News! - Aircraft Announcement - ERJ 170 LR by Supercritical Simultions Group

SSG (Supercritical Simultions Group) have announced their next project as the E-170 LR. This not the standard current E170 but the new E-Jet Evolution” series aircraft.


Based and heavily revised on their current SSG E-Jet series (E-170 and E-190) and incorporating a lot of elements of the SSG Boeing 748 series features, the new aircraft is due as noted late this late 1stQ or early 2ndQ of 2016.

Feature list noted is:

  • Accurate 3D external model complete with detailed animations and textures.
  • Many detailed liveries upon release with any subsequent liveries available as free downloads.
  • Aircraft will meet most of the real aircraft's performance data for consumption, AOA, speeds, flight dynamics, etc. in close consultation with real world E-Jet pilots.
  • Realistic 3D cockpit with high resolution in all render settings.
  • Realistic displays (PFD, MFD with system synoptics, and EICAS).
  • Many systems are implemented with realistic logic, such as electrical, hydraulic, pneumatic, engine fire extinguishing, fuel, wing and engine anti-ice (including automatic mode), communications, and TCAS.
  • Electronic checklist system that can automatically detect certain aircraft configuration changes.
  • Comprehensive autopilot functioning in modes similar to those of the real aircraft
  • External lights and strobes operating realistically.
  • Display management similar to that in the real aircraft.
  • First Officer's MFD display is independent from the Captain's, and MFD has a pop-up option.
  • EICAS messages based on the real aircraft's with lists and scrolling.
  • Autobrakes with anti-skid system that works in all conditions and includes a realistic rejected takeoff mode.
  • Realistic wing flex and other animations.
  • Window rain effects and animated wipers.
  • Option Menu incorporated into the cockpit VSD.
  • Ground vehicles include a tow truck, fuel truck, GPU and airstairs.
  • 3D sounds with DreamEngine plugin.
  • Turbine Sound Studio sounds recorded from the real aircraft.

Custom built-in FMC and Navigation systems (subject to change) including:

  • FMC made by FJCC especially for the SSG Evolution Series, including SIDs, STARs, transitions, approaches, flare and rollout modes.
  • FMC is compatible with AeroSoft's NavDataPro and Navigraph navigation databases.
  • Manufacturer's performance data embedded as tables in the fully functional FMC.
  • Option to use either a 2D pop-up (resizable) FMC or one within the 3D cockpit.
  • Custom radio communication audio consoles optimized for on-line virtual ATC operations.
  • FMC performance information based on real aircraft data, including calculated V-speeds.
  • FMC includes capability for autotuning navaid frequencies.
  • Vertical Situation Display (VSD) on the ND.
  • Terrain display mode on the ND, which is a part of the Enhanced Ground Proximity Warning System (EGPWS) on the real aircraft.
  • Comprehensive Flight Crew Operation Manual (FCOM) and a Quick Start Guide.

The E-Jet Evolution Series is designed for X-Plane 10 and will be compatible with Windows, Mac and Linux.
