LES Saab 340A Updated to v1.5, Adds XP11 Compatibility

X-Plane isn’t known for having many regional turboprop simulations available. We have the FJS Dash-8 Q400, which divides opinion throughout the community on how good or bad it is, we have the ancient Aerosoft ATR-72 which still somehow manages to work well in X-Plane 11 without much issue, and we have this – the LES Saab 340A which has been missing from our lives since X-Plane 11 became available and broke all of our favourite aircraft from X-Plane 10.

Leading Edge Simulations (LES) has made available the v1.5 update for their excellent simulation of the Saab 340A regional turboprop. Many airlines use this Swedish-built airliner for shorter routes throughout the world, and now it’s available for you to do the same in X-Plane 11.

The v1.5 update adds the obvious; XP11 compatibility, but also includes a small handful of changes, bugfixes and additions, including:

  • Fixed a bug with CRS 2 Dial
  • Re-coded the CRS1 logic to better handle the GPS course adjustment
  • Fixed a bug in the pump timer logic to test if timer is active prior to initialization
  • New tiller hydraulic on/off button command added
  • Fixed a bug within the sound code
  • Fixed autopilot from oscillating in X-Plane 11
  • Reduced take off trim
  • Changed radius of gyration for X-Plane 11
  • Adjusted engine PID logic
  • Adjusted ITT Temperatures
  • Aileron trim adjustments for X-Plane 11
  • Added PBR and new normal maps for X-Plane 11
  • Adjustments to glass objects and textures for X-Plane 11

Existing customers can download this new update for free through the X-Aviation store. If now seems like the time to get on board with this highly rated turboprop, you can grab it for USD$49.95 from the X-Aviation store.
