We are pleased to introduce our Lear35 Immersion Package! With our most detailed Immersion Package to date, we believe that we are bringing to the Flysimware’s Learjet 35 an extra layer of realism that our customers look forward to when they fly. The Lear35 is a workhorse of the business jets community, yet, quite a delicate aircraft at the same time.

Why choosing the Learjet 35?

The Flysimware Learjet 35 is one of the most underrated aircraft in the flight simulator community. It is also one of the most complex business aviation jet available to flight simmers. For that reason, we decided to take a peek into the product and create an amazing immersion package that will suit the jet and reach your highest expectations in terms of quality.


Performance at first

Performance is always our top priority. We are well-aware that our customers are looking for utmost realism and seek not to jeopardize performance along the way. As such, Lear35 Immersion has been tested thoroughly and the memory usage of our product is next to nothing. With regards to the frames-per-second (FPS), we have optimized Lear35 Immersion in order to provide a high quality FPS-friendly product.


Jet wash

The Lear35 is an old yet very powerful little corporate jet. The engines jet wash effects were therefore quite important to truly give the feel of the engines’ thrust! By adding 8 levels of engines jet wash effects on water and snow, we succeeded at provoking a sense of awe for the power these two little engines can harness! Hence, we have an effect which is more visually appealing and definitely stunning to look at! Furthermore, we also implemented 4 levels of engines reversers jet wash effects.


Contrails

Lear35 Immersion Package comes with an incredible set of contrails which behave exactly how you would expect them to do! Same size, same behaviour: That’s our promise on every effects we engineer for you, contrails included! Furthermore, they are less resource-hungry than the default ones to make your flights at FL450 a smoother experience! We have pushed the boundaries of what’s possible a little further by introducing up to five levels of contrails’ depiction. That’s what we could call elevating standards to service ceiling!


Volumetric Rain

There is nothing more exciting than to take off or land into rain! Hence, we pulled our energy and know-how to bring into the Lear35 volumetric rain for landing lights and recognition lights. Given the particularities of the Flysimware’s Lear35 and the way the landing lights are positioned, we were able to make the effect visible from the cabin and the flight deck! Resized, reshaped, refined. The effect now suits the shape and curves of the Lear35 to near perfection!


Volumetric Lights

The volumetric lighting technology looks absolutely amazing with the Learjet 35! The Lear’s four landing lights truly give a sense of immersion on CATI, II, or III approaches. Yes, the volumetric lights are visible from the cabin as well as from the flight deck. They will definitely change the way you fly the Lear!


Wheels Water and Snow Effects

The Lear35 is not only able to cross the pond, it is also able to cross ponds on taxiways and runways, no puns intended… For that reason, we decided to go ahead and develop 9 different intensities of wheels spray on water and snow effects. That’s 9 effects to make your taxi rides more enjoyable than ever!


+ Party Lights

We decided to implement some 1980s technology! As a Lear35 pilot, it’ll be Throwback Thursday all day everyday! We call it the “retro mood lighting”, the ancestor to the modern mood lighting! So just pump up the jam, pump it up and get the party started!


+ many other effects

Touchdown effect, engine start-up smoke under cold conditions, jet exhaust gas are also included in the package!


Works for you

Lear35 Immersion is compatible with all popular texture enhancement add-ons and weather engines available for Microsoft Flight Simulator X and Lockheed Martin Prepar3D.

We also made changes to the way we generate our effects. They are now compatible out of the box with FSX's DirectX 10 Preview mode without conversion needed.


New install process

Our new home-made control panel, VFXCentral, now renders the installation process much easier and enjoyable. It also allows to customize your installation of Lear35 Immersion along the way. Furthermore, updates will be provided through the control panel and will include all your FSFX Packages under one roof.

Ready for capture

Our goal with this product is to extract the beauty of the weather interacting with the aircraft and bring those effects to flight simmers. While doing so, we optimized every effects to make the job easier for virtual photographs and video producers. Visual effects can be displayed in a slow motion environment without spreading apart like they usually do with default effects, making it ideal for today's Flight Sim recording techniques.

Limitations

Please read the following limitations and known bugs before buying the product.

  • Effects will not show if all engines are shutdown.

    The technique used to display effects around the aircraft depends on the airplane’s smoke system which does not work when all engines are off. This is a Simulator limitation.

  • Effects are not visible during instant replay.

    Flight Simulator X and Prepar3D’s replay system is very limited and does not allow the replay of advanced effects systems. A great solution in Flight Simulator X is to use FSRecorder with the smoke replay option turned off.
