Sorry about the library folks - it wasn't me! Some of you may have received an email copy :-rollNo, this time there's no copilot. Gotta leave space for sim-fanatic passengers who want to ride up-front ;)The right-side view was restricted enough - and I ran out of polygons. With a keen eye, you'll notice the 'pilot' is rather thin...Anyway, once the library is cleared-up I hope you alll download it OK and enjoy playing with it :-wave ******************* Jonathan Point *******************

Jon,Just started a flight San Fran to Sac, this is a beautiful aircraft. Fly's wonderfully. WOW!!! I really like this one. I must confess though she may get a little "skinned-up" when I fly her to Washington, as I'm determined to try a flight out of Impasse.This plane litterly leapt into the air. Throttled up and acceleration was quick and smooth (then I made it to EOR and got takeoff clearance. heh). Brakes are nice and strong. Been very easy to control in-flight.That's a great dash panel and the views are very good. Slick use for the radio panel.Thank you Jon!!!JimB.Blast it, wanted to post a screen shot, but Opera seems to be blocking it. Darn.Have to ask: That pilot texture, is that you? JimB

...And so it came to pass that Frizbee did gaze upon the aircraft, and verily he was well pleased with what he saw, for it was good.One question thou...what keys do I need to know for the autopilot? Apr, lvl, spd, etc.

Yes, I remember some login problems some time ago and those were related to Avsim's use of cookies that didn't seem to refer to the site from which they were being sent. If it doesn't work you may try to play with your security settings. Login as well as uploads require that you accept Avsim cookies, even those that may appear to be "third party". Another thing, the images have to be JPEG and the max file size is 125 kb. Hence, you'll have to convert and reduce size and/or quality until it will pass.Here's a screenshot taken north of the Boeing Field:http://forums.avsim.net/user_files/67664.jpgbest regards,Hans Petter

Chris, oim floin tha pline properly "mate" :-)Besides, this is a turboprop rather than a "prop" plane. Other turboprops cruise at more than 200 knots. In many ways a turboprop is the best of two worlds -- a jet engine for power and a prop that bites into the air. Jet engines are uneconomical until you reach a certain altitude and piston engines get short of breath before you reach high altitudes. A turboprop, on the other hand, combines the low altitude performance of props with the high altitude capability of jets.Hans Petter
