Contrails Pro is a module for Microsoft Flight Simulator X and Microsoft Flight Simulator 2004 that adds realistic contrails to AI aircraft. Easily installed, it will instantly add beautiful, long, detailed contrails behind high-altitude AI aircraft in your Flight Simulator sky. You will no longer need a radar to see big airliners cruising above you!
Contrails Pro comes with its own optimized display engine, which allows displaying contrails in unprecedented detail while keeping high frame rates. When looking from a close distance, you will see the complex contrail structure thanks to the detailed textures supplied with the product. Just like in the real world, contrails will slowly dissipate in the air and will glow in red during sunrise or sunset.
There are excellent customization options allowing you to specify the contrail length, density, dispersion, minimum altitude for contrails to appear and a few other settings.
