Microsoft Flight Simulator – World Update 7 for Australia is now available

Microsoft Flight Simulator is taking its players to the amazing “Land Down Under” in the form of World Update 7. This latest update brings a list of laundry improvements to a country twice the size of its continent. This marks the World Update for sims in 2022, which is one of the some other updates will be rolled out throughout the rest of the year.

The four airports have been hand-crafted by ORBX, a group of flight simulation add-on manufacturers that have been creating high-quality landscape enhancements and stand-alone aircraft for several years. More than 100 smaller airports across Australia have also received some high-resolution enhancements by this team.

A large amount of new geographic and satellite data was included in the update creation process. There are 11 major settlements across Australia that have had a full photometric upgrade, allowing for the creation of suitable 3D cityscapes and buildings. In addition, there are dozens of new attractions modeled accordingly, including famous Australian monuments such as the Twelve Apostles, Premier Tower, Infinity Tower and the Sydney Opera House.

You can explore Australia with 16 new activities, including multiple bushwalks, discovery flights and five new landing challenges.

An explosion from the past

A new toy for simulation players is also available: the Fokker F.VII. If you want to really shoot Australia’s landscapes in VFR, then Asobo’s new-but-older trimmer should do the trick. As the second entry in the Local Legends series for Microsoft Flight Simulator, the Fokker VII is a historic aircraft built before World War II in the 1920s.

Based in the Netherlands, Fokker designed this aircraft to handle all kinds of conditions. And it certainly did, even managing to bravely embark on the journey to become the first transatlantic airlift and also the first transpacific flight from the continent. United States to Hawaii. Fittingly, the FVII also made history by making the first transpacific flight from the US to Australia.

Indeed, this historic bird has plenty of stories to tell, and it has now been fully recreated in rich detail for modern simulators to enjoy. It comes in both wheel and float versions, so you can take it anywhere.

The Fokker FVII is available now through the In-Game Marketplace for $14.99 USD. Microsoft Flight Simulator – World Update 7 for Australia is now available
