NKDesign Releases Cessna 140 for X-Plane

February 12, 2021

In their first release since February 2020, NKDesign have launched the Cessna C140 for X-Plane 11. The developer had previously made a Columban Cri-Cri for the same simulator.

The C140 is NK's second foray into aircraft design after the aforementioned Cri-Cri, however, the developer also has experience in FMOD sound pack creation and scenery design, having created a default 747 sound pack and Brighton/Shoreham Airport previously.

The feature list is split into four parts, which are available below:

  • High quality 3D model
  • 4K Textures used throughout
  • Aircraft makes full use of PBR material rendering, and this varies by livery

Immersive 3D FMOD Soundscape
