Freighter version??? :sob::sob::sob:


Great job hans, thanks for the continued support of this gem!

Now on to the CRJ pleeease :grin::+1:t4:


Anyone know if the climb rate and cruise speed have been fixed on this? I have not been able to get the aircraft over 200 KIAS above FL180 in the CRZ power selection.

EDIT: Still doesnt seem to be fixed, lackluster climb and cruise speed using the CLB and CRZ detents. The issue with the checklist spilling off the display still an issue as well. Really a shame, its such an nicely modelled aircraft and has so much potential, but its just plagued by so many QOL bugs…

Are you comparing your performance to a published performance chart?

I was just flying the 42 this AM at well in excess of 200 IAS at 20000’.

I have been doing a significant amount of my flying in the 42 lately and haven’t had any issue like this at all.

Is that a 72 issue? (I’ve not flown the 72)

Yes, this is in the 72-600

Haven’t flown it in a while. But from what I remember, the 42 could do even 210 in crz at that altitude given it’s not too heavily loaded. The 72 on the other hand struggled to go past 200.

But it didn’t bother me much as if i saw the TAS is near or around 250kts, it seemed ok from what I understand from my limited research about these birds.


I am - per the perf data, would be expecting to see close to 1000fpm at 210kts to FL240, and around 275kts at cruise FL240. Not getting anywhere near those numbers in the 72-600 lightly loaded, more like 400fpm in climb at 210kts, and hovering around 210 max TAS during cruise at altitude, while in the appropriate power detent.

Are you sure that’s not mentioned in TAS?

I am not claiming to be an expert but the number seems too high from my limited research. The climb rate may be a bit less than expected, but it climbs at 170kts usually, not 210 kts.


I get cruise speeds in the 270s TAS but never IAS.

If you are getting your data from this page (matches your numbers)

Then note the crz speed is in TAS, not IAS.

Edit: ok, I see this is probably not the -600 version. But I don’t expect the number to be that different.

“Fixed V/ILS 2 nav source selector does not arm autopilot to follow VOR 2”

I thought I was going crazy. Thank you


Thank you for update. Great aircraft. My favourite.


Is there anything known that installed liveries could cause problems with the new update. My sim just crashed with full force with a Canada livery. It was some kind of graphical error that was displayed. Unfortunately I was too confused to write it down exactly… :frowning:

What about the issues with the prop brake?

Good shout that

Is someone able to confirm if the VNAV descent path is now working?

Which issue?
