Anyone heard any rumors about a new Fokker F100 Twin Jet

Recommended Posts

I keep hearing just tidbits that one of our favorite developer is working on an F-28-0100. This could be an exciting addition to our recent FSX/P3D introductions of twin turbines.

 

Ear to the ground!

That would be great. I love this plane. Pity the already existing payware addon doesn't have a VC

Thanks Fr.Bill.

 

So it is for real and Bill Ortis at Lionheart Creations is on it. See some early modeling here. Looks like an F70 and F100 model coming. Maybe Bill will make the little one with a corporate variant. I read someplace that Ford Motor Co got the first F70 off the line configured as a corporate aircraft in 1994.

I was really interested until Bill said he is not doing much in the way of systems.

 

We have one model of this aircraft with great systems and no VC and now one comes along with what will in all probability be a great VC but it is going to lack any realistic systems.

 

Such a shame really.

Thanks for the heads-up and the link. I admire LHC's work and dedication, but what is a F100 without its FMC, PROF and stuff?

Unless one has the time, resources and skills required, one will take a beating such as that currently being experienced by another group for their last two releases with less than adequate attempts...

 

Developing the Rockwell Collins DU-1000 EFIS displays is difficult enough, without throwing in the complexity of a fully-functional and updatable FMS.
