BlueBird Simulations Announces 787 and Showcases 757 and 767 for MSFS at FSExpo 2024

Shervin from BlueBird Simulations took the stage to initiate the #FSExpoFriday event at FSExpo 2024. During the session, BlueBird Simulations talked about the 757 for Microsoft Flight Simulator, the 767 for MSFS and finally announced that they are working on a Boeing 787 Dreamliner for MSFS.

The session began with the presentation of their Boeing 757 for Microsoft Flight Simulator.

During the presentation, the team from BlueBird Simulations presented the key highlights of the upcoming Boeing 757 for MSFS. According to the presentation, the developers aim to present the most accurate and immersive rendition of the aircraft for a flight simulator.

The team achieves this by featuring flight dynamics tested by real 757 pilots, custom sounds recorded from the actual aircraft, accurate night lighting with custom effects, or fully simulated aircraft systems and a terrain map on the PDF.

Shervin then focused on the FMS, which will cooperate with the custom-coded autopilot built from scratch. The aircraft will have proper LNAV/VNAV functionalities for proper instrument operations and be capable of handling even RNAV procedures. For ease of use, the FMS will be capable of importing flight plan from SimBrief.

Right before heading to talk about the 767 for MSFS, the presentation moved over to the flight deck, demonstrating how detailed it will be. The developers worked with thousands of photos of the real aircraft and hundreds of real-world measurements.

Further down the session, Shervin presented that work is progressing on the Boeing 767 for MSFS, proved by a showcase of the aircraft from Blender, a software often used to develop aircraft addons for flight simulators. Upon initial release, he confirmed that the aircraft will come with two engine variants: General Electric and Pratt&Whitney.

Since at the initial release it will be the 767-300ER version, the 767-200 variants and cargo variants (both -200 and -300) will come later on in a bundle as a separate expansion back. On the other hand, what we can expect upon initial release, are two wing options: without and with winglets.

Just like with the 757, the developers are working with real-life pilots and the flight dynamics will be tested by them. The goal is to make this the most immersive and accurate 767 ever creator for flight simulator, Shervin mentioned in the post.

At the very end of the presentation, Shervin from BlueBird Simulations surprised the crowd, in a good way, by announcing work on their Boeing 787 rendition for Microsoft Flight Simulator. Stressing that the showcase is still of the very early stages of the development of the aircraft.

In the meantime, since Shervin mentioned this is still far away, we can at least enjoy previews of the 787’s model.

No release dates or prices were given on either of the projects, but stay tuned on FSNews for future updates. As official partners of FSExpo 2024, we are also reporting on the event and you can keep track of our FSExpo 2024 page through this link: fsnews.eu/fsexpo.
