If not the Navajo?

Recommended Posts

Guest spenik

I was wondering anyone knows if there any prodjects concerning mid to light twins as a replacement for the Navjo? I just read the thread on the Navajo and trted it my self. It looks rather help less. But if their is a twin in the works that could replace it that would be good to hear! If it's a suprise, I will understand.

Why not a little Embraer 121 Xingu, as a tribute to our Brazilian friends?Certainly a fine looking exotic bird, and no more dutch roll with the rear keel...Your opinion, Mr Keyton? ;-)

As a replacement for the Kodiak, I think a Beech Duke or Piper Mojave would do perfectly. As a twin that I would love to fly just as a twin, I would have to yell Beech Duchess or Cessna Sky Master as loud as I can. I love small planes. I had almost resighned myself to flying just the Flyhawk and it's repaints, then I found out about the Lancair Columbia 300. Other then that, the other small planes are the Piper Warior ( Thanks ROTW for this execlent plane! ) and the Pa-19 ( another thank you to ROTW ). There are the Citabria and Decathalon but they are PC only. No PC hear. An Embraer would be nice! But it's just a tad big for me. Areo Commander what? The 520 is so cuite! But the 680 looks more powerfull. I wouldn't tell to many people you have done conversions from Fly!2k to Fly!II or all those people posting to the Kodiak problums page will beg of you to convert the Navajo 88!For those of you who don't know what a Cessna Skymaster is, it's the most invative consept since the HSI! Cessna thought that if the could make a twin with one engine in the front pulling and another directly behind it, they could cancelthe Ben Hur effect and P-factor problems. For those of you who don't know what that is, Oh boy... Cessna presented the Skymaser to the FAA and tried to get it classifed so that a single engine pilot could fly a twin without a twin ticket, but that didn't fly. The consept is still there but only 1250 or so were built but they are very neat!CaptinJ, if you could let me know what kinds of planes peple would like, I would love to hear it! I tried a post once but nobody replied.Love that Whirllybird! When will it be done?

Xingu? What is that? Sounds interesting! I can just see Next generation pusher-prop with the engines on the wing tips and a tail wheel!

It looks and "feels" like if you put your bag at the back the plane's tail will end up touching the runway.:-lol

Embraer is a Brazilian aircraft manufacturer and is very good one. Xingu is a Brazilian project from 70's, like other famous and recent as EMB120 (Brasilia), ERJ 145, etc. We Brazilians like to see Brazilian aircrafts in the sims..Take a look here..http://www.embraer.com.br/RegardsJJLobo

My personal fantasy is the Beech Baron 58P. Can we see that for Fly!II at some point. ;)A few bush planes would be nice to see as well (I know there's the Piper Cub, but I'm originally from Alaska and we consider that a kite with an engine). Something like the Noordyun Norseman, a Beaver or Otter maybe. Float versions would be nice, I'd like to fly something besides the Stearman on floats for once.John S.

Hi Jarno, Many thanks for all the hard work you've been doing! Were it my choice, I'd like the Duchess - but the Embraer everyone's talking about would really be a great plane to add in as well, so I'll vote for it first! Choices, choices!! :-) And don't forget, *Sometime* down the road, we will be seeing the Seneca V - and hopefully the ATR as well - from ROTW. Just takes time and patience!! :-)Many Cheers,Ken Wood

Wow!An Aero Commander would be great. I'm in flight school and work at an FBO that hangs a bunch of them. (Commanders) That is one "sweet" aircraft.Blake
