We are excited to v0.4.1 of the CJ4! This contains a bunch of bug fixes as well as an exciting addition to our sounds - specifically the Passenger Briefing Announcements.
While we fully expect to have to release ANOTHER update after the impending Asobo update, this work was all done, so we figured we’d make it available anyhow…

Working Title CJ4 v0.4.1 Changes
Welcome to the latest update of the Working Title CJ4 (v0.4.1). This is still very much a beta. Thank you to everyone who contributed to this release.
Feel free to test out our new Simbrief Profile: SIMBRIEF PROFILE
Installation is easy, simply copy the
workingtitle-aircraft-cj4 folder inside the zip file to your MSFS Community folder.
Important: We recommend that you fully delete the previous
workingtitle-aircraft-cj4 folder before copying this release.
- Added Passenger Briefing Announcements (accessed from MFD Upper Menu and PASS BRIEF BUTTON)
- Fixed bugs with engine thrust when engines off (#222)
- Adjusted flight dynamics to minimize (but not eliminate) the AP porpoising effect (#163)
- Fixed V Speed bug (where v speeds would become stuck at -1 after landing)
- Updated CAS messages (#242)
- Sound Updates/Fixes
- FMS Bug Fixes
- Thrust when engines off bug squashed (#222)
- Adjusted elevator trim effectiveness to reduce porpoising and facilitate (careful) FLC usage
- Fixed bug when adding airways (#226) (thanks @tscharlii )
- Fixed bug where invalid waypoints didn’t always cause an error
- Updated distances to show decimals under 100NM
- Fixed reversed XTK and CROSSWIND indications on Page 2
- Added input filters for QNH on takeoff and landing perf pages (user can now enter 29.92, 299 or 2992)
- Added protection for TAKEOFF and APPROACH REF pages when no runway is selected (error message will appear)
- Fixed weight calculation issues (#241)
- Fixed FMS Text distances on MFD (#232)
- Added PASS BRIEF announcements
- Fixed V Speed bug where some speeds were locked at -1 after a segment (#221)
- Fixed MFD plane not centered on map (#219)
- Updated CAS messages for Pitot Heat, Parking Break and Oxy Masks (#242 and #183)
- Fixed no chime when playing seatbelt announcement
- Fixed erroneous chimes when setting battery master to on
- Fixed sounds for internal/external view swaps/fixed passenger sounds stopping when switching to outside view
- Added passenger briefing announcements (MFD)
- Fixed announcements to restrict to only one announcement at a time
- Improvements to climate control knob sound
- Modifications of the flight plan can be slow at times. The cause for this is Asobo’s FacilityLoader which they need to fix. When the FMC shows “Working…” it indicates an operation is in progress.
- Sometimes when entering an airway and the exit fix, the airway name will change to the shared airway, however the routing is still correct.
- You cannot currently select Direct-To of a fix on your approach that is not the initial approach fix. This is a limitation of the sim flightplan system at present. We are currently overhauling the flight plan management system to allow for much more flexibility and stability.
- After using Direct-To, the navigation will not always automatically sequence to the next fix and may enter ROL mode. You can re-activate NAV to navigate to the next fix if you encounter this issue.
- The aircraft is still using the built-in MSFS autopilot (for now). All the existing limitations of that still apply. It does behave a bit better with the various enhancements applied.
- FLC stability appears to have regressed with the autopilot aircraft energy calculation changes in 1.9.3. We have made some improvements to this behavior in this update. We will continue to investigate after the 13 October 2020 patch is released.
- Some flight plan distances are still misreported when the approach is activated. We will look at this more carefully after the Asobo update.
