Just as promised, Just Flight released today their highly anticipated F28 Professional for Microsoft Flight Simulator. The F28 Professional is a high-fidelity simulation of the F28 regional jet, developed by the in-house team at Just Flight following comprehensive, hands-on research with a real-world aircraft.
The F28 Professional is a successor to their highly-praised 146 Professional for MSFS. The new release includes all four production variants of the F28: the Mk 1000 to the Mk 4000. The aircraft, which first flew in 1967 and entered airline service in 1969, proved to be popular and entered airline service around the world, with a small number of military operators still flying the type into the mid-2020s.
The F28 Professional features incredibly detailed models with 4K and 8K textures for the highest possible texture detail and clarity. Realistic animations include dynamic wing-flex, all passenger, service and cargo doors, and the distinctive lift dumpers and tail-mounted airbrake.
In the cockpit, the Captain, Co-Pilot and jump seat positions are modelled, with every switch, knob and lever animated and functional. A highly detailed and accessible passenger cabin and galley are included and include fully interactable forward galley controls for door operation, cabin lights, cabin-to-cockpit calls, cabin temperature and even a music system!
The aircraft features complex custom-coded systems based on real-world FCOMs, including hydraulic, electrical, fuel and pressurisation systems. Wear and tear based on extensive reference photos and a 3D Wwise sound set provide an authentic cockpit environment, with highly realistic flight dynamics for each variant completing the highly-immersive experience.
The F28 Fellowship comes with a range of 30 liveries from around the world, reflecting its varied airline service. The Operating Manual and the EFB manual are included with the aircraft software and can also be downloaded from the Just Flight website.
The F28 Professional features custom-coded aircraft systems with a high degree of complexity and depth, including air-conditioning, bleed air supply and pressurisation systems, autopilot, auxiliary power unit (APU), communication system, doors and stairs, electronic flight bag (EFB), electrical system, flight model and effects, fire protection system, flight controls, fuel system, hydraulic system, ice and rain protection system, indicating and recording systems, landing gear, lighting, oxygen system, power plant, and sounds. It’s a handful, and it sure to keep you busy throughout many flights in Microsoft Flight Simulator!
