Carenado's wonderful representation of the Cessna 337H Skymaster has received an upgrade, as part of their fantastic HD Series. The Cessna 337H features is a turbocharged twin-engine civil utility aircraft. Less than 150 of this particular model were ever built, but as this model is available as an immediate download for Microsoft Flight Simulator X and Lockheed Martin Prepar3D, fortunately that isn't an issue.

Beautiful high resolution textures (2048 x 2048) are wrapped around a polygon optimized model, so that you can enjoy incredibly detailed liveries without it affecting your frame-rates. Two models are included in the package, with one and two pilots, as well as a total of six liveries in a range of colors and styles. One of these, is a plain white texture, that you can use as a template when designing your own personalized liveries.

With full moving parts and animated sections, this Cessna 337H is provides a fun and lively experience. Numerous visual effects and mapping techniques have been used so that textures react to environmental factors, such as light, in a realistic manner; internal and dynamic shadows as well as good use of bloom lights, create an even more visually stimulating aircraft.

Navigation, landing and taxi lights look better than they ever have, thanks to new night lighting technology. These lighting effects extend into the 3D modeled and interactive virtual cockpit, where you'll find separate switches for the cabin lights and instrument lights, the ability to toggle the yoke and a customizable panel for adjusting various settings such as window transparency and instrument reflections. The ability to fine tune your in cockpit experience means that you can fine tune the atmosphere and environment, to what you feel is the most realistic, and enjoy even more immersive flights as a result.

A set of high quality digital stereo sounds adds a lot of depth to a great looking model, and makes the aircraft as a whole feel more real. On top of that, Carenado's Cessna 3737H has been tested by real Skymaster pilots, to ensure that the weight and balance, performance, and even the behavior of the aircraft feels as close to the real thing as possible. Whether this is your first aircraft, or your one hundredth, this aircraft offers something aesthetically a bit different, while maintaining Carenado's signature quality.

This is a beautiful model of the Cessna 337H Skymaster from Carenado! The HD series is a very real and accurate reproduction of this airplane. I bought this airplane twice...when it was first introduced and now for FSX: Steam Edition. It's my favorite twin engine airplane. Thanks to Carenado for their awesome work!
