Flight simulators give you all the power and skill that you need to get around the skies in the best possible experience. Depending on your systems specifications and what simulator you run, your experience and the validity and authenticity of this experience will be determined by how fluid the actual software runs and how good the graphical output of the game is in comparison to your machine. Therefore, many people feel like they aren’t getting the maximum out of their flight simulation experience because of the limitations in the design and quality of the simulator in use.
However, with X-Plane you don’t have this same problem – the limitations of the engine are nowhere near at their peak. Instead, you can include new packs and changes to get yourself a far more enjoyable experience in general. Improving the graphics, changing the function and overall upping the accuracy of the simulator should always be your main priority and with the help of this brilliant Beechcraft 1900 update you can enjoy one of the most charismatic aircrafts out there in the finest possible detail.
The Beechcraft 1900
Although it may only carry 19 passengers, this twin-engine aircraft is one of the most popular of it’s time. It was used as a regional airline that carried people across the country they lived in, and was also used quite regularly as a means of transporting freight from A to B. however, it’s served a long and varied purpose – it was even a regular partner for the US Military and governments. designed by the popular Beechcraft Division of the Textron Aviation firm, the Beechcraft 1900 has went down in recent history because of the immense comfort and quality it provides.
It was first launched in 1982, and today it’s still used by other aircraft companies and across the use. The likes of Eagle and Great Lake Airways use a huge amount of these aircraft across various different templates and markets. Their immense reliability and comfort made them a really useful tool for aircraft firms that needed something a little more professional than other aircrafts. Therefore, if you are looking to use this popular aircraft within a Flight Simulator you can truly enjoy yourself with the closest remake of this type of aircraft found within any simulator.
While hugely popular, it’s an aircraft that’s fairly refined and stylish and therefore to make a truly accurate representation requires a far more delicate design style. To this end, this takes everything from the design style to the typical flight simulator aircraft and performance and makes a really close version of what you are looking for to use whenever you feel like flying one of the most enjoyable regional airliners around!

Original high-quality digital stereo sounds have been recorded through direct and consistent use of the aircraft – this let us build the most realistic and genuine version of the aircraft possible. This means that you get an aircraft that sounds real as well as looks and performs as close to the real thing
A totally customizable panel is useful for controlling the transparency of the windows, giving you full control over the instrument reflections and static elements that you can see as you fly around – this includes wheel chocks and turbine/exhaust covers, providing you with all of the little features that make an aircraft stand out from one another
Realistic effects and bonuses have been included like 3D night lights on the panel, as well as the genuine and realistic behavior compared to the real thing. this gives you an authentic weight balance and means that have been adjusted and checked by real pilots to provide maximum authenticity
Ice and rain effects have been included to make sure that when the weather follows you can notice a genuine difference between before and after – this helps to build realism and high-end quality when you are flying

High-end graphical changes and improvements including 5 HD liveries, 1 blank livery as well as a wealth of different performance tables and references. This means that you can sit there and learn all about the different performance factors
One of the most important parts of the aircraft simulation business is getting that level of authenticity – it means that you need to come up with something truly unique and engaging that really goes beyond the call of duty in comparison to the detail levels of most games. With this package, though, you can make sure that you have a real feeling and genuine representation of this excellent aircraft.

Business Jets have a special something, a certain air about them that exudes the qualities of comfort, performance and professionalism. It’s why big companies want them and it’s why I love flying them in flight simulators. The trouble is that those same qualities are remarkably hard to reproduce in a flight simulator, especially when there are hard limits to what either the software, or your machine can handle. It falls then, to development teams like Carenado to do the impossible, and create amazing add-ons that are so close to the real thing, that those qualities shine through regardless.
For those of us that want to push the realism as far as we can, finding add-ons that are 64-bit compatible is almost a must, allowing us to get the most out of our systems performance. Carenado’s Beechcraft 1900 is one of those add-ons that truly excels in this regard; the level of quality is phenomenal. Every nook and cranny is accounted for, every small surface given the same attention as the 1900’s most prominent parts. So many details lovingly recreated and adorned with high definition textures, ensuring that the level realism is always peaked.
The virtual cockpit is incredibly atmospheric and looks just the real thing, especially when the soft blue edge lighting illuminates the instruments. There is a customizable panel that allows you to tweak certain settings such as instrument reflections and window transparency. Considering that not everyone shares the same mind set in terms of what is “the most realistic”, people have different tastes in that regard, so the ability to change these elements means that you can make the most realistic experience for you, and not what someone else tells you is the most realistic. There are also numerable effects like ice and rain effects and volumetric propeller effects that all work towards creating a seamless model, making it easy to completely immerse yourself in your flights.
I was really pleased with the handful of clean and stylish liveries that make the whole aircraft even more compelling. My personal favorites are the sleek black fuselage of Air New Zealand and the precision curves of Era Alaska, but it doesn’t matter which one you choose - this aircraft truly shines at delivering that luxury vibe.

Really nice aircraft, cockpit is clear and easy to read. Outside textures are crisp and show up well in X Plane 11. Flight dynamics are spot on also.
