Black Square has released a steam gauge overhaul pack for the default Microsoft Flight Simulator Cessna 208B Grand Caravan EX, with a new interior, analogue instrumentation and swappable avionics.
The package includes fully 3D gauges, modelled and coded to match their real-world equipment, with real-world maintenance and installation manuals. The level of detail on the instrument panel and cabin has also been increased compared with the default aircraft.
The package also sports a custom electrical system and cockpit lighting, improved turbine dynamics, crew/passenger oxygen system, dozens of checklists and engine limit excursions that eventually lead to failure.
Radio and navigation systems are available from several eras of the Caravan's history, so users can fly without GPS via an original Bendix KNS-80 RNAV system or with a Garmin GTN 750 (PMS50 or TDS). Other swappable radio equipment includes KX-155 NAV/COM radios, GNS 530, GNS 430, KR 87 ADF, KDI 572 DME, GTX 327 transponder, KAP 140 autopilot and a Bendix RDR1150XL colour weather radar.
Note: This product is an interior and systems overhaul only that makes use of the default MSFS Caravan exterior visual model. Improvements have been made to almost all aspects of the aircraft, except the visual appearance of the exterior.
The package is available on >Just Flight's website for £21.99.
