ATLANTA, Georgia, July 19, 2013 - Flight One Software announced today that they have released the most advanced King Air add-on aircraft ever developed for Microsoft® Flight Simulator X.
“The Flight 1 Beechcraft Super King Air B200 sets a new bar for flight simulation systems development and design,” says Flight One Vice-President Jim Rhoads. “It includes a Garmin G1000 avionics retrofit, advanced systems modeling, a maintenance module, and a custom-coded Android application that simulates the GCU 477 MFD controller. There’s really nothing else like this package on the market.”
The Flight1 B200 features a Blackhawk XP52 engine upgrade package. Two factory-new P&W PT6A-52 engines (the same engines used in factory-new 200GTs) provide an increased climb rate, a higher single-engine service ceiling, and a max cruise speed in excess of 310 knots.
“It’s the fastest King Air you can get for Flight Simulator X,” says Rhoads. “And it’s certified for single pilot operation. It’s a deep simulation of a complex aircraft that you could actually fly all by yourself.”
The Flight1 B200 features a highly realistic simulation of the real-world B200’s electrical, pneumatic, fuel, pressurization, and oxygen systems. It also includes a brake system that simulates brake wear over time, and a simulated ice protection system that has a purpose: forget to use it and ice buildup on the aircraft will cause flight model changes and failures.
G1000 features include realistic lateral and vertical autopilot and flight director modes (with support for fully coupled WAAS approaches), TAWS and traffic displays and alerting, SafeTaxi®-like airport diagrams on the PFD and MFD maps, in-aircraft creation and modification of flight plans, an updatable worldwide Navigraph navigation database, and a B200-specific Engine Indication System.
Also included in the package is a Maintenance Module that monitors aircraft usage at the system level and persistently tracks wear and tear on the engines, propellers, tires, brakes, and flaps. The engines consume oil when they are running, and engine mismanagement on the ground will damage them. Using the Maintenance Module, pilots can make line service requests, make repairs, and enable or disable individual wear and damage features. Less ambitious pilots who just want to fly can disable these features altogether.
The Flight1 B200 also features a custom-coded Android application that simulates the GCU 477 remote keypad controller. The app allows pilots with Android tablets and larger cell phones to control the MFD remotely, over a network. Using it saves screen real estate, is more realistic, and has no impact on performance.
“We’ve been working on the B200 for a while now, and we’re excited to finally release it,” says Rhoads. “It’s the perfect add-on aircraft for a pilot who likes the complexity of an airliner, but wants to operate in a single pilot GA environment.”
