Microsoft Flight Simulator World Update 10 Released; Back in the USA

The next World Update is now out and brings us back to the USA with all-new high resolution detail.

The next World Update for Microsoft Flight Simulator has been released. The new free optional content pack goes back to the USA for another pass at improving the world, adding new cities and additional airports.

Microsoft said they wanted to go back to the USA since they have even more refined and high-resolution data that makes the US look even more realistic. The team has acquired all new elevation modelling, and high-resolution satellite and aerial imagery that brings the US to life. The new World Update also features triangulated irregular network (TIN) modeling of 12 urban regions including San Diego (California), Albany (New York), Key Largo (Florida), Seattle (Washington), Eugene (Oregon), and more.

As has been the case for the past World Updates, Gaya Simulations has provided an additional four handcrafted airports for the world update. These airports are Catalina Airport (KAVX), Alaska’s Valdez Airport (PAVD), Lake Tahoe Airport (KTVL), and Block Island State Airport (KBID).

There are also 87 new points of interest, three landing challenges, three discovery flights and three additional bush trips.

You can download World Update X: USA from the in-sim Marketplace free of charge. You will need to be on the latest version of the simulator in order to use the content.
