FlightFactor 767 Released for X-Plane!

1

Flight Factor have gone and released their latest addition to their Library for X-Plane, It’s the Boeing 767-300ER!

They’re charging PMDG prices for it so I’d imagine that it must be very detailed. It’s also a Boeing Officially Licensed Product so a level of detail must have been achieved.

The Boeing 767 is part of the Professional Series, the most in-depth sim add-on for X-Plane to date. Systems depth, the most important aspect of flight simulation – are taken to a whole new level.

Brought to you by a team of professional coders, designers and pilots with years of experience in X-Plane.

  • Officially licensed by the Boeing © Corporation
  • Suitable for beginners – Quick start mode (all systems ready) and tutorials modes
Boeing
  • Great for advanced users – Complex systems are simulated
  • The most advanced X-Plane 10 Airliner

Flexible Options

  • A very flexible architecture : You chose the set up
  • Different options for many avionics instruments including two types of FMC.
  • Options to composite your own EICAS, EADI and EHSI displays.
  • Most of the options included in the real 767

Checklists and ‘Autohelper’

  • Full electronic interactive checklist with automatic action detection.
  • Automatic mode ‘Helper’  who performs all the actions for you, you just CHECK the items.
  • A tutorial which shows the user what to do and when.

Perfected Flight model

  • Accurate flight model, as close as it gets to real performance. Tested by real pilots and translated to X-Plane
  • A dynamic and customizable center of gravity that depends on actual cargo and passenger load

Fully Functional Professional FMS and EFIS System

  • Custom Flight Management Computer, integrated with other plane systems.
  • Custom programmed LNAV logic for terminal procedures from updatable database.
  • VNAV-managed climbs and descends.
  • Optimum cruise performance and step climb calculation.
  • Two independent analogue instrument sets for captain and first officer.
  • Two independently simulated EFIS (EADI/EHSI configuration) for captain and first officer.
  • Dual-FMS with two independently working CDUs.
  • Working instrument comparators.
  • Triple IRS and triple symbol generator systems with realistic instrument source switching.
  • Dual air-data computers with custom failure modes and source switching.
  • Independent 2 nav and an ils recievers.
  • Realistic inertial, radio and GPS position updating, you can see the individual inaccuracies of those systems.
  • Triple-channel autopilot with realistic dependencies.
  • Fail operational and fail passive auto land with mode degradations based on system failures.
  • Load company routes generated by Professional FlightPlanner X (or other compatible programs) directly into the FMC.
  • FMC can be used on external touchscreen or tablet, optimized for the Retina iPad.

Custom Systems and Failure model

  • Detailed and deep simulation of almost every system in the real aircraft.
  • Custom air and pressure system.
  • Electrical system with all AC and DC busses modeled – see which system depends on which bus.
  • Hydraulic system that uses a little fluid when treated correctly and a lot of fluid if used incorrectly.
  • Multistage custom failure system – over 200 more failures than X-Plane.
  • Ability to fix failure by following proper procedure.
  • Persistent failure and maintenance system. Aircraft wear and misuse will carry over to your next flight.

Warning system and radars

  • Fully functional GPWS with all the modes the real plane has.
  • Fully functional terrain radar, with custom database (just like the real plane), a look-ahead warning system and many other features.
  • Weather radar that works like the real thing. Including tilt and gain functions, ground clutter, turbulence detection and windshear prediction.

3D Modeling

  • Accurate dimensions based on exterior drawings provided by Boeing.
  • Very detailed exterior modelling with high resolution textures.
  • Very high resolution 3D cockpit with every switch functional.
  • Spatial rain simulation with high detail.
  • Very detailed passenger cabin graphics including galleys.
  • Additional graphic features: real working oxygen masks both in cockpit and cabin, dynamic window blinds that react to sunlight etc.
  • New and improved wingflex.

Special effects

  • Multilayer dynamic reflections on all glass objects.
  • Reflective metal and plastic objects in the cockpit.
  • Glossy exterior that reflects the outside.
  • XP weather enhancements like custom windshear.

Advanced Custom Sounds

  • A Pro sound pack by BSS.
  • Several hundred custom sounds.
  • In-cockpit custom sounds.
  • Switches with individual sounds.
  • Many individual system sound inside and outside.
  • Airport environment sounds.
  • Cabin sounds.
  • 3D stereo sound system for engines.
  • In flight cabin announcements.
  • Interactive communication with the cabin crew (reporting misconfigurations and passenger comfort problems).

On Screen menus

  • An tablet-like menu popping-up from the cockpit.
  • Custom pages for loading/unloading fuel, cargo and passengers, customizing the CG, calling for pushback and performing maintenance.
  • Ability to customize the plane with winglets, reflection level, wingflex level and set other options to be saved or default.
  • Ground equipment and door pages.
  • Failure monitoring menu.

Extra objects

  • Working push-back truck – Fully controllable with your joystick.
  • Passenger bus and stairs or optional gate configuration (passengers can be loaded from gate instead of bus).
  • Fuel truck, de-Icing truck, GPU, ground-start units both visible and fully functional with airplane systems.
  • Other ground equipment.
