Twin Otter is the obvious answer.The latest freeware version is supposed to be good and from experience I know the Lago one is excellent.

The AFG NAMC YS-11 is also outstanding with a beautiful panel and flight model. It's not a high wing, but it's well worth a look.

He specifically wanted a high wing...Last I looked both the YS-11 and B1900 were low wing aircraft.

:-lol lol my bad... :-shy I didn't read it carefully hahaha, but ya, the Twin Otter is a great little bird, so is the Mu-2, I think the USD Mu-2 is still available at the major sites? I'm not too sure, I'll have to check into it.Best Regards Derek Beal :-wavePROUD RUSSIAN/CANADIAN! :D

I have to agree - the YS-11 is an outstading freeware addon. The Virtual cockpit is fantastic, and the Rolls Royce Dart sounds are beautiful :)If you're willing to spend a modest amount of money the FSD Cheyenne is another excellent turboprop. Granted it's a low wing design, but it's a great package overall (visual model, 2D panel, VC, flight dynamics, sounds). It'll get you wherever you want to go, and it will get you there *fast*.

Dont forget the freeware enhancements for the Beech Baron and King Air by FSD-International. It turned both planes into very good addons that fly the best and are extremly easy on Frame rates.Dennis

Owen,Thanks for the correction. I didn't catch that little faux pas until after I'd had my coffee. I simply wasn't thinking about the C115 single...Rick

Yes, the twin otters are a fantastic plane assuming you don't mind fixed gear config. Barry Blaisdell of Premier Aircraft Design has made a number of them. His propnl2 (Pro Panel) is outstanding IMO. A great package all for the great price of $0.00!Pick a few up - you won't regret it!Adam

Have a look at Milton Schupe's freeware Aero Commander series (two released so far, in VC and non-VC versions.) The flight dynamics are superb, there's recently been an add-on sound package created for the series, and whilst its technically a piston prop rather than a turboprop (I think !) it flies and sounds great.Alastair

Bumping this message in hopes the MAAM thread will move into the archives or onto the Hangar Chat forum where it belongs! Better yet, let the parties involved sort it out themselves IN PRIVATE. Now there's an idea!
