Just Flight is getting ready to launch its next aircraft for Microsoft Flight Simulator, the Hawk T1/A Advanced Trainer. Currently expected to be released towards the end of September, the Hawk is bound to be another impressive aircraft from Just Flight, who already brought us the excellent Arrow III/IV and the Warrior II.
As you’re probably aware by now, Just Flight is also actively working on the F28 Fellowship, but next in line for a release in MSFS is the Hawk. We have been following the ongoing development of this project since its announcement back in February, as Just Flight has been kind enough to regularly share new images and details about the aircraft.
With the visuals seemingly complete, the developers have focused lately on the implementation of the various systems of the aircraft. While the Hawk is a relatively simple machine to operate, it definitely has its quirks, which are being fully simulated on this rendition for MSFS.
Just Flight promises that no switch or button will be left INOP, the infamous tooltip that signals a missing function in an aircraft. Not in the Hawk, as Just Flight is implementing all the aircraft’s systems, including the multiple AC and DC electric circuits, a ram-air-turbine as a hydraulic backup, a gas turbine starting system for engine stars, a central warning system, a Skymap II GPS system, among others.
This week Just Flight shared some stunning new photorealistic images of the Hawk inside MSFS, leaving us with the promise of a high-quality model that fully transpires a sentiment of authenticity. Soon the team will also publish the first videos of the aircraft in action, showing some of its systems and features. Expect these videos to come out later this week and on the next one, leading up to a release later in the month.
