True to their roadmap, Microsoft has opened up the application process for the Technical Alpha testing group.
After logging into the Insider Program at their official site you will be given a series of questions set to gauge your involvement in flight simulation, how much you use simulators, and other demographic questions – likely so Microsoft can have a well rounded testing pool.
For those who register but are not initially chosen, fear not as Microsoft has said that there will be multiple waves of testers brought on board.
Following the roadmap, there are several items of note coming up this month.
On September 19th the technical alpha timeline will be released, along with another media update.
September 26th will see yet another media update, an overview of the feedback pipeline, a general update to the development roadmap, along with the news many have been waiting for: the Feature Discovery series.
This series will consist of four parts which will go into more depth about what changes you will see in the world, weather, aerodynamics and cockpits.
Along with the new roadmap, four new videos were made available to Insiders. We took some screencaps of them below, but to watch them all, you will have to head to the Insider page.
We’ll continue to keep you updated with the latest from Microsoft’s Flight Simulator 2020 as it happens.
