Defining Style & Prestige

More than half a century has passed since the first Baron 55 rolled off the production line in 1961. A derivative of a derivative, the Baron was an offshoot of the Travel Air twin, which itself was largely a development of the Bonanza. Right from the start, the new Baron was a success. It was exactly as Beechcraft intended: a twin engine version of the hugely popular Bonanza.

Originally outfitted with 260hp Continental IO-470L engines, the model line underwent a few changes and re-designations, from the A55 with a 10" longer fuselage and a second fold-down rear seat, to the slightly longer-nosed B55 which remained in production until 1983 as the most numerous model built. The C55 arrived in 1966 with another increase in fuselage length and equipped with the more powerful 285hp Continental IO-520-C engines, later becoming the D55 in 1968 and the E55 in 1970.

Other variants based on the 55 arose, such as the turbocharged Baron 56TC in 1967, and the larger and more powerful Baron 58 which entered production in 1970. Ultimately, the downturn of the early 1980's signalled the end of production for the Baron 55, but the larger Baron 58 continues to carry on the legacy of style and prestige to this day.

Introducing the Milviz Baron B55

A luxurious classic that began life in an era of premium American brands, the Baron 55 has always given their owners a sense of pride. Our offering is based on a well maintained and updated Model B55, with a richly equipped interior that lends a sense of comfort and immersion.
A Pleasure to Fly

Continuing our reputation for producing quality aircraft, the Milviz B55 combines a highly detailed, carefully creafted model with sumptuous texturing both inside and out to recreate the experience of being in the pilots seat. Smoothly modeled 3d gauges convey a wealth of information and feedback to the pilot, with even the little features present in the form of a working legacy Stormscope radar gauge.

Meanwhile, the refined flight model is designed to replicate the crisp and stable flying characteristics of the B55, ensuring the ability to handle the Baron in close response to real world pilot reports. Performance figures closely follow the actual charts available for the B55, and as a bonus, a replication of the flying characteristics of the more powerful E55 is available as well.

Equipped for Anything

The virtual cockpit on the Milviz B55 represents an aircraft that has been updated to modern standards, while maintaining traces of legacy avionics. Along with the already-mentioned functional Stormscope, the legacy Century IV autopilot is still retained in the panel, although it's owner has long since been forced to disconnect it in favor of a more modern unit in the radio stack.

To that end, we've outfitted the B55 to include our Garmin GNS 530 & 430 units, a Garmin audio panel and Mode-S transponder, and a Bendix-King autopilot.

Third Party Avionics

Although the Milviz B55 includes our own detailed GPS units based on the default simulator data, we do recognize that many of our customers use other popular 3rd party options for replicating the GPS functions. For the B55, we've bundled in compatibility for the most popular avionics addons with multiple configurations available to choose from. Compatible 3rd party avionics include the following:

Flight1 750 GTN
Flight1 650 GTN
Mindstar 530 GNS
Mindstar 430 GNS
Reality XP 530 GNS
Reality XP 430 GNS

Please note that compatibility for the above gauge packages includes support for installation and setup of our product only; use of any of the offered options requires a functional existing installation of the appropriate gauge. In addition, any gauges we list compatibility for are not included with the Milviz B55.

Use of any 3rd party avionics package in any desired simulator is of course also restricted to the availability of the avionics package for that simulator. Please see the respective manufacturers websites for platform compatibility.

I guess I am one of the few but just like Dale White cannot fly this due to the severe pitch upwards. Fighting it all the time keeps this one in the hangar. Milviz forum didn't find a solution. I just bought - 3 years later - the Carenado Pilatus PC-12 and it has the exact same issue, and no one on the Unofficial Carenado Forum (avsim) has the issue. One guy there experienced the same thing and fixed it with a reinstall but that does not solve it for me on either the Baron or PC12. Suspect it has something to do with gauge registration on installation. Shame no one can solve it as they are great products otherwise.

I have never had any problems with trim or any other flight controls, I highly recommend buying this product.
Trim tab in cruise and level flight is set all the way to full down. Outside views show tab in full down position when flying along in cruise and level flight. I have no problems with other add-ons I've purchased. I own about 20 add-on aircraft most purchased from Simmarket. I'm not a rookie Flight Simmer.
I have only had trouble with trim controls on Milviz products. I am troubled by the other reviewers above. Have they actually flown this airplane? I have to bury the down pitch trim to get the plane to fly level. Then I have to pull throttle back to 70% power, or less, to prevent the nose from creeping upward afterwards. It is a pain. It is defective. I haven't found a patch. I shouldn't have to. I didn't buy a Beta aircraft. I purchased a finished product. This product needs fixed. I have had this thing 2 months. I can't stand flying more than 15 minutes at a time. Until they fix this thing, I recommend you skip this one.

Simply one of the very best aircrafts ever made for FS. Visually and in terms of systems this aircraft is very good, but what really impresses me is flight dynamics. Unlike most aircrafts with this one you actually feel like flying it, it is much more dynamic and not unrealistically stable to fly like most addons are, but actually gives you real challenge in bad weather conditions and engine failures especially. Brilliant job!

Fantastic Aircraft!!! I have always looked to Carenado for high quality general aviation aircraft, which they deliver. Now we have another outstanding option for that kind of quality with MilViz. This B-55 not only looks beautiful, with its well worn cockpit, but it flies beautiful.
Switch and knob handling in the virtual cockpit is very user friendly, with a convenient vanishing yoke.
Not being a real world pilot, I would have to say that this Baron flies as close to the real aircraft as is possible in FSX.
This is a real value for the cost. I will be exploring Orbx scenery a lot with it.
*Verified Product User*
All I can say is that this plane rocks! The detail and sound effects are top notch. I look foward to seeing more releases from milviz and in my opinion they are right up there with the other big dogs. Look out carenado there is a new gunslinger in town!
Important: Please note that all of the current default analog and digital avionic equipment installed in our general aviation aircraft and helicopters is based on underlying simulator code and as such, is subject to various deficiencies which are not able to be addressed by our team. This includes our GNS 530 / 430 units, audio panel, transponder, ADF unit, and nav/com radios. Due to the inherent limitations present in the simulator, we are therefore unable to provide fixes or support for any issues related to the operation or functionality of these items at this time.

I love this add-on! The texture quality is nice, it flies really nice and for its price it is amazing! Off-topic but the A220 is so cute!
One of the most iconic propliners ever is brought to life with this near study level aeroplane release from RedWing. If you like the PMDG DC-6, or even just the era of flight, you should really consider adding Connie to your hangar.
I will say that it is an impressive plane, and become one of my favorites on MSFS, I can see that there are still a few kinks. For one, the sound, unfortunately it sometimes clips while the engine is running, that old annoying click sound. Luckily it disappears once you are at cruise altitude. Also with the newest update I got, I notice that I no longer have the "Breitling" livery. I do like the MATS, but I liked Breitling also. Aside from the autopilot crashing at least once, "since the update 1.9.1" There is still much to love about the true grit of this aircraft! Keep working on it!
I have waited for a while to have a good scenery for me to be able to fly back to Myanmar. wish more Asia airport coming soon. Nice job
Hey, thank you very much for this beautiful airport! I am very satisfied, it is very detailed. I didn't notice any frame rate drops.
AI aircraft do not take off, they just taxi to the hold point and bunch up behind each other until eventually they time-out and just disappear. The rendering is old-school, lacking PBR texturing etc. and not up to the standards seen in other recent MSFS addons.
Bigger VRAM consumption than is appropriate on an airport with this size, also an incorrect stand placement in the AFCAD (planes are facing the terminal with their backs, next to each other). Othe-
r than that, very nice rendition of the scenery, and I didn't have to hesitate with buying it!
Love it - gives a reason and a purpose to flying the airliners such as BAE146, 737, A320 etc.
I have never posted a review without first purchasing the product before, but I have to make an exception here, as there are a few "minor" points I see in the preview photos that are making me hesitate from purchasing: -
Image 3: Jetways in foreground disconnected from Concourse A (that's a long jump to board your plane). Also, the A380 maintenance hanger seems to be missing entirely at the rear left. Also, none of the iconic Lufthansa crane logos on the gates. Image 4, 13: there seem to be "a few" buildings missing between Terminal 1 and the Squaire ... Parkhouse P2, the Frankfurt Airport Center, the Frankfurt Airport Marriott, the iconic Sheraton Frankfurt Airport Hotel, and Parkhouse P4, to name just a few. Oh, and the bridge connecting Terminal 1 to the Squaire, but I don't want to nit-pick. Im-
age 5: construction status of Terminal 3 seems to be "not started" Ima-
ge 6: almost all jetways at T2 disconnected from Terminal 2. I could go on, but won't and will instead ask: was the release of this add-on accidental and premature? It seems to be pre-alpha. Apologies for the blunt words, but I'm honestly shocked and saddened. I have been waiting for a good payware EDDF since MSFS came out, and was overjoyed for a short moment when I saw this release ... until I saw the photos. I will keep my eyes out for a very large update, and won't hesitate to purchase if and when it comes, but in this state, the default MSFS version is superior.
The outside model is very nice the cockpit is also nice the veriaty of liveries there is is impresive.
