The history of the L-4 is best summed up by Ken Wakefield, author of "The Fighting Grasshoppers" and "Lightplanes at War", who graciously contributed the following overview of this aircraft:

"The Piper L-4 Grasshopper of WW2 was the military version of the highly popular pre-war J3 Cub, by which name it was more widely known to service personnel. Of the 5,500 L-4 variants produced between 1942 and 1945, some went to liaison squadrons and of the USAAF, but the vast majority went to US Army Ground Forces, for use as Air Observation Posts (Air OPs) with the Field Artillery. In both air and ground forces, the L-4 was also used as a flying Jeep, among other things carrying priority mail and personnel between HQs and command posts. Its Continental engine produced only 65hp, yet the L-4's excellent short field performance enabled it to operate from the smallest of improvised airstrips, including roads, adjacent to command posts.

Unlike most other combat aircraft, the L-4 was unarmed and unarmoured. It was one of the smallest aircraft of WW2 and, with a cruising speed of only 75 mph, it was the slowest. Nevertheless, it has been claimed that a single L-4, directing the fire power of an entire Division, could bring a greater weight of explosives to bear on a target then any other aircraft of that period. With the exception of the atomic bomb carrying B-29 Superfortress, no other single aircraft had the destructive capability of the diminutive L-4. It was most widely used in Europe, where more than 2,700 served with the Field Artillery, and of these nearly 900 were lost through enemy action or in accidents. Of those that survived the war, about 150 were shipped back to the US, most of the remainder eventually being sold to civilian purchasers in Britain, France, Switzerland, Denmark and elsewhere in Europe. More than 60 years on many of these are still flying with, in recent years, an increasing number being restored to their original military configuration and markings. A truly remarkable 'warbird', long to be remembered."

So successful was the L-4 that it's military use continued on through to the Korean War, and as recently as Vietnam. Today, hundreds still fly on as civilian light aircraft, some as meticulously restored military aircraft and others in colourful civilian schemes. 

We hope you enjoy flying this faithful rendition of history.

BIJAN HABASHI - 4 SEASON PACK V6.13 -MSFS
Matthew
Absoutly stunning makes the immersion second to none. All the projects Bijan has adds new layers to an already great sim and make it so much more real. Thanks. Go get this its a must
MK-STUDIOS - PONTA DELGADA MSFS
Chris
Great mesh and accurate landmarks / terrain. Only missing moving road vehicles on highway and missing ramp/stairs for boarding. fuel truck as well. besides that, its beautiful. great work.
TABURET - CHINA ROADS 1.3 MSFS

Really brings the poor photogrammetry around China to life! Hoping the developer has plans for Africa as well
AEROSOFT - AIRPORT LONDON HEATHROW X-PLANE 11
Charlie
This scenery is visually stunning. Highly accurate and immersive. H-
owever, it lacks greatly with its lack of moving air-bridges. The air-bridges featured appear to be static objects and therefore cannot be commanded by AutoGate or SAM, which - for me - drastically lets it down. Whilst it's nice to park at and operate out of, the lack of moving air-bridges really knocks the whole experience down a couple of notches. I wouldn't recommend avoiding it on this basis alone, as despite this it's by far and away the best representation of EGLL available. However, it could be vastly improved by the simple addition of moving air-bridges, and as such your experience will be some-what ill-represented due to this knock in immersion.
FLYTAMPA - COPENHAGEN V.2 P3D4-5
Marcus
Once again flytampa has done an amazing job. I work as a ground handler in Copenhagen Airport and the attention to detail is stunning. PBR looks amazing and performance is good but on the heavier side. It's missing some of the new E stands however they were build in 2019, so hopefully it will be included in an upcoming update. Can totally recommend!
BRSIMDESIGNS - DEBONAIR 35 - MSFS
James
I'm bumping my review from 3 to 4 stars. The latest update just fixed a huge number of day 1 issues, thanks so much for that BRsimDEsigns! -
Edited review: The Debonair modeled is the 35-E33, which was actually a Bonanza as far as I understand (the A33-C33 were Debonairs, there was no D33 and the E33 switched to the Bonanza name.) The Debonair was essentially a Bonanza with a straight tail at a time when the V-tail 35 was popular. Regardless, for all intents and purposes this is an old school Bonanza. Kee-
nly, BRSim understood the Debonair's cargo potential. From the 35-33 supplement: "Careful workmanship and inspection employed in airframe construction assure that structural components will withstand flight loads in excess of FAA requirements for a Utility Category airplane at the certified maximum gross weight of 3050 pounds." Well represented by a dynamic cargo loading animation (move the payload slider to see boxes and suitcases come and go), this is nice choice for GA cargo operations in your preferred mission software. Af-
ter the first update by BRsimDesign, I strongly recommend this addon. The only things I'm really looking for are sound attenuation of the engines and an option to remove the tip tanks potentially to make the winglets more viable. It's very close to being a 5 star addon at this point. Pros:-
- It flies nicely, no issue with the aerodynamics. -
- Model and texture quality is very good overall. - Animations are mostly excellent. - Opening doors (2) and window (1). - The dynamic cargo loading is really cool. - Fuel transfer system works well. - Everything is truly clickable. - Working circuit breakers. - Nice selection of 8 liveries to start with, not sure if there's a paint kit though. - Swappable electronic attitude indicator. - Toggleable static elements are modeled. - No issues encountered with any navigation equipment. C-
ons: - The sounds are not original from what I understand. - No sound attenuation for the engines when opening doors/windows. -
- Engine sounds are too a bit too quiet still. - Winglets on tip tanks doesn't make sense + No option to remove tip tanks. - I had to use 'b' to recalibrate the altimeter because when doing it using the mouse-wheel it had a tendency to fully reset itself, this happened several times. The mouse-wheel can be used to increment it, but not decrement, that causes the reset for me. - The avionics switch doesn't seem to come on when I use the Honeycomb Alpha (but the avionics themselves do so it's not a huge deal.)

Отличный симулятор King Air 350i. Симуляция proline 21, отказы, системы. И двигатели ремонтировать после каждого полета не придется (как тут пишет товарищ), если соблюдать режимы. Прежде чем ставить 3, надо POH сначала почитать. Одно-
значно стоит своих денег.
