It’s been a while since I was excited about an X-Plane aircraft release but Aerobask, one of my favourite developers for the platform, have recaptured my attention with their development and imminent release of the Phenom 300. Additional screenshots have appeared on the development thread showing off liveries and the dev team have answered a few key questions about the product as it closes in on release.
Livery eye candy and more
Plenty of screenshots have surfaced over the last few days with X-Plane.org Forum members ryanbatc and PeeWeeSweden posting images featuring the different liveries that will be available with the Phenom 300 as well as some updated shots of the cockpit interior.
Let’s have a look at what’s been released so far!
That’s looking pretty slick!
More details and resources
X-Plane has so few business jets that any new release tends to attract attention. Now Aerobask has two on the way (together with the Falcon 8X which is a much bigger project) I can see there’s already considerable attention in the community being put towards this going by the number of posts on the forum.
Aerobask has previously announced the feature list and a target release date of late March although no guarantees were given and said that it could slip. More recently, one of their chief developers has shown off a teaser of the IESI startup process. It’s not much but it is something!
The developers have also noted that documentation will be coming out ahead of the aircraft and is being written by a Phenom 300 pilot. They have also noted that the flight model has been tweaked thanks to input from a current pilot.
Keep an eye on the official announcement thread for release information.
