X-Plane 12 Citation X tutorial series kicks-off

Laminar Research have been releasing an onslaught of videos recently and the newest series kicks-off some learning opportunities for another new X-Plane 12 aircraft, the Cessna Citation X!

Business jet baked in

One of the nice things about X-Plane 12’s default aircraft set is that we now have a business jet class airplane baked into the sim. These are an interesting category of aircraft that, until more recently, seems to have been a bit under serviced by X-Plane. They do offer an interesting middle ground for sim pilots being smaller and a bit more sporty than an airliner but with semi-similar procedures and complexity.

If you’ve been wanting to fly this jet in X-Plane but a few video tutorials might make all the difference, Laminar’s new series looks like a good way to get started. This first video covers preparation and start-up with follow-up series likely going into different procedures for the aircraft – if their previous series with the SR-22 is any indication.

    If you want to know why the Citation X is the fastest (civilian) aircraft in X-Plane, he explains it here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ruh93CwQBCI&ab_channel=XPlaneOfficial

    Also very cool tidbit about a math error in the Beta that caused some trouble before being prepared, also even more info on why the Tomcat is one of the coolest aircraft – even from an aerodynamic perspective…

    And ALSO news about a High Fidelity F-4 Phantom coming to X-Plane right around v12.1 🙂

      I didn’t listen to the full video because I thought it was just a flight model discussion for devs. Now I’m going to have to listen to it 😀
