Just Flight’s internal development team is putting the finishing touches on the long awaited 146 Professional for Microsoft Flight Simulator. Here’s the latest.
On final approach
Just Flight has dropped two new development updates over the last several days. The latest update is a quick one indicating that their development has reached the final stages. A pre-release build is reportedly being put through testing to identify issues and prepare for release.
Just Flight already has a 146 Professional for X-Plane 11 and for P3D but they are doing some MSFS specific things as well. There’s full support for the MSFS interactive checklist, new EFB features, cargo variant, new liveries, 8K textures for the cockpit, and more. Just Flight have also recently put out a PDF showcasing the details of the product in more detail including some MSFS specifics that are tied to the power of the newer sim. Check that PDF out right here.

Starting the flood of airliners
Although it’s taken about a year and a half, the 146 Professional is just one of several detailed airliners that are about to come to MSFS. To date we’ve seen aircraft like the PMDG DC-6, Aerosoft’s CRJ, and of course the free FBW A32NX but now we have Just Flight’s BAe 146 as well as Fenix’s A320, and PMDG’s 737-700. There are even more coming down the pipe with the 757 from Just Flight and the A300 series from iniSimulations just to name some of the airliners that I know about.
From famine to feast, Microsoft Flight Simulator looks set to collect a series of what appear to be very detailed simulations of airliners. It’s been a long time in coming but Just Flight’s 146 Professional looks to be kick starting that process together with PMDG’s new 737.
