Product information "English Electric Lightning T5"
The Electric Lightning is not an easy aircraft to fly. It’s complex and full of systems you must manage without the aid of modern electronics. Landing especially is hard as the landing speed is awfully high and there are many things you must check. Aircraft of this type are rare for flight simulators and we feel the Lightning fills a niche that needed filling.
The T5 training version is one of the very few supersonic aircraft with side by side seating. If you like your aircraft very fast and very loud this interceptor will be perfect for you!
