The hard working crew at Premier Aircraft Design (PAD) has released another stunning example of their talent, the Shorts SD3-60 regional airliner. Popular on regional flights, the 36-seat aircraft first flew in June 1981. While not the fastest turboprop available, the 360 offered a great value for its price and performance.
PAD’s model is highly detailed with a fully modeled interior cabin, virtual cockpit and engine nacelles that look too real to be in a simulator. The model handles predictably and I found it to be a joy to fly from the virtual cockpit. In addition to the detailed model, a custom soundset brings a new sense of realism to the experience. The model is available for FS9 and FSX from the PAD website.
Look for a more detailed review soon!
