Best Single Engine Turboprop

Recommended Posts

Just getting started again, and need a plane I will be able to fly on instruments (and online)....Quality of Flight model is prime to me.Single engine turboprop is what I would really like (and I will pay if no quality freeware is available in this area)....BTW: I tried the default Grand Caravan and was very disappointed in its approach characteristics. Thanks in advance, Bill.

the Flight1 Piper Meridian is the only aircraft that fits this bill. A good thing too, it is fantastic and unmatched across the board.

The freeware PC-12 takes too much time to get working correctly (if it can be made to work well!) - I gave it a couple hours, gave up, and then decided to wait for Flight1's version (no announced release date, which is as it should be). Supposedly the freeware one needs a better installer but I still have doubts about how well it would work even with that.So for now, I have to echo the nomination for the F1 Meridian - it's one of the very best GA add-ons for FS2004. Its built-in RealityXP Garmin GPS unit, combined with that unit's integration with the rest of the Meridian's flight displays, makes it a PMDG 737-like contribution but more in the GA vein. It significantly raised the bar in terms of my expectations for payware add-ons (I'm not sure whether this is a good thing!). However, it takes a high-end system to run it well (in my experience anyway). Dave Blevins

Fully agree:The Pilatus PC6 is hard to beat, especially if you have any wish for Alaska flying (Misty Fjords scenery, both freeware and Payware available).Good luck in your choice.RTH
