Pilatus PC6 Porter and Cessna 337 Skymaster

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

In my days on FSX I had the Pilatus PC6 Porter and Cessna 337 Skymaster by http://www.fsd-international.com and found them "different" and interesting to fly.

Anybody knows if FSD has plans to port them on P3D?

I'm also wondering if Steve Small is still part of FSD and doing the FDE?

Hi Tony,

i haven’t heard anything from FSD - Aerosoft has a work in progress PC-6 that looks absolutely superb - sadly - it’s been that way for years and the going seems slow... Haven’t checked in lately though...

Regards,

Scott

Iirc the old Porter freeware by Piglet works fine in P3dv4.  Originally made for fsx.

That's the XPlane version.

I've been looking forward to Marcel's porter. AS is vague on the status of the project. Let's keep hope alive.

I have the Carenado C337 and after applying HawkDSL turbo mods (they are in the Library, and according to Hank, blessed by Carenado) it is a real nice mountain flyer. The extra power comes in handy on those short strips.

Thanks for your feedback John.

So you are happy with the Carenado C337?

The Carenado C337 is very nice. It's a shame it doesn't include the variant used as a FAC aeroplane, but it's close enough that some people have done repaints to make it a lookalike. In any case, it is definitely one worth checking out.

I read about the Carenado C337 and I am on the verge to take her.

As I understand the aircraft is fully compatible P3Dv4.3?

I don't use GPS. Is there an option to remove (or not to display) the GPS on the panel?

FSD Pilatus and O2A, mist coming to my eyes 😀. They were the jewels of our hobby in FS2004. But FSD has been dead for a long time now, early in the FSX era I’d say. As far as I remember the team splits, not even sure that all are still alive. A site still sells their products though but I would be wary. And I suspect that any indication there of P3D compatibility refers to P3D v1.

I bought Carenado 337 because  FSD O2A was a favorite of mine. Was disappointed. The aircraft is externally nice, the cockpit lighting not so great on my screen, and the flight modeling, how to say it, is bland.
