The latest development update from SimWorks Studios reveals that the team is now fully focused on this project, finishing the external model with decals, textures, and a nice assortment of real-world liveries. These will include paint schemes from British Antarctic Survey, Air Greenland, Brymon, Berjaya Air, Tyrolean, and Continental.

I asked SWS on their Facebook Dash 7 update whether it would have the large cargo door, but no response yet. Anyone know ?


Surely not everybody was kung fu fighting.

Q400 is booooooring. This is way more interesting.

Not sure how you can find the q400 boring.

Too automated, been done before 😁. I don’t recall a high quality Dash 7 ever being done, so that’s way less boring.

I can imagine an Airbus 320 being called too automated but a Dash 8 Q400 too automated... and boring?! It's my favorite plane (for simming) of all time so I really hope I will be able to fly it in MSFS someday! But hey, to each his own. 😉

I'm not saying the Dash 7 is not super cool.  But it's not binary.  Just because I think the Dash 7 is interesting and unique doesn't mean I think the Dash 8 is boring.  Too automated?  You are talking about the plane like it's an airbus or something.  Yet it does not have an autothrottle and barely has a proper VNAV.  I'm in the camp where I like both the Dash 8 and Dash 7.

Same here!  I’m really excited for the Dash 7, something interesting and very different from the norm, but at the same time the lack of a good Q400 on the horizon is a big hole in my hanger right now.

The dash 7 looks to be coming along very nicely right and I look forward to flying it.

Depending on the release timeline we could end up with two four-engine airliners in the sim neither of which is a 747 😉

Milton Shupe's freeware Dash 7 for FS9 was absolutely first-class. I believe it was also available in FSX - not sure, my memory is a bit dim.
