//42 PrecipitFX

for FSX & Prepar3D

PrecipitFX will bring your simulation experience to new heights with completely revamped contrails, rain and snow textures as well as overhauled effects wheels spray and engine wash effects.


PrecipitFX contrails are the most advanced contrails for Flight Simulator X and Prepar3D ever seen! They will add up a great touch of realism to any of your jet-powered aircraft!

Wingtip vortices

Our wingtip vortices are the best addition to your flight simulator! What is great with our product is that we added to the wingtip vortices a three dimensional aspect. Plus, they look great! We believe we made the best-looking vortices in the Flight Sim community!

Wheels Effects

The wheels effects under rain and snow conditions will definitely render any ground movements way more interesting! The rain and snow displaced by the wheels will never have looked that good before!

Jet wash

The engine jet wash effects under rain and snow conditions is a "must-have" for any Flight Simmers! With PrecipitFX and its jet wash textures, you will be able to feel the power behind every airplane, small, medium, or large!

Brake smoke

Brake smoke is a great feature that enhances the realism of any rejected take offs, emergency landings or hard braking landings! The effect work with aircrafts that are not using the anti-lock braking system since the effect is triggered by the friction of the tire with the pavement!


Brand new touchdown effect for all your aircraft. Depending on the size of the aircraft, different touchdown effect will be generated. Giving a unique feel to each landing.
