AD Simulation Releases CRJ700 for X-Plane 11
Written by George on November 27, 2021
After years of development, multiple team breakdowns, and no lights at the end of the tunnel, AD Simulation and DeltaWing Simulations have released their rendition of the Bombardier CRJ700 series for X-Plane 11.
The addon offers accurately modelled systems based on the real aircraft, high-resolution and crip display recreations in the flight deck, and fully custom cockpit lighting recreated up to the highest details.
There is also an EFB in the flight deck, and custom FMOD sounds were prepared by the developers from AD Simulations for the user to enjoy and immerse in the virtual world of flight simulation.
The aircraft was developed in cooperation with real-world pilots and enthusiasts to make the most of the addon. However, unfortunately, it does not still offer a fully custom FMS, but rather a customized one based on the default FMS.
There are also a few interactive elements featured in the addon. These include, for example, animated stairs and cockpit shaders. Other than that, the aircraft also offers 4K textures, accurate exterior and interior models, including a 3D cabin, and a realistic wing flex.
The complete feature list can be found below.
The CRJ700 from AD Simulation and DeltaWing Simulations can be purchased through the X-Plane.org Store for a decent price of $49.95. Thus, about €44.20.
Systems are modeled based on real life CRJ-700 aircraft. 5 CRJ real life pilots and few simulator enthusiasts were helping us to develop and make them work just like in real life.Flight Control Panel knobs support fast scrolling via left mouse button press and hold and precise scrolling via mouse wheel scrollMode Control Panel SPEED and other modes simulate the real Autopilot modes on the CRJs. The screens are as close to the real ones as possible.

Displays are exceptionally crisp and with letters and symbols easily visiblePFD Primary Flight Display is modeled exactly as real life counterpartMFD Multifunction Display can display following modes HSI The horizontal situation indicator shows the compass card with overlaid selectable navaids, bearing and course pointers NAV SECTOR Navigation display with compass card and a background map. The navigation display shows course pointer and deviation bar. VOR bearing and DME distance information is shown FMS MAP Flight Management System Map shows the track and waypoints programmed in the CDU (Control Display Unit). FMS MAP shows the aircraft heading. TCAS Traffic Alert and Collision Avoidance System investigates the air traffic control transponders of nearby airplanes and identifies and displays potential and predicted collision threats. FMS PLAN MAP shows programmed waypoints of the route. Shows north at the top of the display. Waypoints can be selected by using UP and DOWN arrows on CDU (Control Display Unit) RADAR– to be implemented in future versions

There is FULL lighting implemented, FLOOD, INTEGRATED and DISPLAYS with animated knobs and switches. You can adjust the intensity of displays, panels and light in any combination you like. In addition CABIN LIGHTS and STAIR LIGHTS are also adjustable via corresponding switches in the back of the cockpit
FULL external lighting is available via animated corresponding switches
There is a Tablet and popup Menu WIP
Custom sounds are implemented using FMOD.
Engine soundsCockpit sounds: Avionics, Gyro, Relays, Fans (Packs), Controls (Buttons/switches, levers)Warning sounds: Take-offGPWS (Too Low Terrain, Too Low Gear, Too Low Flaps, Terrain Caution, Bank angle, Sink rate, Don’t-sink, Pull Up)Autopilot, Fire, AlertsCabin sounds: Galley, CoolingExterior sounds: Gear Roll/Touch, APU, GPU, Flaps, Hydraulic and Fuel Pumps, Wind drag, PacksWeather sounds: Wind, Rain, Thunder, Wind Gust (on the ground only)Cabin and Cockpit muffing effect caused by Cockpit Door closed/open
Flight model has been carefully adjusted to match the real life CRJ-700. Real life CRJ-200/700/900 pilots were involved in the process.
Realistic wing flex
Wing Flex has been modelled and adjusted for realistic aircraft behavior
FMS and it’s Pop Up is customized as far as look but based on the Default X-Plane one.Note: Default XP FMC is based on the Collins FMS-4200 and CRJ is using that one, no Honeywell and Thales types.
3D Modeling and Textures
Almost all maps are 4K High ResolutionExterior is modeled with all details existing in real aircraft.Pilots are visible in external views and turn thir heads slightly to ward camera viewInterior modeling has been made paying attention to details in the real life CRJ-700 cockpit.Cabin and Stairs have adjustable lighting
Liveries included in the package are listed below
AEGAN AIRLINES, CRJ, DELTA ENDEAVOR, LUFTHANSA 1, NORDICA2 RYANAIR
Unique Package Features
Stairs Rails can be raised and lowered (per customer request)Cockpit shaders slide and rotate as you need them
Package is VR compatible but future enhancements will be added
