For many flight simulation enthusiasts, the VC10 aircraft is among their most popular.
It’s seen as a graceful and still wonderfully modern jetliner and holds a strong reputation among aviation fans. Designed by Vickers-Armstrong, it’s a long-distance aircraft that handles flights from the United Kingdom to Africa, for example. It’s long-distance capability alongside an ability to fly at high altitude – and land on precariously short runways – made it the perfect aircraft.
Indeed, this delivered a hugely impressive aircraft in both performance and pace. Capable of hitting speeds superseded only by the Concorde in terms of jet airliner speed, the VC10 is a hugely enjoyable aircraft to fly.
With many new features included to help makes this FSX/P3D add-on feel as realistic as possible, users can enjoy having access to many more essential cockpit controls.
From easier handling of every aspect of the flight to key supporting components added in, you can enjoy a much more harmonious flying experience with ease.
For those who wish to try out the VC10 from a more realistic perspective, this add-on includes both visual and performance-based improvements for you to enjoy.
