Having got the bird up in the air and flown from Brough to Warton, just love this a/c.
Seeing as this project is still work in progress, am I right in thinking that the a/p along with heading and altitude hold is not functional at this time?
Considering the huge amount of work that has gone into it, taking a break is understandable.

I did a shufty through the posts on Jetstream but found no answer.

It is not a work in progress. Its what you get.
From what we've been told its already "done" :(( a visual model with lots of potential, no doubt, but...enjoy it as it is.
I dont think it will be finished either.

Copy that Metalmaster. Thanks

Previous Brough taxi was the DH Dove piloted by Dickie Chandler. Will download and try that.

I have a special interest in the Jetstream 1 as I had many flights in the Brough a/c G-GLOSS.

At the time, Hawk design was being transferred to Brough from Kingston while Harrier design was being transferred from Brough to Kingston. (on Thames) Sometimes twice a week I would fly to Dunsfold (as a passenger) with Harrier drawings for Kinston and bringing back Hawk drawings for Brough. A limo (complete with driver) would set off from Kingston to pick me up and take me (plus drawings) to the Hawker D.O. I wasn't important but the drawings were.
Once on site, the drawings were logged in and I would begin the hunt for Hawk drawings. Some would be in the Drawing Store - but mostly not. These I would seek out from the draughtsmen who had booked them out. They would be embodying works queries on them, mods. etc.
My return to Dunsfold reversed the process but heavy traffic once made me miss my plane back. Fortunately the Warton Jetstream 31 was due in and I managed a lift back to Humberside Airport with one of our directors whose car was there. He gave me a lift back to Brough
