Update – Shortly after the unveiling of these first new images of the Milviz 310, the first MSFS video of the aircraft emerged, showing a cockpit view over the window with full in-flight audio. Watch it below!
The Milviz Cessna 310R has turned into an elusive machine, having been teased for MSFS since before the launch of the simulator in 2020, but yet to be launched more than a year later. In the meantime, Milviz has launched other successful aircraft and continues to work on a series of new projects, while the 310 continues to be worked on. But this week we finally got some news about this aircraft, with new images to go along!
Well, there’s actually not much news about the Milviz 310. What we learned the last time we heard about this aircraft should still be valid today, but now we have some new screenshots of the 310 in MSFS. Clearly, the previously expected release timeframe in the summer has long been gone, but hopefully this update shows that the folks at Milviz haven’t forgotten about this beloved twin.
These new images, shared on the official MSFS forums, finally show a model of the aircraft that looks like it belongs to MSFS. Previous shots represented a very early build, with poor textures and unrefined modeling, expected at that stage since it was being brought to MSFS from older platforms. Now, the 310 is starting to look like something we would expect to see in MSFS.
There’s a decent variety of external and internal shots. In the latter, we can see the classic instrument panel with steam gauges. A blank area in the center is clearly visible, which Milviz says will be used to hold the avionics stack. Included options will be the GNS530 and 430, but also the popular GTN750 mod.
In line with previous releases for MSFS, such as the brilliant Corsair and the recently launched Porter PC-6, Milviz is looking to recreate the 310 in exceptional detail. And we know MSFS is in dire need of truly high-fidelity twin-engined GA airplanes, so let’s hope Milviz is able to deliver on their promises.
Remember that Milviz is moving ahead on several fronts, with a variety of airplanes currently under development for MSFS, such as the DHC-2 Beaver, the SR-71 Blackbird, the A-1H Skyraider, or the ATR 72-600.
