Cessna 303, also called the Crusader, is a six-place light twin aircraft. First flown on February 14, 1978, it was originally designed as a four-seat twin-engined craft. After market demand for 4-place light twins declined, Cessna redesigned the aircraft as a six-place twin. The new model, designated the T303, began rolling off the production line for delivery in October of 1981. At the time it was the first all-new production twin built by Cessna in over a decade. This aircraft is version 3.1 created with FSDS2.10 by John B. Loney, Jr.

About the design:

I just made a few corrections from my version 2 model for FS9. Having seen the T303 up close and personal now, I corrected the number of passenger doors. From 3 to 1. I gave the T303 a new paint job also. I attempted, but did not succeed in giving the fuselage some "body" thickness. There is a technique to do that, but I haven't mastered it yet. Sorry.

I created my "fake" virtual cockpit/cabin and added a full load of passengers and pilot. The sound is the default baron 58 sound. The panel is the default Baron panel.

Enjoy and Happy landings!

  • Installation:
  • Unzip the file files to a temporary folder.
  • Move the Cessna T303 Crusader v3 folder to the Airplanes folder under the FSX\SimObjects folder.
  • The aircraft uses the default Baron 58 panel. You should be ready to fly.

I do not accept any responsibility for any damage to any system as a result of using this aircraft. To the best of my knowledge, there are no copyright infringements with this aircraft.
