After an extensive wait, Just Flight has finally posted its latest development update for its upcoming Fokker F70/F100 for MSFS.
For those not familiar with the Fokker F70 and F100, they are both narrow-body, twin-engine aircraft developed by the now-defunct Dutch aircraft manufacturer Fokker. Like the MD-80 family, the F70 and F100 feature a t-tail, meaning the horizontal stabilizer is mounted to the top of the tail fin, and engines mounted at the rear of the fuselage. The F100 entered airline service first in 1988, with the shortened F70 entering service in 1993. Despite both aircraft’s production ended in 1997, the type is still flying for a select number of airlines around the world.
Since the last development update, Just Flight has made significant progress on the aircraft’s modeling and texturing, performance optimizations, and the systems’ coding. With so much exciting news, Just Flight decided to focus this update on the wide array of door configurations and virtual cabins that will be available in the F100. There will be four different configurations, each including a different size cargo door and the inclusion or exclusion of airstairs and service doors.
Moving on to the virtual cabins, the default configuration will be a 2+3 seating layout with gray leather seats, white headrests, and blue carpeting. However, all of these items will be customizable with the included paint kit, and Just Flight is exploring the idea of personalized cabins for specific airline liveries included in the package. Just Flight also plans to bring over the popular music reproducer featured in their F28.
Looking forward, Just Flight will work on improving the cabin modeling and door configurations while implementing features like cabin lighting. From there, the team will work to bring these features to the F70. Overall, it is exciting to see that the F70/F100 project is still moving forward, and it will be interesting to see what features are unveiled in the coming weeks.
