Parallel 42 Releases Hogsback Ranch for MSFS

Parallel 42 is back with another release for Microsoft Flight Simulator. Bush fliers will be able to explore a private airstrip scenery in Tehama County, California named Hogsback Ranch (42HB).

According to the product page, Hogsback Ranch for Microsoft Flight Simulator is “nestled in the heart of nature, the ranch offers breathtaking views and unparalleled privacy.” You will find many buildings, ranches, swimming pools and more in this scenery package.

You can explore the area with aircraft or helicopters as there is space for both. You will be able to find parking, several amenities, and also a hangar where there is a functional hydraulic door. There’s a challenging approach as well for those looking to test their skills. Custom night lighting is also a part of the package, along with custom vegetation, objects and animated windsock.

You can pick up Parallel 42’s Hogsback Ranch for Microsoft Flight Simulator through Orbx for around $10.00 USD.
