The latest verison of the popular XFirstOfficer plugin for X-Plane 11 has been released. Developer ParrotSim took to the X-Plane forums to make the announcement, as well as to explain the numerous changes made to the freeware software.
XFirstOfficer can best be explained as X-Plane’s answer to FS2Crew in that it aims to fully simulate an intelligent and dynamic virtual copilot within you favourite aircraft. The simulation involved is extensive and the copilot is able to perform a multitude of functions including but not limited to reading checklists, monitoring background parameters, turning knobs to a specified value, toggling switches, extracting FMC data, pushing buttons and reading callouts. ParrotSim have even gone so far as to allow the copilot to perform a number of non-normal prodcedures, an exmaple of which can be seen below.
