Leading Edge Simulations, an X-Plane 11 developer responsible for a variety of GA aircraft such as Beechcraft Duchess, Beachcraft Sundowner or DC-3, has updated their rendition of Saab 340 to version 1.6.5.

The information about the update has been shared through the X-Pilot forums by the founder of X-Aviation, Cameron. This update brings us new CTOT, taxi lights, improved autopilot as well as elevator trim, and a bug fix to G/S/ Horizontal Deviation Indicators.

The developer also noted that this is the last Saab 340 update of the v 1.6.x series. To update the aircraft, you have to log in to your X-Aviation account and redownload the aircraft.

In order to properly update the aircraft to v1.6.5, re-download the aircraft files from the X-Aviation store and replace the previous ones. The aircraft can be purchased exclusively through the previously mentioned store for a price of $49.95 or €41.15.

My aviation enthusiasm started back in March 2016 and since then I fly almost every day when I have time. I always like to discover new places or new things. The vehicles or any kind of technical things always fascinated me. As I was younger, I was also a journalist in a school magazine, so when I got an opportunity to write articles about my favorite hobby, I immediately jumped in.
