Fastest twin piston 4- or 6-seater?

Recommended Posts

Hello, I love to fly piston twins in P3D. I have the Carenado Cessna 337, Vertx Da62 and RealAir Duke B60. Is there any other plane for P3D that can go significantly faster than the Duke? Thx, Karl

Consider branching out into small turbines - check out the FlySimWare LearJet - highly recommended

Thank you both. The C421 isn't faster, is it?

 

Julian, I have the Learjet and the Falcon 50 and I like them. But I still want to fly the pistons, especially from shorter runways in Alaska.

Doubt you'd find a piston that would out-do a Duke.

Look at the Carenado C90 series.  Just a bit shy of the Duke.  Logged about 400 hours in the original Carenado C90B before the Turbine Duke came along.

If that is the case, I'm all set.

Are we talking turbine Duke or piston duke? I think the 421 edges the piston Duke out by 5-10 knots or so.

I don't know what all the ones mentioned do - but the Carenado Aero Commander 690 Turbo B

cruises at 275 Knots and is a dream to fly.

Odd...all this time I thought the BE60 was faster.  Both the C421 and BE60 yellow arc at 201 kias, but the C421 vne is around 230...Duke 220.

Piper Aerostar may be faster though....A2A is supposed to be making one.  There is an Aerostar for XP11 by Avia71

Edit yep the Aerostar 601P is faster!  Yellow arc around 247 vne 278 or so

Sure but that's a turbine

I'm speaking of pistons which is what the OP asked about.
