    Review: Carenado - SR22 GTSx Turbo

    The SR22 is one of the most popular GA planes of the 21st century, so it's appropriate that Carenado would make an X-Plane 11 version of the SR22 GTSx Turbo. Their version includes the modern Perspective G1000 glass cockpit, a nice selection of liveries and more. Reviewer Robin Tannahill really liked the plane and enjoyed flying it.
