iFly is currently working on their Boeing 737 MAX rendition for Microsoft Flight Simulator, which they brought to life in Prepar3D last year. Whilst this is only a single preview of the aircraft, we have some information about the progress of this plane after a while.
iFly is well-known in the FSX and Prepar3D community for their 737 and 747 aircraft, and last year they were the first developer to ever bring an official Boeing 737 MAX add-on, which was not seen in any simulator yet. The team later went to confirm that they would be bringing this plane to Microsoft Flight Simulator, and they mentioned that the development is going smoothly. However, other than that, there was silence from the iFly’s side.
Project manager Jannier mentioned on the Forums a few months ago this is mostly because the team is busy working on the plane. However, after many months, they broke the silence and just ten minutes ago, the very first screenshot of the 737 MAX for Microsoft Flight Simulator was shared.
The single image shows the main landing gear of the aeroplane and the modelling work the team had done on it a few months ago. The image shared is from an earlier development version of the aeroplane. A bit of fuselage is also visible, with the 737 MAX being in the classic orange iFly livery.
Even though there is not much to talk about right now, we might see a bit more of this plane soon. In the meantime, you can also take a look at our review of the iFly 737 MAX for Prepar3D.
