COWS Announces Release Date for Upcoming DA42

COWS, the new studio behind a new Diamond DA42 add-on for MSFS, has announced their virtual rendition of the popular twin GA trainer will be available from February 10.

The plane, which is being developed by a team of flight school students who fly the plane in the real world, will release for Microsoft Flight Simulator in just under 2 weeks with Orbx as the studio’s distributor.

Additionally, the team confirmed that not only will customers be getting the -VI variant, but also the more popular -TDI variant, which is used widely around the world by flight schools preparing students for their MPL rating. The team has also confirmed to FSElite that the plane will be coming to Xbox users through the MSFS Marketplace, although a release date for console has not yet been confirmed.

Finally, although no details were given, the statement containing the release information made by team member Mitchell also alluded to future development of the Diamond DA40-180 XLS, which the team is aspiring to have out by the end of this year “if time allows”.

FSElite will bring you more information on the project including its release when we get it.
