X-Crafts has announced its E-Jets Family has been upgraded for X-Plane 12 compatibility.
The package is a complete rebuild of the original E-Jets Family, featuring a new authentic FMS, all-new and authentic systems simulation, a custom EFB (Electronic Flight Bag), new FMOD sounds and a flight model made with the help of real-world E-Jets pilots, including engine performance data.
It features a detailed 3D interior and exterior model made using 3D scans to match the colours and dimensions of the actual aircraft, along with realistic lighting and animations.
The flight deck sports accurate PFD, MFD and EICAS screens, incorporating the exact colours and fonts. The MFD includes a custom high-resolution NAV map, a Vertical Situation Display and synoptic pages. It also comes with accurate autopilot modes, including LNAV/VNAV and an authentic FMS with SID, STARs, airways, altitude restrictions and performance data.
The new EFB (Electronic Flight Bag) can be used to control the doors, and ground services, set the weight and balance, import Simbrief data, enter performance calculations and view checklists.
The aircraft features next-generation custom FMOD sounds recorded from real aircraft, including cockpit audio effects and cabin announcements. It is also virtual-reality compatible and has been fine-tuned for a smooth VR experience.
The complete package is compatible with both X-Plane 11 and 12 and covers the Embraer E170, E175, E190 and E195. It is available on x-plane.org for $134.95 (approx £108). Individual aircraft can be purchased for $74.95 (approx £60).
Customers who bought the E175 v2.5 or E195 v2.5 will get an automatic 15% discount towards buying the full E-Jets Family. This discount does not apply when purchasing one E-Jet.
