PMDG BAe Jetstream 41

Recommended Posts

For a change, lately, I have been thinking of getting to a couple of my turboprop simulations. Of course, MJC8 Q400 probably ranks at the very top at this time (coincidentally, I just got to see Ryan's wonderful post on the Q400). But, long before I came to know of MJC8 Q400, I have had very fond memories of the PMDG JS41 as being the pioneer and the trend-setter that set the standards of authentic simulation for a turboprop aircraft. After a nearly 4-years break from my last flight with it, today, I got to re-install and fly this aircraft. The process was a bit challenging and time-taking (with "forgotten" peculiarities of many kinds - this is a touchy aircraft for sure). Nonetheless, with some help from the internet/forum peers, here is a complete test-flight starting cold and dark at Liverpool (EGGP) to prop-shutdown at EGFF (Cardiff). I've opted to fly the Manx Airlines livery in memory of this Isle of Man based UK operator that existed between 1982 and 2002. Manx Airlines eventually got absorbed by the British Airways (and lost its identity). During its existence, it deployed an impressive range of propliners (Vickers, Fokker, Embraer, BAe, BN, DHC, Saab, Shorts, ATR etc.). Thanks for viewing these images of this interesting (past) aircraft simulation by one of the leading developers (even though it may seem somewhat dated by today's metrics). [PMDG/ORBX/REX]

Love them!  That was a classic release... a bit tough on fps if I recall.  PMDG is doing a version for P3D v4.  It looked close and then I've not seen any news about it...
