Developer Just Flight has just released a new set of screen shots for their upcoming 146 Professional showing the 200/300 variants in flight.
Just Flight are excited to bring you the 146 ‘Whisper Jet’, featuring the 100, 200 and 300 series of this classic British airliner. The design process of what was to become the 146-100 began under Hawker Siddeley in 1973 where the iconic high T-tail, short undercarriage, four engines and distinctive airbrake were chosen to produce a regional airliner with short-field performance and quiet operation. The 146-100 first flew in 1981, followed by the stretched 200 series in 1982 and 300 series in 1988.
The exterior models are stunningly detailed, featuring 4096 textures for incredible clarity and the latest Physical Based Rendering (PBR) material technology to produce realistic metallic, plastic and glass surfaces (requires Prepar3D v4.4 and above). Realistic animations include trailing-edge flap mechanisms, spoilers and large tail-mounted airbrake, and all passenger and cargo doors.
Moving to the cockpit, the Captain, Co-Pilot and jump-seat positions are modelled with hundreds of functional switches, knobs and controls. The extensive overhead panel features custom-coded hydraulic, electrical, fuel and pressurisation systems, and the cockpit is also fitted with a functional Thrust Management System (TMS) and authentic navigation equipment.
The 146 was flown all around the world and a variety of airline liveries from the UK, USA, Australia, Canada, Germany and other nations will be included.
The X-Plane version of this aircraft will be coming soon
