Captain Sim 757 Freighter Expansion Released for Prepar3D v4

Y574 Feature 2000×837

After entering beta not too long ago, Captain Sim has finally released their much-anticipated 757 Captain III Freighter Expansion for Prepar3D v4.

The Freighter Expansion is the second add-on, along with the RR Expansion to further enhance the base pack which is required prior to purchasing the Freighter Expansion. In the features list, Captain Sim vaguely claim, in their features list that the freighter model comes with Rolls-Royce engine variants without the need for the RR Expansion pack, however, we’re left scratching our heads at that one.

The 757 Freighter Expansion is packed with features such as three different aircraft types accompanied by eleven-different engine types, TFDi’s TrueGlass, an integrated GPU, custom FMC setup varying on engine variation and more which can be viewed in the features list at the end of this article.

You can grab a hold of the 757 Captain III Freighter Expansion over at Captain Sim’s store for a price of $49.99 (Excl. VAT). This version is only for Prepar3D v4, we can only assume that the 32bit version is soon to follow. The 757 Captain III base pack is required for this expansion to work.
