As we approach the release of the Aerosoft CRJ for Microsoft Flight Simulator, the first of five manuals has been released for public preview.

The manual itself, as mentioned, is the first volume out of five being made for the product when it does release. This first volume covers some general information on the aircraft type, including basic facts, cockpit layout, and how to use the EFB. This is a pre-release document with numerous things still to be checked and finalised, but you can consider this a first look.

You can download a copy of the pre-release volume 1 manual from the Aerosoft forums (an account is required).

Further to the manual being published, a series of new images have been shared highlighting a new livery type (American Airlines). The screenshots are being captured in preparation for the upcoming trailer of the aircraft.

Whilst a release date is still unknown, work continues and with elements such as the manual and trailer being created, it appears Aerosoft is confident that the release will be sooner than later. Further previews and videos are also promised to come before Christmas.

As always, we’ll be keeping a close eye on the situation and be sure to let you know once we hear more.

Thanks to Niels for the heads up.

FlyTampa has shared on their Facebook page two screenshots of their Saint Martin Princess Juliana Airport (TNCM) scenery in Microsoft Flight Simulator. The work is in progress and the two screenshots show views of the main terminal (although with the old Air France logo). The terminals seem to be really detailed, setting the bar quite high for the remainder of the scenery. The original FS9 scenery not only included the Saint Martin Airport and island but also the Saint Barthelemy Airport (TFFJ) and its dreadful approach as well as Saba Airport (TNCS) and its 400m runway.
