When I first picked this mod up, I wasn’t really sure what to expect. The Super King Air is an aircraft that I know relatively well, but not one that I have used too much in recent times. So, I picked up this rendition of it to see what I made of the overall attention to detail. My hope was that I’d see all the typical distinctive features of the King Air come to life, including the wing areas and things like the cabin pressure as well as fuel capacity. I’ve used takes on the King Air that missed out on some of its more distinctive features, so did this make the same mistake?
An Excellent Take
No, it does not. I love the attention to detail – it captures all the little things that make this so different to the normal King Air. Now, given the fact this is over 40 years old, I do have to say that it does feel a little limited in comparison to some of the modern aircraft I have gotten used to. However, it does add that classical feel to things for more – given the overall success of the Super King Air, anyway, I could hardly say it lacked quality.
It just isn’t the same quality as the modern aircraft. In terms of the reference material, though, the developers have got this to be about as close as it should be. This model is based on the original ’73 edition, with 3-bladed propellers and an 850HP P&W Canada PT6A-41. This gives it a nice “oomft” when flying, and ensures that it has that more rigid, classical feel in the cockpit.
The aircraft certainly boosts and the only complaint that I would have is that it’s a little awkward to control. However, again, given the time constraints of when the model comes from, I cannot really complain too much!
This model is used in Greenland aviation circles for transport, light cargo management, passenger crafts and medical care. I felt like all the little extras that make it stand out as a specific-purpose aircraft are well designed and helps to add a bit of color and zest to the cockpit.
Overall? I’d have to say that I’m pretty damn impressed with the work that’s gone in here. The textures are pretty smooth, and the main gripes I have with the model more stem from the limitations of the real thing, not this rendition.
Worth your time if you are looking for an FS2004-compatbile Super King Air 200.
