Stephen Posted March 17 Report Share Posted March 17 NEWS! - Aircraft Release : Citation C-560XL by AirSim3D for X-Plane 12 In November last year 2022, AirSim 3D released their excellent Citation 560XL in X-Plane, but only in X-Plane 11... also the twilight zone in X-Plane 12 Beta. The aircraft was fantastic, but like me I had already moved on to the bright and shiny X-Plane 12, Beta and all. So in a way the release timing was not fair to the aircraft. Here it is now released in it's proper X-Plane guise, and if any aircraft was created for X-Plane 12, it was this Citation C-560XL. The X-Plane 11 release review is here; Aircraft Review : Cessna Citation 560XL by AirSim3d There are now three 560XL aircraft packages X-Plane 12 X-Plane 11 X-Plane 12 + X-Plane 11 If you have already purchased the AirSim 3D 560XL before March 15th 2023, your purchase already includes both XP11 and XP12 versions, notably there will be no upgrade between the packages so please make sure you select the right one. AirSim3D C-560 XL: Real-Jet authenticity Real jet visits at Boeing airfield were extensively used to inform build and design decisions 100’s of pages of real POH manuals, specs, drawings, pics used Real pilot tested and extensively beta tested Result: real-world systems, lighting, functions, modeling and procedures authenticity Rich FMOD sounds Sample recordings from the real jet at Boeing Field Result: Custom Engine, APU, GPU, Warnings, Call outs, Clicks, Beeps, airflow, in/out, sound modulation...all included Example: AP disconnect – that's the actual sound real pilots hear!

Also, Support responds very quickly on this forum too. Thanks for that." “Just doing a night flight, the night lighting is excellent.
