Following on from the release of the Aerosoft CRJ 550/700 for Microsoft Flight Simulator earlier this month, Aerosoft has released its first major update for the product.

Looking at the extensive changelog down below for version 1.0.0.1 of the CRJ 550/700, there are plenty of fixes throughout the aircraft. Some notable fixes include COM frequency swapping, flickering screens in specific conditions and also some animations with the aircraft. Perhaps most importantly, the update addresses crash to desktop problems some users were experiencing. This was particularly evident when inputting a custom waypoint into an empty ALTN flightplan and also when inputting specific fixes into the FMS.

Whilst the update focuses heavily on fixes, there is also a range of additional functionality and changes to improve the experience. For example, the exterior lights have been reworked and there is now visual feedback when the mouse is clicked on the EFB. Speaking of the EFB, Aerosoft has adjusted some of the colours within the EFB and also fixed an issue with double weights when converting pounds of kilograms.

There are nearly 50 different fixes and changes with this incremental update. You can get the update from your Aerosoft account; we’re not sure right now if the update is live via the Microsoft Flight Simulator Marketplace, but keep an eye on your notification bell in the simulator to learn of a new update.

If you don’t already own the Aerosoft CRJ 550/700 for Microsoft Flight Simulator, you can get it now from Aerosoft for €42.01 (excluding tax).
