HS 748 Propliner for FSX and P3D includes the Series 2A variant in 16 liveries. The detailed virtual cockpit features 3D instruments, a comprehensive avionics suite including a GNS 430 and a realistic, easy-to-use autopilot with pitch and bank hold.

In the late 1950s, the search was already on for a worthwhile replacement for the Douglas DC-3; with the introduction of the turboprop engine, the venerable ‘Dakota’ was no longer economically viable in the eyes of many short-haul operators.

The Vickers Viscount was already performing well in the short-haul market and had attracted buyers from all over the world, and the Fokker F-27 ‘Friendship’ was a proven twin-engine design with a high-wing configuration. Avro, the original company responsible for the development of the 748, had indications from potential customers that a sturdier, low-wing concept would be more acceptable, especially for rugged conditions. Avro planned the 748 as a low-wing, high-lift design with the same Rolls-Royce Dart engines as the Fokker, mounted in self-contained pod-like nacelle structures which also carried extremely strong landing gear. Ground clearance was excellent and the aircraft was proven to be able to haul payloads in excess of 10,000lb, operating out of remote short-strip airfields with little or no support services.

The first 748 flew on the 24th June 1960 and, as Avro became engulfed in the Hawker Siddeley Group, the Series 1 aircraft became known as the HS 748. The Series 2A (the subject of this simulation) was given more powerful RR Darts and an optional large forward cargo door.

By the time the last 748 rolled off the production line, 380 airframes had been constructed. So popular was the success of the design in STOL and short-haul operations that many are still flying around the world today.

Customer Reviews
VIRTAVIA - F-104 STARFIGHTER FSX STEAM EDITION DLC
David
Seems like there should be a few more liveries for this? What you do get hear is nice enough, but just not very many. Also there is a issue with the texture files causing blacked out cockpits and broken shadowing around the exterior. Just ugly as can be. The issues required me to contact Virtavia Who quickly gave me a very easy fix and totally resolved the issue. Such good customer service.
LIONHEART - ROBIN DR400/180 FSX P3D
David
The Robin is a unique plane and for some reason difficult to locate a solid sim representation. I chose this one in a whim and so far feel pretty good about it. It’s a really nice plane for touring under 10,000 feet. Has a fair amount of power for short flights with lesser fuel and perform well even loaded up. There’s a nice selection of liveries included. The interior looks like any Robin I’ve ever seen and is detailed nicely. It sounds right and flies right. Lionheart always offers very pretty planes and this is slightly less eye popping, but the Robin isn’t really eye popping anyway. It’s a bird that may need some acquired taste. For the money it’s a solid purchase and I’m not finding any problems with it after my first 4 hours of flying.
FLYSIMWARE - SUPER HUEY X FSX P3D
David
I really want to rate this higher but there’s too many significant bugs holding it back. First the models are fantastic and fly realistically. Easy to hover and control. Nicely detailed in and out. Few actual functioning switches, knobs and dials. Just the essentials work mostly. The most glaring drawback is that FSX SE version does not have any audio! Yes I mean a totally silent engine. However the developer web sight has a solution that I found to be really quite simple. Basically you just alias sound from another aircraft, I used the Augusta 101 helicopter. It’s not quite the right sound at all, but It’ll do for now. Next issue is that the variant with the rescue basket has a problem. The basket can be loaded and dumped of its human cargo but it only move half way out from the chopper and does not raise or lower at all. The fire tank equipped model doesn’t show the dumping of water effects. The copilot altimeter doesn’t work. I can forgive the little things but the nonfunctional rescue basket is a big disappointment. So really this is a mediocre Huey and I only give it 3 stars because I am a big fan of this chopper and the modeling is better than good. If you’re a fan of the Huey like me and can forgive those issues then consider buying but ONLY on sale. No way it’s worth full price as is.
VIRTAVIA - C-17A GLOBEMASTER III FSX STEAM EDITION DLC
David
Yes! Totally worth adding. Basically .50 cents per livery and they look very good.
VIRTAVIA - C-17A GLOBEMASTER III FSX STEAM EDITION
David
Virtavia makes pretty cheap but often fun and serviceable add on planes, so you should temper your expectations. This C17 is actually better than most of their offerings. It’s not a pro simulation by any means, but it is a good looking representation of this iconic beast. I see the McChord version ( available by buying the C17 DLC) fly overhead frequently, some times appearing to do circuits. That said the details are pretty spot on. The roaring engines when heard from the outside is a little understated here though, but still a quality sound. All doors open by the ramp requires you map the wing fold action to a key, it’s easy to do but not obvious to first few glances. If you don’t map the wing fold to a key then the ramp will only open half way, or such as it would when dumping cargo or soldiers. Once mapped (only works on the ground) pushing that assigned key will further extend the ramp to fully deployed and touching the ground. Just remember use regular door open ( Shift+E+2) first. For the money you can’t go wrong and buying the add on DLC liveries will be something worth getting as well. Another note, Virtavia has excellent and speedy customer service. Just be polite and provide brief specific details like you would anywhere and they will get back to you lickity split. They have helped me solve every issue I’ve ever had with very simple and clear instructions. Can’t say the same for certain other developers who put their ego ahead of service and facts.
FSXCENERY - CYQR REGINA INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT FSX P3D
Tom
I've never had the pleasure of visiting Regina, but FSXcenery seems to be paying more attention to detail than in many of their past products. Although, I can't vouch for the accuracy of the layout the product quality seems to be improving with each release. Good job Fernando and company, keep it up friends!
PROTERRAIN - COLOMBO INTL. AIRPORT P3D FSX
Imal
Tried PT Colombo Intl. Airport scenery in P3D4, & found working fine. No noticeable frames effect. Runway details are accurate to show even faded old markings. SLAF museum a/c can be seen, when using eastern taxiway. Night time dynamic lighting is good.  Big thank you to the developer for the details, & scenery is highly recommended for SL aviation fans. Few things to consider in the next update: 1. Scenery is matching Google maps details 100%, but limited to about 2nm radius from runway.  This is rather too limited for a VFR circuit, even for a small Cessna a/c. Increase the scenery to include at least 5nm 22 approach path, & up to the shoreline in 04. 2. Include few parked a/c on the aprons & inside hangars. 3. Perimeter road is hardly visible, though vehicles can be seen.  4. Better to identify the scenery as 'Colombo Ratmalana Airport', to avoid confusing with VCBI. If southern ground scenery is extended up to VCCN, scenery will be really outstanding.
