It's a beautiful plane... Make sure your system can handle it. Mine couldn't. It loaded up well but when I started the motor it locked the system up... it was even worse when I re-installed and followed the specifications in the pdf. Must be the HD aspect of it. Who knows. I've got other Carenado planes and they're great! My rating relates solely to my experience putting the plane on my system. Your experience may vary depending on your stuff, and things...

It´s a beautiful airplane rendered in the Carenado style , the sound of the engines and cockpit are very good . Flying the plane is not so difficult . If you are a simmer you can land this plane in a day practice . Delivery was direct download and I did´t get any problems here on simshack . Install the software and you can fly it right away . Price was here very low , at carenado.com you pay more for this airplane .

For what this aircraft costs, I am a bit disappointed that I can't complete a single flight without losing my number 1 engine. I followed the checklist, and even went as light as I could on the engines, and still, randomly the shit just loses all RPM and no re-start can be accomplished, i have to dumb my realism settings down to be able to fly the damn plane without an engine loss. Kind of B.S, don't waste your money.

I LOVE this bird, the sounds, the controls and the looks. The VC is top notch and I am glad I purchased this plane. The only down fall is the lights on the inside don't light up, and the landing light aren't configured in the config file correctly. Also the landing lights model are pointing to high so they dont illuminate the tarmac. I really wish I could fly this at night but I can't.
I had the same issue as Joseph until I went through an actual start up of the real thing and realized that the fuel crossfeed switch is always off at start up. Flies great. Only complaint is that cruise speed is well below the listed speed of the actual plane. If anyone has an answer for that????

I purchased and installed the kingair 350i last week and are still busy trying to get the fms working. It keeps showing: "loading data base" whatever I try , deleting, re-installing etc etc. Support from Carenado is sparse and not very helpfull. I regret bying this software.

A fantastic plane! No GPS here, so it is a great way to get introduced to a flight management computer like you would be using in a tube liner. This store also has the best price for this or pretty much anything.

Good aircraft for learning to fly with simulators. I purchased some days ago and after kinda of problems to install the fmc it seems to work fine.
