This is the first beta patch for Ultimate Airliners: The Super 80 Professional.
This beta patch upgrades the Super 80 Pro to version 1.0.1.

Flight One Software, in partnership with CoolSky, are now previewing their soon to be released Ultimate Airliners: The Super 80 Professional product which is a highly advanced aircraft and panel package which simulates a later version of the McDonnell Douglas MD-80. This version includes a more modern glass cockpit, with a full Flight Management System.
