Aircraft developer ToLiss has released the Airbus A340-600 for the X-Plane 11 platform.
The jet is licensed by Airbus and sports an authentic 3D model which captures the shape and dimensions of the real aircraft with details such as a custom undercarriage model, flight control surfaces and engines. It also includes a four-class passenger cabin layout with underfloor lavatories and crew rest areas.
Up front, the A340 sports a detailed and functional 3D cockpit with a mouse gesture system for interacting with the various knobs and switches while a custom cockpit lighting sports reading lights, console light and tray table lights. It also sports accurate system functionality with authentic hydraulic, fuel and pneumatic systems and a fly-by-wire systems with normal and alternate law.
A FMGS (Flight Management Guidance System) includes two independent autopilots and MCDUs with functions such as alternate, temporary and secondary flight plans and holds. SIDs/STARs and airways are supported as well as support for all approach types present in real life A340-600s. VNAV guidance includes top of climb, top of descent, deceleration points, speed limits and fuel prediction as well as altitude and speed constraints.
The custom failure model has more than 140 system faults that can be activated at a specific point in flight or randomly during any phase of flight. The ECAM will display over 30 warnings and over 200 caution messages.
An autosave feature can be used to save the flight at any point to practice the approach or resume a flight where it was left off. Moreover, a jump to waypoint feature can be used through the cruise phase to shorten a flight.
Four start-up configurations range from Cold and Dark to engines running and ready for take-off.
Other highlights include adjustable wing flex, glass screen reflections and particle effects for the engines, fuel jettison etc. It also works with the SkunkCrafts auto-updater.
