The revision of Carenado's B200 King Air has just landed with their phenomenal HD Series for Microsoft Flight Simulator X and Prepar3D. And once again, Carenado dazzle us with incredible detail throughout every aspect of this impressive add-on package.
The original model is super tight and exceptionally good looking, with smooth yet sharp edges. Now looking better than ever before, as Carenado utilize their astonishing texture materialization technique and high definition textures; screen shots of the B200 could be confused for a professional photograph taken with a very expensive camera. The textures and the model come across as one united object that looks as real as it ever could, as opposed to a model with textures stuck on it. The seamless effect is aided by some brilliant mapping and a brand new lighting rendering system. So lights react with the aircraft and the environment in a realistic manner, including illuminating objects on the ground, and outside effects are reflected in the surface of the King Air.
An improved set of engine sounds have been recorded directly from a real PT6A engine, to ensure that your experience is as authentic as possible. A plethora of finely crafted 3D gauges reside in the interactive virtual cockpit. Here you'll find a Avidyne Multifunction Display and original Electronic Flight Instrument System and two GNS530s. At night, realistic light effects illuminate the cockpit and the various panels, revealing a lots of little details and adding more depth through the use of dynamic shadows. Detail continues through to the cabin, where smooth leather seats are softly lit under the glow of the moody cabin lighting.
To give you as much aesthetic choice as possible, Carenado have done a few things. They have included six of their wonderful HD liveries, and a HD blank texture for creating your own custom repaints. They have also created a customizable panel that allows you to control certain static elements, levels of transparency and reflection on both windows and instruments.
As far as civil utility aircraft go, the King Air is a best seller. With thousands built and still in active service, it need never worry about ever retiring thanks to its new home in our virtual skies.

This aircraft is a must buy. The details are incredible and the engine sounds are very realistic. Anyone who loves the twin engine King Air will not be dissatisfied with this product. Carenado designs are simply the BEST in aircraft design for simulation and sound effects. Also the aircraft lighting is superb both interior and exterior...very smooth in flight too. I am hoping that Carenado designs a Pilatus.
