Just Flight bringing Hawk T1/A to MSFS

Another internal development project by the folks over at Just Flight has been revealed. This time it’s the Hawk T1/A Advanced Trainer and it’s reveal brings with it plenty of screenshots and some insight into how long we’ll have to wait for the aircraft to be released. Read on!

Advanced trainer

The Hawk is used by the RAF and at least 12 other countries as an advanced jet trainer and occasionally as a light fighter. It features a single Rolls-Royce Turbomeca Adour Mk. 951 turbofan engine, limited weapon capability (not coming to MSFS), and front seat/back seat controls. The Hawk is also used by the Red Arrows, the RAF’s aerobatic team, and Just Flight has already confirmed a Red Arrows livery will come with the aircraft.

Development to date has apparently focused on the visual aspect of the aircraft and Just Flight reports that work on this aspect is largely complete barring any minor tweaks. They expect to switch to programming the jet’s systems over the next few months.

That doesn’t give us too much to go on in terms of a release schedule, however, I would make a guess that we may see this sometime in the spring or early summer.

For now, check out these screenshots!

    I wonder if they’ve sorted the IP issues that sunk the DCS Hawk?

    I’m more interested in the T-45 right jow, but it’s always good to see more quality aircraft being offered in all platforms 🙂

      I don’t remember everything that happened but I didn’t think IP was at the top of the list of issues. VEAO not relinquishing the IP on their effort to ED after they bailed on development was what I thought had sunk it.

      T-45 looks great!

    Thanks for sharing – looking forward to a few laps of the Mach Loop in this 🙂 Was disappointed when the VEAO Hawk for DCS got canned, but as a trainer it probably makes more sense to be able to fly this jet in its natural habitat via MSFS (not sure if DCS: North Wales is on the ED roadmap!)

      It is nice to see what appears to be a good quality Hawk T1 in a simulator! Mach loop flights will definitely be happening.
