I’ve had some terrific adventures with the Aerobask Phenom 300 in X-Plane 11 since its release and now that it’s out for X-Plane 12 I intend to have several more. The new update from Aerobask was released today.
Same Phenom 300, new sim!
At a time when business jets were few and far between for X-Plane 11, Aerobask surprised many of us with their announcement of a Phenom 300 in development for that sim. Aerobask’s rendition of the Phenom 300 is now over a year old now but its still a favourite among many X-Plane fans and this latest update brings it up to scratch for X-Plane 12.
For X-Plane 12, the flight model has been tweaked by X-Aerodynamics, there are new G100 features, new ice and rain effects, and Aerobasks’ new menu system which appears to be standard across their entire lineup. The new menu includes features such as auto-computing V-speeds and the ability to change the livery on the fly so if you don’t like your choice, you can choose another one.
The liveries do look great under the new lighting model too!
The update is free for current owners. Those looking to buy in can get the Phenom 300 for $44.95 USD. It’s available from the X-Plane.org Store.
