1900D

Recommended Posts

I am about to go to school to fly the 1900D. Is there any chance the sim will work on FSX?

 

Thank you,

Yes, a new B1900C and D would be great!

I agree. I love that plane so much! Please PMDG! Hopefully one with FMC rather than GPS haha :)

The early ones didn't even have gps I don't think. I guess at the time (early 80's) they didnt think about putting gps in, it was very new technology and maybe wasnt even out yet when the first 1900's rolled of the line.Then they came with gps. No fms though.

From what I can tell, the 1900's did not come from the factory with GPS or FMC. Many 1900's still flying today have been upgraded with a KLN-90 GPS, a few have Garmin 400 series and a precious few have a Garmin 500 series GPS.

Actually the first 1900D came off the line in 92. The 1900d did come with a gps I'm pretty sure. ( don't quote

me on this but I think it was the KLN90 gps) the 1900C's didn't have them at first- probably up until the early 90's.

 

You still see a lot today without any gps.

Ahh the good 'ol KLN090B's. I remember first seeing the little moving map funtion in that beauty and was amazed. I thought it was the coolest thing.

 

It's a fantastic unit really, and a great bargain and fully featured unit for first time panel-mount buyers.

In real life or on the sim? ;)

 

I don't have PMDG's 1900, but I think the closest you could get to adding a -90B to the unit is either with Project Tupolev's KLN-90, or Flight1's Islander's, or the basic one included with Aerosoft's Twin Otter.

 

You'd have to play with some panel.cfgs and gauge files but it may be possible.

I'm pretty sure that any GPS on the 1900D was a customer option as many airlines chose not to get it. Most airlines (in the US at least) just opted to fly /A using VORs and DME because the routes were pretty short.

Super nav 5! I have many hours (about 200+) behind a KLN90B in a CItation II cockpit. I knew that box inside and out.

PMDG are unlikely to remake the 1900. The new Caronado Beech 1900D might be a better bet for immediate use in FSX. It includes a simulated Universal FMC.
