This package contains 2 versions of the X-15-1 with the interim XLR-11 rocket engines and two versions of the aircraft with the million-horsepower XLR-99 rocket engine.

The North American X-15-1 (serial number AF56-6670) was the first of three experimental X-15 aircraft built in the late 1950s to demonstrate the ability of pilots to fly rocket-powered airplanes out of the earth's atmosphere and back to precision landing. The X-15 was a single-place research airplane, designed to obtain data on flight at extremely high altitudes and speeds and on the effects of such flight conditions on the aircraft and on the pilot. The X-15-1 was rolled out in October 1958, and successfully completed its first powered flight in January 1960, after a series of captive and glide flights. The No. 1 aircraft completed 81 missions during the entire (9-year) X-15 research program. The legendary test pilot Scott Crossfield was the first to fly the X-15-1 in the spring of 1959 while NASA pilot Bill Dana flew the aircraft for the last time in October 1968.

NEW! Ten camera definitions or views (FSX only), some of them corresponding to the real-world X-15 external bug-eye cameras

NEW! New X-15 custom sound sets for FSX and FS2004

NEW! New “invisible” canopy mode to fly the X-15 without her clamshell-type canopy on for more visibility and a spectacular view from the VC

NEW! Twelve saved flights based on X-15 historical missions to simulate a high-altitude launch from a carrier aircraft or a takeoff from the ground
Spectacular visual special effects including rocket engine flames, APU exhaust and propellant jettison effects

A custom fuel management system with three different types of propellants (water-alcohol or ammonia, liquid oxygen and hydrogen peroxide) and pressurized helium or nitrogen, like in the real-world X-15 rocket plane

NEW! A comprehensive 100-page user manual and a 20-page VC manual inspired from the original X-15 utility flight manuals, in a printable PDF format (English and French language versions are included with the software) X-15-1 Add-on Aircraft Description

This package contains two versions of the X-15-1 aircraft (serial number AF56-6670) equipped with the XLR-11 rocket engines (limited-mission configuration) and two versions of the X-15-1 aircraft equipped with the XLR-99 rocket engine (design-mission configuration).

The X-15-1, equipped with the interim XLR-11 engines, completed 21 flights between June 1959 and February 1961, before it was converted to the XLR-99 engine configuration. The aircraft completed 60 flights in its design-mission configuration between August 1961 and October 1968.

Removable wing-tip pods that contained cameras and various research instruments were attached to the aircraft in the fall of 1964. The pods and other parts of the airplane were covered with temperature-sensitive paints of different colors. The second variation of the aircraft also features a tail-cone box with additional experimentation equipment and a reconnaissance camera window under the front compartment.

 


"Clean" rollout version with the NACA vane-type boom nose and the original (XLR-11) black panel.


"Dirty" version with the NACA vane-type boom nose and the original (XLR-11) black panel.


“Dirty” version with the NACA/Nortronics ball nose and the original (XLR-99) black panel.


Dirty" version with the NACA/Nortronics ball nose, wing-tip pods, tail-cone box and the (XLR-99) light blue-gray panel.

Fully Functional 3D Virtual Cockpits

NEW! Each of the four X-15-1 aircraft comes with its own 3D fully functional virtual cockpit which contains over 900 parts and nearly 200 animated gauges, switches, levers, light indicators and flight instruments.

The VC allows a total 3D immersion into the X-15 flying environment and comes with new internal spotlights, switches, control sticks, handles and levers with tooltips. Virtually all switches in the VC are clickable and can be used to simulate nearly every procedure required during a mission.

As with the 2D instrument panels and the exterior models, each virtual cockpit has been meticulously created to conform as closely as possible to the cabin of the real X-15 rocket aircraft.

NEW! Automatic Ignition Sequence – The X-15 can now be started automatically at the touch of a single "magic" red button. This is similar to pressing CTRL+E with conventional FS aircraft. However, the red button initiates all X-15 internal custom systems, including her three-propellant rocket fuel management system.

X-15-1 Advanced Instrument Panels

What makes the X-15 for Flight Simulator series exciting and unique are the advanced fully functional instrument panels with custom gauges and systems to simulate almost every step and procedure required in a typical X-15 mission:

  • Aircraft servicing (all three propellants and gases);
  • APUs/generators/hydraulic pump operation;
  • Propellant tank pressurization;
  • Engine precool and prime;
  • Turbopump operation;
  • Rocket ignition sequence;
  • Monitoring of propellant pressure gauges;
  • Propellant jettison.

Almost every X-15 internal system has been integrated into the X-15 for Flight Simulator panels:

  • Engine propellant and control system;
  • Engine ignition system;
  • APUs and electrical power distribution systems;
  • Hydraulic systems;
  • Temperature control systems.

The X-15-1 for Flight Simulator comes with three main instrument panels and eight secondary panels, either in their original black version or the later light blue-gray version. Included with each X-15-1 add-on aircraft is:

  • A main panel;
  • A service panel;
  • A "vent, pressurize, jettison" lever panel;
  • A throttle and speed brake lever panel;
  • A left side panel;
  • A right side panel;
  • A radio panel (ADF panel on some aircraft);
  • A center pedestal panel with research instrumentation and stability augmentation system panels;
  • An RAS (reaction augmentation system) panel on some aircraft;

In addition, the default Flight Simulator Garmin GPS and magnetic compass panels are available from the main panel. 240 custom gauges have been developed for the X-15-1 for Flight Simulator and each one has been carefully designed based on the original instrument found in the real X-15 aircraft. Note that one variation of the X-15-1 has a revised light blue-gray instrument panel that replaced the original black panel in the summer of 1963. The new panel contrasted better with the gauges, light indicators and flight instruments.
