Third-party developers had new fun and a relevant build for Microsoft Flight Simulator add-ons in store today.

We start with a new video from FSDreamTeam’s Umberto Colapicchioni showcasing the upcoming Microsoft Flight Simulator version of the popular GSX Ground Services.

Drzewiecki Design has released their highly detailed Renton Municipal Airport (KRNT) in the United States, including the adjoining Boeing factory.

It’s currently available on Orbx Direct and SimMarket for around $22 plus applicable VAT.

  • A high quality model of KRNT Renton Municipal Airport, with great detail throughout the airport area, FPS compatible design, with epic night textures, dynamic lighting and supreme PBR materials
  • High definition mesh including the exact profile of the track
  • Fully modeled Boeing Renton factory with an animated assembly line, where you can see for yourself how 737s are made
  • Custom animated people, vehicles and trains
  • Sound designed specifically for this product for ultimate immersion
  • Fully compatible with Seattle Landmarks MSFS by Drzewiecki Design

Finally, we get a development update for the Concorde by DC Designs, including the March 30 release date and some new screenshots. Of course, the Xbox version will come later. March 30 marks the PC-only release on the Just Flight store.

Concorde’s work continues with even more animated dials, buttons, knobs, switches and drums! We have now added the Selector Dials which control how much fuel is transferred to which tanks each time, allowing precise control of Concorde’s center of gravity in flight. This is not only important for obvious balance reasons, but also when using the automatic fuel transfer system, for which it then controls how much fuel to transfer each time to maintain the balance of the aircraft without the user having to worry about it.

The hydraulic system works well, with multi-selectable configurations for the blue, yellow and green systems (although the three had no effect on the Concorde, they were there for redundancy purposes in the real plane) and the electrical system is linked with everything else. There’s basically too much to list here so I’m not going to bore you all with that, suffice it to say that with the throw gauges being finished/refined Concorde is finally fully functional and working on testing in-flight manuals and finals will begin next week. At the same time, a single copy of Concorde will be sent to YouTuber and commercial pilot CorporatePilotDad, who will perform the first preview of Concorde while helping us test it before launch day. Further preview copies will then be released to selected previewers in the following days. Those receiving preview copies have either already been contacted or received confirmation that they will.

For those of you wondering, Concorde’s launch day is March 30, 2022.
