Fokker F28 Fellowship

Compatibility: Microsoft Flight Simulator
Just Flight are excited to bring you four variants of the F28 Fellowship regional jet – the 1000 to 4000. Announced in 1962, the F28-1000 first flew in 1967 and entered airline service in 1969. The stretched 2000, 3000 and 4000 variants followed in the 1970s, and production ended in 1987. The aircraft proved to be popular and entered airline service around the world, with the last commercial operation ending in 2018.

The F28 for Microsoft Flight Simulator features a native model and 4096 x 4096 PBR materials for the highest possible texture detail and clarity. Realistic animations include dynamic wing-flex, all passenger, service and cargo doors, and the distinctive spoilers and tail-mounted airbrake.

Moving to the cockpit, the Captain, Co-Pilot and jump-seat positions are modelled with nearly all switches, knobs and levers animated and functional. The aircraft will feature custom-coded autopilot, hydraulic, electrical, engine bleed, fuel and pressurisation systems. Wear and tear based on extensive reference photos and custom sounds will produce an authentic cockpit environment, with highly realistic flight dynamics completing the immersive experience.

Model

  • Four variants of the F28 Fellowship:
    • F28 Mk 1000
    • F28 Mk 2000
    • F28 Mk 3000
    • F28 Mk 4000
  • Accurately modelled using real-world aircraft plans and comprehensive photography of the real aircraft
  • Realistic animations including all passenger, service and cargo doors, control surfaces and mechanisms, distinctive spoilers and tail-mounted airbrake
  • 4096x4096 textures are used to produce the highest possible texture clarity
  • PBR (Physically Based Rendering) materials with real-time environment reflections for superb quality and realism
  • Detailed normal mapping for down-to-the-rivet precision of aircraft surfaces
  • Full support for MSFS visual icing effects and ground services support
  • Authentic labelling and placards based on those found in the real aircraft
  • Realistic wing-flex
  • Custom ground equipment (GPU, cones and chocks)
  • Optional engine hush kits
 
 Cockpit

  • Captain, Co-Pilot and jump-seat positions modelled with nearly all switches, knobs and levers animated and functional
  • A truly 3D cockpit environment right down to accurately modelled seat belts and screw heads - every instrument is constructed fully in 3D with smooth animations
  • Authentic gauges and navigational equipment, including RMI (VOR/ADF) and HSI
  • Realistic autopilot system including pitch and IAS hold modes, and navigation hold mode that can be linked to the MSFS flight plan
  • Cockpit textures feature wear and tear based on reference photos taken in the real aircraft to produce an authentic environment
  • Aircraft configuration system that will allow you to choose between 'cold & dark' or 'ready for take-off'
  • Many features have been added to help with usability such as the ability to hide the control yokes for a better view of the instruments and pre-set angled views for the overhead and centre pedestal
  • Tablet EFB for controlling various aircraft states and options, and checking aircraft and flight information
  • Developed using the latest MSFS standards, including intuitive and easy-to-use controls for rotary knobs, multi-position switches and levers
  • Fully compatible with MSFS VR mode
  • Realistic dimmable lighting
  • Full support for MSFS checklists (manual and automatic/co-pilot modes)
  • Custom-coded hydraulic, electrical, engine bleed, fuel and pressurisation systems
 
Liveries

The F28 Fellowship will be supplied with a range of liveries from around the world, reflecting its wide and varied airline service.
 
 
Other:

  • Realistic flight dynamics for each variant based on real world performance and handling data, and input from real-world F28 crew
  • MSFS-native (Wwise) sound package taking full advantage of the new capabilities, with authentic audio for every switch, button, lever and electrical systems
  • Multiple interior and exterior viewpoints, including wing views
  • Comprehensive manual with panel guide and performance data
  • PSD Paint Kit included so you can create your own paint schemes

Development Updates

27 July 2021

Here are some new shots showing the cockpit night lighting work. And now the cockpit systems coding gets underway...
 

 

 


21 July 2021

Here are some new screenshots showing additional liveries on the F-28-2000 and F-28-4000 variants.

The majority of the exterior texture work is now complete and work moves to internal visuals and coding of the extensive systems. So there's still some way to go in terms of the development process on this one but hopefully these latest shots will give a good indication of the level of quality you'll be looking at for this one. More development updates to follow.


       
 


29 June 2021

Development work is now well underway on the F28 Fokker Fellowship and we're glad to be able to showcase this first set of screenshots for you. These are WIP of course but nice to see this new regional jet inside the sim.

More shots and dev entries will follow soon.
