AD Simulation Releases CRJ700 for X-Plane 11

After years of development, multiple team breakdowns, and no lights at the end of the tunnel, AD Simulation and DeltaWing Simulations have released their rendition of the Bombardier CRJ700 series for X-Plane 11.

The addon offers accurately modelled systems based on the real aircraft, high-resolution and crip display recreations in the flight deck, and fully custom cockpit lighting recreated up to the highest details.

There is also an EFB in the flight deck, and custom FMOD sounds were prepared by the developers from AD Simulations for the user to enjoy and immerse in the virtual world of flight simulation.

The aircraft was developed in cooperation with real-world pilots and enthusiasts to make the most of the addon. However, unfortunately, it does not still offer a fully custom FMS, but rather a customized one based on the default FMS.

There are also a few interactive elements featured in the addon. These include, for example, animated stairs and cockpit shaders. Other than that, the aircraft also offers 4K textures, accurate exterior and interior models, including a 3D cabin, and a realistic wing flex.

The complete feature list can be found below.

The CRJ700 from AD Simulation and DeltaWing Simulations can be purchased through the X-Plane.org Store for a decent price of $49.95. Thus, about €44.20.

Feature list

Systems

  • Systems are modeled based on real life CRJ-700 aircraft. 5 CRJ real life pilots and few simulator enthusiasts were helping us to develop and make them work just like in real life.
  • Flight Control Panel knobs support fast scrolling via left mouse button press and hold and precise scrolling via mouse wheel scroll
  • Mode Control Panel SPEED and other modes simulate the real Autopilot modes on the CRJs. The screens are as close to the real ones as possible.

Center Glareshield

  • All Center Glareshield Knobs and Pushbuttons animated and functional

DISPLAYS

  • Displays are exceptionally crisp and with letters and symbols easily visible
  • PFD Primary Flight Display is modeled exactly as real life counterpart
  • MFD Multifunction Display can display following modes
    •    HSI The horizontal situation indicator shows the compass card with overlaid selectable navaids, bearing and course pointers
    •    NAV SECTOR Navigation display with compass card and a background map. The navigation display shows course pointer and deviation bar. VOR bearing and DME distance information is shown
    •    FMS MAP  Flight Management System Map shows the track and waypoints programmed in the CDU (Control Display Unit). FMS MAP shows the aircraft heading.
    •    TCAS Traffic Alert and Collision Avoidance System investigates the air traffic control transponders of nearby airplanes and identifies and displays potential and predicted collision threats.
    •    FMS PLAN MAP shows programmed waypoints of the route. Shows north at the top of the display. Waypoints can be selected by using UP and DOWN arrows on CDU (Control Display Unit)
    •    RADAR– to be implemented in future versions

EICAS (ENGINE INDICATION AND CREW ALERTING SYSTEM Displays. Following displays can be shown using ECP (EICAS CONTROL PANEL)

  • PRI
  • STAT
  • ECS
  • HYD
  • ELEC (AC and DC)

Skunks Updater

  • To be implemented in the future

Cockpit Lighting

There is FULL lighting implemented, FLOOD, INTEGRATED and DISPLAYS with animated knobs and switches. You can adjust the intensity of displays, panels and light in any combination you like. In addition CABIN LIGHTS and STAIR LIGHTS are also adjustable via corresponding switches in the back of the cockpit

  • Weather sounds: Wind, Rain, Thunder, Wind Gust (on the ground only)
  • Cabin and Cockpit muffing effect caused by Cockpit Door closed/open

Flight Model

  • Flight model has been carefully adjusted to match the real life CRJ-700. Real life CRJ-200/700/900 pilots were involved in the process.

Realistic wing flex

  • Almost all maps are 4K High Resolution
  • Exterior is modeled with all details existing in real aircraft.
  • Pilots are visible in external views and turn thir heads slightly to ward camera view
  • Interior modeling has been made paying attention to details in the real life CRJ-700 cockpit.
  • Cabin and Stairs have adjustable lighting
