What’s it like the second time around?
The Lancair Legacy is an aircraft I knew very little about before starting this review. It’s a two-seat, 400bhp, 300kt speed machine. Developed from its predecessor the Lancair 320, the Legacy certainly looks sexy with its sleek, almost flattened, design that most definitely improves aerodynamics and its retractable landing gear that just flattens the whole profile allowing it to slip through the air with minimal drag. RealAir took on the challenge of creating this aircraft ‘inside’ the sim back in 2012. Version 1 was amazing, but now it’s back with the new and improved Version 2.
On purchasing the aircraft from the Real Air Simulations’ store, there are two options - FSX and Prepar3D. I chose Prepar3D and then proceeded with the purchase and download. Installation is simple and quick and takes a matter of minutes to complete. Once installed I did what most people do with their new aircraft: jump into the sim and fly around really fast like a maniac only to continually crash a lot… maybe that’s just me?
