Just Flight Confirms Duchess Model 76 Available This Month For X-Plane 12

Just Flight has partnered with Thranda Design to craft the Duchess Model 76 for X-Plane 12, which stuns with its visual fidelity. Every rivet and panel line is faithfully reproduced, transporting you to the cockpit of this iconic aircraft. But the beauty goes beyond just surface level. The developers have gone to great lengths to ensure that the flight dynamics are as accurate as possible, using real-world data and performance specifications to deliver a true-to-life flying experience.

Whether you’re a seasoned pilot or a virtual aviation newcomer, the Duchess Model 76 caters to a wide range of skill levels. The included autopilot system takes care of the technical aspects, allowing you to focus on enjoying the scenery. For the more experienced sim pilot, the aircraft’s responsiveness and realistic flight dynamics offer a rewarding challenge.

The Duchess Model 76 will come with 7 high-quality liveries each with 8k textures, letting you choose from a classic passenger configuration to a sporty cargo variant. This adds an extra layer of customization and immersion to your flight experience.

With its stunning visuals, accurate flight dynamics, and diverse liveries, the Duchess Model 76 for X-Plane 12 is a must-have for any virtual pilot. So buckle up, fire up the engines, and prepare to experience the thrill of flight like never before.

With no firm release date or price, Just Flight has confirmed that the Duchess Model 76 will be released later this month, and will be available from the Just Flight store.
