Flightbeam Studios Celebrates 10 Years & Shares Microsoft Flight Simulator News

July 21, 2020

Creating large-scale airports for FSX and Prepar3D has long been the goal of Flightbeam Studios - exactly 10 years, in fact. The group's head took this opportunity to look to the future of his company and at the forthcoming Microsoft Flight Simulator.

Taking to Facebook to address customers, Amir Salehi reminisced about the foundation of Flightbeam.

"Dear customers, it's hard to believe it's been 10 years since I first made the announcement post on FSDeveloper about KSFO (legacy) being in production, along with the first screenshots. Since then, I've had the pleasure of meeting many customers, developers and clients that have propelled this brand into something I never imagined 10 years ago."

"We've had sim platforms come and go, various challenges and even cancellations. This year, above all, has presented itself to be a boss fight, with extraordinary circumstances in every direction. I've been extremely proud to have you as customers and appreciate your support every day."

He goes on to issue a heart-felt thank-you to all of those who've supported the brand in the past decade.

Whilst that was a look back, the group also details their plans going forward in today's post, namely regarding Microsoft Flight Simulator. This marks Flightbeam's first official statement regarding support for the platform, which has been 'in full swing for some time.'

"I believe this is the next generation platform and will be for the foreseeable future," he says.

Customers can expect further announcements from himself and the rest of the Flightbeam team regarding conversions 'in the very near future'.
