Zibo 737-800 Updated to Version 3.39

Friday, January 17, 2020

Zibo’s popular freeware aircraft, the 737, was updated to version 3.39 today. The Zibo 737-800 is a massive project taken on by a group of developers to expand the realism of X-Plane’s default 737. Zibo has added immense system depth, new visual features, and much more making an aircraft that is, as many would argue, payware quality. 

The changelog for v3.39 is considerably large, containing over 30 revisions which include, but are not limited to, a new and improved flight model for X-Plane 11.40 by Twkster and reworked ground displays. You can find it below.
