In a post over at their Facebook page, NextGen Simulations have addressed their currently developed rendition of Embraer EMB 110 Bandeirante for Microsoft Flight Simulator. A set of previews showcasing the aircraft in the simulator was included in the post as well as an estimated release date.
Last time the development of the aircraft was mentioned back in December last year, and the developers have since made a good amount of progress. Especially related to the aircraft’s cockpit which is now almost complete.
An estimated release date of the aircraft was mentioned to be set to Early to Mid April 2021 with a possibility of being earlier based on the final development stage.
Previews showcasing not only the cockpit but the aircraft exterior as well were shared and can be seen below.
Upon release, three variants of the aircraft will be available: EMB-110P1, EMB-110P1K, and EMB-110P. No price details were disclosed by the developer just yet and so remain unknown.
