Today, Microsoft released a major update for Microsoft Flight Simulator, while third-party developers had news to share about their addons.

We kicked off with the release of Aircraft & Avionics Update 1 for the simulator, which came out of beta testing and went live just in time for its announced January release. It is numbered and it comes with some cool changes.

Basically it reviews the avionics and systems of the Cessna Citation CJ4, Cessna Citation Longitude, Daher TBM 930 on top of the Garmin GNS 430W, GNS 530W, G3000 and G5000 to bring them much closer to reality in basically every way which it allows for a level of system complexity that is basically unrivaled among the default aircraft in any flight simulator on the market.

The update is already available and you can download it now. You also can Read the full patch notes here..

Next, BlueBird Simulations released a new video of the upcoming Boeing 757 via one of their technical advisors, the YouTube user. eviador. The video offers a look at some of the details of the aircraft, along with some interesting information that many may not be aware of.


Next, sinord released some new screenshots at its Copenhagen Airport, Kastrup (EKCH) in Denmark. This time, we can see Finger A and the adjacent buildings, which are “largely finished.” This developer certainly has the guts to compete with the existing version of FlyTampa, but the competition is certainly good.

You can see the progress below.

Moving on to something completely different, waterfront simulations announced another addition to its growing ships series, this time focused on Madeira and the nearby island of Port Santo. The package promises “150 ships that travel along the coasts, cargo transportation, complete marinas, typical colorful fishing boats and moving cruise ships that can land.”
