Leonardo Softhouse Releasing Fly the Maddog X for MSFS Update in a Few Days

Stefano from the Leonardo Softhouse team has taken to their forums to share the news that a new update for the Fly the Maddog X will be released on December 23rd.

The full changelog is down below, but the new free update continues to close the gap between the MSFS and P3D versions even more. For example, this new update allows users to now choose the Canadian Marconi with PMS navigation system as an alternative to the classic Honeywell FMS suite.

In addition to the new features, there have been plenty of bug-fixing happening too. Issues with CPDLC not working have been resolved, along with FMS procedures with consecutive DME arcs have now been fixed. The full changelog is below.

This new update will be free of charge for all customers and can be picked up as of December 23rd 2022.

The Fly the Maddog X for Microsoft Flight Simulator is a recreation of the MD-80 and comes with a range of features to make this an immersive and high-fidelity experience. You can buy it from SIMMARKET for €75.00.
