Further Development Information on the BlueBird Simulation 757 for MSFS

Learn even more about the upcoming 757 from BlueBird Simulations.

Just a few days ago, we saw some new screenshots from BlueBird Simulations’ upcoming 757 for Microsoft Flight Simulator. Now, Just Flight has put together the first development blog that gives us even more information on what to expect from this exciting project.

The development blog over on the Just Flight website gives us the first concrete details on what to expect from the package. We now know that two variants of the 757 will be included in the initial release: the 757-200 and the 757-300. Both variants will come with Rolls Royce and Pratt and Whitney engines. Furthermore, we know that the passenger versions of the initial release will use CRT screens. A freighter version and upgraded flight deck layout will come in the future.

In terms of system depth, the team says that we can expect a realistic VNAV and FMC, custom-coded hydraulic, electrical and fuel systems. Alongside this, there will be realistic flight dynamics for each variant and will have been tested by real-world 757 pilots and crew. It’s worth noting that the product isn’t intended to be a ‘study-level’ airliner, but instead will be a “mid-level complexity aircraft which will be more complex than the default airliners.”

Since we saw the original announcement back in February, the virtual cockpit has seen an extensive amount of work. Progress on the systems has been steady, whilst the exterior model is only half complete at this point.

We can expect new development updates from both BlueBird Simulations and Just Flight every 4-6 weeks. Be sure to keep your eyes peeled on FSElite and we’ll keep you updated throughout the development of the upcoming 757 on Microsoft Flight Simulator.

Check out the original announcement post and after that, the images released earlier this week.
