Aerosoft F-14 Extended
Authentic, yet accessible, design.
The Aerosoft F-14 X was designed with two principle objectives. The first was to create an authentic and detailed representation about what it was like to fly the early model F-14's and the refinements made over the first 20 years of the airframe's service life. The second was to create an accessible simulation for all users.
Advanced flight systems and dynamics.
While many of the advanced systems will require you to RTFM to operate effectively, anyone can be in the air within seconds of loading the sim (well maybe a little longer if you're setting up a carrier launch). While failure logic, such as engine compressor stalls are included, they will not become active and take out an engine unless you enable the feature.
The only thing you can't simplify are the flight mechanics. Not a single tester or developer was un-challenged when attempting to trap this bird. But, the physics are consistent and based on real world data. As you learn why the F-14 does or does not respond the way you think it should, your intuition of flight mechanics will be become more sophisticated. Simply put, if you learn to fly this aircraft with a serious perspective, you will become a better pilot.
Users who own TacPack (by Vertical Reality Simulations) will be able launch payloads including the F-14's potent beyond visual range capabilities. With TCS you can focus on any radar locked target and enable visual target identification at a range of 10nm.
- Three generations of the A model F-14 as well as the more refined B model.
- Automated Checklists for Pre-Start, Start, Post-Start, Taxi, Run-up, Take-off, Approach, and Post-Landing
- High quality visual- and flights systems
- Moving aircraft carriers
- Approach Rating system which evaluates how well pilots set their aircraft up for a visual approach
Please note that many of the features (carrier operations etc.) are only usable for users of FSX Gold, FSX Acceleration and Prepar3D. These functions will not work on FSX SP2 (that’s the original released FSX with the two Service Packs)
