The triple role TriStar – airline, freighter and tanker! The TriStar excelled as a medium-to-long range civilian airliner and would go on to enjoy an extended lease of life in several different roles with the Royal Air Force. This new collection from Just Flight now gives FSX pilots the chance to fly this magnificent tri-jet in all its most popular incarnations - civilian airliner, military transport and refuelling tanker.

 

Financial setbacks and development problems with its Rolls-Royce RB211 engines meant that it lost out to the rival DC-10 in commercial sales, but the TriStar was a technologically advanced aircraft that remains an aviation icon. This new L-1011 TriStar collection pays homage to this much loved tri-jet with four superbly modelled airliner and military variants in a total of 25 paint schemes.

 

The aircraft feature accurately detailed 2D panels and virtual cockpits complete with refuelling controls on the tanker variants, a fully functioning Inertial Navigation System, stunning high-resolution textures and an authentic flight model with the TriStar’s unique Direct Lift Control runway approach system.

 

Features:

·         Four TriStar variants included: L-1011-500 civilian airliner, RAF C2 (passenger), RAF K1 (passenger/air-to-air tanker) and RAF KC1 (cargo/air-to-air tanker).

·         25 Paint schemes with high-resolution 2048 x 2048 textures.

·         Accurate virtual cockpit featuring INS, autopilot, radio suite and functional annunciators - 2D panel with numerous pop-ups also available.

·         Precisely detailed external models with animated flying surfaces, landing gear, airbrakes, engine cowlings and doors.

·         Accurately modelled and animated hose-and-drogue in-flight refuelling system on the K1 and KC1 tanker variants with refuelling controls on the Engineer’s panel.

·         Custom sound set from Turbine Sound Studios delivers the full force of the three Rolls-Royce RB211 turbofans.

·         Comprehensive 100-page printed manual including full flight tutorial.

·         Accurate flight dynamics closely replicate the real TriStar’s performance, including its unique automated Direct Lift Control system for smoother landing approaches.
