First flown in the 1960s, this rugged and versatile twin-engined aircraft has been in continuous service ever since as airliner, cargo transport and light utility with police and armed forces around the world.

No wonder this British marvel has become one of Europe's best selling commercial aircraft!

Two engines... Nine passengers... One pilot!

The BN-2 Islander is a British light utility aircraft, mainline airliner and cargo aircraft designed and originally manufactured by Britten-Norman of the United Kingdom. The Islander is one of the best-selling commercial aircraft types produced in Europe and although designed in the 1960s, over 750 are still in service with some 50 commercial operators around the world. The aircraft is also used by the Army and Police forces in the United Kingdom and is a popular light transport with over 30 military aviation operators.

The Islander's simple and rugged manufacture makes for daily operation in and out of rough grass and unprepared strips - as short as 300m - in all-weathers. Indeed, its twin-engined reliability, 30kts cross-wind limit and IFR cockpit fitment has seen the Islander operate the only regular daily transport in the Scottish Western Isles in weather that even has the local sheep running for cover.

Developed over two years with the help of real-world Islander pilots and operators, this exciting simulated version is a full-featured FSX release, including technologies such as cockpit self-shadowing, HDR bloom effects, and bump mapping and DX10 compatible external and internal visuals.

Whether you want to operate simulated inter-island transport, feeder airliner flights or just simply have fun in this all-purpose aircraft, the Islander is certain to put a smile on your face.

Short field performance - Big on features

Over the years, the BN-2 has spawned many variants with an almost endless combination of engine and cockpit fitments.

This BN-2 simulation is extensively based a real world example with assistance from Great Barrier X-Press Airlines, Auckland, New Zealand - fitted with 2x Lycoming O-540 260hp engines.

We've included two exterior model variants for both early and late nose profile (BN-2A and BN-2B) Islanders, with related lighting accessories - all beautifully represented with a total of 13 paint-schemes:

VIRTUALCOL - EMBRAER 170/175 SERIES FOR MSFS
sven
bought this aircraft because i wanted a ERJ175 to fly, the aircraft has both pros and cons. lets start off with the pros, 1. the exterior model is detailed fairly, its not top quality but good for the price you pay. 2. the cockpit is laid out close to that of a real ERJ so that gains it some points, however those are the only pros i could find. now onto the cons, 1. Nose gear clips ground when breaking. 2.the flight dynamics are not very good at all, feels like I'm flying a paper airplane. 3.engine sounds are ok but there is not much change on the exterior sounds between throttle positions. 4.either reverse works or it does not. 5.FMC displays A320 as aircraft in use. those are the major things i could see after flying around for 30 min. if they improved the sound, flight dynamics and ground clipping it would actually be an alright aircraft!

The flight dynamics are very unrealistic and the plane is very hard to control (it should not be). The autopilot does not work, the VS mode does not work in a turn, won't hold altitude and starts descending. If you bring up the flaps the AP won't catch the airplane from nose diving. The trim is strange, the flaps have too much lift and lift the nose. The plane is not stable on an ILS approach, keeps wondering back and fourth and if you add flaps to quickly it will start climbing out of the glide slope. The AP does not deal well with the speed brakes being deployed during decent. The displays are all unrealistic, don't look like the real jet, no vertical profile in the MFD. No weather, No TCAS. No thrust reversers, no animation for them, no indication. The E170/E175 does have thrust reversers IRL. Clouds cause haze in the cockpit. I mean there is so much to list even beyond known quality issues. This effort is not as good as their P3d/FSX version. That version actually flew and had fairly accurate systems despite not being high quality.

aircraft is unflyable, textures look bad. plenty of other aircraft to choose on simmarket that are better than this one.

WOW and I've not even gotten into it or the spray yet. I BUY a lot of planes for MSFT and this one is a great little model. Interiors great - flies super well, excellent views... many well done camera angles. Ig it disapoints later I'll change review. In first 15 minutes... WOW

I bought this on the MSFS Marketplace and I consider it to be very well made. Flies great and the sound is awesome. It comes with an integrated checklist (albeit not automatable, although starting the plane is simple enough, tbh) and even has historic pilot avatars and the regular ones from MSFS to choose from. The plane is a lot of fun, no regrets to buy this. It is also a total bargain.

I truthfully have no complaints. -
I had low expectations since many kept saying this was bad. However, I was pleasantly surprised! The exterior is beautiful. What else can I say? The cockpit looked nice, maybe not study level. If you don't like how it flies and already purchased it, try a flight improvement mod! It definitely helped me out! Happy flying!

It's a great scenery and I would give it a 4.5 star rating. This is available since 2016 and still has not a SODE gateways! this put this scenery a way back compared to other sceneries of similar price range. I give it 3 out of five stars.

Just an Update for my review. i've been contacted by Virtualcol, and they explaind the importance of activating the AP exactly as in the Tutorial, and it workes much better now.thnx for the fast response. to sum it up: speed MUST be inputed for flight phase in the FMS BEFORE activating AP, Select the desired ALT without pressing the ALT hold, engage the VS and select, engage FMC button (NOT NAV) and only then activate the AP. still can't quite figure out speed selection logic, and ILS APP, but maybe it's me. anyways TUTORIALS are a must to fly this one, can't just jump in! i've had some more enjoyable flights now, hope some flightmodel improovments will be done to make more realistic. hop-
e this helps, have fun!

Producto bastante mediocre. Copia paneles de otros aviones y tiene bastantes fallos. Las texturas externas son un poco más pasables. No es un trabajo profesional. No lo recomiendo en absoluto.
