Product description:

The De Havilland Canada DHC-6 Twin Otter is one of the most versitile aircraft ever designed. Still Canada`s most successful commercial aircraft program with more than 800 built, the Twin Otter remains popular for its rugged construction and useful STOL performance. 


The De Havilland Canada DHC-6 Twin Otter (aka Twotter) is one of those aircraft that should have been replaced by some new aircraft at least a decade ago. But it`s not. The DHC-6 still flies and in fact the amount of registered is risen at this moment. The main reason for it is the fact it is just as much at home at the poles as it is in the tropics. It is used to maintain routes to airports up to 9000 feet and to ferry between islands. It will fly everywhere using wheels, floats or skis. It`s a legend. 

This STOL twin turboprop commuter airliner was in production between 1964 and 1988, with over 800 build it has been the most successful aircraft build in Canada. The model is currently been upgraded to a 400 version by Viking Air who holds the type certificate for the Twin Otter. 

The high end model presented by Aerosoft and partly designed by SibWings includes all versions, and advanced avionics set. It is perfectly suited for use on some of our most favorite scenery products such as Lukla X and German Airfields 1. The gauges include two high end Bendix King systems that provide near perfect navigation and communication capabilities. Of course the original panel is also an option. One of the main design goals was to keep the memory and CPU load of this aircraft as low as possible to ensure good framerates. By keeping the number of non essential items in the models low this was achieved. The Twin Otter is only just more demanding then the very basic default aircraft of FSX! 

Features: 
Five models (100 floats/wheels/ski, 300 wheel/wheel ski) 
Three different interiors (passengers, cargo, skydiver) 
Fourteen different liveries (paint kit provided to registered customers) 
Five different high definition flight models (exact on the numbers and very realistic feedback) 
Although complex, very easy on frame rate 
Sound set in full FSX format with sound cones (so when you walk around the aircraft the sound changes), with wheel, float and ski versions. 
Almost all gauges in the Model and not in GAUGE or XML format. This makes them totally smooth in Virtual Cockpit (same update as your frame rate). 
Seven view modes defined, no 2d cockpit provided (but you won`t miss it) 
Fully compliant to FSX dual cockpit and FSX failure modes 
Standard avionics or upgraded set with KX165A and KLN90B 
Dual Bendix/King KX 165A Transceiver, advanced simulation of this best known transceiver : 
  1. Active and Standby frequencies with Direct Tune option 
  2. Stores 6 most used frequencies 
  3. Count up and countdown timer 
  4. Navigation OBS page (with To/From indication) 
  5. Navigation bearing page showing bearing to the signal station
Bendix/King KLN 90B GPS Navigation System, advanced simulation of this complex navigation instrument : 
  1. Complete flight plan with course deviation, ground speed ETE and Bearing 
  2. Position display with Lat/Lon and VOR radial and distance 
  3. Desired track, track error, current track and minimal safe altitude 
  4. Waypoint entering with altitude and full calculation option 
  5. Moving map with declutter options 
  6. Super Navigation screens using both displays 
  7. Altitude Calculations 
  8. True Airspeed Calculations 
  9. Wind Calculations 
  10. VNV Angle calculations 
  11. Speed and Temperature conversions 
  12. Time Calculations 
  13. Fuel Load and Fuel Flow Calculations 
  14. Air Data Calculations 
  15. Trip Planning 
  16. Airport Data pages with location, runways, frequencies, directly send to flight plan 
  17. Nearest Airport, nearest VOR, nearest NDB 
  18. Full Time / Distance displays 
  19. Direct-To options
