Just Flight announce Fokker 70 &100

Recommended Posts

In not entirely unexpected(*) news Just Flight have announced they'll be following their upcoming Fokker 28 with its younger siblings the Fokker 70 & 100.

Work has already started by planes ahead of it in the queue have priority so we won't be doing it this year

(*) I say "not entirely unexpected" as it's the same thing as is happening with the JF Bae146 and the Avro RJ.

Nice.  Their BAe 146 was very good.  If the Fokker 70 & 100 have the same level of fidelity as their BAe 146, this will be another excellent airliner for MSFS.

Great news! The Fokker 70 & 100 are still widely used in Australia (Virgin Australian, Qantas Link, and Alliance Airlines), New Guinea (Air Nuigini - Looking forward to this one).

This is great.  Their BAE 146 is one of the best airliners I’ve flown, and I will have no hesitation making these upcoming aircraft day one purchases.  The only downside is the wait!  But good things come to those who wait right?

I remember years ago really enjoying the Digital Aviation Fokker 100 for FS2004 back in the day. This will be a trip down memory lane!

Also JF's Facebook post content:
"Just like in real-life, we will be following development of our Fokker F28 Fellowship for MSFS with its younger brother, the Fokker 100 and shortened Fokker 70. Built with incredible detail to take full advantage of the MSFS platform, the exterior and cockpit modelling and texturing work is progressing very well, and we are aiming for a 2023 release.

Won't be long before we add this to our In Development Section and start giving you regular updates but as is always the way the visuals get a good head-start of the coding side of things, work is underway but other projects such as the F28 are ahead in that particular queue. Certainly one to look out for though. Enjoy these initial shots."

Weird. It works when I click on it. Maybe try searching for 'itvv fokker 100' in google.

Awesome!

I once had the opportunity to fly on an American Airlines F100 that was BRAND new - the pilot said we were it’s second revenue flight ever, the first being the hop from Chicago to Cincinnati that morning and we were flying back on it to Chicago...I still remember how pristine the interior looked and smelled and how the wings themselves didn’t have a spec of dirt or atain on them.

Will be buying this!

Great, but do not abandonware my 146, ok?

Why would a developer announcing new products, mean they'll abandon current products?   JF have updated the 146 keenly since release.   I think they've really proven they're not the developer that abandons current addons.

I don´t affirm that, 146 has a lot to work still to do it, I think and hope JF is not so, I could tell you others that yes, just in case.
