Just Flight has taken to their Facebook Page to share a new set of previews of their upcoming rendition of a BAe 146 for X-Plane 11. The aircraft was originally developed for Prepar3D, and it now being converted to X-Plane 11.
The previews are showcasing both the interior and exterior of the aircraft including the operational menus and the EFB with AviTab integration that will be present in the aircraft. All ten previews that were included in the post can be seen below in a gallery.
The post mentioned, that the development is reaching the final stages. The developer has for the first time mentioned their targetted release date which was said to be “sometime next month“. It was though made clear, that this target is not guaranteed.
A big discussion is beign held in the community on the topic of the FMC that should be featured in the aircraft. While the Prepar3D variant of the aircraft has a fully custom-coded FMS from the developers, the X-Plane 11 will feature only the default FMC upon the release.
Just Flight has further addressed this topic, and reassured the community, that they are still looking into custom-coded FMS for the X-Plane 11 variant though it will not be available upon release.
A closer release date is yet unknown. The same applies to the pricing details.
The little quad-engine aircraft was a little uncommon but welcome sight in our skies from the 80s until the 2010s, while rare you can still see some, mostly in Iran. As a reminder, Just Flight is cooperating with Thranda on this project, and we will see the three passenger variants of the 146, being -100, -200 and -300.
