FlyTampa has dropped the strongest hint yet that their entry into the X-Plane scenery market may not be far off at all, using Facebook to tease what appears to be their first product for the platform.

Recently we’ve seen a number of prominent, high-quality developers traditionally from the FSX/P3D world making the move to introduce their products to the X-Plane market.
Orbx released their first product for X-Plane in the form of Meigs Field (which FSElite will be taking a look at in-depth soon) not too long ago and was snapped up in droves by X-Plane users excited to see what the company was able to bring to the table.
Now with FlyTampa making their move, it only goes to show that X-Plane is a market that developers cannot ignore.

There’s no news on what the first X-Plane-based FlyTampa product will be, nor when we can expect it, but keen-eyed readers may be able to work this one out.
If you think you know what it is, be sure to leave your words of wisdom in the comments!

FSElite will keep you updated on any further news on this exciting development.
