The Cessna 206 Stationair is a beloved choice for many people, despite the fact that it first flew over 50 years ago. It was first released in 1962 and eventually finished up in 1986, before being resurrected by some kind souls who had used it in the past and fell in love with it.
Its combination with a powerful engine and a rather in-depth cockpit ensured that it started to become a huge hit with pilots who preferred a larger size of cabins than many of its contemporaries was providing at the time.
The Cessna 206H, though, through some very timely introductions to the series in 1998, they managed to give pilots an extremely similar configuration whilst also adding in extra doors for easier access for the staff and the passengers who are flying the aircraft.
As far as comfort goes, the H edition certainly improved upon this and made the aircraft quicker and more comfortable for fans of the series to use. The 206H is still a particularly popular name out there on the market thanks to their long standing history as a large part of the Cessna team, but one thing that is noted is the lack of demand for a new model.
This allowed the 206H to establish itself as a bit of a player in the market, and even allow for the aircraft to still get plenty of attention today.
The remake of the H in the 90s was a massive change in the direction for Cessna, with more than 220 H models being produced since.

This G1000 Extension Pack is the perfect accompaniment for Carenado's Cessna Turbo 206H Stationair. While the base package was amazing, offering a highly polished model and some fantastic features, this brilliant download takes both the usability and the re-playability to the next step.
The new special feature, that is the focus of this package, is the fully customizable Carenado G1000. It is composed of two display units; one acts as a PFD (Primary Flight Display) and the other as a MFD (Multifunction Display). Having one of these installed can completely change the way you fly; it will almost feel like you're in a whole new aircraft.
The G1000 comes complete with inbuilt TAWS (Terrain Awareness and Warning System) and TCAS (Traffic Collision Avoidance System) that have their own visual and audible alerts, as well as an inset map with traffic, topographic and terrain awareness options. With these tools, you can be sure you will always be completely aware of your surroundings, making you a safer pilot with no extra effort. On top of being able to have normal and emergency checklists on the screens, you can access a flight plan creation option directly from the MFD, allowing you to change destinations on the fly.
Using the G1000, you will also be able to enjoy the new 3D knobs technology, making the knobs and switches on the displays look incredibly realistic and feeling authentic, even when using mouse inputs. Included alongside Carenado's G1000, is a how-to PDF that is a must read for anyone new to this type of flight system; it will teach you how to customize it and make use of its various features.
This package also adds two more HD liveries into the mix, giving you a new total of seven high quality (2048 x 2048) repaints to choose from. These new repaints are simple, sleek and add the same level of detail to the model as those from the base pack.
Expanding the already fantastic Cessna Turbo 206H Stationair with new liveries and a whole new flight system, demonstrates Carenado's dedication to their work; finding ways to improve on their products that are already fantastic, by making them even more enjoyable and in this case, adding even more interactivity to the experience.

My last review wasn't approved, so I will try to remain calm with this so more people don't end up in my position. YOU MUST BUY BOTH THE AIRCRAFT AND PANEL FROM SIMSHACK. I had purchased my 206T from the steam store 2 weeks ago due to their awesome sale on Carenado products. Steam unfortunately doesn't sell the G1000 upgrade for this aircraft, so I purchased it off of simshack. After trying 30 times to install, unistall and reinstall all the required files, I still had no new panel. I emailed carenado support, and after exchanging 10 emails, their conclusion was both products must be purchased from the same retailer, even though it says nothing about anywhere on anyone's website. They then referred me back to simshack to get a refund, to which I still have yet to even receive a reply. Don't waste your time. The G1000 is cool yeah, but many of the functions you think your paying for, you don't get.
