QualityWings 787 Coming “Summer 2017”?

With all the excitement surrounding Prepar3D V4, other developers are coming out sharing information about their new projects. One project we are excited to see a quick update for is the QualityWings 787!

In a new Facebook cover image just uploaded, it would appear that QualityWings are setting “Summer 2017” as their release target for their highly anticipated 787.

A quick Google shows that summer runs from Wednesday 21st June until Friday 22nd September! We can only hope this will be the estimated release date. The project has been in beta for some while now.

Also on the image was re-confirmation of their attendance this year at FSCon 2017. Lucky for you, we are there as well to report as much as we can so hopefully we can update you there.
