For pilots who like to put pressure on themselves, aircraft like the Saab 340 can be great fun.
This faithful recreation looks to capture that enjoyment just right, making sure that you can take to the skies in a popular aircraft and feel it far more realistically than beforehand. Ever since 1983, the Saab 340 has been a popular aircraft family.
While production may have ended in 1998, it was seen as a very productive member of the regional aircraft market for a while.
Sales eventually dictated that production stopped, but it's still used in active service. the likes of Loganair, PenAir and Silver Airways still use it today with over 450 of the models created and sold across the world.
Now, you can feel just what it is like to pilot an aircraft of such specific quality as it's created with input from real-life pilots of the Saab 340.

Excellent product, quality Carenado is present but the documentation deserves to be a little more explicit. Very good value for money Simshack with a very practical website. Congratulations.
This plane looks good, but nothing more. The GPU unit, extarnal power doesn't work, the startup not realistic at all, the fms very simple etc
