Are you looking to finally use one of the most charming aircraft of the FSX era? Then this remake of the Twin Otter will ensure that you can easily start to enjoy yourself when you are out and about in the skies. This is a small-sized airliner that does everything it can to keep you on the right track.

This all-purpose aircraft has rarely been captured in such incredible detail and authenticity, and this will ensure you can fly an aircraft that does everything from polar expeditions to hitting extremely attitude and dangerous airports – this is a truly adaptive aircraft, and this version gives it the quality and realism it needs to feel truly spectacular.

What’s New?

A truly unique and engaging world of new features have been included in this aircraft to ensure that it’s easy to fly with and to get to grips with regardless of what model style you choose. This new package manages to introduce key features such as the following extra services;

  • In this package, you get access to 11 unique new models which have been created entirely from scratch to ensure they capture the right look and feel across the board. With every change included, each model has the right look and profile to match along with its real life equivalent.

  • Exceptionally easy on the frame rate, ensuring that it can work to the standard that you need. Even if you are using a fairly mediocre machine you should find that you’ll get the perfect balance between performance and graphical quality when you use this, as they aren’t a system-intensive program.

  • Every model comes with extremely high fidelity models, designed and changed time and time again to make sure it follows with the example that you would have been hoping for.

  • This does a great job on making sure that the aircraft flies in the way that you would have hoped for whilst also making sure that it stays true to its roots and its consistency. With each model, you are provided with a high-fidelity design that really does capture the eye and makes it very easy to buy into the look and feel of every model which has been included.

  • However, the realism is not just on the models – it’s in the cockpit, too. Now, an aircraft has the potential to fail as you fly it with engine failure models all included to make sure that you aren’t flying some magical machine that can never run into any particular problems.

  • This is made better by the fact that the engine simulation has been made so much more impressive as it now correctly indicates things like torque, RPM and even ITT; when put together, this can feel like a truly enjoyable system to be a part of and enjoy using later.

  • Customized electrical, fueling and hydraulic systems which are great fun to play with; each system can be managed and controlled in a manager which allows you to have total control over the way that your aircraft tends to operate. If you want to see this work to its fuel potential, you have to get used to using these systems.

Key Changes

This introduces a whole lot more than just cosmetic changes to the table, though! Instead, this package also makes sure that you have access to;

  • A whole new sound environment has been built from scratch, making the most of many new sounds effects which rip through the aircraft and make it sound more realistic than ever before. These detailed and thoughtful changes make a massive difference!

  • New avionics that ensure the system can move alongside the thought process of the Bendix King transceivers included. This also applies to features like the Collins auto pilot, the Digital Flight Data Recorder and various other little features along the way that perfectly encapsulate the beauty and style of this.

  • A whole host of other small changes are included to the whole model, though – with full featured and modified paint kits through to extensive manuals to help you make the right calls, this makes it easier than ever to learn how to fly like a professional when using this system.

  • Keep yourself on track at all times with the use of a fuel planner and a cargo loader module. Along with various other management systems, this can be the perfect solution to help you power forward and fully understand what position of the flight you are about to embark on. 

Included Models

Whilst every model included within this package is based on the real thing, each model also makes sure that it has the same high level of quality and consistency throughout the overall model design.

  • DHC6-100 Floater Cargo Edition
  • DHC6-100 Floater Passenger Edition
  • DHC6-100 Wheel Edition
  • DHC6-300 Amphibian Edition
  • DHC6-300 Float Edition

  • DHC6-300 Standard Wheel Cargo 3 blade prop Edition
  • DHC6-300 Standard Wheel Cargo 4 blade prop Edition
  • DHC6-300 Standard Wheel Passenger 3 blade prop Edition

Features

With so much variety in each of the new models and improvements, this service introduces a wide range of new avionics features which will include;

  • Customized and fully coded GPS systems with Com1 & Nav1 radios; these are fully based on the old default FSX GPS500 systems but still manage to help you navigate easily.

  • Access to United Instruments 5506L-S Altitude Alerter programs does a great job in managing and capturing the perfect feel here. It also works perfectly with a whole range of Bendix King programs which include KX, KN, KR, KT and KMA panels – now, you can have access to quality transponders, radios and audio panels to help you easily control the aircraft and make it do the hard work for you.

  • This also makes use of Collins AP-106 Autopilot features with Flight Director. Now you can get access to lovely features such as Autopilot mode, IAS Hold, Altitude Capture, Go Around, MDA, Ded Rec, HDG, Nav and Approach modes. These new features make it easier than ever before to take full control of the aircraft to ensure it does exactly what’s needed.

  • Lastly, you also get a brilliant Digital Flight data recorder which can be used on Google Maps; this makes it much easier to build the aircraft plan to work in the way that you had intended, changing everything for you.

It’s this wide range of changes and improvements that ensure you’ll find it more comfortable to use than any other equivalent on the market today.

Under The Hood

A whole range of changes have been included within the engine section, and these include;

  • A better way to indicate the engines requirements for Torque, RPM and ITT; this has been made much easier to follow and understand. It’ll also help you see where you’re headed at this current time.

  • An engine with anti-icing influences on engine parameters – this will make a big difference to ensuring you can easily control your way forward, giving you a much better way to control the engine within the aircraft.

  • Engine failures can now occur if you give it too much torque, the temperature raises too much or even the engine begins to ice up – these new changes will make it much easier to cause yourself problems. However, it will make you a more balanced pilot as you try to avoid these common errors!

  • Structural icing will now have a bigger influence on the way that the aircraft perform when you are in the air – this looks great and also makes sure that you have another problem to try and deal with when you are flying.

  • Functional Fire detection systems to help you stay on top of any major problems like this – you’ll also have a way to manage the extinguishing system to ensure you have no problems at all in controlling the solution moving forward.

  • Customized electrical, fuel and hydraulic systems help you manage the aircraft and can make it a major challenge to stay on the mark with this kind of aircraft. However, the rewards are there for you to see when you do get it right!

Extras

  • Make the most of your artistic license with the excellent paint kit which has been added in as a separate download – this makes a fine solution to any issues that you may have.

  • Extensive new manuals are penned from scratch which ensure you’ll have no problems in mastering the way forward here, helping you come to grips with the way that you manage your aircraft and also helping you to learn some extremely challenging scenarios.

  • A fuel planner and cargo loader are added in to make sure you have total control of your aircraft whilst you work, and also making sure that you can easily get to grips with the extra modules to make managing some of the more advanced aspects of flight with ease.

  • A livery manager fits in perfectly to help you get the aircraft looking just the way that you had intended.

  • A new interactive checklist to make sure you are always keeping yourself right; now, you can avoid making any massive mistakes that could hold you back from being a success!

Hello virtual experimental friends! Hey yes, he ' acts of a product Aerosoft there, among which the reputation and the seriousness, are not to be any more demonstrated. As usual, the product is exceptional. The checklist livened up as for F14, brings more inestimable one. A help which will allow you to arrest(dread) the animal with a lot of serenity. The advantage of this plane is why it was finalized(worked out); airports with short tracks(runways) and difficult environments. And there, it is a real delight. The piloting, although in the former(old), is facilitated with the GPS(GLOBAL POSITIONING SYSTEM) (GNS 530) and an automatic system which remains simple to use. It is in fact, a return in the fundamental of the piloting (not of FMS), a learned dosage between speed, laborers(operations), and observation of the parameters of flight(theft). Then, do not hesitate any more. Every good virtual pilot.

I really liked this add-on from Aerosoft. It's a great intermediate step up from smaller props. The external model is sharp and looks great, it's the internal model really shines though. The textures on the flight deck and in the cabin are crisp and overall its just a nice plane to pan around. I can't really comment on the accuracy of the flight model, but it does fly how I'd expect it to. It has massive engine power and just climbs like a rocket, great out of small strips. Sounds might be a little thin but nothing too egregious. At about 21 it's also good value for money especially compared to other similar products. Overall 5/5 Great Product

Nice little aircraft and especially useful for newcomers to flight simming or turbo prop aircraft. The navigation system leaves a lot to be desired but to me this is a slow and low visual base flyer. It is especially fun landing at small runways like SABA. Looks nice, even on a not so modest machine, sounds amazing (if twin turbo props are your thing) and the 'checklist' is a godsend.

No speed demon here, but you can fly this plane in or out of anywhere you can imagine. Great mid level plane when you are ready to move up from small GA aircraft. My only complaint is that this plane can be a real pain to taxi.

Not too impressed, Aerosoft seem to have done their fair share of work on this aircraft, but I'm not a turboprop man. I should've thought this through before buying it. Hope I can get a refund.
