Short field take off

Recommended Posts

Looking for a nice short field take off and landing aircraft. Payware or freeware. One for flying in and out of, lets say St Barthelemy Gustave (TFFJ):) Thanks looking forward to some suggestions. Bob

http://www.avsim.com/pages/0408/Story/IslandHopping.htmhas some interesting flight descriptions in the area you have mentioned. The author talks about a 1300 foot strip at SABA and an over-obstacle landing at TFFJ using a DHC-6-300 Twotter with its home base at TNCM.The Twotter described is FSX payware but you'll find freeware and payware Twotters for FS9 as well.Thisd article was just posted here on AVSIM.

Man, I'm really liking the Rockwell Aero Commander AC500 here on AVSIM. I have been flying low and cool in that and nothing else lately. It can take a lickin' and keep on tickin'. And it has a good STOL to it. I use the sounds from file ba_gbr.zip for adding zing. I wish I had found it sooner. Compliments to the chef.dolph

There is the LET-410s also. They're a rugged twin turbo-prop much like a twin otter. It's a beefy, ugly looking Soviet-bloc design from, I believe, Czech.----------------------------------------------------------------John MorganReal World: KGEG, UND Aerospace Spokane Satellite, Private ASEL 141.2 hrs, 314 landings, 46 inst. apprs.Virtual: MSFS 2004, MIDCON P-401"There is a feeling about an airport that no other piece of ground can have.

I could always send you my trike...it can take off in 150-200 feet, less if you have a headwind :)Regards,John

I second... Milton Shupe's Dash 7.It's a blast to fly. I did a full stop and then a takeoff with no back taxiing at a grass stip 14N. And it has a runway info guage that gives you airport info and ILS freqs for most airports in the world.Best Regards, Donald T. :-waveFLYing? It's cool. Trillions of birds and insects can't be wrong.

The Pilatus Porter by FSD will take off or land anywhere. One of the best STOL aircraft I've found yet.

If you like Soviet planes, there's a really nice An-14 in the library here. It has an absolutely beautiful VC, and it claims to be able to land "across" a runway!
