It’s been a while since Just Flight updated us on its growing number of classic airliners currently in development for Microsoft Flight Simulator. The Fokker F28, F70 and F100, along with the RJ Professional, are some of the airplanes currently in development by the British team, who provided new details this week about the current status and ongoing progress with each of these airplanes.
The illuminated Fokker F28 Fellowship
Let’s start with the Fokkers, from oldest to newest. The F28 Fellowship has been in development for well over a year, but now seems to be approaching the final stages of its development cycle. In the latest update from Just Flight, it’s revealed that the team has been working on fixes and upgrades to the aircraft’s four variants, following intensive testing.
Just Flight has highlighted before the colorful cockpit that simmers will find in the F28, which features a large array of annunciators and multi-colored lamps. The latest preview images of the aircraft, shared this week by the development team, showcase these unique characteristics of the F28 in great detail. The flight deck can definitely look like a Christmas tree at night!
Just Flight says that soon we will be able to get a glimpse into the systems coding of the aircraft. For now, enjoy the latest interior and exterior shots, which also reveal some of the custom views that will be available to simmers, along with new liveries.
The fancier Fokker F70/100
The Fokker F70 and F100 were announced not too long ago by Just Flight, but since then we’ve had no additional information about the project or any new images. Thankfully, Just Flight noticed the absence of news and shared a couple of welcome details about the longer F100 model.
Just Flight says that both the exterior and interior models are now complete and textured, as the team is focused on adding the liveries that will be included in the final product, such as Air France, American Airlines, or British Airways.
As for the shorter F70, it’s in an early stage of development and will soon see the development work pick up some pace.
The four-engined RJ Professional
Finally, onto the 146 successor. The Avro RJ is a modern update to the classic British quad-jet that is now also coming to MSFS after the success of the Just Flight 146 Professional. The RJ Professional may look very similar to the 146, but it features a number of improvements and modernizations in its overall functionality. See here some of the differences between the two!
Following the last development update, Just Flight has now revealed that the RJ’s modeling and texturing have seen extensive testing in recent weeks to ensure the utmost accuracy when compared to the real-world aircraft.
The team has also finished up work on the 30 liveries that will come with the final product, representative of real-world operators of the aircraft.
In the flight deck, simmers will find a significantly upgraded airplane when compared to the 146. Digital displays become more predominant in the RJ series, from the PFD and MCP to the radios. As with the previous airplanes, Just Flight published a new set of stunning images of the RJ in Microsoft Flight Simulator, showcasing the typically excellent attention to detail from the team along with a sneak peek into some of the product functionality.
Besides these projects, Just Flight has a lot more on its plate! Other exciting airplanes are also in development from the team, some more advanced than others, but all of them very promising.
