A short time ago, IXEG released an update to their highly acclaimed 737 Classic for X-Plane. This update brings some visual enhancements, along with improved systems and realism logic.
The X-Plane 11 model receives glass reflective surfaces, and a tweaked flight model for a new downwash effect – something they say will bring a “mild nose-down effect when close to ground, as in reality”.
Universally, across the XP10 and XP11 models, simmers can expect FMS stability bug-fixes, stick shakers sounds near/below stall AOA, improved handling of go-around situations, and possible FPS increases from an updated Gizmo plugin.
For the full change-log, see the bottom of this post.
This update is available to all existing owners of the aircraft free of charge, and can be downloaded via X-Aviation immediately.
