Thanks for the headsup and the neat screenshots, John. It's one of the most beautiful aircraft ever built.

It does look fantastic. I believe it belongs to the rare breed of top notch freeware addon aircraft. However it's rather unfortunate it can only be the second best Kingair offering for FS. iFly 747 has the same issue. They would otherwise have a much larger group of users. Nevertheless, it's free. So for one who likes kingairs but not enough to spend $30, the deal doesn't get better than this.Jason

It sure looks good, however were the Aeroworx looks good and replicated her systems very well, how does this great freeware offering compare to her payware sister? Or is it only eyecandy/dummy switches?Rob "Holland&Holland" de Vries http://fool.exler.ru/sm/fly2.gif"To go up, pull the stick back. To go down, pull the stick back harder"

Fantastic as the B300 is to look at, the Aeroworx B200 is a far deeper turboprop simulation. Not surprising mind you, one could not reasonably expect any group to dig that deep for free.One thing for the 300, the engine soundset is really good, and there are sound changes with prop pitch, which I think the B200 sound set does not have. Currently I'm combining the best elements of both. edit - Top marks also for the B300 night vc lighting - very nicely done :)regards,Mark

The folks at AFG are also working on finishing up the Caravelle. If there B300 is any indication, I'm sure it will be a nice piece of work.

What would the realistically shortest airstrip that a real life pilot would put one of these into - I know a lot depends on pressure altitude.Barry

Really great plane, big thanks to the authors.I could see this plane turning me into a "VC junkie" though, sigh.

Both the King Air B-300 and the TBM have their props go into feather on shut down. This is the way it is supposed to be because of the loss of engine oil pressure.Is there a cfg entry somewhere to do this because I want my other PT-6s to do the same thing.thanks

Although I downloaded this plane and took a look at her in the sim, I haven't been able to fly it since I haven't set up my sim since my move.One possible problem I noticed is that in the trottle quadrant window I was unable to get the fuel cut-off levers to move with the mouse. The trottle and prop levers respond without a problem.Is this unique to me or have others noticed this? Maybe I need to make an assignment in FSUIPC or in FS9?Jim

Works fine for me - using a MS Sidewinder Joystick.But that is in the VC - apparently it is meant to be flown from the VC and some 2D gauges dont work. Perhaps that is what you have found in the "throtle quadrant window" Barry
