    Grob G115 is a light, propeller-driven, general-aviation aircraft with low-wing and fixed landing gear. Designed and introduced by Grob Aerospace in 1985, it is used as a trainer by air forces in nine countries on four continents. Its monocoque construction consists of a single-unit fuselage and single-unit main wing. Powered by a 180 horsepower Lycoming O-360 four-cylinder engine and a three-bladed, variable-pitch MT propeller, its average cruising speed is 124 knots, and its never-exceed speed is 185 knots.

    Grob Aerospace was renamed Grob Aircraft in 2009.

    IRIS Flight Simulation Software calls the Grob G115 "one of Europe's most popular primary flight training aircraft" and says it is "a remarkable training aircraft and is a joy to fly for both student and instructor."

    This two-seat aircraft is approximately the same overall dimensions as the stock Piper J3 Cub in MSFS. The Grob G115 is heavier, more powerful, and faster than the Piper Cub, however.

    IRIS Simulations' Grob G115

    Two models are included in IRIS Simulations' package of G115s. One is the G115D "Heron" model operated by Tayside Aviation. As the only IRIS model with the two-blade propeller, the D Heron was originally operated by the British Royal Air Force and later sold to Tayside. Seven are the G115E "Tutor" model that were used by several air forces. They are identifiable not by their liveries or name but by the different shoulder patches on pilots in each of the eight aircraft.

    Significant features of IRIS's G115s are listed in its product description such as custom displays and sounds, realistic flight models, high definition texturing, an authentic manual, and a paint kit.
