TorqueSim has today, almost two weeks after the announcement, posted a first development update of their currently developer BN-2 Islander for X-Plane 11.
Last time we showed you pictures, our Islander wore Cape Air’s iconic dark blue livery. This week, we’re featuring VAL’s striking orange/blue combo in our exterior shots:
TorqueSim has stated, that they are now finally ready to show off the interior of the aircraft. The aircraft has been in service for over half a century, and the developers wanted to reflect some of this history.
Islanders fly all over the world. Whether rain or shine, snow, or tropical heat, short jungle strips, or large international airports, these aircraft serve in some of the most difficult conditions known in aviation.
The aircraft should feature highly capable avionics package, dual GPS, AFM’s G5 instrumentation, a full set of circuit breakers with accurate amperages and redundancy of full gauge sets for both pilot and copilot.
They’re integrated with a powerful custom-coded electrical system which far exceeds X-Plane’s in scope and capability. A custom KFC 225 autopilot system and Garmin-like transponder round out the package.
The aircraft beta testing is planned to begin shortly.
