Majestic Software MJC8 Q400 addon for Microsoft Flight
MJC8 Q400 is a Flight Simulator addon, built after the Bombardier ™
Dash-8 Q400 turboprop aircraft. It has started as a software framework
for the FNPT level flight simulator and later separated into an
independent project, which provides essentially the full cockpit
simulator features under the FSX framework.
In addition, to the advanced simulation of the aircraft systems,
this product also contains an independent Flight Dynamics Engine (FDE),
capable of running at a much higher rate than the default FSX FDE, and
free of the inherent problems pertaining to the default aircraft flight
dynamics. Our Flight Dynamics is capable of providing the realistic
wind simulation, icing effects, enhanced propeller physics including
the propeller discing and auto rotation, effects of the propeller
airstream on the wing lift and the icing effects on the propeller,
wings and the flight surfaces.
The product is packaged into 3 editions, differentiating in the price
and the included features. For more information on the precise
differences between the editions, please visit our Product page. The
