Fairchild F-27, Fairchild-Hiller FH-227, NAMC YS-11

Recommended Posts

Any of these regional airliners in dev for MSFS ??, F-27, FH-227, YS-11 were popular with regional airlines from the 60's thru 80's, that RR Dart sound on all three !.

The F-27 and FH-227 would be a day one purchase for me.

Hardware: i7-8700k, GTX 1070-ti, 32GB ram, NVMe/SSD drives with lots of free space.
Software: latest Windows 10 Pro, P3Dv4.5+, FSX Steam, and lots of addons (100+ mostly Orbx stuff).

Of these twin dart types, the HS748 would be the first on the list for me. 

Strange how many people talk about the YS-11 but not the HS748. 182 built versus 380 for the HS748. 


Call me Bob or Rob, I don't mind, but I prefer Rob.

I like to trick airline passengers into thinking I have my own swimming pool in my back yard by painting a large blue rectangle on my patio.

Intel 14900K in a Z790 motherboard with water cooling, RTX 4080, 32 GB 6000 CL30 DDR5 RAM, W11 and MSFS on Samsung 980 Pro NVME SSD's.  Core Isolation Off, Game Mode Off.

NAMC YS-11 would be first for me due to its global reach, but I’m not aware of any in dev. Most sim users want devs to expend resources on the latest aircraft seen in real life, not these unique old birds.

Yes, me too, MSFS should have more classic airliners, Martin 404's, Convair 340's etc., not 100 versions of A320's

I flew in those with greek Olympic Airways from Athens. those Rolls Royce dart turbo props were noisy as hell.182 built, 27 total losses (15%). Olympic had 9, 2 of those crashed.


AMD 7800X3D, Windows 11, Gigabyte X670 AORUS Elite AX Motherboard, 64GB DDR5 G.SKILL Trident Z5 NEO RGB (AMD Expo), RTX 4090,  Samsung 980 PRO M.2 NVMe SSD 2 TB PCIe 4.0, Samsung 980 PRO M.2 NVMe SSD 1 TB PCIe 4.0, 4K resolution 50" TV @60Hz, HP Reverb G2 VR headset @ 90 Hz, Honeycomb Aeronautical Bravo Throttle Quadrant, be quiet 1000W PSU, Noctua NH-U12S chromax.black air cooler.

60-130 fps. no CPU overclocking.

Clearly classic turboprop airliners aren't expected to sell very well (and/or the turboprop modelling limitations in the sim scare off devs)

I believe its Cockspur that are developing an AN-26 with the help of a Ukrainian team. Pretty much the Soviet equivalent of the F-27 and one that I'm really looking forward to.
