FlightFactor Shares New Previews of 787 Pro


Developer FlightFactor has shared an additional number of previews for their upcoming 787 Pro for X-Plane 11. The progress comes from their 3D team and highlights improvements made over the past few previews we have seen from the team. We’ve seen numerous previews of the 787 Pro since the initial announcement of the aircraft back in September 2020.

On Twitter, FlightFactor has said that the new renders showcase the improved compass area, improved HUD and other small details. Regardless, it’s always worth noting that this is a work-in-progress model and is still subject to changes. All of the renders are below.

Not only have we seen static renders, FlightFactor last showed us some of the animations that will be found in the aircraft in the future.

FlightFactor otherwise remains quiet on how development is going and how other elements of the aircraft are coming along. However, be sure to stay tuned to FSElite so we can keep you updated on the plane’s development.

FlightFactor Updates A320 Ultimate For Vulkan

A320 2020 07 04 12.27.58

Just this week, X-Plane aircraft developer FlightFactor have released a new update to their A320 Ultimate aircraft and brought it to version 1.0.7 with numerous changes, but to give the weekend a TOGA take-off, they have officially update the plane through beta 1.0.8 to add full support with X-Plane 11’s new graphics rendering system, Vulkan. This means that the aircraft should now be able to overcome any past issues with the X-Plane 11.50 Beta and the Vulkan rendering system.

While the update brings a pretty major change, it is important to note that this is a beta and that things may not work as intended for all users and there may be bugs, so installing is at the users own risk.

To check out more details on the FlightFactor A320 Ultimate and the new update you can head over to the forums and join the ongoing discussion about the aircraft.

As a reminder, you may view the full changelog for version 1.0.7 of aircraft here.

You can pick up the FlightFactor A320 Ultimate from the store for $79.95 USD.
