Just Flight 146 Professional Previews

Just Flight has shared some of their final previews for the year and has concluded by showcasing some all-new images for their upcoming 146 Professional. The aircraft, coming to Prepar3D V4 in 2020 will feature PBR materials, numerous animations and much more.

The new previews from Just Flight are some of the cockpit and exterior modelling. It has been confirmed that the cockpit is “pretty much complete,” with work still in progress on the exterior modelling.

Further to the previews, the product page has been slightly updated. It is reconfirmed that the package will include the 146-100, 146-200 and the 146-300. Much like other Just Flight products as of late, the aircraft will also feature custom-coded systems such as LNAV, IAS hold, a panel state system, an interactive checklist and much more. You can find out more on the product page via Just Flight’s website.
