A good Twin Engine Turboprop for FSX

Recommended Posts

Hi All, I am looking at getting a good Twin Engine (or single Engine) aircraft for FSX. Freeware or Payware is fine and something that has a good lot of repaints...... I dont want something too precise like the PMDG J41 but something that is realistic and again that has a good amount of repaints available, there are so many out there I suppose I want to whittle down a bit. I was looking at the Flight1 Pilatus PC12 or maybe the Real Air Beech Duke. BTW I wanted to use the GPS500 with it if possible as this is the one I am used to :) I am looking at flying into a few regional airports etc hence why I thought it would be good to try some smaller aircraft. Many thanks in advance for anyones thoughts here............

The Real Air Turbine Duke is excellent, but I don't think that there are very many repaints available. That may change as the paint kit was released fairly recently. The Carenado Grand Caravan is another single engine turbine plane you may want to consider. Why not the JS41? It is a blast to fly - especially if you combine it with FS2Crew - and there are many repaints for it.

Lionheart makes two turbo singles, the Kodiak stol bush plane and the Epic six seater exec. The Klondike is an ice cream bar laugh.png

Real Air Duke for sure and the Aerosoft Twin Otter is another good one.

I would go for the RealAir Turbine Duke, it is fantastic. A great plus over the piston version is the fact you can use fields as short as 1000ft.G

That's exactly why I got it, so I can fly in and out of those wonderful smal fields Bill Womack designs, like Plum Island. Cheers, - jahman.

Once you've got your Turbine Duke installed - consider upgrading to the RealityXP GNS530W..then you have the perfect IFR platform.
