In the next partnership series episode, the developer introduced a well-known Microsoft product – Bing, which is responsible for the real-world satellite imagery in the simulator.

Another thing that was discussed, is the SDK update, which has been made public with the release of the simulator. The SDK is still basic, the developer says and there is still a lot more to come into it. Since the closed beta, the developer improved the documentation of it, especially for aprons, taxiway signs, and navdata. Now, the development should be easier with improved developer mode found in simulator.

For the aircraft, WebAssembly package is still undergoing development. The developers are trying to implement a code to help porting existing C++ aircraft models. Also, they are improving SimConnect feature, which is used to connect to VATSIM and some other 3rd party add-ons.
