The bitmap and original gauge credit for this panel goes soley to Ken Mitchell. It utilises some of Ken's original gauges and some of the default FSX ones. This version is purely for FSX and includes the Dreamwings Embraer ERJ-170 for FSX and associated sounds, the aircraft is painted in Jaguar Virtual Livery by Alex Barrett.

Editorial

The Embraer range is one that I know quite well, having used their services in the past and in a simulated environment. However, one thing I would say is that my knowledge of the Jaguar is something that is quite limited – thanks to this package, though, that has changed a little!

The Design

I grabbed this interesting and freshly designed FSX livery because it looked pretty unique. The bitmap and the original gauges included were created by Ken Mitchell, the developer of the original model. On that front, this looks excellent and gives you something fresh and exciting that adds something a bit different to the cockpit. However, it does use some default FSX gauges as well so you should find it easy enough to get to grips with how this handles itself.

The livery designed here, though, looks excellent. The attention to the detail in general is a great add-on and does a lot for bringing the entire image together. The scale and the attention to the minor patterns and fixtures makes a massive difference, making a nice change from the rather listless original model and adding another layer of realism to the entire package – it’s an impressive and considered design.

The Realism

More importantly, though, the aircraft comes with the right scale and style. Everything is put on in the right fashion and it all combines together to look fresh and effective. Not only does this make the associated sounds which has been included sound even better, but they now fit with what is actually going on in front of you that little bit more impressive.

I would have to say that this is one of my more enjoyable liveries to use when I use this Embraer aircraft and will likely continue to do so. If you want a fresh and exciting livery package that has changed the level of detail and attention to detail quiet dramatically, try this out.

Looks good, but the auto throttle does not engage. Not good on those long flights. Shame this was not tested before posting on this site.
