A new MD-11 has landed on Microsoft Flight Simulator. Developed by Sky Simulations, the new product looks to give those looking to try the tri-engined aircraft an opportunity.
The McDonnell Douglas MD-11 was first introduced in the 1990s and went on to have 200 produced. Whilst its days as a passenger jet are now over, it still operates regularly as a cargo aircraft. Its tri-engine design meant that it allowed airlines to operate over uninhabited areas of the world without ETOP restrictions, thus opening up lots of route opportunities.
The product comes with 4 different models of the MD-11; both passenger and cargo variants, with two different engine types each. Each model comes with native modelling, high resolution textures, 3D animated surfaces and more. According to Sky Simulations, the plane has accurate flight modelling, a fully simulated air system and an operative FMC.
There’s an onboard EFB to control various aircraft options, a flight operations manual and a native MSFS interactive checklist to help you fly the aircraft.
