Today third-party developers had some spiffy reveals to share about add-ons for Microsoft Flight Simulator, on top of a very relevant airport release. 

IniBuilds has been teasing Dubai International Airport (OMDB) for quite a while, culminating with yesterday’s release of a free landmarks add-on for the city.

The next surprise comes from Flysimware, which revealed a rather beautiful Learjet 35A. 

Perhaps the most legendary of the Learjet family, the Microsoft Flight Simulator rendition of this sleek bizjet with its iconic wingtip fuel tanks built between the seventies and the nineties was showcased in great detail in a long livestream by the developers.

The best news is that it’s coming soon, at least in early access. The plan is to launch it before Christmas. 

Lstly, NetDesign released a trailer showing off its upcoming Houari Boumediene Airport (DAAG) serving Algiers, the capital of Algeria.
