What happened to the Hawker?

Recommended Posts

It seems that after the 550 release, Carenado switched development focus to the Navajo, leaving the rest wondering #####? There haven't been any updated pictures since 2014!

Still working on the systems I think. Remember it'll have a navigraph updatable FMS so they need to code that.

Be interesting to see what the asking price is, they've been getting very close to premium addon pricing lately, but without the premium features to back it. This is their first aircraft that has an FMS backed by a proper database (Navigraph) so the jury is very much out on this one. Perhaps they'll finally nail IAS hold via pitch too!? And maybe even a proper layered paint kit?

 

I've been looking for a good business jet for sometime so I will seriously consider buying it, but I have a worrying feeling I'm going to be very disapointed when I see the first few bug and not simulated lists. I hope I'm proved wrong. At least the screenshots look promising, there's DME ARCs and other such erotica.

Still, I was hoping it would be released by today.  It's my birthday and I need a present for myself.  :lol:

I'm worried about the FMS. The citation won't do DTO. This is s must for a true FMS.

It's probably undergoing intensive testing followed by the relentless extermination of every last bug.

Well, it can go two ways. More time, getting it right (within reason), and charging a good and fair price. Or....not getting it right, trying to overcharge, and losing a lot of sales. Personally, I will opt for the long lead time to get the systems right --- but the experience with the Phenom makes me skeptical....this combined with the pay-for-partly-functional addon for the Citation....well, wait and see. <_<

I reckon they're bug fixing the issues of the Navigraph FMS picked up from the Citation FMS upgrade release.

 

I'd wager you'd see a patch for both the citations FMS and release of the Hawker nearly at the same time.

I don't get excited until a new board is created on avsim for the inbound bird. Only then will you know of it's imminent release! =P
