The classy looking Riviera amphibian is "Seabee" in Italian style... Built by Nardi and Siai-Marchetti, supposedly only 23 were built during the early 1960ies by Siai-Marcheti, the majority of them being sold to America. As every italian design, it is built to go fast. It seats 4 people including the pilot, the reversible propeller gives it superb manouverability in water (and taxi). It is a high-wing anphibian aircraft with double tailfin and pusher propeller. Read notes before flying! (FN333_check.htm, FN333_ref.htm & panel_FN333.htm, plus the document you are currently reading.
This model features advanced flight dynamics, detailed external model, detailed photreal virtual cockpit and virtual cabin with night lighting, custom effects, etc.

Software Requirements

To use this plane you NEED :

Microsoft Flight Simulator X
(This is the FS-X edition, a FS-2004 version is also available)


simply decompress in your FS-X main directory. That's it! Select aircraft, then Nardi, FN-333 Riviera, Done!...before flying, read your reference and checklist in the kneeeboard (without doing so, you may experience problems...)

Known bugs

No bugs known by me

Author: Mario Noriega

FS-2004 vs. FS-X versions:

In Fs-2004, there's no support for retractable wing pontoons, so what extending pontoons does is only adding a little drag... Plus FS-2004 water is known to behave "sticky", meaning you will need lots of engine power just to start moving, and it stops you very quickly when you land on it. In FS-X all this appears to be solved, so not extending pontoons in FS-X will end in ditching one wing into the weater. Plus water is no longer behaving like yoghurt, so you no longer need lots of power to start it moving. the FS-2004 and the FS-X edition will not work properly if installed in the wrong sim. apart from incorrect floating behaviour (FS-9 version under FS-X will not make use of the retractable pontoons function and will always stay afloat erect, but somewhat sunken, while FS-X version in FS-9 may have catastrophic and demential behaviour if landing on water...) some gauges will not work properly.
