My most advanced aircraft yet. And with a VR cockpit, this is purpose built for SimplePlanes and SimplePlanes VR.

I put a LOT of effort into this.

Designed to compete with the Airbus A320neo family, Boeing 737 MAX family, Comac C919, and Ikrut MC-21 family.

About

This aircraft began as a detailed blueprint in my sketchbook in Tauranga. Then I started building it on a flight from Wellington to Brisbane. So, after two months of work, the prototype vehicle is complete, and I'm already making the production model. It is powered by 2x Roberts Engineering LXE-150 prototype high bypass turbofans. Usual controls, instructions included (I strongly recommend reading the control section, but for flying, do it how you want, or follow the other instruction section). It also has countermeasures, so you can go to Snowstone without worrying about the Surface-to-Air missiles. The production model with come out in 2024.

A lot of this aircraft wouldn't be possible without their aircraft, which were big influences for this.
