Just Flight Hawk T1/A Advanced Trainer in beta today

  • This is one fast mover. If you start in the air you are going about 800 kts so you gotta think fast, real fast. This one is designed to work with TacPack for weapons in the other sims so I don't know yet if any of those features will be available in AFS2. The underwing pylons are fixed on the model so we may be able to load bombs and missiles, but, not fire them. After all, it is a trainer. Lots of liveries will be available. First look in AFS2.

  • Remember, this is the first look at beta, It will be corrected in time. JF surely knows what it should be and Jan knows how to fix it, but, it surely does start really fast when using the air start. I notice it also flies at little too high also. That is why we have beta teams. So obviously we need to take it to maintenance for a checkup.8o

    Edited once, last by Jetjockey10 ().

  • For those of us that think pilots should be included in flight sim models, I did a search at the JF site to review the specs and promotional screenshots of the Hawk model in the other flight sims. I am pleased to report the statement

    "Animated, configurable front and rear pilots"

    is listed in the model description. I will request they appear in the AFS2 edition. Actually, the pilot looks a lot like our Higgy.

  • The screenshot from the airstart showing an INDICATED airspeed of almost 800 knots is just bonkers;-) Even IF (and it doesn't by a long shot) do a TAS of 800 knots, the Indicated airspeed at 55.000 feet should be only 340 knots or so. An indicated airspeed of 800 knots at 55.000 in the ISA would mean a TAS of 1047 kts. That is Mach 2.5 guys!!


    Either way - sure looking forward to a Hawk in AFS2- The JustFlight Hawk in X-plane is an absolute delight to take for a hoon in the Mach-loop!!!

  • This US Navy Goshawk (a Hawk made under license by Boeing for the USN) is really interesting. I have the JF Hawk for X-Plane and miss the Goshawk since it has speed brakes at the side as it is a carrier landing trainer. Together with the Hornet near Cape Canaveral this will be a real plus for Aerofly.


    Thank you, Jetjockey 10

    You are welcome, Tregarth. In a very short time our latest large scale scenery package will be ready and the Nimitz and Hornet will both be included for your takeoffs and landings pleasure. Watch for the Hawaii Revisited scenery pack.


    There are many differences between the JF Hawk and the T-45C, but, in a crunch we can overlook most of them. To the casual viewer the dual front gear, speed brakes, and tailhook are noticeable differences. Well, maybe the extra pylons on the Hawk.

    :P8) Is this good ... or bad ? :) :)

    He appears to be highly intelligent, he is in the correct seat in the aircraft, has his helmet on with the visor facing forward, so that is good, jep, all good positive points. I lean towards the good side, but, I'm sure there are those that sway with the winds and they might come down on either side. hmmm. :S8o=O

  • Being a naval aircraft the T-45 has a "navy" HUD with E-bracket and AoA indexer (as modelled in Dino Cattaneo's T-45 for FSX). Will the AeroFly GosHawk have a "navy" HUD, please? The JF Hawk for X-Plane has a HUD but it is really only a bomb sight since this Hawk is not for carrier training.


    I have checked the JF website, they are advertising the Aerofly Hawk, and asking people to register an interest, but it seems to be a port of the existing land based version.


    An AeroFly T-45 Goshawk would be really good.


    Thank you,
