The team over at Leonardo Software House released an update to their beloved Fly the Maddog X for both Microsoft Flight Simulator as well as Prepar3D.

New installers were rolled out for both MSFS and P3D and is available on simMarket. Maddog customers can now download and run the installer which will update the airplane addon automatically while keeping any settings and liveries the same.

Among numerous fixes for their MSFS version, the update will also include GSX Pro integration as well as the ability for Simbrief to automatically download the latest OFB from the onboard EFB. There are a number of additional changes so be sure to checkout the full changelog below. For P3D users, Leonardo Software House included a few modest fixes as well (we’ve included a separate changelog for you to check out).

If you haven’t already purchased the Fly the Maddog X and wish to do so, it’s available on simMarket for €75.00 (excluding taxes).
