News! - Aircraft Coming : Hawk T1/A Advanced Trainer by Just Flight/Thranda

 

Usually most developers stay within their designated basic genres in X-Plane and only a few develop outside that envelope. But Just Flight with Thranda are going to shake up that theory. Already known for their excellent GA's with the Arrow lll/lV series, their next release is a light jet? and not only a light jet but the Hawk T1/A Advanced Trainer!

Model
 
  • Accurately modelled Hawk T1 and T1A, built using real-world aircraft plans
  • Numerous animations including a storage hatch, ram air turbine (RAT), canopy and crew ladder
  • Ground equipment including chocks, access steps and engine intake covers
  • 4096 x 4096 textures are used to produce the highest possible texture clarity
  • PBR (Physically Based Rendering) materials with real-time environment reflections for superb quality and realism
  • Detailed normal mapping for down-to-the-rivet precision of aircraft features

Cockpit
 
  • A truly 3D virtual cockpit right down to accurately modelled ejector seats and screw heads - every instrument is constructed fully in 3D with smooth animations
  • Cockpit textures feature wear and tear based on reference photos taken in the real aircraft to produce an authentic environment
  • Interactive checklists for every stage of flight
  • Aircraft configuration system that will allow you to choose between 'cold & dark' or 'ready for take-off' (if aircraft is stationary on the ground)

  • Flight computer panel with useful information such as fuel burn, endurance, speed and wind speed/direction
  • GoodWay compatible
  • Ability to change barometric units from InHg to MB in altimeter adjustment
  • Option to remove canopy and instrument reflection effects
  • Animated toe brakes
  • Radio knob animations routed through plug-in logic, for optimum movement fidelity and sound synchronisation

Aircraft systems
 
  • Custom-coded electrical system with AC and DC resets and loads
  • Realistic landing gear with slow/fast tyre rotation animation (blurry when rotating fast), precise shock absorber animation and wheel chocks
  • Custom-coded hydraulic systems, including functioning RAT
  • Realistic lighting system with rheostat controls
  • Custom external light logic with custom strobe light pattern and custom light halos for added realism

And this is a good news ! There is a lack of those marvelous jets in every sim!

Glad to be able to sit into one few... years ago. Nice office for training.

 

Any feedback on the Just Flight model ?

 

Thanks :)
