Aerosoft released an update for the CRJ Professional Series to version 2.2.0.0 (Service Pack 1).

The update brings with it many necessary features such as new models, new modeling, updated systems, optional vertical navigation, all-new graphics using PBR, and an Electronic Flight Bag with support for charts, checklists, and calculations.

Service Pack 1 is the initial release for P3D V5. You can find our initial release article for the CRJ here and our First Look video here.

A few additions that Aerosoft has made in this new service pack include the use of FS2Crew trigger to connect/disconnect ground power and ground air carts, full Active Sky support along with Thrustmaster TCA Sidestick compatibility and numerous fixes.

For those who already own the CRJ 700/900/1000, an upgrade to the CRJ Professional will cost $23.38 excl. VAT.

Aerosoft CRJ Professional can be purchased via download for $74.99 excl.VAT.
