FSElite Exclusive: Interview with Orbx about their Optica for Microsoft Flight Simulator

ORBX Interview

Orbx is very close to releasing their first-ever aircraft for Microsoft Flight Simulator and we were lucky enough to get some time with Orbx to talk all about the upcoming release. If you haven’t already seen, Orbx will soon be releasing the Edgley Optica for the simulator and it promised to be a unique experience that provides simmers the chance to see the world very low and very slow.

In our exclusive interview with Ellise, Business Development Manager, we dig into some of the finer details about the plane, how it came to be and some tips and tricks for when you take flight in the aircraft.

The EA-7 Edgley Optica is coming very soon to Microsoft Flight Simulator. Stay tuned to FSElite and Orbx to find out when you can get your hands on it.

This is a truly unique aircraft with only a small number of real-world units in existence. What made you decide to want to bring the Edgley Optica to Microsoft Flight Simulator?

For us, it was a clear choice! We wanted our first aircraft to complement our existing Microsoft Flight Simulator product suite. The expansive cockpit views and 8 hours of flight time let us really take in the wonders of the world with an amazing view. The Optica is a simple aircraft to fly; from starting her up to shutting her down. We were looking for exactly this kind of aircraft for those who like to take in the details of the scenery.
