The package features all four production variants: the Mk 1000 to the Mk 4000 in 31 liveries. Each variant sports a highly detailed model with 4K and 8K textures along with realistic animations such as dynamic wing-flex, all passenger, service and cargo doors. The distinctive lift dumpers, tail-mounted airbrake and optional engine hush kits are also recreated in detail.

In the cockpit, the captain, co-pilot and jump seat positions are modelled with custom-coded systems based on real-world FCOMs, including hydraulic, electrical, fuel, bleed air, fire protection and pressurisation systems. It also sports authentic avionics with a realistic autopilot and an EFB (Electronic Flight Bag) for configuring the aircraft.

Announced in 1962, the F28 Mk 1000 made its maiden flight in 1967 and entered airline service in 1969. The Mk 2000, 3000 and 4000 variants followed in the 1970s and featured a longer fuselage length and increased wingspan. The last example rolled off the production line in 1987. The aircraft proved popular worldwide, with a small number of military operators still flying the type into the mid-2020s.

The F28 Professional is available on Just Flight's website for £52.49.
