A new video preview for Aerosoft’s upcoming Twin Otter for Microsoft Flight Simulator has been shared by Hans Hartmann on YouTube. The new video gives us a sneak peek at the external animations and also the sound pack being used for the aircraft.
The Twin Otter is renowned for its versatility. Thanks to the numerous attachment or configurations found with the Twin Otter, it can withstand almost any environment type. The tough airframe can be adapted for land or sea, as well as being able to touch down on almost any type of environment. Furthermore, the short take-off and landing characteristics of the plane mean the possibilities of where you can go with the plane are almost limitless.
He described the video as “Pre-Pre-Pre-Pre-Pre-Pre-Pre-Alpha Work” meaning there’s still a lot of work left to go with the development before we see the Twin Otter in our simulators.
We have previously seen previews of the plane come with floats attached, which is great for landing in large bodies of water and at seaports. You can view those previews here. We also know that Microsoft / Asobo is working on improving how turboprops are handled in the simulator and we imagine that Aerosoft will be taking full advantage of those new improvements as the plane continues to be developed.
After you’ve watched the video above, be sure to check out other previews on the Twin Otter.
