FlightSim Studio AG is probably a little know name for the MSFS community, but this Swiss team is playing a bigger role than you think. Today, in a partnership with Aerosoft, FlightSim Studio released their rendition of Heide-Büsum airport, a small German general aviation airfield located along the coast between Hamburg and Denmark.
Heide-Büsum (EDXB) is a charming little airfield, perfect to use as a base for VFR flights across this region, which includes some notable interesting spots such as the East Frisian Islands. In fact, there are quite a few islands around here, so pilots have plenty of opportunities for some island-hopping (*hint *hint, Aerosoft’s upcoming Twin Otter will be perfect for this!).
While Heide-Büsum does have a single scheduled flight to Heligoland, aboard OFD’s Britten-Norman Islanders, this airfield is mostly used by smaller aircraft such as ultralight and gliders. Gliders… FlightSim Studio? Does that ring any bells? Well, two months ago, Asobo and Microsoft revealed that they had found a partner to work with to bring official support for gliders in MSFS. That parter is FlightSim Studio who, besides, has also worked on some bespoke airports that were included with the Germany, Austria and Switzerland World Update!
So, this development studio may not have many standalone products for MSFS, save for this new scenery for Heide-Büsum airfield and a couple of others, but the team has been working closely with the MSFS team to add great new free content to the simulator. Just check this Partnership Series video that was shared a few weeks ago to learn about their involvement.
As for Heide-Büsum, it’s a very nicely detailed little spot in Germany, a great showcase of the capabilities of these developers to create high-quality add-ons for MSFS. The product images and the teaser video are very promising, and this product is available for just around €10, so there’s little reason not to try it out!
