Whiskeysim posted an article in NewsHey AeroSim members, looks like the Flight Factor boys have been working hard on version 2 of their Boeing 757. Currently the update is not released at the time of writing this. However den_rain has said the update will take a couple weeks for release which makes us think it will be ready and released with X-Plane 11. We can't wait to get our hands on this latest update! We'll keep you posted! Purchase & Download: Currently not available at the time of posting. Has been removed from the X-Plane store? Additional Information: General • Officially licensed by the Boeing © Corporation. • Suitable for beginners - Quick start(start with all systems ready), tutorial modes and auto procedures. • Great for advanced users - Complex systems are simulated. • Includes both Rolls-Royce and Pratt & Whitney engine types Custom cockpit interaction system • Adjustable modes for cockpit interaction, you chose what to use for clicks • Different cockpit interaction modes, with mouse wheel and right button support • In-cockpit tooltips from the manual - you click on the button and see portions of the manual on display • In-cockpit life datarefs for cockpit building Options • A very flexible architecture – you chose the set up • Different options for many avionics instruments including two types of FMC. • Options to composite your own EICAS, EADI and EHSI displays. • Most of the options that the real 757 fleet has are included. • Many additional options for sounds, cockpit interaction, effects etc. Interactive Checklists, Procedures, and auto-helper (Exclusive feature) • Full electronic interactive checklists and procedures with automatic action detection. • Automatic mode – a “helper” who performs all the actions for you, you just CHECK the items. • A tutorial which shows the user what to do and when. • An option to have a visual aid on what and when to do in procedures. Flight model • Accurate flight model, as close as it gets to real performance. Tested by real pilots. • An dynamic and customizable center of gravity that depends on actual cargo, passenger placement and burning fuel in flight. Fully Functional Professional FMS and EFIS System • Custom designed Flight Management Computer, integrated with other plane systems. • Terminal procedures from updatable database. • Two independent analogue instrument sets for captain and first officer. • Two independently simulated EFIS (EADI/EHSI configuration) for captain and first officer. • Dual-FMS with two independently working CDUs. • Working instrument comparators. • Triple IRS and triple symbol generator systems with realistic instrument source switching. • Dual air-data computers with custom failure modes and source switching. • Independent 2 nav and an ils receivers. • Realistic inertial and radio position updating, you can see the individual inaccuracies of those systems. • Triple-channel autopilot with realistic dependencies. • Fail operational and fail passive autoland with mode degradations based on system failures. • Load company routes generated by Professional Flight Planner X (or other compatible programs) directly into the FMC. • FMC can be used on external touchscreen or tablet, optimized for the Retina iPad. Custom Systems and Failure model • Detailed and deep simulation of almost every system in the real aircraft. • Custom air and pressure system. • Electrical system with all AC and DC busses modelled - see which system depends on which bus. • Hydraulic system that uses a little fluid when treated correctly and a lot of fluid if used incorrectly. • Multistage custom failure system - over 200 more failures than X-Plane. (Exclusive feature) • Ability to fix failure by following proper procedure. • Persistent failure and maintenance system – aircraft wear and misuse will carry over to your next flight. Warning system and radars (Exclusive feature) • Fully functional GPWS with all the modes the real plane has. • Fully functional terrain radar, with custom database (just like the real plane), a look-ahead warning system and many other features. • Weather radar that works like the real thing. Including tilt and gain functions, ground clutter, turbulence detection and windshear prediction. 3D Modeling • Accurate dimensions based on exterior drawings provided by Boeing. • Very detailed exterior modelling with high resolution textures. • Very high resolution 3D cockpit with every switch functional. • Spatial rain simulation with high detail. • Very detailed passenger cabin graphics including galleys. • Additional graphic features: real working oxygen masks both in cockpit and cabin, dynamic window blinds that react to sunlight etc. • New and improved wingflex. Special effects (Exclusive features) • Multilayer dynamic reflections on all glass objects. • Glow effects on screens • Reflective metal and plastic objects in the cockpit. • Glossy exterior that reflects the outside. • XP weather enhancements like custom windshear. Custom Sounds (Exclusive features) • Two sound pack by BSS for both engines. • Several hundred custom sounds. • In-cockpit custom sounds. • Switches with individual sounds. • Many individual system sound inside and outside. • Airport environment sounds. • Cabin sounds. • 3D stereo sound system for engines. • In flight cabin announcements. • Interactive communication with the cabin crew (reporting misconfigurations and passenger comfort problems). On Screen menus (Exclusive features) • An ipad-like menu popping-up from the cockpit. • Custom pages for loading/unloading fuel, cargo and passengers, customizing the CG, calling for pushback and performing maintenance. • Ability to customize the plane with winglets, special effects level, wingflex level and set other options to be saved or default. • Ground equipment and door pages. • Failure monitoring menu. Extra objects • Working push-back truck - Fully controllable with your joystick. • Passenger bus and stairs or optional gate configuration (passengers can be loaded from gate instead of bus). • Fuel truck, de-Icing truck, GPU, ground-start units both visible and fully functional with airplane systems. • Other ground equipment. Liveries • 7 default liveries included in the package. • About 50 additional liveries available separately. Screenshots & Media:
