NOTICE: MJC8Q400 Version 1.014 PILOT edition for FSX and Prepar3D V2.x has been released.

The following issues are addressed in this version:

1. Fixed the problem with Q400 crash on resize under Prepar3D 2.5 when mipmap panels option is off

2. Fixed the Prepar3D audio problems in the Cabin views

3. Modification to the copy protection, allowing usage of the Q400 under several simulators on the same PC

4. Fixed the non-transparent windows in the Cabin views when the cockpit dome light is activated

5. Aileron to Tiller control will disengage at 50 percent Power Levers angle, and center automatically for takeoff

The complete list of changes can be found in the patch readme document, available under Majestic Software support - User Area

Product Information:

The MJC8 Q400 addon for Microsoft Flight Simulator X is a highly realistic rendition, built after the Bombardier (tm) Dash8 Q400 aircraft.

"PILOT" is an edition, designed for home flightsimmers, who want a state-of-the-art hardcore add-on but do not require the complex features, such as the instructor panel system monitoring, circuit breakers simulation, failures simulation, or the shared cockpit.


  • Our addon is the only one available on the market, which includes a built-in Flight Dynamics Engine completely independent from the default FSX FDE. The consequence of this is a much more realistic aerodynamics behavior of the aircraft, in particular the realistic wind simulation, enhahced propeller physics including the propeller discing and auto rotation, effects of the propeller airstream on the wing lift and the icing effects on the propeller, wings and the flight surfaces.


  • The Weather Radar is capable of interpolating the weather returns, based on the actual FSX weather, using the FSX Weather Stations reports. The Weather Radar can work with both the FSX Real Weather, and the Weather Environment addons capable of setting the per-station weather. The beam geometry is also simulated in order to depict the weather based upon the aircraft altitude, antenna tilt and the altitude of the weather itself. There is a ground clutter and the weather shadow effects. In addition there is a ground mapping mode simulation, capable of showing the surrounding terrain. The weather clutter in the ground mode is also simulated.

  • TCAS

  • The Traffic Collision Avoidance System (TCAS) simulates most of the ICAO defined CASII functions, and provides the traffic indication, as well as the traffic and resolution advisories. The TCAS works with both the AI traffic, and the virtual ATC network traffic (Vatsim/IVAO..)


  • The dual Flight Management System, included in the package is built after the Universal ™ 1E FMS, and is developed with a high degree of detalization. The FMS system is capable of navigation in 3 dimensions (LNAV+VNAV), the RNP based navigation, the Fuel and Performance Management. The up to date navigation database, provided by our navigation data supplier Navigraph (subject to the additional charges, please see the for details), can be used to obtain the latest procedures. In addition, there is a custom provisions to control the availability of the ground services and the flow of the passenger announcements.


  • The documentation for each edition includes the systems tutorial, sample flight guide, Control Panel application tutorial, checklists and performance tables. The PRO and TRAINING edition also include the items pertaining to the abnormal operations (checklists and the system tutorial)


Highly detailed external and cockpit models with HD textures and special effects.

  • hundreds of animations, all of them are custom and controlled by the aircraft systems

  • world's first realistic 3D propellers simulation featuring variable disk thickness

  • smooth gradual lighting both in 2D and 3D cockpit

  • complete custom lighting system with proper light splashes on the exterior model and ground. All lights are functional in the cockpit

  • "intelligent" pilots with a sensed behavior in different situations (exterior model)

  • complete muli-stage icing visualisation

  • windows mist/demist simulation

  • little impact on framerate, much smaller than comparable models


Detailed layered paint kit in Photoshop format with a unique stitching tool

19 high resolution liveries from around the world :

In addition to the default announcements included with the aircraft, our scripting based announcement system allowes for building the custom announcements both per-livery or global. The announcement script can play the user defined sound files based upon the current condition of the aircraft systems and control states, thus allowing for a very customized and realistic announcement flows, specific to the particular airlines.

  • FMS FPL WINDS (from v1.1)

  • The FMS FPL winds functionality which is currently in development, and will be provided in the version 1.1 update, will allow the FMS to account for the enroute winds, thus increasing the fuel and time prediction accuracy.


  • When saving or loading the flight in the Flight Simulator, the systems will also store or retrieve their respective states


  • Our product includes its own Sound System, independant of the Microsoft Flight Simulator sound system. The sound system is Direct X based, and is using the custom DSP (Digital Signal Processing) effects to simulate the propeller sounds correctly. In addition, the system is 3D enabled for both the external and internal sounds, including the switches and controls sounds, as well as the voice announcements.


  • The Addon Control Panel Application (CPAN) allowes the user to visually modify the most important parameters of the aircraft, as well as verify and apply the custom Weight and Balance configurations.

System requirements:
  • INTERNET CONNECTION for validation

  • Flight Simulator X - Prepar3D v1 - Prepar3D v2

  • Windows XP, Vista, Windows 7 and 8

  • FSX Service Pack 2 or Acceleration is required.

  • FSX STEAM compatible
