Black Box Simulation is Bringing Britten-Norman BN-2 Islander to MSFS Soon

Black Box Simulation has confirmed they will be bringing their Britten-Norman BN-2 Islander to Microsoft Flight Simulator soon. The BN-2 Islander is a twin-engine aircraft that was first introduced in the 1960s and used regularly for island hopping and exploring more remote areas of the world. The British aircraft is incredibly versatile and has been in production for over 50 years.

The Britten-Norman BN-2 Islander has been built from the ground up for the new simulator with all new modelling and system depth. How detailed that will be is yet to be known as the post from BBS was fairly vague. That said, they did confirm that they are just testing the final few things and that the testers are currently working to ensure it’s ready for release. Whilst the forum post lacked details, Black Box Simulations’ Graham did share a handful of teasers highlighting features such as PBR usage, animated doors and detailed external modelling.

As mentioned, the BN-2 Islander can traverse a range of terrain and operate a number of flights. With that in mind, BBS did not give a clear indication on whether this product will include different varients or equipment options.

It is confirmed they are days away from a release, so once we learn more, we’ll let you know. Black Box Simulation confirmed that the BN-2 Islander will first release on their store and then from the Marketplace in the future.

Sadly those waiting on a new update for their Airbus series will have to continue waiting as nothing new was mentioned about it. That said, the team have been regularly updating their Cessna L-19 for Microsoft Flight Simulator.

Update 5th May 2021 – Minor corrections to the article to reflect the aircraft type.

32982057 10157458363128858 2550685797539905536 O

Back in January, Black Box Simulations gave a detailed overview of what to expect in version 0.90 of their series of Airbus aircraft. Since then, there has been little further information regarding a release. However, that silence has been broken as the paint kit is now available for the new version of the aircraft.

The links were posted by Black Box Simulations’ CEO Graham in the Black Box Simulation Airbus Group on Facebook. The group is closed so you will need to request access if you would like to view the post and also the links. In total, there are 7 paint kits for the Widebody aircraft, including the A330, A340 and the A330 Neo aircraft.

However, it’s important to note that the v0.90 is not yet available to download. However, as one user pointed out that it is a great sign, but Graham replied saying “dont read too much into it” and that they are continuing to work on it. No estimated time frame was given.

You can see other previews for the update, including the news that A321 Neo would be included in the package.
