Fans of SimCoders and JRollonPlanes might be interested to know that the Marchetti SF260, a highly regarded X-Plane 11 aircraft, is now in the early stages of coming to Microsoft Flight Simulator. They have released a short work in progress video showing off the aircraft in motion and it’s already looking pretty good.
Ferrari of the skies to Microsoft Flight Simulator
A well known Italian light aircraft, the Marchetti SF260 first flew in 1964 and apparently picked up the nickname “Ferrari of the skies” thanks to its aerobatic performance and sleek lines. This aircraft was lovingly recreated for X-Plane 11 and released in 2018. It is highly regarded in X-Plane circles as one of the best GA types out there although it doesn’t always make the top 10 lists as the type itself is somewhat lesser known. Nonetheless, news that SimCoders and JRollonPlanes are coming together to bring the type to Microsoft Flight Simulator is definitely news worthy if the same care and attention to detail are put into this aircraft.
The video is accompanied by a message of support for lost friends and family in this pandemic that we’re still fighting and a short description of what they are up to:
Simcodders and JRollon planes, are developing this plane for MSFS. Still very easly state (pre-alpha), but lot of work can be used from XPlane version.JRollon Planes on YouTube
