146 Professional Update From Just Flight


Just Flight have released a few more details and screen shots oftheir 146 Professional for P3D (X-Plane version coming soon):

Following on from their award-winning L-1011 Tristar Professional,Hawk T1/A Advanced Trainer and PA-28 family of aircraft, this all-newand highly detailed simulation of the 146 regional jet is beingdeveloped by Just Flight's in-house team following comprehensive,hands-on research with a real-life aircraft, G-JEAO, which retiredfrom service with British European Airways in 2000 and is nowpreserved at the de Havilland Aircraft Museum.


Just Flight are excited to bring you the 146 "Whisper Jet",featuring the 100, 200 and 300 series of this classic Britishairliner. The design process of what was to become the 146-100 beganunder Hawker Siddeley in 1973 where the iconic high T-tail, shortundercarriage, four engines and distinctive airbrake were chosen toproduce a regional airliner with short-field performance and quietoperation. The 146-100 first flew in 1981, followed by the stretched200 series in 1982 and 300 series in 1988.


The exterior models are stunningly detailed, featuring 4096textures for incredible clarity and the latest Physical BasedRendering (PBR) material technology to produce realistic metallic,plastic and glass surfaces (requires Prepar3D v4.4 andabove). Realistic animations include trailing-edge flap mechanisms,spoilers and large tail-mounted airbrake, and all passenger and cargodoors.

Moving to the cockpit, the Captain, Co-Pilot and jump-seatpositions are modelled with hundreds of functional switches, knobs andcontrols. The extensive overhead panel features custom-codedhydraulic, electrical, fuel and pressurisation systems, and thecockpit is also fitted with a functional Thrust Management System(TMS) and authentic navigation equipment.

The 146 was flown all around the world and a variety of airlineliveries from the UK, USA, Australia, Canada, Germany and othernations will be included.
