First Glimpse of the QualityWings Simulations 787 in MSFS


QualityWings Simulations has shared its first screenshots and information for the 787 Ultimate in Microsoft Flight Simulator. The new screenshots are still very much work in progress but, highlights both the external modelling and also how the cockpit looks for the plane in the simulator.

The developers said on their Facebook page that they have been testing the pre-release versions of the simulator for some time, but only “with the last few iterations of the SDK that things have started to take shape”. Despite that, there is still plenty of work to be done by QualityWings to bring the bird to life in the new simulator. The previews are an initial glimpse of the current work, but there are still many unknowns and dependencies before more detailed information can be shared.

That said, QualityWings Simulations are continuing to develop the aircraft with an estimated release of Q2 2021.

Whilst this is exciting news for those on Microsoft Flight Simulator, the team reaffirmed their commitment to the FSX and P3D version of the Ultimate 787 as they continue to work on improvements and fixes for that product.

That’s all was said right now from the team, but you can follow them on Facebook to stay up-to-date.
