Microsoft Flight Simulator Phenom 100, Blackhawk, Pilatus PC-12 and Prague Airport Get New Screenshots; Ancona and Borkum liberated
Today, third-party developers had plenty of news and releases in store for Microsoft Flight Simulators add-ons.
We start with Ouroboros, which released a development update on its EMB-500 Phenom 100.
We have studio renders for you today. This model came to life faster than expected, but we are happy to share it with you. The future of this model will be enhanced with a “V2” but the current version is close to what you will be flying as we move into the texture phase. We plan to natively integrate the Working Title NXi system into our Phenom, meaning you don’t have to install it separately to enjoy detailed aircraft. Over time we plan to include a custom EICAS and more pages with sufficient support and availability. Before deploying our Phenom 300 model, we will need to have perfected the Phenom 100 after its release. Needless to say yes, it’s also in the long-term pipeline.

This aircraft is going to be freeware and open-source. To follow the progress of the developer, you can consult his Discord server.
More freeware news comes from Delta Simulations, which is working on a rather spectacular UH-60 Blackhawk helicopter.
We’ve made tremendous progress with UH60, and I’m extremely happy to share the latest screen and model improvements with you.
Starting with the displays, we created realistic displays with guidance from our many amazing pilots. The screens have been tested in the simulation and have been optimized to create negligible FPS impact on gameplay. We are pleased to introduce our HMD, which tracks the user’s view as they move around the cockpit. Moving on to the models, the majority of the details on the exterior were found to be inaccurate or too lacking in detail, so we redid them. Some of the more notable improvements would be a redesign of the UES, new landing gear, external textures, decals, rivets, and a general mesh cleanup. We’ve also taken the time to flesh out the current variants we work with.
We modeled detailed skis and FLIR systems for our HH60M Medevac variant, tweaked the guns and cargo for our HH60W CSAR variant, and made it extremely easy for livery artists to customize external parts. We launched the MH60M DAP version, but we plan to reserve it for its own progress update!
The current version of the helicopter can already be downloaded and you can follow the development on the developer’s own discord server.
We also get an update from Carenado on the Pilatus PC-12. The developer is correcting the final details and you can check out the screenshots below.
Other screenshots are from Tailstrike Design, which featured Václav Havel Prague Airport (LKPR) in the Czech Republic. As usual, they were shared on the developer’s official Discord server.
An announcement has come with IniBuilds, which will release Xometry Design’s second airport for the simulator, Eagle County Regional Airport (KEGE) in Colorado, USA.
Although it is a smaller airport and most of its flights are seasonal, it is very popular during the winter seasons when it is a destination for skiers and vacationers.
Moving on to the builds, Barelli MSFS Addon has released Ancona International Airport (LIPY), also known as Marche Airport in Italy.
It is currently available on SimMarket for $13.34 plus applicable VAT.
We also get a version of MM Simulation, and that’s Borkum Airfield (EDWR) in Germany.
This is also available on SimMarket for $9.60.
