UPDATE News! FlightFactor header.jpg

 

FlightFactor have updated both their Boeing 757 and Boeing 767 Professional Series to X-Plane Beta. The update is available via the X-Updater application and the "Beta" box needs to be ticked. Notable that this update comes with a big sticker "Beta" warning, as the beta program is in flux then so are the aircraft, but at least you can enjoy and currently them in X-Plane 12, Beta period or not.

 

The Pro Avionics FPDS and Boeing 767-400 addon features also are included in the B767 package and the 757 (C32) is part of the B757 package if you have those addons. Boeing 767-400 is shown below.
