About This File

FSX Piper Turboprop Trainer. So you've trained in your Piper Cherokee 140, gotten your ticket, worked your time up in the London Flying School's rentals and walking the flight line, you see the training school has a new "sports car" that has a smell of Kerosene about it. You've heard about high "TBO times" of turbines, they are lightweight, produce high horsepower ratings and burn cheaper fuel. The local instructor says there's a lot to learn, as in higher fuel consumption rates, burning "heavier fuel" weight per gallon, you'll fly faster ground speeds and learn "funny" ground handling practice (engine controls). Still interested, he goes on, a real fuel management problem exists to get the range (and reserve fuel) you may be used to seeing in a gasoline 140, as seen by four fuel tanks (less useful load). The intrigue continues when "Full-Power" take-offs become rare to keep passengers comfortable. After all, this is still a (Rien Cornelissen) Cherokee PA-28 airframe. You'll have to fly carefully so as not to bend the wings. In the spirit of the FSX Mooney Turbine, here is a Piper Turboprop trainer, for use in your higher altitude long cross-country trips.
