FlyJSim Preview Upcoming 727 Version 3 Update

727 V3 June 01 (2 Of 56)

FlyJSim is arguably one of the best aircraft development groups on the X-Plane platform, having given the community a great variety of classic airliners over the years including the Dash-8 Q400, 727 Series, and the recently updated 732 Twinjet.

Flash forward to today, and FJS is getting ready to release the long-awaited update to the classic tri-engined airliner, the Boeing 727. The current version 2 was released back in 2016, just prior to the release of X-Plane 11, and therefore suffers a lack visual and audible goodies that we’ve come to expect alongside high-quality aircraft simulations nowadays. With the upcoming version 3, the developers are aiming to address these issues in order to maintain the high standards that we’ve come to expect from their products.

In an e-mail to industry media outlets, FlyJSim has previewed and detailed the upcoming update with a wide selection of screenshots, along with an exciting feature list to salivate over. Check out these fantastic shots, and make sure to check the full gallery at the bottom of this post.

The big-ticket items coming to Version 3 of the 727 Series are as follows;

  • Upgraded flight model for all three variants to suit X-Plane 11
  • PBR texture upgrades inside and out
  • Updated cockpit manipulators and additional mouse wheel support
  • Upgraded support for the X-Plane 11 native FMC
  • Updated menus, similar to the FJS 732 Twinjet Pro
  • Upgraded maintenance system
  • Upgraded pressurization system
  • New enhanced replay system, similar to the FJS 732 Twinjet
  • Highly immersive FMOD sounds

No word just yet on when we can expect the release of this gorgeous new version, but FlyJSim are attending FSExpo next weekend, so there’s every chance that we may see a release during the expo.

Keep your eyes on FSElite during the expo, as we’ll be there all weekend to keep you posted on all of the new releases and announcements!
