Update @ 21:00z – An update from TFDi:
Before this becomes more than it is – Joshua C has been working on collecting research on his own. We have NOT made this an official TFDi Design project – although the Embraer is/was one of the many things on the table, it’s just a discussion/research point. Our primary focus at the moment is getting the 717 to where it needs to be – then, and only then, we will begin pressing onward fully with whatever our next project may be. Thank you for the support and feedback on the project, though – it’s been noted.
-President, TFDi Design
User JoshChe, known for his involvement with the TFDi 717, was spotted asking for real life Embraer pilots over on Reddit. His particular question was about someone being able to take a picture of the cockpit of an Embraer 17x/19x. Usually TFDi developers go by a flair to recognise them on Reddit, though said flair was missing this time.
This image was also released with it.
Though we are not sure what this means, it would be very good news to see someone develop an Embraer for the FSX/P3D platform. A high-quality alternative is rather lacking for this popular jet.
We have reached out to Josh (the other one!) from the TFDi team and he confirmed that this is a side project from JoshChe and not associated with TFDi at all. So before you start to panic, the new update for the 717 is still coming (and quite nicely so I hear).
If we hear any more from the project, we’ll keep you guys posted.
Thanks to FSElite reader Ben for pointing this out to us.
