The Model of the 146 used in the file is painted in silver and red with distinctive logos on the side.

The British Aerospace 146 was originally designed as a regional airliner. The plane was in production from 1983 until 2002 during which time nearly 400 were produced. The BAE 146 is the most successful British civil jet to date. The plane is a high wing monoplane and has four turbofan engines mounted on pylons beneath the wings.

The Plane is very quiet compared to other jets and was frequently marketed under the name Whisperjet. The Plane is a common staple of most European airlines. The BA 146 plane is known for it’s simple but efficient design. The plane has two airbrakes that can be used during flights.

Due to its unique design, for several years the 146 was the only plane capable of landing at London City Airport due to the locations steep approach. It is also one of the few planes that can make profitable flights with only half the seats full. The plane is popular with cargo operators and is the most numerous aircraft in many freighter fleets.

Editorial

Revered as the quietest jet liner on the planet, I decided to grab this interesting little piece of aviation history to see how well the designer could make it transcend into the simulated world. The Aerospace 146 Cargo Connect is a charming piece of hardware, something that really does a good job for providing the world’s quietest jetliner with that tag for a reason. Both in real life and with this take on it, this aircraft is like a phantom!

Fully compatible with FSX, too, I decided to try it out and see how impressed I would be with the aircraft beyond its silence and precision when flying. It took me a matter of seconds to install and was very easy to start using, making it very easy for me to hop into the cockpit.

With two liveries to also pick from it had plenty of nice little extras included that I never expected, but how did it perform in accordance with reality?

The Realism

Designed as a regional airliner, you can feel its comfort and class as it flies across the skies with minimal fuss. It was very easy to use and therefore very much in line with reality – all reports and interviews I watched regarding its operation made reference to its ease of use. It is, at the time of writing, the most successful British civil date that has ever been produced to date and for that reason it has become a bit of British aviation history.

If you like a bit of realism then you will enjoy this mod as it takes the heritage of the model very seriously. From the scale and looks to the way that it performs, even right down to the way the logo is designed and placed on, is realistic. It all looks great and does a very impressive take on the real thing so if authenticity is what you want from your mods, this is well worth taking the time to try it out.

The BA 146

This is an aircraft which does, without a doubt, create something unique and interesting. Known for its efficient and effective design, this aircraft has two airbrakes which can be used during flights for a deeply impressive general system.

I felt that was a very important note to keep in mind when I was flying because this aircraft was the picture of efficiency and control; I felt under no pressure when flying with this mod as it seemed to handle itself like a bit of a dream.

The unique design obviously helps with that but it was an aircraft that I really enjoyed flying around with. The designer of the mod done a great job on capturing the reality of the situation whilst giving me an easy way to appreciate this mod from a technological standpoint. It’s a lot of fun to fly around with, and something that I would be more than happy to recommend to others who want to experiment or want to relive their own experience with this particular aircraft.
