Since the early 1960's, Fournier aircraft have been known under the RF logo throughout all the places in the world where passion for aviation is at stake.

With the RF series, René Fournier created a new family of aircraft, a new way to fly. Far away from the race for power that was all the rage at the time, he imagined a thin plane, requiring little power. Everyone now recognizes the visionary flash he caught : a few decades later, he would be considered a promoter of green aviation.

Lack of capital, René Fournier did not have the commercial success he deserved. Yet the market that he opened with this new type of machine was there. Other manufacturers with real financial resources took the unscrupulous opportunity to plagiarize this aircraft with long wings that European administration has named, 40 years later, TMG (Touring motor gliders) to distinguish them from true motorized gliders.

And even though the Civil Aviation of the time did not understand the real interest of its formula, imposing inappropriate standards, the flying characteristics of his planes, their low operating maintenance cost and their long life cycle are now universally recognized and are the basis for a well deserved reputation confirmed by very high resale prices on the second hand market.

The RF5B Sperber (Sparrow) is a redesign of the Fournier RF5, a tandem two-seater aircraft designed in 1968 and manufactured under licence by Sportavia.

About 200 aircraft of this type were produced until 1975.

Simply magnificent! What a pleasure to fly to this island! I congratulate the LatinVFR team for such a great work and for so many hours of exciting approaches and departures. I used to fly the PMDG's 747 and I have never experienced FTP issues, but I have a powerful computer. By day and by night, everything looks beautiful and accurate. I only have one question for the LatinVFR guys: what are u waiting for the P3Dv4 version release? Please, don't be so long!
AEROSOFT - DOUGLAS DC-8 P3D4
George Joachim
An excellent by gone era airliner. There is a moderate amount of systems simulation. The sounds are great. The modelling is great and there are numerous liveries. I personally wish for a ground power and air supply truck. The aircraft is stable and is a joy to manually take off and manually land. I also wish for a clickable disappearing yoke because it conceals the DME. Overall a great vintage airliner and if you like these, go get her... I would love to see a B747-SP, which is of the same era.

RICHER SIMULATIONS - CARIBSKY - ANTIGUA 2018 FSX P3D
Jose Otero
The pictures do not do the island any justice. In the sim (day time) it a beautiful tropical scenery with lovely coastlines. I have it installed in p3d v4.2 with payware TAPA and they work and perform well. The developer is very responsive to questions and concerns and it's the primary reason for me being a repeat customer.

BDOAVIATION - LIEGE INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT EBLG FSX P3D
martin standaert
A very nice scenery but needs update sure as it is payware, the scenery still makes use of the old rwy numbers. You can ofcourse do it yourself and use a progy to change the rwy number to 04 and 22. If you use the latest airac that wil be needed or you will not be able to use the ILS with you PMDG etc :) So thats why i only rate this two stars, but is for the rest a five star :)
