One of the most popular aircraft on X-Plane 11 has seen a brand new update that addresses multiple fixes and changes has been released. The Hot Start TBM 900 was originally released in October 2018 and has seen numerous updates since. This update is fairly significant bringing in new features such new glass texture work for nicer reflections, an implementation of screen brightness and also printable checklists in PDF format.
Along with the new features, several additions have been added including reworked airfoils, an adjustment of the stalling performance to better match the “book numbers” as well as corrected CG offsets. Accommodating the improvements is a vast list of bug fixes including VOR intercepts, modeling issues and much more.
The full update can be installed via installing a fresh copy of the plane, which involves downloading a new install from X-Aviation. If you don’t own a copy of the aircraft (which won our Community Choice Award for Best Small Aircraft), you can buy it from X-Aviation for $64.95.
