November 14th, 2019 – Development/Insider Update

Recommended Posts

X02019!

D8usA_kUwAAmt7M.jpg-large.jpg

At X019, we’re thrilled to reveal many of the great aircraft manufacturers we are partnering with to make Microsoft Flight Simulator the most realistic flight simulation yet. As you saw in our new trailer, we have a broad range of aircraft, including commercial airliners, business jets, and general aviation aircraft, all from the most renowned manufacturers.

The breadth of partnerships we have forged for the next generation of Microsoft Flight Simulator goes far beyond what was done for previous titles. We are determined to make this sim, and all of its components, as authentic as possible.

The aircraft partnerships we’re announcing today include (in alphabetical order):

  • Airbus
  • The Boeing Company
  • CubCrafters
  • Daher
  • Diamond Aircraft Industries
  • ICON Aircraft
  • Robin Aircraft
  • Textron Aviation

We’re excited to continue working with these great partners and will share more information on additional partnerships as we approach Microsoft Flight Simulator’s launch in 2020.

If you’re joining us in London this week for X019, please swing by our booth at the Copper Box Arena and get hands-on with Microsoft Flight Simulator yourself. Thank you for all the support!

Microsoft Flight Simulator Team

Not only that, the whole trailer is stunning.

My current install of P3D looks like a joke right now 😂

That literally made my jaw drop, looks like a very well done and detailed model.  Awesome job Microsoft / Asobo.

The timelapse scenes with the rolling clouds jaw drop me every time. The level of detail they're going for here in completely unprecedented.

Maybe a nitpick but if they insist on putting "The" in front of "Boeing Company" then surely "The Boeing Company" should appear at the end of the list if the list is in alphabetical order. The fact that everyone just calls it Boeing is irrelevant.


Give people power to really test their personality.

I was just thinking back to when I first played Flight Simulator 5 with its VGA graphics, and sound blaster sound, and how amazing that was compared to previous versions. Seeing these trailers blow that feeling out of the water!

Why single out Boeing for special treatment? Just put "The xxx Company".

There. Problem sorted! :laugh:

Typically with titles and such, "The" isn't the word it's alphabetically sorted by. Usually goes by the second word.

We're hitting excitement levels that shouldn't even be possible. Not only did they put the real world into a sim but also major developers getting on board early (most notably PMDG re-planning their entire development roadmap and shifting their in-development addon over to the new sim). Now we've even got partnerships with the world's leading commercial aircraft manufacturers plus the GA ones and apparently more partners to come.

I wish I was a year older...

As I said above, if the all started with "The" then alpha sorting would still be correct in the same order they are now. ;)
