To recap, it was supposed to be released in Spring but it was delayed. It looks like it's coming out soon.
Here are all the Alaska pictures Microsoft has released so far:
And here are the notes of the patch that will come with the release of the DLC:
Feel free to say anything about it and discuss.

But look at this: https://news.microso...-in-alaska.aspx
It says it will come with the Carbon Cub. But it's the basic version of it, which means it's going to be cockpitless.

also... as of the latest title update, all the ground textures now actually load.. and load fast. which makes for a much nicer experience. and loading in general is much faster as well.
*now just hoping they add more sim aspects.. or even just autogen traffic.. everything still seems so lonely.

bought Alaska (again only $15 so what the heck)
here's my short review of it....... AWESOME
honestly.. it really is. is it enough to change my mostly negative overview of flight... no. but it's a huge step in the right direction. i've been flying around for 3 hours now looking for things to dislike and nit pick... i really can't find anything. textures are superb, details across the entire state even at extreme remote airfields are all there.. and for anyone who says orbx is still better.... with hawaii yes orbx is better, with alaska.... more than likely not. the challenges are better also (there are no missions or aerocaches yet i assume they will come later). there's a lot more to explore.. no getting bored after 20 mins.
there's still a ways to go before this could be really good... AI, ATC, some good planes with cockpits.... the marketing still sucks, and they still need to open it up to 3rd parties
but with alaska... i now have hope.

Microsoft have to be really careful in the future.

It takes quite some time before the content loads. Just fly a bit and check back again later.
