IXEG 737 Classic for X-Plane due Saturday, April 23, 2016
X-Aviation has released the following announcement:
“After six years in development, X-Plane’s most anticipated release is about to touch down and taxi to the gate. We’re ready to let you take command and explore the world with the IXEG 737 Classic! We’re officially announcing Saturday, April 23, 2016 as the release date.”
The announcement went on to provide the following information:
When we make announcements like this we make every attempt to get the product out close to midnight time the day of release. This means for some it may be Friday night if you are located in the USA. I cannot provide an exact time, but I would anticipate a release window between 12am-2am EST.
We will be announcing price (as we always do) once the product page is up and running. More details about the product as a whole will be there too.
There will be 20 liveries included upon release. They are:
• Air Berlin
• Air France
• Air Italy
• America West
• British Airways
• Delta Retro
• Lufthansa Retro
• Southwest New
• United (tulip)
• US Air
We will be including a paint kit at release time.
The package will come with quite a bit of documentation, but we don’t want this aircraft to be intimidating. Yes, it’s definitely a study level simulation, but the included tutorials come in PDF and video form. While there’s a lot to learn, we’ve made it as interactive and fun as possible for you. Reading big FCOMs can get rather boring to a lot of people, so we hope you enjoy this! We also recommend Mike Rays 737 handbook as a compliment to this product. His book is excellent and works quite nicely as a follow along guide for this product!
To celebrate this event, a preview video of the IXEG 737 Classic has been released.
