Although I am by no means someone with an extensive knowledge or understanding of amphibian aircraft, I always liked them. So, I decided to pick up this cool mod by Jean-Pierre Brisard, Barry Blaisdell, Bob May, and Kevin Pardy of Premier Aircraft Design. It was a good take on the De Havilland DHC2-MK3 Turbo Beaver Amphibian aircraft. Based on a private version nicknamed The Raven by its owner, this is a nice touch to show you just how cool an aircraft like this can across, even with such personalization.
It sits based at the Toronto Buttonville Municipal Airport, and is a great way for you to see what this aircraft looks like up close and in person. The attention to detail and the general work put into the body, the cockpit and the performance is something to really behold. The team made this in both FSDS2 and 3, and they produced all of the extras that we have now come to expect from PAD.
Ease of Use and Features
With dynamic shine to add that extra glare to the model to the new full animations, this makes the aircraft feel alive and actually in flight. Now, it does not feel like a floating object flying through the sky without cause – it feels, looks, acts and sounds like the quality aircraft that it is.
It’s also very easy to fly, which was a nice touch. The full suspension allows you to easily take hold of the aircraft in sticky, tight situations. I found myself benefitting from the authenticity of the suspension more times than I care to remember!
Also, the water rudders are a nice touch that makes it easy for this aircraft to feel like the amphibian that it is. If you want to have a look at a private aircraft that can handle the challenge of going underwater, then this is definitely the place to start.
It’s even got a fully working cabin inside, which I thought was very impressive given just how tight and intricate the cockpit of the aircraft is. With passenger doors and cargo doors, too, this aircraft can soon feel pretty spacious inside when you see just how much work the development team have done to make it feel welcome and authentic.
It also comes with custom sounds which do a lot to make the whole process sound realistic and engaging. It’s a massive benefit and one that can go a long way to making sur you feel comfortable in the cockpit. When you start getting used to the sounds actually correlating with what you do, it soon becomes much easier to work with!
If you check the Panel_Docs folder, too, you can find a fair chunk of useful information about the process here. It can be a bit tough to get panels working with this but I found the documents found in here – and the reference and instruction documents – made it much easier to get to grips with this.
Overall? A very much impressive and well put together take on a very cool aircraft. Worth trying for any FSX users who want something new.
