CRJ EDLP 1.png.96c7d22195c07fc22a7ffe4bf3e06aa4

Aerosoft is known to be a close partner to Microsoft for the release of the new Flight Simulator. With Aerosoft providing the physical release of the simulator across Europe, it’s no question that Aerosoft is keen to work with the new simulator when it releases on August 18th. What does remain to be seen is the additional content Aerosoft will be bringing to the simulator via their third-party content offerings. We already discussed how they intend on releasing Trondheim Airport (ENVA) and Paderborn Airport (EDLP) and also the CRJ for the simulator. However,  Mathijs Kok gave a nice update today surrounding the progress being made as well as some previews for the CRJ.

The previews for the Aerosoft CRJ below is very much a work in progress but demonstrates how the SDK enables developers to do lots of interesting things. The team are currently working on a video which will be shared soon of the aircraft in progress. High definition screenshots can be found on the forums.

As mentioned as well, Paderborn Airport (EDLP) is also in development by Jo Erlend Sund made. The airport scenery product will be found in the default sim (assuming all editions). The scenery is detailed and represents what developers can do when creating their airports for the new simulator. You can see the first preview of that airport down below.


A few other immediate questions were answered too. First is that there are no free upgrades from existing products. This is because there is a huge amount of work going into bringing these products to life in Microsoft Flight Simulator. Prices will be decided closer to release.

It is also reconfirmed that Aerosoft will continue to develop for X-Plane and Prepar3D for as long as customers continue to buy products on those platforms.
