Update 02 Jan 18 @ 21:45z: Captain Sim has clarified that the release of the 757 Captain III is version 1. This is not a beta product. As clarified in this forum post, despite the Facebook poll asking if people would buy a beta, this is not the same build. Beta 4 was released to an in-house team to test. After that, version 0.9 was tested by the team. Version 1 is the first version to be available to the public.
They’re aware of some the bugs reported and are working on some fixes to resolve them.
Although only announced a few short weeks back, the team at Captainsim has released their anticipated 757 Captain III. The narrow-body airline from Boeing has proven to be a versatile aircraft with both power and range. The 757 is something sorely missed from the current catalogue of aircraft so to have it available in a modern era is most welcome.
As previously announced, the first member of the 757 family joining the pack will be the 757-2PW. Described as a ‘highly detailed and accurate digital replica’ of the Boeing 757-200 with PW2037 and PW2040 engines. It will feature a fully functional flight deck with advance systems, custom night lighting and ‘top-notch’ exterior modelling with 3D windows. There’s also high resolution textures, authentic sound sets, a repaint kit and all-new customer night lighting.
At this stage in time only one variant of the 757 is available however more are set to come. This will include the -200F and the -300 with both engine types.
You can buy the Captain Sim 757 Captain III direct from the Captain Sim website for $75.70; a steep price however hopefully it will show its value in the time to come. It is compatible with at this stage P3DV4.
