    Socata's Trinidad TB21 GT2 is a light aircraft with a single piston engine, low wings and retractable tricycle gear. It cruises at 163 knots, climbs to 25,000 feet (7,625 meters), and carries four people plus cargo. The aircraft resembles the FSX Mooney Bravo in basic structure and general size and capacity, but it is lighter and slower because of its wider fuselage. Owners say the aircraft's comfort compensates for its slower speeds. First introduced in 1985, it is part of a family of aircraft developed in the 1970s. Although similar to civilian aircraft, it has been used by militaries around the world for basic flight training.

    Lionheart Creations's Trinidad TB21 GT2

    The Trinidad TB21 GT2 by Lionheart Creations is compatible with FSX SP2, FSX Acceleration, FSX Steam and all versions of P3D. This compatibility is not mentioned in the product description or manual, but the installation program lists the compatible simulators. I reviewed the FSX Acceleration version.

      Hello, thank you for the review. Do you plan any head-to-head comparison with (also) recently released TB-21 / TB-10 from Just Flight?
      I think there are few simmers there twisting their heads on which one to buy.

      If you would like to add a Flight1 GTN gauge to the panel, the JustFlight one is the one to get.

      Really nice plane!

      I haven't got this as I already have too many low wing a/c in this class and I don't use them often.

      Overall though, I have a lot from Lionheart. The only negative thing I can say about his work is that the interior visuals are very good but not great. Otherwise the flight handling, flight systems, and exterior modeling are excellent! The icing on the cake is that he is a nice guy.

      I exchanged some emails with him regarding an issue I had with one a/c. I found him to be was pleasant , attentive to details, and seriously interested in the experience that I had with his work.

      I'd recommend anything that he offers that looks like it might be up your area in interest in flight sim.
