New Developer Cockspur is Bringing Aeroprakt A22 Foxbat to MSFS

A few days ago, we were contacted by an all-new developed called Cockspur who introduced us to what they have been working hard on for Microsoft Flight Simulator. The team has been working quietly in the background on the next ultralight aircraft for the simulator; an Aeroprakt A22 Foxbat.

This ultralight was first produced in 1996 by Ukrainian manufacturer Aeroprakt. It uses a Rotax 912ULS 4-cylinder air-cooled horizontally-opposed piston engine to carry one passenger at speeds of over 100mph. One of the most impressive aspects of the A22 Foxbat is the range of 680nmi. The aircraft weighs just 260kg (empty) and is put together from a kit of 152 pieces.

In the simulator, you won’t have to spend hours putting it together, and instead, you can simply just take off and fly. Cockspur has worked to include a number of features to make the aircraft somewhat unique when it is released. There are different external options such as with or without wheel fairings and some of the instrumentation. All of these changes can be done via the in-sim phone you’ll find in the cockpit of the A22 Foxbat. The flight dynamics are also on par with the real thing, making for an exciting, fun and delicate ultralight to fly in Microsoft Flight Simulator.

Whilst the team are brand new on the scene, the developers actually have plenty of experience in the field. “We are a new team but we all have experience from sim-dev, having worked for different companies in the past,” Seb from Cockspur told us.

The plan is to release The Aeroprakt A22 Foxbat for Microsoft Flight Simulator this week for a price of €14.99. After that, and once approved, Cockspur want to have the plane on the in-sim Marketplace.

Finally, the team confirmed to us that they are looking to add a float-variant which will be added at a later date as a free update.

As usual, we’ll keep you updated with the latest information. If you want to get in touch or follow the team, you can do so on their Discord or on their Facebook page.
