This is an update of the A400M by Patrick LE Luyer and repainted by Stephen Browning. The 2D panel background has been redone so it is a bit more like the VC, and gauges have been changed and added to it so it is more user friendly. The flight dynamics have been updated so it will reach 37,000 feet, if you want to, and so it will fly at mach 0.72 at 29,000 feet and at up to 16x time compression. The rest of the wheels have been added and the contact points and lights changed as necessary. This is the whole aircraft. By Bob Chicilo.

Unzip to a folder of your choice. Copy the aircraft folder to the main FS airplanes folder. Copy the effect to the main FS effects folder.

If you have not already done so, copy the .cab files from the default aircraft panel folders that have them to the main FS gauges folder. For some the .cab flies will be .zip files, as .cab files are a type of zip file.

The effect is for landing and taxi lights. It won't show from the cockpit and won't brighten or reflect off the ground textures; but it looks better than no lights.

[Reference Speeds]
cruise_speed=430.0 //knots over the ground at 29,000 ft. (285 indicated, mach 0.72)
max_level_speed= 475.00 knots //knots over the ground at 29,000 ft. (320 indicated mach 0.80)

The above is an easy reference to set cruise speed and altitude.

The hardest part of the update was realizing that record 1545 had to be changed to be able to use the correct wing area and still have the aircraft have enough lift for an easy take off.

Amazing plane flys great, is a blast to fly with. The attention to detail is top notch for this. This could be payware in my opinion.
