Just Flight Shares New Previews for 146 Professional on P3D

Just Flight’s 146 Professional for Prepar3D has been in development for a while now, but the team have been very open to sharing in-development previews. That has continued as the team at Just Flight has shared new additional previews for their upcoming 146 Professional on Prepar3D.

The new previews are a mixture of shots from the internal and external of the aircraft and also showcase the new custom-coded FMS coming to the aircraft product.

As previously mentioned, the BAe 146, affectionately known as the ‘JumboLiner’, is a 4-engined short-haul aircraft built by British Aerospace between 1978 and 2001. nearly 390 aircraft were built to fly for airlines all over the globe such as Flybe, Continental Express, Australian Airlink and the Royal Airforce. In 2016 40 airframes were still in use.

Just Flight has included the 100/200/300 variants of the aircraft for P3D. Throughout the development process, JustFlight has been granted access to G-JEAO (seen below in Air France colours) an airframe currently preserved at the De Havilland aircraft museum and the Royal Flight’s ZE701 based at RAF Northolt.

On the product page over on Just Flight’s website, a full feature list has been shared highlighting the 4K textures, 3D cockpit animations, the functioning systems (such as the custom coded LNAV and IAS hold) along with a list of liveries coming to each model.

As we near the release, we’re sure there will be continued information and additional previews coming your way.
