NEWS! - Aircraft Updated : CH47D Chinook by X-Trident to X-Plane 12


Chinook CH47-D  XP12 News! header.jpg


One of the great things about being active in a review site, is that a lot of times you are the bearer of very good news...  so yes I'm very happy to announce that the X-Trident CH47D Chinook is now available for X-Plane 12, better news still the release is an update, not a paid upgrade, so the conversion to X-Plane 12 is free!


There are no new features, but then again the X-Plane 11 version had a truck load of features, so it was, or could have been hard to add in anything new anyway, but the conversion does cover all the X-Plane 12 facets in performance and windshield effects (rain, ice, de-ice).

The CH-47 Chinook is an American twin-engined, tandem rotor, heavy-lift helicopter. The CH-47 is among the heaviest lifting Western helicopters.
The Chinook possesses several means of loading various cargoes, including multiple doors across the fuselage, a wide loading ramp located at the rear of the fuselage and a total of three external ventral cargo hooks to carry underslung loads.

The internal detail is incredible...  all the doors open of course, and in flight!
