    Aerosoft - English Electric Lightning F6 for FSX/P3D Updated

    Aerosoft announces an updated v2.3.0.0 for their English Electric Lightning F6 for FSX and Prepar3D. A bonus model of the F2A has been added and the aircraft is also now compatible with P3D v4 and v5.

    About Aerosoft English Electric Lightning

    The English Electric Lightning was designed in the late 1950's as an interceptor. This class of aircraft had to have great speed and even better climb speed to intercept the Russian bombers before they could reach their targets.

    With the latest version comes a new model of the Lightning F2A, and the F53 model is also included. All F6 customers receive these models for free.

    The F6 version in this product is not an easy aircraft to fly. It’s complex and full of systems you have to manage without the aid of modern electronics. Landing especially is hard as the landing speed is awfully high and there are many things you have to check. Aircraft of this type are rare for Flight Simulator and we feel the Lightning fills a niche that needed filling.
