FSX SHRS Freeware F111 Aircraft Features
          • 7 Custom 2D and VC Cockpits. All cockpits include pilot VFR and IFR panels, Weapon System Operator VFR and IFR panels, and 3 Virtual Cockpit views. Custom artwork for all panels. 2D and VC cockpits use the same graphics for an incredible match between panels. 2X resolution for the VC panels.
          • 10 Aircraft include: F-111B (Prototype & Pre-Production), F-111C, F-111E, F-111F, F-111G, FB-111A, FB-111A (pre AMPS), FB-111A-CF, TFX-111A (NASA, AFTI & TACT test aircraft), YFB-111A. With 10 aircraft versions, 7 cockpits and 3 payload configurations we give you 22 aircraft variations and 26 real aircraft textures.
          • Aircraft Details Each aircraft has a description for that tail number in the details
          • New camera Views Two views added for the Virtual Cockpit and four views added for the external aircraft.
          • Dump and Burn is not just an effect. Using the switch on the panel will also dump fuel. The original Dump and Burn effect has been replaced with a much better effect.
          • 3D landing and Taxi light effect included
          • Terrain Following Radar Display is a high resolution display, with Off, Stby, Situational, and E Scope modes. Display Screen and Cursor contrast adjustments with memory. 2D and VC panel display contrast are adjusted independently for best results for each panel day or night. Calibrated for accurate terrain display.
          • Terrain Following Radar has a unique pitch and roll stabilized Look Ahead ability that truly sees the terrain at a variable distance ahead of the aircraft, determined by aircraft speed that allows the aircraft to fly “hands off” maintaining an Above Ground Level Altitude between 200 and 1000 feet as set by pilot. Working Soft, Medium, and Hard Ride settings and TF Radar tilt angles
          • Primary Flight Instruments include Custom ADI, HSI, and BDHI, plus all primary, standby flight, and Engine instruments are now fully functional and calibrated. Other custom gauges include: Wing Sweep/ Slat Flap position, Control Surface position with spoilers, and all of the other gauges are fixed and/or graphically updated for better functionality and accuracy. Over 140 functional gauges and switches.
          • Threat Warning Display shows AI aircraft with a 20 or 40 mile display range.
          • Inertial Navigation Display Unit shows current longitude and latitude, next waypoint longitude and latitude, current altitude, set altitude, ground track, true heading, ground speed, airspeed, miles to destination, wind direction and speed, time to destination, and next waypoint number. There is a thumbwheel to select waypoints and a Select button to activate selected waypoint.
          • Radar Altimeter displays altitude above ground level to 5000 feet with a knob to set decision height for low altitude warning light.
          • Fuel Quantity and Auto Fuel Feed gauge feeds the fuel from the tanks to the engines in the correct order. Left and right drop tanks, then left and right wing tanks, and then forward and aft tanks. Forward and Aft Fuel quantity and Fuel Select gauges. Fuel Select gauge displays aircraft total fuel quantity and wing and drop tank quantities. The Fuel Select Knob rotates to display wing and drop tank quantities on the fuel select gauge. Auto transfer maintains 8200lb fuel difference between forward and aft tanks to maintain center of gravity.
          • Take OFF Trim button sets elevon control surfaces to 3.8 degrees trailing edge up for take-off. Indicator light shows when TOT is set.
          • Attenuator Panel Warning Lights trigger Master Caution Warning light with push to reset feature.
          • Elevons Droop trailing edge down when engines are shut down. Elevon control surface limits are realistic.
          • Power Panel controls the left and right generators, battery, avionics Pitot Heat, and engine De-icing. Generator switches also double as engine start switches.
          • Realistic Autopilot modes include Pitch and Roll Stability Augmentation (holds pitch angle and bank angle when engaged). Pitch and Roll autopilot channels can be turned On and Off independently. Autopilot sub modes include Altitude hold (holds altitude when engaged or flies to set altitude when referenced) , Mach hold (adjusts pitch to maintain mach speed), Auto TF (maintains set altitude above ground level between 200ft and 1000ft), Constant Tract (maintains ground heading), ILS, Heading, GPS, and Nav modes. Control stick input overrides autopilot without disengaging autopilot settings and reference key returns autopilot control. Yaw damper default is ON.
          • Pitch Steer Switch sends either altitude or terrain following data to the pitch steer bar on the ADI and HUD.
          • Realistic Control surface limits of +25 and -15 degrees for the elevator and +/- 8 degrees for the aileron movements. 30 degrees rudder movement.
          • Air File and Config file edited to give realistic aircraft and engine performance.
          • HUD is GUI based instead of bitmapped giving it a better image. HUD displays Pitch and Roll Steer bars, over/under Airspeed set point scale and above/below Glide Slope, Alt Hold or TF Command set point scale, 10 minutes to destination scale, LCOSS panel On/Off switch plus separate brightness controls for the Command Bars and Reticle.
          • Maximum Safe Mach assembly calculates safe speed for aircraft configuration wing sweep, flap/slat, and landing gear position, speed, altitude, etc and displays the safe speed on Mach Indicator with an Over Speed warning light and Sound.
          • Auto Vertical Speed adjust VS according the difference between altitude and set altitude giving you maximum VS and then slowing the VS rate as you get closer to the set altitude smoothing the climb rate.
          • Anti-Skid and Auto-brake features added. Anti-skid keeps the main wheels from locking up on ground roll. Auto-brake has 2 modes, rejected take-off mode and landing mode and they function like the real aircraft modes. Tapping the brakes releases Auto-Brake.
          • Icing is now possible for engine inlet.
          • External Power with parking brake set and emergency power switch on.
          • Integrated Cockpit Sounds for Overspeed and Master Caution.
          • TACAN radio added
          • Virtual Cockpit Lighting has Red and/or White lighting with brightness controls for each light effect.
          • Flare Effect added with Burst and Multiple Burst modes
          • Wing Vortices follow wing sweep with a real dynamic model
          • Mach Vapor Effect for breaking the sound barrier.
          • Start Menu added with short cuts to all documentation
          • Configurator to set up aircraft for SP2 or Acceleration, Aircraft model, engine model, and more
          • Cold and Dark Cockpit and instrument failures are realistic. Off flags and instruments freeze during failures or power off
          • Fuel, Weight and Ballast is automatically set for aircraft load out, ie fuel drop tanks, bomb load, or clean configuration.
          • Kneeboard Checklist and Reference added
          • FSX Acceleration Aircraft Carrier Ready
          • Better time frame versions of FB-111A cockpits

           In Development

           We are working to upgrade systems to function and/or look more like the real aircraft systems. Here is a list of features that will be coming soon.

          • Air refueling from spawned AI tanker
