Is CaptainSim 727 Available Yet?

Fri Dec 06, 2002 8:14 am

The captainsim website says the plane hasn't been released yet. But I keep seeing all of these repaints for it on flightsim.com, so I'm wondering if there is a downloadable version available or something? Thanks for any help.

Hmm, I just noticed on their website that they have a 'technical release' available, its just the 727-100 but with only 4 liveries and no virtual cockpit. Interesting.

It was released but withdrawn again because of the mass of problems people found with it.
The bad way in which CaptainSim handled this has led to them loosing a lot of credibility with people.

So the only people who have it now have a beta version and are mostly people who preordered it and are now stuck with it.

I bought the CaptainSim 727 a few days ago.. and have the 'tech release'. it's pretty good.

It was never released as a package. It was due for release on NOV 19th but in the end the product was not ready. So as a gesture, they released a technical version which gave an idea of what the end product will be like. From what I have seen (and flown) this will be one top notch aircraft and I would strongly suggest people consider purchasing it when the finished article is released.It will be complete in the very near future.
