Today Microsoft Flight Simulator developers had a relevant release and some announcements in store.

We start with FlyingIron Simulations, which released its F6F HELLCAT.

This legendary WWII warbird is available from the developer store for $30.75.

Below you can see what you can expect.

  • Beautiful 3D artwork, lovingly crafted over 6 months to capture every detail of the real airframe.
  • Wwise professional 3D sound design, using professionally captured audio recordings from a genuine F6F Hellcat & R-2800 Double Wasp engine
  • Ultra-realistic flight model, extensively tested and validated by real-world pilots with Warbird flight experience.
  • Extensive and realistic modeling of all aircraft engine and cockpit systems – pilots must fly real-world techniques and procedures to get the most out of the simulation
  • Extensive custom modeling integration that overrides the default MSFS behavior – Thermodynamics (heat and cooling modeling), ground handling, engine damage, water injection and much more
  • Full FlyingIron UI tablet integration, with saveable user customization options, settings, basic maintenance and live aircraft reporting
  • Detailed engine damage modeling (optional)
  • The collimated viewfinder can be replaced by the integrated GNS530 GPS
  • Complete user manual, complete with a large amount of reference tables, graphs and procedures

Next, Impulse Simulations announced another airport in Australia, and that’s Alice Springs (YBAS).

Although not a massive hub, it has relevant regional traffic and is well known for being used as a storage facility for idle aircraft.

This one is still a long way from release, but you can check out some screenshots in progress below.

Finally, Simnord announced Herning Airport (EKHG) in Denmark. This is a fairly small general aviation and glider airfield.

It is already complete and it has been submitted to Microsoft for release in the official market. No release date has been announced.
