News! - Pre-Release : Harrier AV8B by X-Trident


X-Trident have given us an early Christmas present with a Pre-Release (Early Adopter) version of their Harrier AV8B. The aircraft is available now for the price of USD$38.95, see below for the X-Plane.OrgStore link when available.


Note... this purchase of the Harrier aircraft is in reality a BETA version and not a completed release aircraft, so items, systems and certain areas are still under development... the full release development completion is expected around mid-January 2019...  so don't buy the aircraft if you want a full release aircraft and any early purchase will come with these conditions. The aircraft is compatible only with X-Plane 11.30.


Please refer to the X-Plane.Org  support forum for questions and to report issues
