This mod package gives you access to a truly unique remake of the SportCruiser. Instead of just flying something that resembles it, you'll be flying something far closer to the real thing. Known for its high turn of pace even when cruising or turning, this is an aircraft that literally feels like it can be gliding at times; if you want something leisurely and simple then this might be a good place to start!
Having been created in conjunction with the Czech Sport Aircraft system as well as the UK branch of the CSA, this brings many of the positive facets of both companies to the table for maximum performance and consistency. Boasting two seats inside unlike many smaller aircraft, you'll be able to fly a nice and simple flight using the AP74 autopilot and 6-pack panel feature that makes inputting controls and commands easier than ever before.
Flash, modern and exciting; what more could you be looking for in a flight simulator aircraft such as this? It's class, it's easy to fly, and it's really fun!
About Just Flight
It's always nice to know that the package you have just installed is of the highest possibly design standards and qualities; and when you download a Just Flight package you are typically getting this. Recognized as one of the most prominent and professional members of the flight simulation community, their attention to detail and precision in creation is one of their biggest assets and sets them out as one of easiest flight simulation mod teams out there to work with; their products install fast, install easy and make your life so much simpler.
One of the main things that they are well known is the attention to detail with regards to the specific features of the aircraft that you are flying; worried that you might be taking off into the air in nothing more than a model with basic features? You'll be happy to know that FSX won't let you down. It's designed to make it nice and simple to really start getting to the grips with the aircraft of your choice in an easy to learn and authentic manner, capturing all of those little details that make an aircraft extra special to fly.
Nothing is more enjoyable than knowing that what you are flying is down to the very last decimal accurate in terms of flight dynamics and specifications; after all, the aim is to get the perfect simulation of what you are trying to do! It'll make life so much easier for you, making it nice and simple to carry out the usual basics whilst adding in a lot of the extra features that make every aircraft different from one another. With Just Flight, this variety is celebrated rather than feared or poorly represented.
Many of the changes that Just Flight bring to the table are more "under the hood" so to speak, and therefore provide you with something a bit more nuanced than you might be expecting. However, when all of these little changes are working alongside you and making it as easy as possible to manage, it becomes so much simpler to actually enjoy the flight process. In fact, as an education tool, very few projects can come close to the overall quality of this remake of the SportCruiser - you'll get to learn all of the little quirks and tricks for the plane just as you would have in real life.
Many new animations have been created, for start, including the Ballistic Recovery System. This is a hugely important feature as it will mean that you can trigger this excellent system to help you get out of a spin in the air; you'll deploy a parachute and jet out to safety, getting you away from this brutal aircraft. If you want to learn how to use this trick then you can consult the provided manual with the game, making it much easier to actually learn about & follow.
The extra panels that have been brought in combine perfectly with many of the newer features, as well. These will allow you to have a nice glass cockpit to use as well as more basic configurations; whatever it is that you are after, you'll find it here with ease just by looking around and seeing what you can actually activate yourself! It's simple enough to do and just requires you to put in the hard work to get the process and the timing down. Once you do this, you'll have a hugely responsive user-friendly aircraft waiting for you at all times.
What You Get
In this package, you'll receive access to the new aircraft in all of its glory, along with a nice little collection of new features and additions to back it up as a package of excellent value. Just Flight love to go that extra mile, and provide you with extras such as;
Ten outstanding variant of this aircraft from various different styles and panels. The color and the style of the cockpit will change depending on what you pick, making it nice and easy to find something that actually fits your own flying style and overall level of performance
Various new help manuals, as well, so you can pick up on all of the details and pieces of information that you will need along the way. This creates a much easier learning process for you, making sure that you can get all of the vital little things down and master the aircraft as best as you can
Multiple panel options are added in as well so that you can get full control over what kind of aircraft interface you are going to be dealing with - this makes it a lot easier to manage your aircraft over the entire learning process
A completely reworked virtual cockpit system that will make mastering the SportCruiser easier than most other aircraft selections out there. Made to give you full control over how you will fly and how you'll proceed forward, this is the perfect choice for anyone who wants to become a more established pilot
Added in 3D gauges that work perfectly and give you accurate information relayed from the simulator; they aren't just loading up and feeding you information for effect, they actually work just as they should be! Now you can use the gauges and indicators to master the flying experience completely
Autopilot system that is linked to the EFIS system, making it nice and easy to just pick up the route for your flight and actually enjoy the flight instead of trying to do everything yourself as you fly through the skies! Release yourself from pressure with this excellent autopilot feature
Incredible levels of detail have been carried out on the exterior of the aircraft; the HD textures shine beautifully in the skies and make sure that you can really get a feel for how the aircraft truly looks. This isn't just some attempt to remake the aircraft; it's stunningly accurate
This goes for the level of the textures as much as it does for the interior of the aircraft. This looks truly outstanding, and makes it nice and easy to stick with when you are looking to become a more balanced and competitive pilot, as you'll really get engrossed in the flight itself!
These stunning details capture the cockpit perfectly, too. From the insignificant little spoilers that you don't even need to vital parts and functions of flying the aircraft, you'll find it much easier to master with this massively realistic cockpit that really does put across each features perfectly
A fully animated pilot is just one of the many changes used to modernize and improve the overall look and feel of the aircraft. Made to really capture those key moments and features such as smoke flying out the exhausts and the pilot reacting to your commands, you'll really find it easy to get properly involved and immersed
Many smaller features are included too, including things like luggage lockers within the wings and moving parts that come alive as you try and command the flight; you can watch each part of the aircraft respond naturally just by changing your flight path or direction!
