My one request is they model engine temperature accurately it is not that difficult a wonderful user Autogyro has done it for some Carenado airplanes on his own time.

My request is that they properly model the fuel system. Carenado did it with the Cessna C340, but not with the Piper PA31 Navajo.

I emailed Carenado asking for them to produce a Cheyenne 400LS.

The Cheyenne 400 is the undisputed speed champ of civilian turboprops not to mention the coolest looking too!

I agree, why can't a developer just model an aircraft like it actually was when in service.This fascination with installing the latest and greatest push here dummy avionics is never ending, how about focusing on making it accurate to the era for a change. I will pass on this one.

Oh, no!  I feared that Alabeo, in order to differentiate themselves from the Carenado Navajo, would do something like this.  I, too, was hoping for a more traditional panel.

Yes, and so useless and unlike the real avionics that the only thing they are useful for is the FPS hit.

 

Shame. May have to just get the Navajo instead. It looks reasonable and seems to have good feedback. Too bad, I really wanted the Chieftain......

I have the Navajo, avionics and instruments are exactly what you would find in a good number of Navajos still flying.  I really wanted more seats and wing lockers for charter ops as the Carenado Navajo has only 4 seats in the back and no lockers.  The only knocks I can really give the Navajo is the fuel system.  It drains the auxiliary tanks first, regardless of what tanks the fuel selectors are set to and the fuel quantity gauges show the total fuel in the wings, not individual tanks.

Like the Carenado Beech 1900D, with an Avitrash and two Garmin GNS530's?  An avionics system that you might see in a B1900 ordered for or upgraded for use as an executive transport aircraft, but certainly not as a short haul regional airliner.
