    Cheers

  • @Martyn till we wait for the release I'd like to ask if the performance charts are included to set up the power settings for take off, climb, etc?

    Thanks


  • JF Staff

    I don't think we were able to include them in the PDF manual but I'll see if it's possible to include them in a separate PDF.



  • Hi Martyn, thank you for your reply and my apologies for my bad english but, what I was asking was if we can use real world performance data from the VC-10 to setting up , for example, the throttles for take off. Thanks.

    Our FDEs are developed using real world performance data/manuals so you should certainly be able to use them for reference.

    Thanks

  • @Martyn

    Hi Martin,

    Thank you very much for your swift reply, I look forward to the release of the VC 10 Pro very much. It will help me very much as I am a Volunteer at the Cornwall Aviation Heritage Centre at Newquay Airport and we have VC10 K3 ZA148 intact.

    The VC 10 Sim will help with showing visitors around the aircraft.

    Best Regards

  • Looks great - any chance of a BUA and a British Caledonian livery?

    The livery list on the in-development page is a complete list for the base pack, but we'll include a paint kit and also consider producing new liveries if there is sufficient demand and interest in the product.



  • Really disappointed - as a very loyal Just Flight customer who already bought the VC-10, I've not received a discount code. Am I not elligible? If not, why not?

    All existing VC10 Jetliner owners should have received an email. Please contact scott@justflight.com and he'll be able to sort you out with a code.



  • @Martyn Many thanks -purchased now!

    Martyn,

    Did the performance charts or equivalent get into the release?

  • The VC10 is widely regarded as one of the most graceful jet airliners ever created, with its long slim fuselage, clean angled-back wings and graceful swept-back tail surfaces.VC10 Professional for FSX and P3D includes accurately modelled Standard and Super civilian variants and C1K, K3 and K4 military variants of the VC10 in a variety of liveries covering their time in airline and RAF service.
    You can get more detailed description here ,such as cockpit ,systems and liveries and so on.
