Aircraft developer FlightFactor has released a number of updates for many of its aircraft over the past week or so that give them compatibility with X-Plane 12.
For the Boeing fleet, the Boeing 757 and Boeing 767 from FlightFactor have been updated with a new ‘beta’ build. Not only does the new build add X-Plane 12 compatibility for these aircraft, but it also includes a number of changes and fixes to further enhance the products. Changelogs, where provided, are down below. According to their Facebook page, the Boeing 777 (original) is also getting an update, but there’s no confirmation information it’s available yet.
If you’re looking for new information on the upcoming 777v2 or their upcoming 787 Pro, sadly, there is no new news at this time.
Moving onto their Airbus fleet, the team confirmed that their Airbus A350 will be getting an update soon that will bring compatibility with X-Plane 12. Perhaps the biggest takeaway from all of this is their all-new update for the Airbus A320.
The Airbus A320 update greatly enhances the original product for X-Plane 12. In addition to compatibility, there’s a new 3D cockpit, implementation of alternate law, new aerodynamic effects, and a new instant failure control feature. The current release is a ‘beta’, but FlightFactor says that by the time it leaves the beta period, it will feature new weather and terrain radars, circuit breakers, anti-icing effects, and improvements to the external model. You can watch the trailer for the update here.
This is all in addition to the in-depth simulation of the A320 already available. In order to get this update, you will need to pay an additional $20 through a new purchase on the X-Plane.org store.
