This aircraft offers a maximum cruise speed of approximately 250 knots, ensuring efficient transportation for a variety of regional routes. Its impressive range allows it to cover distances of up to 1,200 nautical miles. This aircraft’s high service ceiling, reaching altitudes of over 25,000 feet, makes it adaptable to a wide range of demands.

Powered by four Pratt & Whitney Canada PT6A turboprop engines, these engines give the Dash 7 the ability to achieve Short Takeoff and Landing (STOL) capabilities, making it suitable for operations in challenging environments and on shorter runways.

Additional Information

PILOT’s has confirmed that the aircraft will feature several real-world liveries to be included with the add-on. The Garmin GNS 530 will be included as optional equipment for pilots, and the developer has also confirmed built-in support for the GTNXi upon release. The developer has collaborated with Air Tindi, the largest operator of Dash 7 aircraft to this day, to design many realistic features of the Dash 7.
