  OUR ULTIMATE CLASSIC 20 SERIES ADDON

Welcome to version 2.1 of our GLJ Model 25 Special Edition addon for Lockheed Martin® Prepar3D® and Microsoft® Flight Simulator X!

This release contains many new features and improvements over the previous version, including a fully redesigned fuel system, an enhanced autopilot, a revised flight model, new sounds from the real aircraft, an updated 218-page manual and a new aircraft repaint representing one of the last Model 25D ever produced and still in service today.

What's new in version 2.1?

Nicknamed "fighters in civilian clothing" because of their sleek design and amazing performance, the classic Learjet 20 Series aircraft redefined business aviation during the 1960’s and 70’s, flying high above the weather at transonic speeds. Their capabilities earned them a place among the extreme aircraft, setting record after record. With the longer-range Gates Learjet Model 25D, from which this addon is inspired, came a longer cabin, increased seating capacity, more flexible loading options, greater fuel capacity and a rather sleek-looking stretched fuselage.

The Xtreme Prototypes GLJ Model 25 SE is a next generation addon optimized for the latest versions of our favorite simulation platforms and designed to take advantage of the new and more powerful personal computers and video cards that are available today. It is a complex aircraft simulator that features high resolution models and textures, hundreds of animations, over 50 sound effects, custom aircraft systems, and a fully analog, VR-ready virtual cockpit.

Nothing was spared in our efforts to reproduce the original instrument panels, carefully modelling and animating each mechanical device with all the necessary moving parts. Except for the GPS screen, no flat 2D gauges are used in this model. Everything you see is in full 3D!

The result is a unique addon that strives to bring you the spirit and the actual feeling of flying such a high performance aircraft at a time when LCD screens, GPS and powerful computers didn't exist and pilots needed to know how to fly and navigate with minimal resources and to rely on their own experience, abilities and judgment. This is how real-world Learjet 25 pilots are still flying this amazing aircraft today!

For the general aviation desktop pilot, being able to hop between small regional airports while passing airliners along the way is quite a thrill, but for the serious IFR enthusiast, we are confident this package will provide years of flying pleasure. Even if there are some differences between this addon and the real aircraft, mainly due to the current limitations in the available simulation platforms, nearly all systems, instruments, switches and knobs are fully functional in order to simulate complete procedures, from cold and dark to shutdown. We believe you will be thrilled by this new version as much as we are.

MINIMUM SYSTEM REQUIREMENTS

IMPORTANT: Xtreme Prototypes next generation addons are designed to take advantage of the new and more powerful personal computer systems that are available today. They require better video cards and more processing power and RAM than other more conventional addons. Increased performance will be noticed on more powerful systems.

Before purchasing this product, make sure you have the minimum system requirements or better:

  • Flight Simulation Platform: Lockheed Martin® Prepar3D® v4.x (see note below), v3.x, v2.x or v1.x, Microsoft® Flight Simulator X: Steam® Edition or Flight Simulator X SP2 with Acceleration Expansion Pack (or FSX Gold fully installed). This product is not compatible with earlier versions of Microsoft® Flight Simulator.
  • Operating System: Windows® 10/8.1/8/7 32-bit (64-bit recommended), depending on your simulator's requirements*. We are sorry we cannot provide support for this addon if installed under Windows® VistaTM or Windows® XP®.
  • Computer Memory (RAM): 16 GB or better recommended*
  • Processor: Quad Core 3.0 GHz or better recommended*
  • Hard Drive Space: Downloaded ZIP file size approx. 1.5 GB, each addon version size approx. 3 GB when installed*
  • Video Card: A high-end video card with at least 2 GB GDDR5 or better is highly recommended*. Installing this addon in Prepar3D® requires a DirectX® 11-compatible video card*. Make sure you have the latest video driver for your operating system.
  • Graphics: DirectX® 11, 10 or 9 (depending on your simulator's requirements)*
  • Other: Wheel mouse, controller (joystick or yoke), pedals (optional), sound card and speakers, Adobe® Acrobat Reader®, Adobe® Photoshop® CS5 or later (optional, required for using the paintkit). A wheel mouse is required to actuate 3-position switches and some knobs.

    *: Refer to your simulator's documentation for more information.

    Note for Prepar3D® v4 users: The GLJ Model 25 SE addon will require a patch to be fully compatible with the new Prepar3D® v4. The transition from 32-bit to 64-bit requires an update to the third-party sound DLL we are using to reproduce the custom cockpit sounds. Besides the sound issue, everything else seems to work well so far, but our tests are not completed yet. We anticipate having the patch ready in the coming weeks. Please visit our website frequently.


    TARGET AUDIENCE AND SUGGESTED SKILLS

  • Target Audience: Beginner or advanced general aviation desktop pilots, IFR enthusiasts, Learjet fans, students.

  • Suggested Skills: Following detailed procedures, understanding aircraft systems, experience with jet aicraft in the simulator, navigation basics, a desire to discover, learn and have fun.

    The operation of the GLJ Model 25 SE addon is very similar to the operation of the real aircraft. It is suggested that users read the flight manual and follow the procedures carefully.

    Note: Software features are subject to change without notice. Some functionalities may differ from those in the real aircraft due to limitations in the simulation platforms. Some features available in the native Prepar3D® versions may not be available in the FSX version. Until further notice, the FSX version contains less animations than the native Prepar3D® versions. However, systems and procedures are the same on all platforms. Due to the high number of animations in the virtual cockpit and until further notice, the native Prepar3D® versions require the OPTIMIZED_PARTS=0 entry in the "Prepar3D.cfg" configuration file.
