Following on from their popular Hawk T1/A Advanced Trainer and PA-28 family of aircraft for MSFS, Just Flight's in-house team has developed this highly detailed simulation of the 146 regional jet following comprehensive, hands-on research with a real-world aircraft, G-JEAO, which retired from service with British European Airways in 2000 and is now preserved at the de Havilland Aircraft Museum, and the CC.Mk2 and C.Mk3 aircraft of Royal Air Force, 32 (The Royal) Squadron.
Just Flight are excited to bring you the 146 ‘Whisper Jet’ – featuring the 100, 200 and 300 series of this classic British airliner. The design process of what was to become the 146-100 began under Hawker Siddeley in 1973, when the iconic high T-tail, short undercarriage, four engines and distinctive airbrake were chosen to produce a regional airliner with short-field performance and quiet operation. The 146-100 first flew in 1981, followed by the stretched 200 series in 1982 and the 300 series in 1988.
The Royal Air Force purchased three 146-100s in 1986 and these were operated by The Queen's Flight, designated the CC.Mk2 ‘Statesman’ and equipped with VIP cabins. The aircraft were used to transport the British royal family and senior members of the UK military and government.
The 146 was also popular with cargo operators due to its excellent capacity and low engine noise, allowing for night flights into city airports. Two cargo variants were developed: the convertible passenger and freight variant (QC) and the freight-only Quiet Trader (QT). The Royal Air Force also operated two 200QC aircraft, designated the C.Mk3.
Eight variants of the 146 are included in this product – the 100 to 300 passenger variants, the 200QC and QT, 300 QT, RAF CC.Mk2 ‘Statesman’ and C.Mk3 – offering a wide variety of configurations, ranges and flight operations across the globe.

The exterior models are stunningly detailed, featuring 8K and 4K textures for incredible clarity and the latest Physical Based Rendering (PBR) material technology to produce realistic metallic, plastic and glass surfaces. Realistic animations include trailing-edge flap mechanisms, spoilers, large tail-mounted airbrake and all passenger and cargo doors.
The Captain and First Officer positions in the cockpit are modelled with hundreds of functional switches, knobs and controls. The aircraft features complex custom-coded systems based on real-world FCOMs, including hydraulic, electrical, fuel and pressurisation, and the cockpit is also fitted with a functional Thrust Management System (TMS) and comprehensive navigation equipment which includes traditional navigation equipment for tracking VORs, NDBs and ILSs, as well as two types of FMS for RNAV navigation.
The aircraft are brought to life with immersive dynamic lighting and 3D Wwise sounds, with unique flight dynamics for each variant and custom effects from condensation and contrails to realistic exterior lighting.
The 146 was flown all around the world and over 40 airline liveries from the UK, USA, Europe and Australia are included, bringing you many iconic airlines and paint schemes.

See the Detailed Description below for full details of all the aircraft features and you can also take a look at the PDF manuals: 146 Professional Operations Manual, UNS-1 FMS Manual, EFB manual.
New features - the 146 Professional has received many significant updates/upgrades since the original release, with a plethora of changes being made to the aircraft systems and visuals, as well as extra features and quality-of-life additions based on community feedback. This all ensures that the 146 Professional is one of the most complete products available for MSFS! The free 'Version 2' update (4 April 2024) adds even more features, including fully interactable passenger cabins, a UNS-1 Flight Management System and boarding simulation.

of v0.1.8 | current version is v0.2.2
The JustFlight BAE 146 is a lovely little jet that I can't recommend highly enough.

Some pros and cons
A really nice flight model, no idea if it's accurate but it feels really nice to handfly
Good systems depth (with a couple exceptions that'll be noted below)
Good sounds
A basic but functional EFB with Simbrief and Navigraph integration
Steam gauges and high pilot workload all the way

Currently uses the default FMC (an update should be coming that'll add the correct FMC sometime in the near future)
It cruises at .70 so don't expect to get anywhere fast
Since the simbrief update I've occasionally had issues getting the EFB to load simbrief OFPs
Steam gauges and high pilot workload all the way

It's not for children of the purple line, but if you want a jet from the 80s that feels like it was made in the 60s, this is for you.

I love it, yup it is complex and i like it very much, first plane where u need all effort when simming and it is feel at u simming guides are very very good, i this is second day , when i study this aircraft, wonderfull plane full 5 star , it's earned :)
