The X-15A-2 (serial number AF56-6671), was a modified version of the X-15 rocket plane, specifically designed to allow longer engine burn times and to attain hypersonic velocities in the range of 8000 feet per second at an altitude of 100,000 feet. The main modifications were the addition of a 29-inch fuselage section to the center of gravity compartment and two large aluminum external propellant tanks which can be jettisoned and re-used. The added propellant permits alonger engine run which results in added velocity.

After the X-15-2 aircraft was damaged in 1962, it was rebuilt as the "advanced" X-15A-2 and was delivered to Edwards Air Force Base in February 1964.
 

In October 1967, Air Force Pilot Pete Knight took the X-15A-2 to Mach 6.7 (4520 mph), the fastest manned aircraft flight recorded to date (if we exclude the Space Shuttle). The X-15A-2 completed 22 flights between June 1964 and October 1967.

X-15-2 for Flight Simulator Key Features

  • Custom X-15 flight model to simulate rocket-powered high-speed and high-altitude flight in FS2004 and FSX:
    • Supersonic flight up to Mach 4.65 in FS2004 and FSX
    • High-altitude flight up to 354,200 feet in FSX (100,000 feet in FS2004)
    • Can be launched either from a high altitude like the real X-15 or take off from an airport runway like other Flight Simulator aircraft
    • Good maneuvrability at supersonic speeds and excellent gliding capabilities
  • Highly detailed 3D models with more than 300 parts, 60 animations, reflective textures and unique markings, based on archive material
  • Fully functional instrument panels with 180 custom gauges and systems to simulate almost every step and procedure required in a typical X-15A-2 mission
  • Spectacular visual effects including rocket engine flames, APU exhaust and propellant jettison effects
  • Uses a custom fuel management system with three different types of propellants (ammonia, liquid oxygen and hydrogen peroxide) and pressurized helium, like in the real-world X-15A-2 rocket plane
  • Custom external tanks propellant transfer system
  • Includes a comprehensive 100-page user manual inspired from the original X-15 and X-15A-2 utility flight manuals, in a printable PDF format (English and French language versions are included with the software)

X-15-2 Add-on Aircraft Description

This package contains three versions of the X-15A-2 aircraft (serial number AF56-6671) with the XLR-99 rocket engine and "jettisonable" external propellant tanks.

The additional fuselage section provides an optical window and additional space for experimental and instrumentation equipment (in the "rollout" and "dirty" versions). Other changes common to all aircraft include a removable right wing tip, an extended landing gear, a revised canopy with new elliptical windows, a sky hatch on top of the instrument compartment, extended side fairings to carry more hydrogen peroxide stored in spherical supply tanks and a helium spherical tank behind the dorsal stabilizer.

Like the real aircraft, the white version of the X-15A-2 for Flight Simulator is covered with a special pink ablator sealed with a white wear layer to protect the airplane from the tremendous amount of heat generated during high-speed flight. This variation also features a jettisonable dummy ramjet under the lower modified ventral and an animated eyelid over the left canopy window

 


"Rollout" version (black) with silver external propellant tanks and the X-15A-2 light blue-gray instrument panel;


"Dirty" version (black) with red and white external propellant tanks and the X-15A-2 light blue-gray instrument panel;


"White" version with full ablative coating, a modified lower vertical stabilizer, a dummy ramjet, an animated eyelid on the left canopy window and the X-15A-2 light blue-gray instrument panel.

X-15A-2 Advanced Instrument Panels (for the XLR-99 rocket engine)

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 or X-15A-2 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;
  • External propellant tanks release (X-15A-2);
  • Propellant jettison.

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

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

The X-15A-2 for Flight Simulator comes with one (light blue-gray) main instrument panel and eight secondary panels. Included with each X-15A-2 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;
  • A center pedestal panel;
  • An external drop tanks control panel.

In addition, the default Flight Simulator Garmin GPS and magnetic compass panels are available from the main panel.


X-15A-2 (XLR-99 engine) instrument panels. Note the service panel at the top, the radio panel and the drop tanks control panel (above the airspeed indicator).


X-15A-2 (XLR-99 engine) during flight. Notethe SAS control panel in the lower center section of the panel and the external tanks fuel flow indicator lights under the angle-of-attack indicator.

X-15-1 Utility Flight Manual

 

 

 

 

 

Included with the software are the 100-page English and French versions of the X-15A-2 Utility Flight Manual, available in a printable PDF format (Adobe® Acrobat® Reader 5.0 or later required).

The manual has been specifically conceived for the X-15A-2 for Flight Simulator and is based on the original real-world X-15 and X-15A-2 utility flight manuals.

The flight manual contains the necessary information for the installation and operation of the X-15A-2 virtual aircraft and associated instrument panels. It contains instructions and procedures for XLR-99 rocket engine operation, on the X-15A-2 for Flight Simulator.

The end-user is encouraged to print a copy of the manual for his/her own use, in conjunction with the add-on simulation software. The best way to keep the manual handy for easy reference during flight is to organize it in a durable presentation binder.
