Quality always counts for a lot in aviation, and the Beechcraft Model 18 was always known for its quality. This impressive aircraft delivered 6-11 seats and provided a light aircraft that could be used for all manner of reasons. Indeed, the versatility helped to see the Beechcraft Model 18 stand out as one of the most impressive aircraft of its era, leading to 32-years of continuous construction and production.
This made it one of the most commonly used aircraft in the world for a stage, and it played a role in civilian transport, cargo transport, and even military warfare. This take on the aircraft for FSX and P3D makes a fine choice for those who would like to try one of the most impressive aircraft built in the first half of the 20th Century.
The control and scale of the aircraft are so different from a modern machine that it can feel like a different kind of flying. This has been captured well, making the D18S one of the most raucous yet rewarding aircraft you can fly on the market. For something which breaks away entirely from the standard aircraft you may be used to, try out the Beechcraft D18S.
