Take Command!: Saab 340A[SF340 1.5.1]

X-Aviation is proud to announce our second product that lets you Take Command!

Real world pilots test and assist in the development of these products, and real world procedures are followed. It tells you our products are unlike any other product you've seen outside of the ever growing X-Aviation catalog! Want to feel like a real captain? Take Command!

Quick Facts: Extremely detailed 3D cockpit and cabin, 3D sound engine, accurately programmed systems and displays, 32 liveries to choose from, and X-Plane 11 compatible.

Developer: Leading Edge Simulations
Download Size: Up to 1.4 GB depending on selections.
Requirements: X-Plane 11 Only. Mac and Windows. No Linux.

The Take Command!: Saab 340A is a deeply immersive product! It has that special "WOW" factor when you first load it up and see the visuals, all the way to the moment you move those condition levers forward and hear those engines and propellers move through various ranges.

The Saab 340A is entirely simulated based on the real world manuals. All of the systems are entirely custom programmed, including the autopilot, CRT displays (EHSI and EADI), powerplant, hydraulics and more! Our entire simulation has been certified as true-to-life by a test group of five real world Saab 340 pilots. They were amazed at our accurate simulation, and you will be too!
