MSFS World Updates return to the USA: update 10 is now available!

World Update 10 was released today for Microsoft Flight Simulator. We knew it was coming today, but the location to be intervened was still a secret. Well, not anymore: the United States are once again the target of a big update for Microsoft Flight Simulator, after being one of the first locations to be enhanced back in the early days of MSFS, in World Update 2.

The USA is probably the most popular flying location for MSFS users, and it’s also the one where the team has the most data available. Today’s update adds the usual assortment of famous landmarks and points of interest scattered all across the USA and US Territories, along with updated satellite imagery and elevation data.

Besides general improvements across the vast American territory, there are also specific enhancements in 12 new urban areas (including San Diego, Albany, Key Largo, Seattle, and Eugene), but also 4 new handcrafted airports, all made by Gaya Simulations:

  • Catalina Airport (KAVX)
  • Valdez Airport (PAVD)
  • Lake Tahoe Airport (KTVL)
  • Block Island State Airport (KBID)
