The An-225 has almost reached a $1 million milestone in sales, with the proceedings being sent to Antonov. Meanwhile, the ATR 42-600/72-600 is currently the best-selling aircraft in Microsoft Flight Simulator.

Editor's Note: plus, they (briefly) mention plans for FSExpo on the stream.

The ATR occupies a really attractive area in terms of its capability, range, and runway requirements. It’s well suited for regional and commuter routes, is genuinely fun to learn and fly, and excellent value for money.

Additional weather and wind layers also confirmed to be on the way.

There’s life left in IL-2 Sturmovik: Great Battles as the 1CGS team have just announced a small menu of new Collector Planes that will extend the current series development plans through to the end of the year. 

Stormbirds, 5 May 2023


This impressive mod provides a stunning upgrade to an area that truly deserves a high-quality presentation in the simulator and comes after a series of similarly noteworthy releases from the developer such as Victoria Falls, the Hogwarts Express Train, and Falcon Field Airport.

Editor's Note: as described in the article, simmers looking for a more immersive and detailed simulation of KBOS may wish to consider the FlyTampa version. FSA does not receive a commission or incentive from any flight simulation developers.

Priced at just around $10, this airport seeks to provide a more affordable alternative to FlyTampa’s highly detailed version released a year ago.
