Aerobask releases the E1000 for X-Plane 12

The E1000, built by Epic Aircraft in Bend, Oregon, is a sleek single-engine turboprop powered by Prat and Whitiney's renowned PT6A. Epic aimed to create the fastest single-engine civil aircraft during the time of its introduction and production. The PT6A-67 puts out 1,200 hp with a four-bladed Hartzell prop attached, bringing this aircraft to a maximum speed of 333 knots and a service ceiling of 34,000 feet. With a pressurized cabin the E1000 can transport five comfortably in club seating arrangements while achieving a 1560 NM range. The airframe uses composites to save weight, increasing performance.

You can now experience jet-like speeds and altitudes with Aerobask's recreation of the E1000 for X-Plane 12. Aerobask focused on the flight model in team with X-Aerodynamics, allowing the sim model to match the latest prototype certification performance metrics. The visual model includes 4k PBR textures and a wholly remodeled airframe that's packaged with eight liveries.

The aircraft's avionics are powered by Laminar's version of the Garmin G1000 suite and work together with the GFC700 autopilot. The PT6A comes with custom parameters to resemble its real-world counterpart. The systems and operational procedures match the functional circuit breakers of the actual aircraft, and a fully simulated EIS500 Stand-by Attitude Module is also included.

Ease of use features an Avitab tablet for controlling various options on the aircraft. To learn more about Aerobask's Epic 1000, see their listing, website, or Facebook in the links below. The Epic E1000 is currently on sale as of 11/27/2023 for 22.72 (regular pricing 34.95).
