• New BAC One-Eleven & HS Trident Sound Packs For FSX & FS2004

    They weren't the most powerful .... but .... were certainly among "the noisiest" aircraft engines at T/O .... and they powered some of the best of British civil aviation developed during the 1960's.

    They're gone now from both UK and European skies, but, their sound echos on within the memory of those whom recall them .... and having ever heard them once (especially those living close to airport perimeters) who could possibly ever forget them.

    They were "the little British engine that could" .... the RR SPEY turbofan .... and it powered both BAC ONE-ELEVEN and HS TRIDENT jetliners ....

    And now their unmistakable voice has been resurrected for FS and like never before.

    Having already launched "PART 1" of his very successful RR SPEY sound pack project focused on the RR SPEY 511 for the BAC ONE-ELEVEN 300/400 and TRIDENT 1 .... talented and internationally respected FS sound engineer Benoit PLAMONDON now has pleasure releasing "PART 2" of this project .... this time featuring RR SPEY 512 audio in the form of separate soundpacks especially for the BAC ONE-ELEVEN 475/500 and TRIDENT 2/3 .... once again for FS2004 and FSX use .... and representing more than 3 years of work so far and with1 further RR SPEY related audio project (for the BAC ONE ELEVEN 200) currently under development.

    Compiled from actual interior and exterior recordings of these aircraft, these soundpacks have been fine tuned for exclusive use with the superb BAC ONE-ELEVEN and TRIDENT simulations by David MALTBY .... easily still some of the very best freeware simulations available today and among which both the COMET and VC-10 are also represented.

    As has been Benoit's preference trademark over recent years .... these latest soundpacks have been produced as separate flight deck and cabin/wing view based audio productions .... allowing one to immerse oneself in whichever perspective is ones particular audio preference.

    All flight deck based audio files are suffixed "FD". These particular soundpacks are intended for those whom seek high-quality audio based exclusively upon what's heard from a "flightdeck perspective" only .... and with high fidelity external sound added. What's heard on the flightdeck is quite different from the PAX cabin environment aboard any jetliner. For e.g .... when using this particular soundpack one will be treated to the predominant sounds of flightdeck based avionics, and wind noise in proportion to aircraft acceleration with very little engine noise being audible, and when selecting the flaps and landing gear one will only hear "clicking" of the associated levers .... and a whole lot more.

    All wing view/cabin based audio files are suffixed "WV". These particular soundpacks are intended for those whom prefer high-quality audio based exclusively upon what's heard from a "PAX cabin perspective" only .... and with the same high fidelity external sound added also. What's heard within the PAX cabin is quite different from the flightdeck environment aboard any jetliner. For e.g .... when using this particular soundpack one will be treated to the predominant sound of cabin air conditioning and a different type wind noise in proportion to aircraft acceleration and with a little more audible engine noise too, and when selecting the flaps and landing gear one will only hear the associated flap motors along with the muffled "rumble" of the landing gear being extended .... and a whole lot more too.

    Once again .... an important technical detail that must be appreciated when using "FD/flightdeck" versions of either of these soundpacks .... in the case of aircraft fitted with rear-mounted engines (as indeed is the case with the BAC ONE-ELEVEN and HS TRIDENT ) .... very little interior engine noise, at all, is evident on the flightdeck of these particular aircraft .... whereas in FS exterior viewing mode the raw/unmuffled "L-O-U-D-N-E-S-S" of these engines, at T/O, has been faithfully reproduced, and with such a degree of authenticity that the only missing ingredients are the warm feel of jet blast air and strong smell of burnt kerosene

    During their day RR SPEY powered BAC ONE-ELEVEN and HS TRIDENT aircraft generated more than their fair share of complaints from noise-conscious environmental protesters around both the UK and Europe and which, by the 1970's and 80's, saw the introduction of Hush Kits (for the BAC ONE-ELEVEN's at least) .... but .... as vociferously as communities lobbied against the noise of these aircraft/engines, back then, such complaints are something the authenticity of these fine soundpacks will be unlikely to generate, given ever increasing demands by the FS community for greater .... and yet greater .... realism. Therefore these new BAC ONE-ELEVEN and HS TRIDENT soundpacks for FS2004 and FSX too (separate soundpack versions for each FS platform) .... are truly, and from an virtual audio perspective, as good as FS audio ever gets.

    Each one of these "NEW" and "HIGH QUALITY" soundpacks is available for download from FLIGHTSIM.COM. Use each of the above referenced file names or search "Benoit Plamondon".

    The BAC One-Eleven and HS Trident simulations can be downloaded from the following web site address:

    Currently in production and planned for future release are RR Spey 506 sound packs tailored for the DMFS BAC One-Eleven 200.

      TOTALLY AGREE! The Hawker Siddeley Trident and BAe One-Eleven aircraft for FS2004 by Dave Maltby are some of the best Freeware around if you are into aircraft of this genre. I have the Trident myself and until 2016 had the BAe One-Eleven and have thoroughly enjoyed them both. The sound packages are awesome as are the exhaust effects of the Rolls-Royce Spey low bypass turbofans. Would just like to mention though that Dave Maltby's Vickers VC10 is another of his excellent offerings for the same reasons as these two aircraft are. Available from the DM Flight Sim Historic Aircraft website.

      Benoit's actually made similar themed RR CONWAY soundpacks for the DMFS VC-10's too .... and for both FS2004 and FSX specific use also .... each of which are available right here at FS.COM

      Just search "Benoit Plamondon"

      A great addition and great work by Benoit. Thank you very much. I only fly the 475/500 and occasionally the 200. The Maltby BAC-111 is also in my view still an outstanding freeware or indeed sim aircraft, even better than recent payware models about (I know I bought it then parked it in the hangar).

      To have the authentic sounds to match the model type is just great and will ensure this model continues on for a long time to come. Looking forward to the 200 set when they become available.
