A repaint for Rob Richardson's freeware FSX Acceleration Scottish Aviation Twin Pioneer. G-APRS c/n 561 first flew on 13th September 1959 and was leased to Fisons for six months for aerial survey work. Following this she was leased to German air taxi operator Deutsche Taxiflug before being returned to Prestwick for overhaul and minor modifications in March 1961. She was leased to Sierra Leone Airlines for twelve months and On return from West Africa in January 1962 joined the RAF as XT610 at the Empire Test Pilots School at Boscombe Down. She was sold to Flight One in February 1975 as G-BCWF based at Staverton and was used for aerial survey work once again on behalf of British Aerospace. She has since been purchased by Air Atlantic and reverted to G-APRS. She is still hired by the Empire Test Pilots School from time to time - hence her current 'Raspberry Ripple' color scheme. Repaint by Peter Watkins.

description=Powered by two Alvis Leonides 531 radial engines, the Twin Pioneer was a high-wing cabin monoplane with a triple fin and rudder assembly and fixed tailwheel undercarriage. The prototype Twin Pioneer, registered G-ANTP, first flew at Prestwick Airport on 25 June 1955. Flight trials proved that the aircraft had a very short landing run and the aircraft was displayed at the September 1955 Society of British Aircraft Constructors Show at Farnborough.
Three pre-production aircraft were built for trials, and sales and demonstrations.
In 1958, the 33rd aircraft was used as a prototype for the Series 2 with Pratt & Whitney Wasp R-1340 radial engines which had been ordered by Philippine Air Lines. A Series 3 aircraft was also developed to use the improved Alvis Leonides 531 radial engine.
