The Bell-Boeing V-22 Osprey is certainly an interesting sight at first glance, with its half-helicopter, half-Thunderbird 2 style look. But fear not! You can now fly the V-22 Osprey in X-Plane 11.

Developed in the 1980s as an answer to the US Department of Defense's need for a long-range VTOL aircraft, the Bell-Boeing V-22 Osprey entered service in 2007 and is still in use today. The Osprey was the world's first tiltrotor aircraft, meaning that the rotors can tilt in different directions depending on which stage of flight the aircraft was in.

Now available in XP11 courtesy of AOA Simulations, creators of the F-35B Lightning. The Osprey V-22 is now available on the X-Plane.org store for $32.00.

Here is the full feature list;

Standard model features:

⦁ Fully animated 3D exterior model: gear, flaps, flight controls, nacelle tilt, ramps, doors and in-flight refuelling probe

⦁ Fully animated prop rotor feather, fold, nacelle tilt and wing stow sequence

⦁ Fully animated 3d interior cockpit model: stick, throttle, rudder pedals, switches, etc.

⦁ Seven liveries: Full Scale development V-22A, HMX-1 "Marine One", Japan SDF, RCAF 103 SAR Squadron, U.S. Air Force Special Operations Command CV-22B, U.S. Marine Corps VMM-161 Greyhawks and VMM-265 Dragons MV-22B's

⦁ More liveries available on the X-Plane.org freeware download manager

⦁ SASL plug-in driven avionics and automated systems

⦁ Default auto tilt, auto trim and auto flap control options can be switched off for full manual control if desired

⦁ Rapid ground refueling, virtual in-flight refueling and refueling from AI plane options

⦁ AOA Simulations F-35B features retained for the V-22

⦁ Optional HMD (Head Mounted Display)

⦁ Optional dynamic head movement in flight and taxi without track IR device (aka R2c)

⦁ Optional automatic target tracking feature. Tracks AI planes from cockpit with pilot head camera for realistic formation flying and in-flight refueling

⦁ Optional DAS (Distributed Aperture System) enables 360 degree tracking with automatic switching to external airframe camera

New Features:

⦁ Unique chase view "Arcade" mode and forward with nothing "Superman" mode when HMD is switched on in the cockpit before switching to either of those external views

Sounds like a fun purchase for any military guru flying in X-Plane 11. You can find the AOA Simulations V-22 Osprey for $32.00 on the X-Plane.org store here - or find the AOA website here.
