Aerosoft Announces Upcoming CRJ Update

Aerosoft has announced that the long awaited update to their CRJ 700/900 aircraft is on the way. In a post on their forum, the developers said that update 1.0.5 is in the final stages of testing and, if all goes well, it will be available within a few days.

The post included a long list of fixes including solving sound problems with the APU, adding several left mouse button click spots for push buttons in the cockpit, and correcting the reverser spool-up so that it is now working again.

The full change log can be viewed below.

It should be noted that the 64-bit version of this update requires P3D v4.2 or higher.
