First flown in the 1960s, this rugged and versatile twin-engined aircraft has become one of Europe's best selling commercial aircraft - it's been in continuous service ever since as airliner, cargo transport and a light utility aircraft with police and armed forces around the world.

The BN-2 Islander was designed and originally manufactured by Britten-Norman of the United Kingdom. Its simple and rugged manufacture makes for daily operation in and out of rough strips - as short as 300m - in all-weathers, helped by its twin-engined reliability, 30kts cross-wind limit and IFR cockpit fitment.

Developed over two years with the help of real-world Islander pilots and operators, this exciting simulated version is a full-featured FSX release, including technologies such as cockpit self-shadowing, HDR bloom effects, bump mapping and DX10 compatible external and internal visuals.

Over the years the BN-2 has spawned many variants with an almost endless combination of engine and cockpit fitments. This BN-2 simulation is based on a real-world example with assistance from Great Barrier X-Press Airlines, Auckland, New Zealand - fitted with 2x Lycoming O-540 260hp engines. Two exterior model variants for both early and late nose profile (BN-2A and BN-2B) Islanders are included, with related lighting accessories, in a total of 13 paint schemes.
