FlyingIron Simulations has just published a new update detailing the latest advancements in the development of their Spitfire project! In two facebook posts, the team indicated that the aircraft has reached a stage where beta testing should begin, alongside a massive list of progress.

The aircraft will utilise X-Plane 1.30's newest features to its full advantage. Some highlights of the update include the systems being mainly complete, with over 2,000 lines of code written so far and possibly counting. Sounds for the Spitfire is created using "Multisound Events", to prevent hearing the same repetitive sound over and over, increasing realism, and the Particle system are currently being refined and tweaked. Here is the full list and previews:
