Brief Roadmap Overview from FlyTampa

Lgts Xp Flytampa Thessaloniki (4)

Earlier today, FlyTampa allowed us to share the news that they are bringing Thessaloniki to X-Plane. Along with that news, the team at FlyTampa also shared with us a brief overview on what to expect from the team over the course of the next few months.

As mentioned, the next release from FlyTampa will be Thessaloniki on X-Plane 11. That product is almost ready for the prime time and we’ll let you know once it’s available to purchase.  Thessaloniki will join Corfu and Athens as confirmed Greek airports from FlyTampa. For those curious about Athens, work is still on-going but nearing completion according to the information we were given. Furthermore, Heraklion for X-Plane 11, has been pushed back slightly to incorporate the new features found in Thessaloniki. Heraklion was originally under the FSDG banner, but since the developer has now moved to FlyTampa, it will be released via them instead.

Further to the new announcement and previews, FlyTampa also confirmed to us in the next four to six months, Copenhagen and Amsterdam will receive brand new updates for Prepar3D V4, with both airports scheduled to be released on X-Plane by the end of the year. Las Vegas will follow on from that afterwards.
