Unique features of the P3D rendition
FSLabs’ BAC Concorde features an authentic flight model that operates with exceptional fidelity to real-world performance data, an array of special effects such as reheat visuals, dynamic cockpit, cabin, and external lighting, advanced VOLMET simulation for tuning into European VHF stations and global HF stations, and a collection of more than 45 authentic Concorde liveries. The product also features external device support for INS and the HP200LX palmtop computer for planning flights, monitoring them, printing route briefings, and pre-file with online networks like VATSIM.
Furthermore, the aircraft is built on an entirely new visual model and features the revolutionary new Virtual Crew System that meticulously recreates the First Officer and Flight Engineer roles. A brand-new sound set also captures the nuances of the four Olympus 593 MKII engines incorporating authentic recordings from the aircraft’s final year of service. The developers have also individually crafted 100 routes to choose from and fly complete with a briefing, essential paperwork, load sheets, refuelling sheets, and more.
The Aérospatiale/BAC Concorde
The Aérospatiale/BAC Concorde is a retired Franco-British supersonic airliner jointly developed and manufactured by Sud Aviation (later Aérospatiale) and the British Aircraft Corporation. The aircraft is tailless with a narrow fuselage permitting four-abreast seating for 92 to 128 passengers. It features an ogival delta wing and a droop nose for landing visibility. It is powered by four Rolls-Royce/Snecma Olympus 593 turbojets with variable engine intake ramps, and reheat for take-off and acceleration to supersonic speed. Constructed out of aluminium, it was the first airliner to feature analog fly-by-wire controls.
