BN-2 Islander for X-Plane

Nimbus Simulation Studios has announced the BN-2 Islander is now available for X-Plane 11.

The British light utility and commuter transport is one of the best-selling commercial aircraft types produced in Europe. Although designed in the 1960s, over 750 are still in service with commercial operators around the world.

The package by Nimbus features a detailed 3D model with eight liveries with 4K textures, PBR (Physically Based Rendering) effects and a custom 3D sound system.

Up front, the cockpit comes with animated switches, rattling and vibrations. It features accurate handling and flight characteristics based on real performance charts.

Other highlights include night lighting, visual ice build-up effects and VR (Virtual Reality) compatibility (includes yoke manipulator). A configuration tool can be used for managing maintenance, weight and balance, doors and accessories, control position and performance charts.
