The F27 'Friendship' was designed and first flown in the 1950s and is still in service today, such is its reliability and versatility.
This package for FSX, FSX: Steam Edition and P3D includes the -100, -200 and -300 variants along with 12 high quality airline liveries from around the globe and combines all the latest modelling and texturing techniques with accurate flight dynamics and realistic sounds to bring you an authentic simulation of this iconic aircraft!
Each model has been built over the most accurate available plans and the unique ear-piercing sound of the Rolls-Royce Dart turboprop engines is are faithfully reproduced.
An authentic virtual cockpit has been built with ease of operation in mind and reflects a typical example of the aircraft. Also included are boarding steps, a baggage tug with its trollies and a Ground Power Unit (GPU) with sound.
Highly functional 3D cockpits with virtually all of the hundreds of switches, knobs and levers animated and functional. Many gauges are modelled in 3D for smooth operation.
Equipment and features are drawn from a number of types to give the best combination of features and usability.
Full cockpit lighting with atmospheric instrument backlighting.
Special 'baked' textures have been used to present a well-used look and feel to the cockpit area and controls.
Avionics include autopilot functionality from the operating period with NAV and ILS approaches, VOR and ADF receivers and displays, transponder and a full communications suite.
Many features have been added to help with 'usability' such as switches to hide the control yokes for a better view of the instruments and pre-set angled views for the overhead panel, throttle quadrant and radios.
Numerous warning annunciators will illuminate on fault detection and a fully functional engine fire warning and protection/extinguishing system are built into the cockpit. If you get an engine fire warning, pull the fire handle and the fire will be extinguished.
Electrical systems have been authentically modelled to enable correct engine starts.
Instruments include all the regular flying necessities including Artificial Horizon Indicator (AHI) with flight director, fully functional Horizontal Situation Indicator (HSI) with dual Navigation capability, VOR and ADF, Radio Altimeter and a full working suite of engine gauges.
Full avionics and comms package included with detailed, tuneable radio heads and realistic digit read-outs.
The F27 can be flown IFR and is capable of ILS approaches and all conventional navigation procedures.
The characteristic HPC (High Pressure Cock) lever control system is simulated including the 'flight-fine' and 'below lock' propeller warning lights.
Realistic 'cold and dark' cockpit starts are possible.
Unique seat-view adjustment utility panel allows infinite settings for the preferred view position when in the cockpit.
Pre-set camera views for all essential stations.
Comprehensive electrical and fuel system panels.
On/Off nose-wheel steering and authentic flap selection, trimming and other controls are simulated.
Operating blinking oxygen supply indicator
Windscreens are textured with reflective effects and display 'Perspex splintering' when viewed in direct sunlight.
Specular map to give realistic light effects on the aircraft surfaces
Bump mapping to give a more realistic 3D effect to aircraft liveries

The distinctive whistling Rolls-Royce Dart turboprop engine sounds have been captured to give the utmost realism in full stereo along with switch click and knob effect sounds.
A comprehensive cockpit guide and flight tutorial is provided in illustrated PDF format.
A professional standard paint kit (46MB) for all three models can be downloaded from the Just Flight F27 Support page so you can create your own liveries.
"I found the F27 a very enjoyable aircraft to fly, and the systems, including the modelling of the HPC and fuel trim, make it a plausible simulation of the real Fokker... If you prefer old-school hands-on flying, this one is a must"
PC Pilot (Classic Product award)
"The Just Flight Fokker F27 'Friendship' is a solid product which displays high quality and detail, with a balance in represented accuracy to provide exceptional overall value for money... The level of detail in the modelling is superb... Sufficient accuracy and detail to satisfy the yearning of the procedural flight simmer... Instruments are magnificently detailed and clear and easy to read... The liveries are of a high quality and the surface textures, reflections, and shadings give the aircraft a crisp and realistic appearance... The general performance of Just Flight's Fokker F27 'Friendship' was excellent in flight"
Mutley's Hangar (9.4/10, Silver Award)
"After the 747-200/300, DC-8 and TriStar, this British team are becoming hard to beat when it comes to airliners from the era before all-electronic cockpits… there's nothing revolutionary about this Fokker simulation, but that's exactly what we liked about it – dealing with ultramodern airliners means you can lose sight of what a great pleasure it is to fly in the old style!" Micro Simulateur.
"A wonderful aircraft and better after the service packs... The quality of the instrument panel, center pedestal and the overhead panel controls are excellent... Just Flight includes a wonderful tool for adjusting your eye point... The [external] textures are very nice with a nice amount of sun reflection on some surfaces. The amount of exterior details that Just Flight has included with the F27 Friendship is excellent with all features three dimensional... The external lighting effects are excellent... Excellent tutorial flight... The cockpit features and instrumentation also look great" Avsim.com
