Lastly, QualityWings provides some perspective regarding the recent Microsoft Flight Simulator 2020 announcement.
Also here’s a quick word on the new Microsoft Flight Simulator. Just like everybody else in the community we didn’t see that announcement coming. All of us on the team are excited and curious about what’s to come.
The level of excitement we see is extremely impressive and we think that our community as a whole will benefit from the new Simulator.
It’s too early to make any commitments but we’re keeping an eye on this new development for sure.
