This is an eventful week for Microsoft Flight Simulator pilots, with several notable updates and releases across the platform. Following the launch of Sim Update 9 earlier this week, along with two new vintage airplanes, exciting news for the future, and even some high-profile upcoming releases, we also have a particularly compelling Marketplace update that brings Xbox pilots the first Carenado airplanes to be made available on the console.
PC pilots have been enjoying some great products from Carenado for quite some time, but those on Xbox have been left on the tarmac watching them fly. This changes today, with the launch of the first Carenado airplanes on the Xbox, possibly paving the way for future releases as well. For now, it’s the Mooney, Seneca, Seminole, and Skymaster that are available for both PC and Xbox simmers.
But there’s more new stuff to grab your interest in the Marketplace this week. For example, the Nemeth Designs S.205 and the Zippy Sport have also now launched in the Marketplace, following their release on third-party vendors a few weeks ago. They are also now available for Xbox.
Surprisingly, new airplanes make up the majority of new Marketplace releases this week. There are only a handful of new airports this time, but one is particularly noteworthy: Drzewiecki Designs’ remarkable rendition of KRNT Renton Airport, from where the Boeing 737 from PMDG will soon come off the assembly line.
Finally, those looking to customize their favorite airliner will now find new liveries for both the A320 and the B787.
As usual, check all the new stuff below (and in the Marketplace), but make sure to stay tuned during the next few days as we follow the release of some truly spectacular new products, such as the Maddog MD-80, the Cessna 310, BAe 146… and maybe something more!
