Purchased mine, right after you put the file up! Had been checking since 05:00 this morning (Tucson time). Now if I could find a valid reason to go home from work and play with it. NOTE: I already tried " Can I go home and play flightsim ". I don't think they bought into that. hmmmm.Thanks!JohnnyKTUS

The airplane is magnificent, but I think I already found an error maybe I am wrong. Hopefully I am wrong. Well what I found is that if one of the engines quit the vaccum instruments die. Maybe in this airplane that is normal I don't know, but I have flown several real twins and they all have vaccum pumps in both engines.Anyway the airplane is still well worth the $22 dollars. The flight dynamics are beautifull, the visual model is perfect and very clean, the virtual cockpit is also beautifull(really beautifull) and the GPS oh my god you got to check that out(a color GPS that functions like the real thing. I would have easily pay the 22 bucks for the GPS alone.Really a very nice job, though I don't know how really did it.

Jim - Looks really good. I just read the manual but have a question. Is the GPS expandable like the main instruments and engine gauges? (The old eyes ain't what they used to be :-) ).Trip

Jim a hearty Congratulations and Thank You to you, Roger and the whole team that brought us this masterpiece! Everyone has an aircraft that holds a special place in their heart. For me the 421 is one of those planes. For the price of dinner and a movie I have a brand new Golden Eagle! :-coolI've been waiting for this one a long time, Thanks again!Skully:-wavehttp://ftp.avsim.com/dcforum/User_files/3d01446f296b85a7.jpg

Hi Skully,Thank you.Of all the twins that I get the pleasure of flying, the 421 is my absolute favorite. Whenever I get a call to fly her my heart almost races. Why Cessna never continued the series I will never know.I am really gald that you are enjoying the 421.Is it safe to say that we were honest with our claims? (-:Best,Jim RhoadsFlight1Great picture by the way!!

Yes, I believe it would be safe to say that your honest with your claims :-lolI think the reason Cessna discontinued their piston twin line and most of their singles was poor sales and even poorer economy after the Carter years. Things were no better for Piper and Beechcraft. Cessna concentrated on the profitable Citation line and who know's, we may someday see these beauties back in production! :)
