Back in February, newcomer developer BlueBird Simulations announced they would be developing a Boeing 757 for Microsoft Flight Simulator. It has been a few months since then and now we have further previews of the aircraft within the simulator.
Over on the Just Flight Facebook page, a series of new previews were shared of the 757’s cockpit were shared. These new previews give a small indication on progress on the displays and also some other parts of the cockpit. This includes the texturing and materials on areas such as the seats and panels.
In addition, a few external previews from within the sim were also shown off.
It’s worth remembering these are still very early screenshots as the aircraft isn’t due to release until the first half of 2023. Despite this, both Just Flight and BlueBird Simulations have promised regular updates all the way up until release.
BlueBird has noted in the past that the 757 will be a “mid-level complexity aircraft which will be more complex than the default airliners.” From a system’s perspective, the 757 will be a significant jump forward while still making the 757 accessible to simmers of all skill levels. More exact information on system depth will be released at a later date. An authentic Boeing 757 flight deck experience is the goal.
While the aircraft is relatively in an early stage of development, BlueBird is looking to release the 757 in the first half of 2023. No indication of pricing was disclosed. Stay tuned to FSElite for more information on the Boeing 757 as it becomes available.
