Just Flight Updates 146 Professional for MSFS

May 23, 2023

Just Flight has recently released an update to their British Aerospace 146 Professional for Microsoft Flight Simulator, adding SU12 & Xbox Compatibility, flight model and performance (FPS) improvements, failures (and failure control), and more.

The British Aerospace 146 is a regional airliner made in the United Kingdom between 1983 and 2001, featuring four geared turbofan engines mounted underneath the wings, with a retractable tricycle landing gear. With up to 3,600 km of range and a 749 km/h cruise speed, it can tackle short and medium-haul, formerly very popular at airports like London City with its short runway and steep glide path angle.

The new update is now fully compatible with SU12 and Xbox, along with new features, including a random payload button on the EFB, allowing users to set a random amount of passengers for the flight. They have also included a fully customizable failure system, where users can control over 80 different system and component failures, with the possibility to fail them instantly, arming them to fail later, or even randomly, with togglable probabilities.
