Aerosoft has announced the CRJ 550/700 for Microsoft Flight Simulator is out now.
Built on the experience gained from the FSX and Prepar3D version, the new CRJ 550/700 now sports cutting-edge technology available in the Microsoft Flight Simulator engine to take advantage of the latest in design, system and flight model programming.
The package includes the CRJ 550 and 700 variants, a total of nine liveries and a detailed 3D model based on photographs of the real aircraft. It features high-resolution PBR (Physically Based Rendering) textures throughout, along with animations such as the undercarriage, flaps and doors.
Up front, the cockpit is modelled with advanced features such as rain effects, while the flight dynamics are based on the flight simulator's new aerodynamic model and has been fine-tuned to replicate the performance of the real aircraft.
