The development team at AFS-Design have released another great package for use in Flight Simulator X and FS2004, this time showing off two of their concept aircraft. Sometimes it's good to take a break from doing everything so seriously, and what better way than to take some time to try your hand piloting two fun and experimental concept aircraft. These strange and wonderful aircraft will provide hours of fun as you learn to master strange technologies like new methods of propulsion. Available as an immediate download, that won't take up much room on your hard drive, this add-on offers a quick fix of unbounded entertainment.

One of these models is classed as a supersonic gyro-copter. Similar to a helicopter in the way it functions, except that the rotors are passively powered by the wind and are capable of breaking the sound barrier! With a special design allows it to operate briefly like a VTOL aircraft. The second model, is a super futuristic helicopter that can turn into a jet mid flight, allowing for vertical take off and forward speeds twice the speed of sound!

With fully functioning cockpits, these aircraft feature most of the equipment you would find in a present day cockpit, including numerous multifunction and instrument flight displays. Access to both a 2D and a 3D panel with 1024 x 1024 textures should add a degree of comfort and familiarity to these otherwise unknown, futuristic aircraft.

The detailed exterior models can be painted in one of two default liveries, a smooth gray or a black and white color scheme. A blank texture is also included for repainters who want to make these aircraft even more unique. The exterior also features window reflections and other reflective surfaces that work in harmony with extensive outdoor lighting.

A host of custom animations, from the heli-jet afterburner to the complex rotor mechanisms make this aircraft all the more enjoyable to fly. If you're happy to not take it too seriously, as I'm not sure that these adhere to a working physics model, they are certainly good fun and the perfect tool to use if you're in need of some playful escapism.

Manufacturers Description

Just released from AFS-Design is their "Concept aircraft" package for Microsoft Flight Simulator X & 2004.  Packed with two stunning and strange concept aircraft, this expansion package is definitely one to play with.  You will have hours of fun with these strange and unusual 'craft.

AFS-design brings a new version of Concept Aircrafts 2 on the market. 

Concept Gyro: supersonic - gyrocopter.

Autogyro or gyrocopter is called a rotary-wing aircraft and is similar a helicopter in functionality. But the rotor is not an engine, he passively by the wind into rotation (auto-rotation). The buoyancy resulting attend by the resistance of the rotating rotor blade rotor rearward inclined surface. The propulsion carried out by turbine force. The 3 blades are oval shaped and can break the sound barrier. Therefore he has supersonic capability. Through a special design, this autogyro for 30 sec. hover on the spot. This time allows for vertical takeoffs and landings.

Swing Concept: rotor swing - helicopter.

Ultra-modern futuristic helicopter that can transform into a jet. Here, the rotors transform into wings in jet mode. Thus he can take off vertically and fly twice the speed of sound. Powering the rotor swing - by 3 helicopter turbine engines with afterburners.

The new AFS-design Add-On contains the following models:

  • Concept Gyro: supersonic - gyrocopter
  • Concept Swing: swing rotor - helicopter 

Concept Aircrafts are equipped with a variety of liveries:

  • Grey tarn
  • Black and white
  • Texture for repainters

All models have a fully functional cockpit:

  • Various switches for engine control and function
  • 3 MFDs with 30 different functions
  • 3 different AI - Traffic radar sites
  • Instrument flight displays with 2 VOR, 1 ADF gauge and 2 DMS
  • Full GPS page, map page, departure and arrival mode page, navigation page
  • OMI lights, hydraulics supervision pages, STORE & FUEL pages
  • Helicopter and jet mode status page,
  • Switch to operate in and out of the armory
  • 2D panel / 3D panel with 1024x1024 px textures

Other features:

  • Animation of opening the armory
  • Advanced Dynamic Flight:
  • 0 to 50% thrust helicopter mode (you can fly in front, side and back)
  • 50 to 100% thrust helicopter (jet mode is controlled like a jet airplane)
