NEWS!- Aircraft Update : Citation C-560XL v1.5 by AirSim3D


CRJ XP12 update News! header.jpg


Released late in 2022, and currently only for X-Plane 11. The Citation C-560XL by AirSim3D was our best of the year aircraft in the "Business Aircraft", category. It was well deserved, as it is not only a great simulation of a very interesting aircraft, but a very additive simulation as well.


The X-Plane 12 version is now coming along as well...  and the developer notes it looks "Great" in the new X-Plane version. I have no doubt about that and foresee easily the quality that shone in X-Plane 11, will make it absolutely shine in X-Plane 12. If you buy now (X-Plane 11), you will also get a free upgrade to X-Plane 12 when that version is released. There is a video showing the aircraft in X-Plane 12, below...



Currently focus in the v1.5 release is on the key functions like the hydraulics, adds pilot objects, adds fmod sounds, adds 4 more liveries and does some other general tuning to the lighting and handling just to make things better and even more smoother. Here is the full changelog;


Version 1.5 (January 12th 2023)

  •  Upgraded Hydraulic system failure authenticity: Now very specific procedures need to be followed because the gear, speed brakes, flaps, reversers and other systems go offline with pump failures
  • Gear-blow down is now 100% authentic with Hydraulic failures, so this can get scary!
  • Upgraded Oil pressure functionality
  • Couple of minor APU panel labeling fixes you probably missed, but we did not
  • Fixed adverse yaw reversal under certain conditions
  • Tuned/better ground-roll and handling
  • Tuned starting-point cockpit under-hood night lighting -- made a shade brighter based on real-pilot feedback - its fully controllable anyway
  • oops... some icing and heater timings shipped with short test periods; fixed to now reflect real heating time (considering ambient temps too)
  • 1 Annunciator color fix
  • Added reading and table lights and lamps for each chair in the cabin
  • Added Pilot objects in external views
  • Added more FMOD sounds 
  • Added 2 real, and 2 professionally designed liveries for Canada and Germany (now a total of 12 country-themed designs to fly with) Paint kit has been available here.

Noted that this will be the last update for the current time to focus on delivering the aircraft for X-Plane 12.

Have just loaded the Cessna Citation 560XL v1.5.  The only problem that I'm having is that I cannot get the Auto Pilot to engage.  Looks like the AP button has no function.  Please advise.  I really enjoy flying this aircraft.
