details and footage about the upcoming ATR 42/72-600.

Microsoft Flight Simulator is currently available for PC, Xbox Series X|S, and Xbox Cloud Gaming, including Game Pass. If you'd like to learn more, you should stay tuned on TechRaptor as we have daily Microsoft Flight Simulator news to keep you updated on the many add-ons coming and released for the sim. We have also recently interviewed Microsoft's Jorg Neumann about the Antonov An-225 "Mriya" and reviewed Orbx's Oslo Gardermoen Airport and RHDSimulations' Boeing 767-300ER.
