I now strongly advice users to stay away from this model, I have had freeware models that is better than this and to beware in the future to buy any Iris product. Page 1 of 1. When you pull the Gust Lock Lever, a clipboard appears. Please note, I am not associated with product designer, and do not offer technical support for their products. If you want maximum realism, then start with a cold and dark cockpit. However after a few flights I managed to do it without much problems.
It appears that when final performance tweaks were being made, one of the designers inadvertently had their sim realism setting set to minimum and therefore made alterations to the aircraft based on these realism settings. Fully customisable visual model with options for inflight refuelling, advanced sensors and Head Up Displays. At the time of writing this review, a patch to fix some of the identified issues was being produced by Iris but I have been unable to test the updates. Because of its current role in military service as a tactical transport, little is known about the true capabilities of this aircraft. Once installed, virtual pilots will find eight different aircraft liveries in their hangar, including some fictitious repaints such as the Royal Australian Air Force and Australian Maritime Safety Authority. Stall recovery needs the nose to be lowered and power applied. With only one patch and a hot-fix released, the developers seemed to give up on the model.
The sound is not special, in fact nothing particular stands out from this aircraft. The glass cockpit features platinmu where all the info is available. Not the best cockpit I have fxs, but it gets the job done. However, I have taken off in a 30 knot headwind with full load and at the aircraft simply lifted in the air.
The developer responded extremely quickly to my inquiries, although I am in the same time zone. The co-pilot will inform you of your speed, at Knots he will inform to rotate, no matter what the conditions. The Alenia Serries Spartan is a medium-sized military transport aircraft.
Alternatively, an autostart function is included, and accessible from a hidden kneeboard. I have seen this aircraft do aerobaticsso it tells me there are a lot of power available. It seems I was bit hasty in reporting on this aircraft.
The cockpit’s displays are not crisp, sometimes you struggle to read the settings. I have not noticed any frame drops with this aircraft.

However, these do appear a bit fuzzy, not a crisp as other glass cockpits.
You nwill have to go through the manual to see where everything is, some buttons is located at strange places. Checked and altered Moment of Inertia values for correct inertia performance in roll, pitch and yaw.

I struggled a bit here, the throttle seems to be overly sensitive. If you don’t have to worry about the price, are looking for nice medium lift transport aircraft, don’t worry about not having to spent a hour to program the aircraft before start-up, then this will do very nicely.
This aircraft is only available for FSX. One of the other features of this aircraft is that the engines will catch fire if operated at high temps for too long. Their latest offering is the Alenia CJ Spartan. Added a new auto-start procedure. The biggest problem with this model is its flight characteristics. A HUD is present, remember to pull it down. Sun Sep 18, 5: Mon Sep 19, 7: Checked and fixed prop feathering systems for correct operation. A comparison of real-world performance data where available and Iris aircraft data is included below.
I was able to roll the Iris CJ through a full degrees, time and time again.
– Review: CJ Spartan By Iris Flight Simulation Software
The aircraft is suppose to be aimed at the more serious simmer, but come across as an in between. It takes time to learn the cockpit though, there are no cockpit help in terms of telling you what the switch is for.
Reduced APU spartxn volume. Checked full systems for correct operation as intended. Instead, users must then access the payload menu and manually increase the weight themselves. While the price is still a bit high for what you get, it is plainum a nice aircraft vsx. Once on the ground, the reverse thrust combined with brakes will stop the aircraft very quickly, so be ready to feather the ;latinum.
Removed Vertical Speed Hold option as the unit was not working as intended. Taxi is smooth, in fact almost too smooth, it feels like the aircraft is floating. It is a capable sim and hopefully with a few patches will be a great aircraft. Previous topic Next topic. The reference material that I was able to source did verify that most of the weights and performance characteristics of the Iris product were comparable, although there was a considerable difference in the simulated empty weight and that of the real aircraft.
I was able to sustain inverted flight as well, although I expect this is an c-2j7 ability. I did experience a couple of landings where the engines seemed to provide asymmetric reverse thrust, but I could find no reason for this and it appears to have been a freak occurrence.
The CJ is well worth the look. Past experience with Iris products though, suggests that the patch will correct the identified issues and result in improved performance and behaviour of the aircraft without issue.

The official response is that they have moved on to sartan projects and will no longer support the CJ. Please note, I am not associated with product designer, and do not offer technical support for their products. While in flight and having to look around the cockpit for the switches can be a problem. For those who enjoy flying larger aircraft, particularly those who enjoy tactical ieis, the Iris CJ is a great product.
The SAAF Forum • View topic – FSX IRIS PLATINUM SERIES – CJ SPARTAN (my thoughts)
In my 26 hours spent in this aircraft I encountered several errors, the engines will suddenly loose power for no apparent reason, the nav display will freeze, stuff like that. You can’t program your flight plan, it will automatically load from the FSX plan. A number spartann small tweaks made the aircraft just more realistic.
After purchase the file is available for download, about Mb. The graphics could have been better, in fact the Lionheart Quest Kodiak have better looking cockpit and was less than half the price. The designers say that this is most common at high throttle settings and low altitudes.
