In conjunction with World Update XI: Canada, the Microsoft Flight Simulator team has released its latest aircraft in the “Local Legends” series, the Cessna 195 Business liner.
Developed by Cessna, the single-engine 195 Businessliner is a general aviation and utility aircraft powered by a 7-cylinder, air-cooled Jacobs R-755B-2 radial engine that produces up to 275hp. It has a cruising speed of around 170 mph, a range of 633 miles and a ceiling of 18,300ft.
The 195 was introduced in 1947 and was aimed at the business market with seating for five, including the pilot. It quickly earned a reputation for being reliable and efficient.
Cessna produced the Businessliner from 1947 to 1954, although there are many that still fly today. They are highly sought after due to their rugged build, solid performance and look that evokes earlier decades of flight.
The 195 Businessliner for Microsoft Flight Simulator was developed by Carenado. It features ten PBR liveries: eight classic and an Xbox and an Aviator’s Club. It is available on the Microsoft Flight Simulator in-game marketplace for $19.99.
