X-Plane Previews

Just Flight Shares Video Preview of the 146 Professional on XPL

Those of you are who are excited for the upcoming 146 Professional on X-Plane 11 will be pleased to know that a short teaser video of the aircraft in action has been released by Just Flight. The new in-development video highlights various features and elements of the upcoming aircraft.

The 2-minute video is a good tease of what you can expect from the aircraft once it does land. The video shows us the custom sounds being used for the aircraft, along with how the user can interact with the plane to adjust elements such as the autopilot and the various dials. Furthermore, the video shows a very quick engine start-up sequence, along with a take-off to give you a flavour of the plane. Engine effects are used to simulate the heat from the exhaust whilst animations are used effectively to show the engines running. You can watch the full teaser video above.

The aircraft is currently still in development as it is brought across from the already-released Prepar3D version. No release dates have since been set as to not disappoint following the delays the aircraft has seen in recent weeks. That said, stay tuned to FSElite so we can keep you updated with the latest.

The product page for Just Flight’s 146 Professional is online now with the latest information and you can also sign up to get a newsletter notification once the aircraft has been released.

155478399 880210935889051 488044830328780913 O

Developer ToLiss has shared a long-awaited updated for their upcoming A340-600 aircraft for X-Plane 11. The new previews are part of an anniversary special being held by ToLiss in celebration of their A319 and A321 releases.

The new previews of the long-haul Airbus jet highlight the completed cockpit 3D modelling. Whilst the cockpit is still missing many textures, things are in progress to create an authentic-looking Airbus A340-600. In addition, the team confirmed that animations are also in development. Also, we can see that modelling on the virtual cabin is also underway with various classes in the cabin and even the lower-deck galley/toilet area found on specific aircraft.

In regards to the systems, performance handling tuning is complete, but there is still plenty of work to go before the aircraft will be ready for people to use in the sim.

Finally, it was confirmed that the target release date is currently the second half of 2021. There is still plenty of work to be done, but to see the quad-engine jet for the sim this far into development is reassuring for those ready to explore new destinations in the aircraft.

Stick with FSElite to stay up-to-date on the ToLiss A340-600.
