Ultimate Airliners: The Super 80 Professional is a highly advanced aircraft and panel package for MS Flight Simulator X and Flight Simulator X: Steam Edition which simulates the McDonnell Douglas MD-80 aircraft.
The highly successful MD-80 series of aircraft produced by McDonnell Douglas started life in the early 1980s. Continuously through its production run which lasted until 1999, McDonnell Douglas upgraded the aircraft; more thrust, more fuel, better avionics.
Ultimate Airliners: The Super 80 Professional simulates the latest cockpit upgrade given to the MD-80 series, the Electronic Flight Deck (EFD); full EFIS with FMS, TCAS, Systems Display Panel, Engine Display Panel, and many more advanced systems.
The Super 80 Professional is designed to be an accurate and realistic simulation of the real aircraft. All systems in the aircraft are simulated with a very high level of accuracy to make the experience complete. Real MD-80 pilots will feel right at home.
The Super 80 Professional features the ground breaking Integrated Cockpit Training System (ICTS). The ICTS is an interactive, in-flight training system designed to teach you how to operate the aircraft while in the cockpit.
The process of learning to fly a new aircraft in MSFS has been totally reinvented with the ICTS. Whether you are a first time or seasoned simmer, jump straight into the cockpit and start flying now!
The Training Center is the starting point for all interactive training. You will find training guides for the checklists, various procedures/operations, EFIS, FMS, and other complex cockpit systems.
There are also 330+ pages in the Aircraft Operating Manual accompanying this product to help you fully understand all the aircraft systems.
The ICTS will guide you step-by-step through all the checklist and procedures you need to be familiar with as the pilot in command of this aircraft. You will learn how to operate the aircraft while in the cockpit, hands on, in-flight!
The Training Guide will tell you step-by-step exactly what to do to accomplish the items in a checklist, how to execute a specific procedure, or how to operate a complex system.
The Training Guide will also automatically open the appropriate panel windows and point out the relevant switches, knobs, gauges or system for you with bright yellow arrows and boxes.
The Training Guide allows you to learn in your own tempo. Click next when you are ready for the next item/operation, or step back to review previous items/operations.
The Super 80 Professional also features the Automatic Aircraft Configuration (AAC). The AAC system will automatically setup the aircraft and all systems, for the selected phase of flight, at the click of a button.
This feature is useful for both beginners, as well as the experienced simmer. Beginners may use the AAC feature for instant flight and fun! Simply hit “Cleared for Take-off” and off you go!
Experienced simmers may use the AAC feature in part of their training. For example, to practice shooting ILS approaches, position the aircraft, hit “Cleared to Land” and go nail that approach!
The Super 80 Professional comes with 8 high quality liveries sampling a variety of current MD-80 operators.
In addition to that, 16 high quality liveries by McPhat Studios featuring various operators from around the world are included in the release package. McPhat Studios specializes in creating weathered and worn looking aircraft with extremely high attention to detail.
