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:

MFSG - HALIFAX STANFIELD INTL AIRPORT CYHZ 2020 FSX P3D FS2004
Fulvio
Another great product, and a very good location choice. As for the former MFSG airports, great idea tolet the user choose if exclude the sorrounding photoscenery, since people like me is used to fly with ORBX Open_LC add-ons.
GODZONE VF - REAL NEW ZEALAND NZCH/CHRISTCHURCH P3D

Amazing job from Godzone VF! This scenery looks great and the performance is also good. A must have scenery for everyone who loves to fly to New Zealand.
RFSCENERYBUILDING - LIPZ VENICE MARCO POLO AIRPORT FSX P3D
Anthony
Nice airport but like all RF Scenery they are not in the same league as Orbx quality so l can’t give them a 5/5. They are really good and do deserve a 4/5.

Been using this several years. Great program with no complaints!
LIONHEART CREATIONS - LIONHEART - DIAMOND STAR DA40 XLS FSX P3D

Just got my PPL in a DA-40. Does not look, feel, or sound like the real aircraft. No left turning tendency on takeoff. Doesn’t float on the landings. Horrible G1000 functionality. Just as good as the Abacus A380.

Well it’s so nice to have another great Canadian airport especially from the east coast of Canada. This airport is done very well and I’m very pleased. Well done team!

PILOT EXPERIENCE SIM - PESIM BORDEAUX MERIGNAC LFBD P3D4 P3D5
Clay
There are some pleasant details compared to default but also some cartoonish elements that detract from the overall airport. It's not very well optimized for P3D v5. Flicker, flicker, flicker. You get the feeling this developer has a lot to learn still. Also, they misunderstand the LM install recommendations and force it to your C:\ drive. Very inconsiderate. But hey, it's better than default visually it just feels so unstable. Hopefully these guys will get better.
FLYSIMWARE - FALCON 50 FSX P3D
Stefan
A great addon! Nice model with some animations and a detailed interior, excellent hand flying, an brief yet complete documentation, an interactive load manager and the choice between a rather analogue cockpit and the possibility to retrofit it with a more advanced GPS device like the GTN 750 and the REX weather radar (both to be purchased separately-not included!)! -
I love this bird!
JUSTFLIGHT - A318 JETLINER

I have owned this for a year or two now, it sits in the LITE area of complexity. Wh-
ich means since you are alone in the cockpit work load is reduced by half, which in a way makes it feel even more realist (more time to focus on the flying). It has a basic FMC which operates alone quite well, you can load saved flight plans into, also it will plan major routes automatically and also has a direct to function. Overall it is a slimmed down FMC which works well without the need for external plugins (FSUIPC). Th-
e 3D model is up there with the best, the cockpit is a custom made on, it is a little basic and similar to the Default A321. Flight model is pretty good, it is a little underpowered, and has a tendency to want to "nose down" during decent but over all its really good. (I have actually made a few tweaks to the config to get it to make real world performance and its a dream to fly now). There is NO FLY BY WIRE though, but for this price you cant complain, and performance and framerates are so high that you can forgive this. These days it's the only airliner I fly! And, set up correctly she will fly from Shannon to New York just like the real aircraft can. I found using the sound from the Aerosoft A319 suits this aircraft the best but the default sound is also very good. Overal-
l a lovely aircraft and great fun to fly.
