NEWS! - Aircraft Updated : Gulfstream 550 v2.7 by AKD Studios


 Gulfstream G550 by AKD Studio v1.07 header.jpg


For regular updates then no one currently in the X-Plane Simulator can deliver as many as AKD Studios and their Gulfstream 550 Business Jet. In most cases you get an update once a month, some cases even twice a month, but the functionality delivered is now showing, even if the featured vehicles change shape, scale and even models over the year.


This update v2.7 has some new additions, so it is worth a note...   Cockpit 3D modeling/textures/animations have again had an overhaul, which is a good thing, as it was the weakest area in the aircraft, also added are changeable side panels for the Pedestal Panel, EFB brightness control has also been added.


 The systems have had some (fine) tuning in electrical/air-conditioning/oxygen, as has the automatic speed control logic for the autopilot system. Also added is the FPA (Flight Path Angle) autopilot mode. Besides the new additions there has also been a load of fixes and adjustments including...


• Tuned engine startup sequence which should now better match the real aircraft(XP12)
• Antiice system working only when there is a AC and DC electric system (XP11/XP12)
• ENG anti-ice now works only when engine is running(XP11/XP12)
• Fixed EFB Simbrief integration bug with units(XP11/XP12)
• Fixed TOGA system logic(XP11/XP12)
• Fixed CAS system bugs(XP11/XP12)
• Fixed VNAV PATH logic(XP12/XP11)
• Fixed Minor MFD pages bugs(XP11/XP12)
• Fixed Bug with engine start logic(XP11)
• Fixed Audio Panel Fonts(XP11/XP12)
• Fixed Minor Autopilot bugs(XP11/XP12)
• Fixed Minor bugs(XP12/XP11)
As noted all were they can be applied are for both the X-Plane 12 and X-Plane 11 versions
