    This fascinating research-based educational project was developed based on extensive real-world flying and experience with twin-PT6A aircraft, as well as high performance jets. The project is introducing key systems and elements which were developed and tailored specifically to the Pond-Racer's original air-frame and design features, extending its usability from a stick-and-throttle racer to an all-weather cross country commuter.

    The detailed yet easy-to-read manual will allow the virtual-pilot to learn how turboprop engines and other peripheral systems architectures and modes of operations are being operated in an aircraft capable of cruising at above 30,000 feet.

    An easy to paint paint-kit, as well as three liveries are included as well.

      Hopefully someday...

      but they're remaining steadfast that they are X-Plane only due to it's unique development tools & results.

      From what I've read, x-plane makes re-creating accurate aerodynamics much more straightforward than other simulators.
