JustFlight BAe-146 Professional

Πριν λίγο δημοσιεύτηκε το αναμενόμενο Bae 146 της JustFlight για το MSFS. Ένα σκάφος που υπήρχε και στον στόλο της τότε Astra Airlines.

To ΒAe της JustFlight είναι ένα από τα πρώτα «high fidelity» airliner για το MSFS. Στην σελίδα τους, όπου είναι διαθέσιμο στη  τιμή των ~59€,  το αποκαλούν ακόμα και «study level». Όποιοι έχουν αγορασμένο το ίδιο addon σε άλλη πλατφόρμα (X-Plane πχ) δικαιούνται 10% έκπτωση. Εδώ να σημειωθεί ότι η έκδοση για MSFS είναι αρκετά ανανεωμένη και περιέχει πολλά περισσότερα features.

Το πακέτο περιέχει 8 διαφορετικές εκδόσεις του σκάφους και μεγάλη γκάμα από liveries. Είναι βασικά το -100 / -200 και -300 όπως και τα ανάλογα configs για Passenger, Cargo η Military.

Όπως θα δείτε και πιο κάτω στην αναλυτική λίστα των features, έχει ένα σωρό custom systems και configs. Τα FMS που βασίζονται στο ProLine των WorkingTitle είναι ολοκληρωμένα και μπορείτε να τα δουλεύετε άνετα για κάθε διαδικασία SID, STAR, HOLD’s κτλ. Αν θέλετε όμως, παρακάμπτετε  τα FMS και κάνετε κλασικό VOR-VOR. Το σκάφος επίσης είναι πιστοποιημένο και για CAT 2 approaches.  ‘Όπως θα διαβάσετε κάτω σε μια από της ανακοινώσεις τους στο FB, θα συνεχιστεί το development κ θα προστεθούν και άλλες επιλογές FMS/GPS όπως το UNS-1, GTN750 κτλ.

„As the 146 was originally launched with only the means for conventional (VOR/NDB) navigation, and later retrofitted with a variety of GPS/FMS units for greater flexibility. Our 146 will release with an FMS that is based on the popular WT unit, modified for suitability with the 146 avionics and autopilot, providing full LNAV functionality, SID/STARs, MSFS and SimBrief flight plan support etc. As with all our MSFS aircraft, we will continue to introduce new features over time, including different FMS/GPS units such as the commonly fitted UNS-1 and even the GTN 750 (as fitted to some current firefighting 146 aircraft), providing you with even greater customisability of your aircraft.”

Υπάρχει ένα manual στα αγγλικά με περίπου 250 σελίδες όπου εξηγούνται όλα στην εντέλεια. Πριν κάνετε κάποια αγορά, μπορείτε να κατεβάσετε το manual και ελεύθερα από σύνδεσμο στο κάτω μέρος της σελίδας του product page
