Just Flight Releases PA-38 Tomahawk for X-Plane 11

Just Flight Pa 38 Tomahawk (1)

Just Flight has released their PA-38 Tomahawk for X-Plane 11. Developed in partnership with Thranda Design, the PA-38 is a two-seater, piston-engine aircraft that is suited to aircraft touring and flight training. The aircraft has been developed after having hands-on research with a real-life Tomahawk in the UK.

As usual, Just Flight spared no expense on the details and the product will feature 4K texturing, PBR effects, a custom-coded electrical and fuel system and much more. It will be compatible with the Reality GTN750 and also feature interactive check-lists, logbooks and incorporate various options based on what the user desires. You can find the whole list down below.

You can buy the Just Flight PA-38 Tomahawk on X-Plane 11 from Just Flight now for £27.99.

For those that use FSX/P3D, Just Flight released the PA38 Tomahawk for those platforms a few weeks ago.

Product Features

Model

  • Accurately modelled PA-38 Tomahawk, built using real-world aircraft plans and comprehensive photography of the real aircraft
  • Numerous animations including multi-animation passenger doors that, when open, respond to G-forces and air resistance
  • Ground equipment including chocks and tie-downs
  • 4096×4096 textures are used to produce the highest possible texture clarity
  • PBR (Physically Based Rendering) materials with real-time environment reflections for superb quality and realism
  • Detailed normal mapping for down-to-the-rivet precision of aircraft features

Cockpit

  • A truly 3D virtual cockpit right down to accurately modelled seat belts and screw heads – every instrument is constructed fully in 3D with smooth animations
  • Cockpit textures feature wear and tear based on reference photos taken in the real aircraft to produce an authentic environment
  • Dimmable cockpit lighting
  • Interactive engine start checklist that responds to user inputs and sim variables
  • Interactive checklists for every stage of flight
  • Panel state system which will automatically save the panel state whenever a flight is saved and reload the panel state whenever that flight is loaded
  • Aircraft configuration system that will allow you to choose between ‘cold & dark’ or ‘ready for take-off’
  • Fully functional and comprehensive IFR-capable avionics fit including:
    – GMA 340 audio selector
    – SL30 COM1/NAV1 radio
    – SL40 COM2 radio
    – GTX 328 transponder
    – Support for Reality GTN750 (sold separately, Windows only)
  • Flight computer panel with useful information such as fuel burn, endurance, speed and wind speed/direction
  • Interactive logbook panel for logging your flight details (X-Plane native)
  • GoodWay compatible
  • Option to activate flashlight from within pop-up window, to aid in those pitch-black cold and dark starts at night
  • Option to remove window and instrument reflection effects
  • Functional throttle quadrant tensioning system
  • Radio knob animations routed through plugin logic, for optimum movement fidelity and sound synchronisation

Aircraft systems

  • Custom-coded fuel system, including the option of automatic fuel tank switching for use on those long-distance cross-country flights (this option is remembered for future flights)
  • Custom-coded electrical system with functional circuit breakers. Circuit breaker logic is linked to X-Plane’s internal failure logic, so if the plane is set to fail a certain electrical component after a certain number of hours, the circuit breaker for that element will pop out.
  • Functioning carburettor and primer controls
  • Dedicated interactive engine pop-up window displaying values such as fuel tank weights and imbalance, fuel pressure, oil pressure, oil temperature, battery charge (with quick charge option), and information about spark plug fouling and vapour lock condition
  • Simulated vapour lock condition, with warning pop-up and suggested actions
  • Simulated spark plug fouling condition, with indication of percentage of fouling
  • Custom external light logic with custom strobe light pattern and custom light halos for added realism

Liveries
The PA-38 Tomahawk will be supplied with ten liveries:

  • G-BNKH (UK)
  • G-BMVL (UK)
  • G-BNNU (UK)
  • N2432G (USA)
  • N7803Q (USA)
  • D-EEQI (Germany)
  • C-GTAO (Canada)
  • F-HVFA (France)
  • PH-MEC (Netherlands)
  • VH-UFA (Australia)

Other features

  • Realistic and accurate flight dynamics based on real-world performance and handling data, and input from pilots
  • Authentic sound set, generated using X-Plane’s state-of-the-art FMOD sound system
  • Custom sounds for switches, doors, warnings and more, featuring accurate location placement of sounds in the stereo spectrum, 3D audio effects, atmospheric effects, adaptive Doppler, exterior sounds spill in when window or door(s) are opened, different sound characteristics depending on viewing angle etc.
  • Comprehensive manual with panel guide and performance data
  • PSD Paint Kit included so you can create your own paint schemes
  • Dedicated pop-up window for sound mixing, allowing for individual adjustment of the volume of exterior sounds, in-cockpit sounds and various effects
  • Custom weight and balance manager window
