As helicopters seem to still be slated for 2022, Microsoft is bringing something else to the sim that does take of and land vertical and it hovers, but it’s fueled by electricity.

According to their latest update, among other news, we are going to have access to the Volocity, a “urban air mobility” vehicle by German company Volocopter in November.

Microsoft says that “the VoloCity air taxi represents our first step toward the introduction of one of the widely-requested aircraft – helicopters!”, which is great news, and all very much still shrouded in silence and secrecy. What will Microsoft bring next? Could this mean helicopters will actually see the light of day in the sim early in 2022?

Fingers crossed!
