Majestic Software's COCKPIT Edition for Prepar3D RELEASED!!
The time is finally here! The Majestic Software Cockpit Edition has been distributed to our vendors and should be available within the next 24 – 48 hours.
The COCKPIT edition is developed primarily for the cockpit builder looking for in-depth simulation solutions and the feasibility of configuring/integrating complex hardware setups.
The COCKPIT edition includes the functionality and features of the MJC8Q400 PRO edition, plus the following:
FLIGHT CONTROLS DISCONNECT SIMULATION
The flight controls can be disconnected and the respective independent flight controls system will account for the pilot flying position (based upon the pilot head position in the Virtual Cockpit, or the type of the main panel in the 2D cockpit). The disconnect option is designed to operate correctly in both virtual or hardware-based cockpits
FMS RAIM SIMULATION
FMS provides RAIM prediction and simulates the changing GPS accuracy accordingly
CUSTOM FLIGHT DATA RECORDER
The Flight Data Recorder (2D panel) can be used to record and visually reproduce a flight, allowing for classroom demonstration or analysis of the particular phases of the operation during your SIM session.
SINGLE CUE FLIGHT DIRECTOR
Single Cue or Dual Cue flight director modes can now be selected via the CPAN.
SURFACE SLOPES SUPPORT
The aircraft will now correctly interact with sloped surfaces allowing for the correct visuals and physics, which have been integrated into the Q400 FDE.
TRUE GLASS PRECIPITATION LIBRARY INTEGRATION (optional)
The TFDi Design TrueGlass (optional during the product installation) provides precipitation visuals on cockpit windows
COCKPIT SPECIFIC FUNCTIONALITY
+ MULTIMONITOR 2D PANELS
A set of 2D panels, sliced in sections in order to facilitate building a multi-screen flight training device. A screenshot of the panels layout can be found in the product screenshots section
UNDOCKED - NON FULL SCREEN MODE
DOCKED - FULL SCREEN MODE
TOUCH SCREEN SUPPORT
An alternative set of 2D panels are provided, which when used with touch-enabled monitors allow for a more realistic user interface, such as using the capability to use one’s finger to turn knobs or tune frequencies. This touch logic of the panels allows for eliminating mouse manipulation of the flight controls.
SEPARATE EFIS SCREENS
A "windows" executable application allowing to show all vector screens, such as EFIS, FMS, ARCDU, CAUTION LIGHTS PANEL or STANDBY INSTRUMENT on a separately networked PCs.
EXTENDED JOYSTICK COCKPIT HARDWARE INTERFACE
The Extended joystick cockpit hardware interface allows for linking every cockpit control to a joystick compatible hardware.
The RPC Cockpit Hardware Interface allows to access the data of the Q400 from within a flight simulator module or a custom-made gauge. Examples of the integration are provided.
NETWORK HARDWARE INTERFACE
Is a UDP-based network interface, which allows the network-enabled cockpit hardware to access all of the Q400 add-on cockpit data.
HARDWARE INTERCOM SUPPORT
An array of audio matrix (inputs->outputs) coefficient variables, facilitating the building of a hardware audio intercom
SYSTEM CONTROL APPLICATION OF ALL SYSTEMS
The SYSPAN application allows for the failure of all simulated systems within the aircraft.

While we anticipate that this long-awaited upcoming release of the COCKPIT Edition will suit/meet the requirements of many (mostly amateur/non-professional cockpit builders) there is still a vast majority of folks that are awaiting the TRAINING Edition which will be the next tier of the MJC Q400 add-on to be released pending a visual update to the virtual cockpit, which will be followed by an update to the visual extension package.
As always, we thank everyone for your continued patience and support.
