7.00.028 is now available as a free public release.

Balloon Burst III adds a variety of challenging new levels that are sure to test your skills in different ways! All you have to do is earn a medal in the Balloon Burst and Balloon Burst II challenges to unlock it.

We're also giving out a new aircraft: the Great Planes Proud Bird! This EF1 (electric formula one) race plane also makes a great sport flyer.

If you earn a medal in the new Balloon Burst III challenge, you will unlock yet another new model.

See the full release notes below for more info.

Note that this update is cumulative. As long as you obtain the update via the Launcher, you do not need to update to any earlier/in-between versions first.

The LauncherHelper will need to restart partway through this process. Answer "Yes" when it asks if you want to continue downloading the new version. When this process is finished, you will have the latest available version of RealFlight 7.
