Carenado is a household name in the flight sim industry. If you're bought flight sim payware add-ons before, you've likely heard of Carenado.

Carenado is based in Santiago, Chile, and has a team of developers, designers, and 3D modelers.
Known for the prop and turboprop models that they are famous for and have focused on, they also have small business jets in their add-on portfolio too. They have even developed a model for the Dassault Falcon 50EX - likely their largest.
They have received numerous awards and accolations in the flight sim community over the years. Their support team are always on-hand and responses are always answered in timely manner.
Rated 2.3/5.0 based on 4 customer reviews
I have this plane for over a year and it has several quirks that annoy me. When turning on the battery, the first switch takes a long time for it to respond and if you try switching on the second battery switch before the first one responds, the entire sim locks up requiring shutting down of X-Plane 11 and starting over.
The other quirk I discovered is this is the only plane in my entire hangar that causes the sim's video to go jerky, causing the sim to freeze up constantly and momentarily while flying this plane.
My PC is a Intel i5 7600K, 32GB RAM and a Nvidia GTX1070 video card with onboard 8GB memory. This should not be happening but it does with only this aircraft. Too many bugs. Stay away.
Without these bugs, I enjoy flying this aircraft. Fun learning experience with X-Plane 11.

Absolutely love the aircraft, but bought it specifically for G1000 . I was amazed that you cant use procedures function even though manual describes how to. If this is how payware doesnt function....then it stinks. Absolutely disappointed.
1/5 Verified Purchase
The product is nice, (graphic, sotware etc.) but the G1000 installated by Carenado is unusable, so i can't yet a good flight with this Phenom 100. I will try to contact Carenado staff to ask what i had purchased.
5/5 Verified Purchase
The product I got was exactually as they said it would be. I Had no trouble getting the product either. Checkout was fast and easy and the product was delivered just as fast.
