More Carenado goodies coming up

Recommended Posts

According to their Facebookpage we'll be seeing a Beechcraft B200 Kingair and a Socata TBM 850 in the near future :Party: It's also on the Carenado site already.

Hmm I wonder what happened to the Cirrus...

 

Still a TBM 850 is exactly what I've been hoping for...

 

King air... it's funny... we go years without a good one then four pop up lol

Would be nice if King Air 200 is an older bird with an analog cockpit.

 

Flight1 is making a 200 with a full Garmin 1000 (like their Citation Mustang)

 

So it'd be nice to have a classic 200 to go along with the modern one F1 is building.

 

Hopefully we will see them both by summer/late summer/fall at the latest...

 

I know Carenado is faster building planes than F1 is, so here's to hoping!

Thanks for the HU. I'll would like both in my hangar, especially the B200.

 

Best regards,

Jim

Yup, with the King Air it's 737 syndrome all over again LOL; years without a decent one and then you have to build a new hangar to fit them all in.

 

Still, I might eventually get to retire the Aeroworx FS9 one.

Good point - the F1 offering will be excellent (if you've got time with the mustang you know hehe) but an simple PFD/EHSI verison with "steam" gauges will be fine too.

 

I'm excited mostly about the Milviz B350 - the 350 is much faster than the 200/90. Then again the TBM 850 is fast too.... oh decisions!

Yeah, I'd like a straight swap for the Aeroworx B200 as far as avionics go. Apart from maybe the Supronov Yak, the iFly NG and the PMDG 747, that Aeroworx B200 was the best FS9 bird you could get, it was light years ahead of the competition and it was about the only thing in FS9 which I thought genuinely required some skill to land. If any of the forthcoming FSX B200s get near it, I'll be a very happy camper.

Old skool...

 

Yes, please! As others have mentioned, with the Flight1 Garmin 1000 version already announced, this seems like the obvious niche to fill - but I suppose it will depend on what Carenado has access to.

By doing an older airframe it would allow other who chose to do so, to install their Reality XP units for long range nav. Or for those who enjoy doing it the way IFR was done for decades before GPS.

 

Plus the lead time would be considerably less than one with something like Flight1's G1000.

Four? I only know about the Flight1, Milviz and Carenado projects. Which other developer is working on a B200 as well?

We need more 737! Wait.. wrong thread. Seriously, thanks for the HU on the upcoming Carenado planes. Seems like the age of turbines expands some more.

 

Lets hope that the variations from the devs on the actual type are noticeable though. Reading about different gauge setups leaves room for personal preferences. A simple 'same plane, but this time from Carenado' (like it may happen on the C182 G1000) wouldn't fit well in my eyes.

I meant four king airs

1) Carenado BE9L

2) Carenado BE20

3) Flight1 G1000 BE20

4) Milviz B350 / possibly BE20

Is it gone? Would have been a nice non turbine one for me.

 

Edited. The normal Carenado page still shows it. :Peace:

It might not be gone but there hasn't been any progress(shown) since Feb. I figure they put it on the backburner as they are advertising the C182, BE20, and TBM 850 ....

Right you are. However, they are already the fastest payware GA plane backing machine on the planet. A little slow down won't hurt much. They also have the XP releases. Amazing speed either way.

 

Ok, now which dev gives us some Lancair Evo turbine? :P

I admit they do pump out planes... honestly not sure how... maybe their beta sessions are too short :Nerd:

You've got a point there I think. Lets hope they improve on that one too. I mean, I love some of the user fixed planes a lot (JetProp love, don't ask me why :Kiss: ), but, frankly, I've hated the need to fix them. I wish them luck on that part.

 

I must add that they have a small but very helpful fan club here at Avsim. The constructive work on e.g. the C90 was impressive.

ive been waiting for a 850 for awhile too. I'm just still sceptical about their G1000. I know it probably wont be like F1 but I hope its not too bad. As in what it can do.

 

I also hope they do the steam gauges for the 200, let F1 do the G1000 with blackhawk mods.

 

looking forward to see how they turn out

If Carenado does the 200 with the G1000 option only, no analog cockpit I probably won't buy it... I seriously doubt they will do the G1000 anywhere near the justice F1 will.

 

Carenado needs to do the 200 up like the 90B, then let those who want to install RXP stuff.

 

They know F1 is doing a G1000 equipped 200, so why make one too, one they will in all likelihood be nowhere near the functionality of F1's.

Ryan,

I concur with the TBM! Been wanting one for years. Additionally, a King Air 350 done well would be right up there.

Maybe the fact that F1 is doing a G1000 version will make Carenado do the steam one. I think that's their strong point and they could do a nice old style 200 cockpit ie with no avidyne just steam gauges. Whether or not they do one with Avidyne like the C90 we will have to wait and see. But if they use the avidyne out of the C90 they could at least improve the map functions etc

I think best bet would be for them to make a analog one, or partial EFIS (EHSI EADI) model, with the stock FSX GPS unit in it. Then allow for easy replacement of that unit with a Reality XP units.

I miss the Dreamfleet 727 the most after getting rid of FS9.

Doubtful. Carenado is obviously moving to glass now.
