Blackbird Simulations Releases Beechcraft T6A ADV for MSFS

Blackbird Simulations took to their Facebook page earlier today to announce the release of their rendition of the Beechcraft T6A ADV for Microsoft Flight Simulator. The release of the product was announced during the FSExpo 2024 event happening in Las Vegas this weekend.

About the Beechcraft T6A ADV

The Beechcraft T-6 Texan II is a single-engine turboprop aircraft built by Textron Aviation; it is a trainer aircraft based on the Pilatus PC-9 and replaced the United States Air Force’s Cessna T-37B Tweet. The Beechcraft T6A is used by the USAF for basic pilot training and Combat Systems Officer (CSO) training, the US Navy and US Marine Corps for primary Naval Aviator and Naval Flight Officer training, and by the Royal Canadian Air Force, Greek Air Force, Israeli Air Force, and Iraqi Air Force for basic flight training.

The Beechcraft T6A is a low-wing cantilever monoplane with enclosed tandem seating for two people. It is powered by a single P&W Canada PT6A-68 turboprop engine in tractor configuration with an aluminium, 97-inch, four blade, constant-speed, variable pitch, non-reversing, feathering propellor assembly. The aircraft also has a retractable tricycle landing gear and is fitted with Martin-Baker Mark 16 ejection seats and canopy fracturing system.

Key Features

Blackbird Simulations’ Beechcraft T6A ADV comes with a stellar flight system and model, and is jam-packed with various features, effects, and dynamic animations for simmers to enjoy. The product features engine & propellor blow out and fire effects, tire sparks and wheel blow outs, a fully simulated circuit breaker system, and the option to fly from the front or back seat.

The aircraft also includes an automatic co-pilot option which allows the unoccupied cockpit in flight to maintain its configuration. So if you choose to fly from the back, the front virtual co-pilot will make adjustments to maintain stable flight. All analog, electrical, hydraulic, pressurization/ECS, fuel and oil system are fully custom and fully simulated for maximum realism.

Further features include an EFB for full range of customizations, a 1:1 scale functional GPS, custom control mapping, night lighting effects, trim device adjustability, and failure system interface. The developer has also added more than ten liveries in the package, pilot model animations, a curated sound pack for maximum immersion, and VR compatibility.
