In September 2020, Microsoft shared their vision for continuously improving Microsoft Flight Simulator by bringing meaningful updates to the simulator on a regular basis.
The virtual world in Microsoft’s Flight Simulator is getting its latest major update, one with a focus on Europe’s Nordic countries of Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway, and Sweden. Renowned for its natural splendour and architectural wonder, this region has been rendered in its most realistic fidelity yet in World Update V: Nordics.
Simmers can take to the northern European sky and explore vast fjords, riveting urban vistas, domineering peaks, and centuries-old iconic castles from within the cockpit. World Update V: Nordics includes improvements in detail of broad swaths of landscapes, enhancements to regional architecture, improved data for 100 airports and 78 carefully selected points of interest.
This update also features five bush trips, one for each of the Nordic countries, that show off some the very best elements of these destinations.
Finally, World Update V: Nordics brings new hand-crafted airports, and five original landing challenges designed to test and hone aviation mettle throughout a range of conditions. Test your landing skills at: Denmark’s Bornholm, Iceland’s Ísafjörður, Sweden’s Stockholm Arlanda, Norway’s Svalbard, and Finland’s Vaasa Airports.
World Update V: Nordics is available FREE to all Microsoft Flight Simulator users. Be sure your simulator is up to date first, then visit the Marketplace to download the latest world update and immerse yourself in this magnificent and expansive corner of the world. The sky is calling!
