They vary in style, they vary in size, and they vary in difficulty to fly - but they all carry the same quality of realism and dedication to getting the entire thing just right. It's vital to have an aircraft at your disposal that feels genuinely real, that runs just the way that it's supposed to, and this remake of the Seneca II does just that.
By capturing all of the little things that have made this aircraft so popular since it was first produced in 1974. By bringing in various improvements from the old model, the Seneca, this helped to improve the performance and safety of the aircraft in many ways. The control surfaces and the balance of the aircraft were most seriously improved, and this in turn created a truly easy to fly aircraft that could be enjoyed by just about anyone.
This new model helped to bring the Seneca range into the future, if you will, and even today this aircraft is still well-received around the world. Looking to fly something a bit retro but with real quality and class to it? Then this is well worth your time!
Like every other release in the collection, this helps to bring all of the little features that you might not have given too much thought to in the past so much more credibility. It's the little things that make an aircraft different from one another, as you typically notice that most aircraft are fundamentally similar.
Therefore, this aircraft package helps you to notice some of the more subtle differences out there - instead of just having an aircraft that's a new model and little else, this helps to add a bit of difference to each aircraft that you might be thinking of trying.
This is very important, of course, because nobody wants to fly an aircraft that's too basic - by giving you all of the normal Just Flight features such as new panels, new performance levels and coded in features that you won't see elsewhere it remains true to the real thing. Nothing that wasn't included or available in the normal Seneca II has been left out; this is true to history, ensuring you get the most comfortable performance possible.
If you've ever had the pleasure of flying this aircraft in the past in real-life then the similarities between the simulation and the real thing should be immediately apparent to you. These little adjustments all come together to bring the whole thing into sharp contrast to some of the vanilla aircraft; the difference in the way it handles and performs is massive, helping you truly understand why the Seneca II was so popular in its pomp.
This package brings to the fore many interesting little quirks and additions that really help to seal the entire package and make it feel truly unique. Just Flight are great for adding in those little kinks that make the entire experience a lot easier to enjoy, a you'll find some excellent changes such as;
A brand new avionics system that provides you with things such as the audio system to be controlled as and when you need it
A new set of avionics that are designed for each of the aircraft, based on the real-life equipment that is used in the Seneca II - this creates a simple, fluid flight process for everyone
Transponder functions have been added in to help you navigate your flight easier and get to where you need to go without losing your direction
A GPS system, albeit with rather limited functionality - remember, this is a true remake of the real thing!
Distance Measuring Equipment is included to ensure that you are able to work out the estimated time between locations, as well as work the autopilot feature that can be so useful for helping you to get to grips with this specific aircraft
Navigation transceivers and comms units are provided to ensure that you can start to get all the help that you need in finding your way without any troubles

These have all been built from scratch and work perfectly within both FSX and FS2004, giving you unprecedented levels of detail and precision within the actual aircraft itself. This can help to solidify your experience and help you get all the help you need in really immersing yourself in the experience
Not sure if you can manage this aircraft? Then you'll find the full systems operations manuals extremely useful. Located in an easy to read PDF document you can take away the confusion of the flight process and start hitting those key flight targets
New lighting systems to help you navigate even the most difficult of storms and dark nights, giving you increased visibility and improving your overall performance
Edit the payload that your aircraft is carrying from the amount of fuel and passengers, helping you fully customize the flight to fit the conditions that you wanted to fly in

Massive attention to detail in both looks and performance; this aircraft takes off like a master, and gives you all of the little quirks and features that made the Seneca II so popular in the first place. Designed to impress and thrill, you'll be able to see the main difference between Just Flight mods and the vanilla edition aircraft that are provided!

A perfect old school Seneca that looks and flies exactly like the one I have flown IRL. Low resolution, but it works fine.
