PMDG Release BAe JetStream 4100 Turboprop Simulation

Posted on Mon, 23 May 2011 07:00:00 GMT

4100 JetstreamWith this release, PMDG have created a truly superb turboprop simulation that will provide you with entirely new mountains of learning to climb! The JetStream 4100 is "typically PMDG" in terms of systems detail and operating complexity, with detailed operating manuals, an introduction and tutorial in the release package.

The airplane has one of the most complex turboprop engine models yet created for FSX, and we are certain that you will spend some time learning new skills of engine and thrust management that are not required in jets...

The JetStream 4100 has served as a development testbed for some new technologies we've implemented to model virtual cockpits in astounding detail with the minimum FPS hit possible. With this cockpit, you can zoom right in on the finest details such as the black brushes that protect the throttle housings, and you will see virtually no loss in clarity even at high zoom levels.

We have implemented new features such as the PMDG Configuration Manager to help you match the simulation detail to the capabilities of your hardware, and we have launched a new feature known as the PMDG RAMP MANAGER to allow you to control non-aircraft animations and items such as engine plugs, chocks and a GPU.

In the air, you'll find amazing levels of system modeling, crisp, clear displays, a thorough simulation of the airplane's avionics right down to the Radio Management Units, and of course the engine modeling. You will find that managing engine temperature becomes a primary flight task and little things that you haven't paid much attention to in the past (such as punching into a cloud layer while climbing out) can change your entire approach to the flight. Changes in EGT when the anti-ice system is in operation, the availability of APR (Automatic Performance Reserve) for single engine operations, Negative Torque Sensing and Temperature Limiting Logic are all modeled in the usual PMDG style...

For those who enjoy flying in lousy weather, you will need to pay attention to the ice load on the airplane and operate the anti-icing equipment accordingly. To add realism, the icing model isn't just a fancy visual trick- we've added an icing accretion and sublimation model to accurately reflect how the airplane accumulates and loses ice in various flight conditions.

On the left side window- spend some time playing with the new PMDG LOAD MASTER SHEET to place passengers, cargo and carry on bags in your aircraft. Don't forget to correctly adjust the fuel reported on your load sheet- and then reach down between the seat and the center console to pull out the speed cards so that you can accurately compute your takeoff and landing speeds!

This simulation is very complete from power up to power down, and allows us to test out some new technology that comes to maturity in this product- and gives you a glimpse of what the future looks like in our upcoming PMDG 737NG2.0!

We are very pleased to have this airplane out to you at last- and we hope you will take advantage of all the free liveries that have been posted on our download pages. There will be more liveries to follow in the days ahead, as well as a user paintkit!
