Supersonic flying lessons with the ultimate flight deck DVD now included!
Just Flight's Concorde Professional is coming soon and the company can now confirm further details on the boxed edition of what is roundly anticipated as Phoenix Simulation's finest development yet.
As Phoenix Simulation (PSS) release the download package of their Concorde expansion for Flight Simulator 2004, Just Flight have finalised plans for what is expected to be a very special boxed edition.
The first release of Concorde Professional will be a limited edition and include a 160-page printed manual in a double-depth case. Most excitingly of all it will also include a free feature-length DVD, made in conjunction with British Airways and filmed from the cockpit of Concorde using seven cameras!
The bundled DVD provides an exclusive view from the flight deck of a flight from London Heathrow to New York JFK.
Produced by ITVV in co-operation with British Airways, this DVD is the first half of ITVV's acclaimed double-disc DVD set of British Airways Concorde.
This prestigious documentary programme on the world's fastest civil airliner, Concorde is presented by Captain David Rowland and Senior Flight Engineer Roger Bricknell, as they take you on a full guided tour of this incredible aircraft.
David and Roger start by introducing you to Concorde outside the hangar at London Heathrow. You are taken around the outside of the aircraft to show you the many unique features that Concorde possesses. Roger gives you a detailed 'Walk Around' explaining what he is looking for during his inspection. David explains the nose and visor system which you see working.
You fly a trip from London Heathrow to New York's JFK airport. During the flight David and Roger guide you through the systems that enable this aircraft to fly at twice the speed of sound. You are shown in detail the procedures required to achieve and cruise at 1350 mph.
Other topics covered include Checklist procedures, fuel transfer and the effects of centre of gravity changes and many more details. This programme was filmed using a total of nine cameras to give you the best views of all phases of flight. Additionally, viewers will be treated to crystal clear audio utilising the aircraft's audio system. This is the most detailed look at Concorde that has ever been produced - the running time of this disc is over two hours!
All in all this promises to be a very special release indeed and amazing value at an expected retail price of £34.99 or approximately €55 and $60 respectively for the entire package.
