Just Flight Previews BAe 146 for X-Plane

January 6, 2021

Following the last round of previews just over a month ago, Just Flight have once again taken to Facebook to share some new images of their BAe 146 for X-Plane.

The iconic quad-jet was first released for Prepar3D, but is now making its way to X-Plane.

"[The] 146 Professional X-Plane version progressing nicely, here are some new screenshots showing off exterior and interior parts including some previews of the cockpit backlighting and passenger cabin."

The product is being developed in partnership with Thranda Design, who previously worked on a number of Just Flight's other X-Plane conversions like the Avro Vulcan, Hawk T1/A and more.

According to the new product page, 'this all-new and highly detailed simulation of the 146 regional jet is being developed by Just Flight's in-house team and Thranda Design following comprehensive, hands-on research with a real-life aircraft, G-JEAO, which retired from service with British European Airways in 2000 and is now preserved at the de Havilland Aircraft Museum.'

An extensive feature list was also provided (see the full list here), however, here's a concise version:

  • Realistic and accurate flight dynamics based on real world performance and handling data, and input from real-world pilots
  • Three variants of the 146 included - the -100, -200 and -300.
  • Authentic LF-507 engine sound set, generated using X-Plane's state-of-the-art FMOD sound system
  • Custom sounds for airbrakes, switches, wipers, cockpit systems and more, featuring accurate location placement of sounds in the stereo spectrum, 3D audio effects, atmospheric and distance effects, adaptive Doppler, exterior sounds spill in when the crew door is open, different sound characteristics depending on viewing angle etc.
  • Multiple interior and exterior viewpoints, including wing views
  • Comprehensive manual with panel guide and performance data
  • PSD Paint Kit included so you can create your own paint schemes
