  Version 3.0 Preannouncement:

OUR ULTIMATE 20 SERIES AIRCRAFT SIMULATOR

Welcome to version 3.0 of our GLJ Model 25 Special Edition addon, our most advanced, study-level business jet simulator for Lockheed Martin® Prepar3D® and Microsoft® Flight Simulator X.

This release contains so many new features and improvements that we believe you will be thrilled by your new addon as much as we are!

Worth mentioning are four (4) new virtual cockpit configurations with retrofitted instrument panels, full 3D integration* of the GNS 530 and GTN 650/750 from Reality XP and Flight1, full 3D integration of the Rex/Milviz WX Advantage weather radar from Rex Simulations, customizable gauges to display and control third-party GPS, radars and transponders, 13 new liveries in addition to the ones from version 2.1 (23 liveries in total), interior and exterior dynamic lights compatible with the latest versions of Prepar3D®, new interior/exterior textures, a fully-functional GPU (Prepar3D®), new pilots, an updated flight manual and a new online help system, among others.

Read what's new in version 3.0

Nicknamed "fighters in civilian clothing" because of their sleek design and amazing performance, the classic Learjet 20 Series aircraft were the first true executive jets and 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.

Compared to flying other business jets, the Lear 25 gives you a thrill similar to racing a performance sports car and leaving all other competitors way behind. It is fast, slim, sexy, comfortable and capable of maneuvers you would never attempt with another civilian aircraft. According to some real-world pilots, its performance as a general aviation business jet is simply unequaled, even by today’s standards!

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 gaming 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 60 sound effects, dynamic light effects, custom aircraft systems and full-3D VR-ready virtual cockpits that make this addon an ideal candidate for new virtual reality devices and applications such as FlyInside®.

Nothing was spared in our efforts to reproduce the different instrument panels, carefully modeling and animating each mechanical device with all the necessary moving parts. Except for the LCD screens and the new radio's VFD displays, no flat 2D gauges are used in this model. Everything you see on your computer screen is in full 3D!

The result is a unique addon that strives to bring you not only the actual feeling of flying a high performance aircraft now equipped with modern avionics but also the spirit of maneuvering such a vehicle at a time when LCD screens and powerful computers didn't exist and pilots needed to know how to fly and navigate with minimal resources and rely on their own experience, abilities and judgment.

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, nearly all systems, instruments, switches and knobs are fully functional in order to simulate complete procedures, from cold and dark to shutdown.

At Xtreme Prototypes, we truly consider our addons as mini aircraft simulators. Our products take months if not years to develop and test by a dedicated and passionate team of artists, technicians and pilots. We pay attention to every detail and we do our best to make sure that we provide our users with the best flight simulation experience they can get within the limitations of the current simulation platforms. Instead of releasing many models with limited features and quality, we concentrate on only a few that we improve from version to version, motivated by the encouragement we receive from our faithful community of serious flight simmers.

Becoming one of our users makes you an important member of our development team. Version 3.0 of our GLJ Model 25 SE addon is the product of the many ideas, comments and suggestions we received from dozens of serious computer pilots like you from around the world since version 1.0 of our 20 Series business jet addon was released back in 2009. When you speak, we listen!

We wish to express our gratitude to all our users, followers, reviewers, test pilots, ex-Learjet employees, partners and friends for their contribution to the making and the success of this extreme aircraft simulator.

Thank you for your sustained interest and continuous support!

ABOUT VERSION 2.1:

"The most advanced, detailed and faithful classic Learjet simulation you can find!"
-Alan Velazquez, Gates Learjet 25D pilot

"Flying the Xtreme Prototypes GLJ Model 25 SE is exhilarating! The list of updates and refinements are so extensive, it really has been built from new with a large list of features that combines high levels of visual and performance realism. This product is highly recommended and definitely one for your hangar."
-Peter Stark, PC Pilot Magazine

"Xtreme Prototypes perfectly rendered the characteristic atmosphere on board this amazing performance luxury aircraft. Passing the AI airliners along our path is easy and above all, we fly higher: we've conducted a few transcontinental flights at 41,000 ft. without the risk of crossing any other aicraft at this altitude." -Emmanuel Blanchard, Micro Simulateur Magazine

"If you are looking for an up-to-date modern design, high definition, and highly detailed Classic Learjet, you can’t do any better than this one. The closer you zoom in to the panel, the more you appreciate just how well these new 3D gauges are performing – super sharp images for my old eyes! Overall, this is one of the most detailed and complete addons that I have in my virtual hangar."
-Ray Marshall, Avsim.com

"Love the sounds, the VC clickability/systems/operation. Enjoyed the flight model, the handling, the graphics inside and out. This is the bizjet to own guys!" -Ryan Butterworth, Avsim.com

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 Prepar3D® version may not be available in the FSX versions. Due to some limitations in the FSX simulation platform, the FSX versions contain less animations and features than the Prepar3D® version. However, systems and procedures are the same on all platforms and this has no impact on the simulation.
