Microsoft Flight Simulator Texan 2 & Miramar Base

Third-party developers had quite a few news to share about Microsoft Flight Simulator add-ons, on top of a couple of scenery releases. 

We start with an announcement from Sundowners Simulation simulations, which announced Naval Air Station Miramar (KNKX).

The eagle-eyed among you likely noticed that I said "Naval Air Station" and not the current designation Marine Corps Air Station Miramar. That's because this is a reproduction of the base in the eighties, perfect for the F-14 Tomcat pilots out there who want to re-enact Top Gun. 

This is coming soon to both PC and Xbox. 


Next, Iris Simulations had to delay the release of the Beechcraft T-6 Texan II, but revealed the liveries that will be included at launch with the aircraft. At the moment, the developer is aiming for a launch in the upcoming weekend. 


We then get to see a trailer of Fly2High's upcoming Jacksonville International Airport (KJAX) in Florida, United States.

Moving on to releases, here's an interesting one from Cli4D, Philippines: A Tropical Adventure, which enriches the scenery of the northern top of the Philippines for the tourists among us.

It's currently available on Orbx Direct and Simmarket for $10.66, promising the following features.

  • Kilometers of rocky coastline
  • Mountain roads(tarmac and gravel)if you prefer driving
  • Lots of waterfalls and rivers.
  • Short grass landing strips
  • Beach Resorts
  • Tropical vegetation
  • Lots of helipads

Lastly, we get the release of Santo Ângelo Airport (SBNM) in Brazil by Onehundred Simulations. 

You can find it on Simmarket for $10.28 including the following features. 

  • All customized buildings and constructions
  • High quality PBR textures
  • Custom car models
  • Animations
  • Realistic airport layout
  • terraforming throughout the airport
  • Customized satellite images around the airport
