The aircraft features full PBR textures and materials throughout and features the Carenado Primus 1000 avionics systems. It will integrate with Flight1 GTN 750 and Reality XP GTN 750 (although these need to be purchased separately).
There are other magnificent effects such as the custom brakes sound on the taxiway and landing run, as well as the real rolling effect on takeoff runs and landing.
There are also realistic flight dynamics, start-up procedures, aural warnings, and engine and sound system sounds which further bring this vehicle to life. The package further features a Cold and Dark start option.
This package also includes seven HD liveries, one HD Carenado livery, and one blank HD livery. There are also several PDF information documents included (see below). This is also compatible with VR.
There is a customizable panel, allowing the user to control such things as windows transparency, instrument reflections, and wheel chocks, and the night light effects on the panel and in the cockpit further add to the realism.
Users should also note that this aircraft does not have a 2D panel. Also, although you can access all the information you need for flight from the January 2016 Navigraph database, if you wish to keep that database up to date, a subscription is required.
