You may recall Leonardo providing a brief update on their upcoming MD80 just a few days ago where they said the release was close, they weren’t kidding!
It has recently been spotted on their purchase page for the Maddog on their website that the FlytheMaddogX will be releasing on February 20th, or this coming Tuesday!
The Simmarket page has already gone up for the 64 bit edition of the product, priced at 70.00 euros, but it should be noted that it is not currently available to purchase, only available to add to your wishlist or notify you when its available.
I’d like to reiterate that the aircraft will be priced at 57 euros plus VAT for the 32 bit edition and 70 euros for the 64 bit edition, with a 5 euro discount being available for all customers throughout February! The team do plan on offering legacy owners 5 Euros off the 32-bit version (only), but it’s still being worked out, due to the various different stores that processed older orders. It’s been recommended to take advantage of the Feburary discount.
As for those wondering if you’ll be able to buy the 32-bit edition and then upgrade to the 64-bit version at a later date, right now, there are no plans to do so. As both versions are unique and offer varying features, it’s currently not planned. This may change in the future, but our advice would be to buy the version you intend to fly with the most in the future.
For those interested in the included liveries, a list of all the liveries can be found below!
We’ll be sure to let you know when the FlytheMaddogX releases, in the meantime feast your eyes on some screenshots of the aircraft in action!
