Beechcraft 390 Premier IA for X-Plane1 reviews
In the mid-1990s, work began on a new range of aircraft by Raytheon/Hawker Beechcraft. The aim was to create an impressive aircraft for commercial aviation, and in 2001 the Premier I prototype was completed. The aircraft suffered struggling performance at first, with the Premier 1 failing to live up to lofty expectation. Erratic brakes, a poorly designed cabin, a weak cockpit, and a substandard level of performance on the runway led to change. Read more...

This meant that the creation of the next edition, the Premier IA, was just around the corner. In 2006, this $7m edition of the aircraft was released, and over 160 were built in a five-year period. Having quickly improved over the performance, cabin, and braking issues of the Premier 1, this helped to change the course of this particular range of Beechcraft aircraft. Still in use today, over 290 of the Premier range have been built - with the IA widely credited with averting an expensive disaster for the manufacturers.
The Premier IA edition of the Beechcraft 390 was a big improvement over the original model that was released in 2001. With the IA edition, new changes were made to make the cabin interior more modern, robust, and comfortable for the pilots. Also, improvements were made to the flight systems to ensure that the Premier IA was suitable for every flight purpose.
Now, you can try out the Beechcraft 390 Premier IA in X-Plane 11. This recreation looks to ensure you can enjoy this 46ft aircraft with all of its strengths and weaknesses intact. For a challenging and rewarding flight with a nice modern twist, try out the Premier IA.

As a retired pilot in real life I started using X-Plane 11 because it gives me a very close feeling to the real thing. few aircrafts behave like their model in real aviation, I found that this aircraft purshaed here with silshack is one of them. I tested it at a friend place and that is why I bought it. Why here at silshck because they always have the best price. As a long time customer I started with MS Flight simulator, then P3dv and now X-plane 11 and pushased some of mu aircarft here. So to make it short I strongly recommand this aircraft the 390 premier 1A and SIMSHACK
