News! - X-Crafts show new E-Jets Family renders


News header _ X-Craft E-Jet.jpg


There is always debate around of what developers should develop, some developers create different and varied aircraft, but a few stay on the same designs and focus just on that design....  a good thing or a bad thing? Like I said it is debatable.


X-Crafts have focused a lot on the Embraer series of E-Jets, and we are going back as far as August 2014 (announced as early as May 2013) with X-Crafts release of their first E-Jet in the ERJ 195LR. Since then there have a lot of numerous updates to this basically dated design and we are currently up to version v2.4.


In the last few years X-Crafts have focused on their Embraer ERJ Family of the 135/140/145/145XR and Legacy 650. With this release came a huge step of quality and aircraft design from X-Crafts, in that step making the older E-Jet versions now looking dated, even if they were very good on release...  but X-Plane waits for no designer, it demands more and more, and so in that context X-Crafts are now redeveloping their original E-Jet's to meet the same standards or in this case do another step forward in quality and design detail.


Features noted include new highly detailed and accurate models of the interior and exterior, authentic FMS, enhanced systems, but the biggest feature is the inclusion of a "authentic FMS", this aspect has been a compromise on X-Crafts aircraft with the hybrid Tekton FMS, clever as it is, it not a fully formed authentic FMS system... this aspect alone is worth the update.


So X-Crafts have released some WIP (Work in Progress) images of the renders of the coming new X-Craft E-Jet series with all E170 / E175 / E190 / E195 / Lineage 1000 variants included.

An estimated release date of the new E-Jet Family or pricing (expect the same as the ERJ Family)  hasn’t been noted at yet by the X-Crafts. However, the developer has confirmed that existing users of the E175 and E195 will be subject to a discount upon release.


But I would expect a release around mid-year 2021.
