There’s no denying that Microsoft Flight Simulator provides a great visual experience, even at low altitudes. However, whilst some developers have been able to bring a great number of smaller aircraft to the simulator, one prominent developer has been sadly missing from talks of bringing their content to the new simulator. That developer is A2A Simulations. However, that looks to change now as the team has made progress with their tools to be able to now bring their products to the new platform.
Over on the A2A Simulations forums, Scott Gentile (CEO and Owner) made a post detailing how progress with the sim is now looking positive. After a long development process, Scott said, “as of yesterday, thanks to our brilliant Michal Krawczyk and Mark Smith, we appear to be out of the woods with Accu-Sim and MSFS2020.” He went on to say that he did some test flights with an all-new Accu-Sim Comanche 250 in the simulator. “Today for the first time, I took off and performed a bunch of maneuvers in the air, came back with a nice flare and landed in an all-new Accu-Sim Comanche 250. “
He went onto say that “all major road-blocks are cleared” before then confirming that the team can now properly plan for Microsoft Flight Simulator development. A2A Simulations has chosen to bring the Comanche 250 as their first aircraft for the platform as “[they] know the it so well.” Whilst development for the first aircraft will take longer, Scott confirmed this is due to new technology, systems and physics all being made for the aircraft in the modern platform. In even more exciting news, Scott said that a spell of US military work has meant that A2A also has Accu-Sim turboprop and turbojet already on the shelf that can be used for any future aircraft products.
This is a huge piece of news and will certainly be exciting to follow in the future.
