Just as promised, FSDT released today its hugely-anticipated GSX Pro for Microsoft Flight Simulator. After breaking the news that a release was imminent, and following a stream of early previews from content creators over the last few days, GSX Pro is now finally out with a host of very cool features related to the ground services in MSFS.
GSX arrives to MSFS in a thoroughly modernized fashion and determined to completely revamp the ground services mechanics in the simulator. From significantly improved features such as Pushback, Catering, Refueling, Baggage Loading and Marshalling, to brand new services like visible animated passengers, cargo loading, FollowMe cars, de-icing, and much more, airports will become much more alive around the user’s aircraft!
GSX Pro works with every aircraft. The tool comes with a database that includes many default and popular third-party airplanes, especially airliners, but users can create their own custom profiles for their favorite airplanes. In fact, customisability is a strong point with GSX that also extends to airports. While the tool works automatically on every airport, users can customize many aspects such as parking spots, starting positions, passenger waypoints, and more.
GSX Pro comes with its own set of custom ground service vehicles, an expanding selection that now includes more than 230 models. These will eventually be available in a “lite” version of GSX that will come to the Marketplace, specially tailored for Xbox simmers.
FSDT’s GSX Pro is now available for MSFS, priced at 38,39€. It’s a relatively steep price for something that is not an aircraft, but it’s a fantastic program that greatly enhances the airport experience. It’s a must-have, really, if you care about this kind of stuff. Thankfully, the product page offers plenty of details about what it does, and there are already a ton of YouTube videos previewing the tool in MSFS.
