Developer SimWorks Studios shared a progress post on their Facebook page a few days ago, highlighting updates and bug fixes to their Van’s Aircraft RV-14 and progress on their Amphibian Kodiak which mentioned only a small number of issues needed to be fixed along with SU10 testing, but the main focus of the post was on their highly anticipated de Havilland Dash 7.
SimWorks de Havilland Dash 7 for Microsoft Flight Simulator is currently being developed in partnership with PILOT’S, with the announcement coming earlier this year. The team have announced that they are fully focused on the development of the Dash 7 and that they are currently working on adding decals, rivets, panel lines and dirt and grime to the exterior model. The team mentioned that the flight model of the aircraft is complete and basic flight instruments, gauges and radios have been coded and are fully functional and working. They are also working on fine-tuning the engines such as getting the right amount of RPM and torque.
The liveries included will be British Antarctic Survey, Air Greenland, Brymon, Berjaya Air, Tyrolean and Continental.
From the screenshots provided, the Dash 7 looks like it’s well on its way in the external modelling and we can’t wait to see more.
Neither SimWorks Studios nor PILOT’S have released a price tag as of yet or a release date, until then make sure to stay tuned to FSElite for more updates.
