Developer FlightFactor has taken to Twitter to confirm that two new open beta updates are available for two of their aircraft. Update 2.4.0 is available for the 757, whereas version 1.3.4 is available for the 767.

The update for both aircraft features a significant number of changes. For the 757, the C-32 varient has been added to both the Extended and Global packages. For both aircraft, popups/popouts for EICASes and original displays have been added based on user feedback. Additionally, both the 757 and the 767 updates add TO STEP CLIMB and TO E/D lines to the progress page, engine vibration failures and logic and much more. The full change log is below.

This update is dubbed as a public beta so users are warned to take note of that before installation. The way to grab the updates isn’t made clear from the Twitter message, but we are assuming that the update can be grabbed from your store account. Editor’s Note: If anyone has further details, please get in touch.

New Public BETA version of 757 and 767 has been released! Nice new C-32 fuselage with new cabin and popups/popouts for EICASes and original displays!

FlightFactor has shared some new 3D renders on their Twitter page of an upcoming expansion to their popular Boeing 757 package. The renders show the interior of the Boeing C-32, complete with luxurious chairs, folding tables and even a work table that seems to feature some equipment (phone, headsets).
