The Vans Aircraft Company proudly presents the latest and biggest project ever made, The "Boeing 717-200 The Last Legacy".

This model is a replica from the real one. Each and every detail are reproduced on this model without affecting frames per second and are based on flight and maintenance manuals from the aircraft. Flight dynamics (as usual Vans Air Co. aircraft) tested by real airline pilots and totally reliable on flight manuals and speed booklets.

This model characteristics are:

  • State of the art replica of the aircraft.
  • Full moving parts according to standards (flaps, ailerons, elevators, landing gear, stab trim, dynamic shine, etc.)
  • Wing views
  • Main door, front stairs, cargo bay door, captain window, flight deck doors and landing lights, each one with independent control.
  • High res textures.

We've combined photoreal textures with hi-res to accomplish great effects. The "eye candy effect" called parking mode has been improved providing ground services such as catering trucks, baggage belts, baggage trucks and fuel truck.

We've included two kind of model for those of you who prefer flying inside of virtual cockpit and for those who prefer without VC.

The VC model contains a highly clickable virtual cockpit. All the functions on the virtual cockpit are fully functional and animated, you can perform a complete flight from within the VC.

For the first time we include a 2D panel with the package. This panel is fully functional according to the real thing. It combines the GPS functionality at almost 100%. The panel includes a main window, throttle quadrant, FMC-GPS and overhead panel. Each LCD display performs almost all the functions as in the real 717. You can monitor the status of the plane.

This package includes the next liveries from major 717 operators around the globe:

  • AirTran
  • Midwest
  • Qantas Link
  • Impulse
  • Bangkok Airways
  • Trans World
  • Turkmenistan
  • Hawaiian Airlines
