We already know that Aerosoft is developing a range of add-on product for Microsoft Flight Simulator, including aircraft and scenery. The latest round of previews from the team highlight Cologne-Bonn that is soon coming to the simulator.

In a short forum post by Mathijs Kok on the Aerosoft forums, four new previews of the product in action were shared. The new previews show off areas of the terminal building, ground clutter and other elements of the product.

The airport product is “not far from release” according to the post, so as always, we’ll keep you updated with any release information. Be sure to check out details on Aerosoft’s last airport release for Microsoft Flight Simulator; Trondheim Airport.

In this video, I give my review of the P3D v4 version of LatinVFR’s Hartford Bradley International Airport KBDL. We will be taking a look at the building and ground modeling and textures, included SODE features, seasonal variation, and more.

Don’t forget to subscribe to the FSElite YouTube channel for additional reviews and other content!

Overall Summary
Hartford Bradley will mostly appeal to those looking for domestic US commercial flight operations with occasional niche international flights. While modeling and texturing in the primary use area (in this case the main terminal) is general well done, other buildings and parts of the airport feel overlooked or rushed. The airport performs well but has a large list of small annoyances that build up to detract from the overall experience. If the missing structures could be added and have fixes made to the taxiways, runways, and ramp markings and their interactions with imagery, the product would be significantly improved
  • Incorrect or missing ground markings
  • Odd appearance going from paved surfaces to imagery
  • Missing structures or objects
  • Repetitive or stop-start nature of SODE weather effects
  • Divisive line cutting down entire length of coverage area and through the airport

Microsoft Flight Simulator: The FSElite Review

Microsoft Flight Simulator Review Fselite COVER
In all my current time with flight simulation, and in particular, being within the media side of things, I had never thought I would be writing a review for a new Microsoft Flight Simulator platform. The series that was left behind when the Aces team was closed down seemingly held on to life for years thanks to a huge amount

Jennasoft London Gatwick (EGKK): The FSElite Review

Jennasoft Gatwick Airport Review Featuredjpg
Gatwick has been a constant throughout my flightsim ‘career’. I remember many years ago that it was one of, if not, the first payware airports that I purchased. I recall finding the go-around procedure particularly interesting having seen real-world operators executing that hard left or right turn heading 179 degrees climbing to 3000ft. Not only this, but I recognised this
