Balsa Model Flight Sim has moved on to the next phase and is now available in Steam Early Access. The release follows the closed development of three and a half years and weeks of beta testing. It’s currently being offered at a 10% discount right now at Steam.

In a statement, Floating Origin Interactive Founder and Lead Developer Felipe Falanghe shared that he’s thanking those who not only joined the beta but gave invaluable feedback on different issues. He went on to say that throughout the testing period, the team fixed a lot of bugs and implemented good ideas.

Falanghe added that right now they’re working to ensure that the game has a stable and flexible platform. By being in Early Access, he added that they should be able to work on some of the planned features.
