Soviet Trijet Arrives in X-Plane

The Tupolev Tu-154 is now available for X-Plane 10.40 and above.

The Tu-154 was one of the most popular Russian-built jetliners during the Soviet era. It first flew in 1968 and during its 40-year production cycle more than 1000 airframes were built. The last example was delivered to the Russian Defence Ministry in in 2013.

The package for X-Plane 10 is a detailed study-simulation of the real Tu-154 with accurately modelled systems, performance data and flight dynamics. It was modelled on a real Tu-154M, EW-85748 (c/n 92A924), operated by Belavia Airlines and designed from original documents, blueprints, videos and with consultations from pilots, engineers and ground crew.

The aircraft comes with nine high-resolution liveries, a paint kit for creating custom artwork, ground crew and dynamic HDR lighting. The 3D cockpit is fully-functional with resizable 2D panels and bilingual markings, enabling you to switch from Russian to English.

It also features a menu system for operating the doors/stairs, summoning ground services, loading the aircraft and viewing checklist.
