Black Square’s Analog Baron brings you a completely new interior, panel and systems with the default MSFS G58 Baron exterior model, including added winglets. This product contains both normally aspirated (B58), and pressurised (B58P) aircraft with an advanced reciprocating engine simulation, and features analogue instrumentation, swappable radio configurations and an overhauled electrical system with every circuit breaker, meter, switch and knob functioning.

Black Square’s failure system allows for persistent wear, MTBF and scheduled failures for nearly every component in the aircraft, many with multiple different failure modes. The fully 3D gauges are modelled and coded to meticulously match their real-world counterparts, with reference to real-world manuals. No piece of equipment appears in a Black Square aircraft without a real-world unit as reference.

Radio navigation systems are available from several eras of the Baron’s history, so users can fly without GPS via a Bendix KNS-81 RNAV system or with the convenience of a Garmin GTN 750 (PMS50 or TDS). Other radio equipment includes KX-155 NAV/COM radios, GNS 530, GNS 430, KR 87 ADF, KDI 572 DME, GTX 327 transponder, KFC 150 autopilot and a Bendix RDR1150XL colour weather radar.

A 100-page manual provides instruction on all equipment and 42 in-game checklists with control/instrument highlighting are included for normal and emergency procedures.

Primarily analogue instrumentation augmented with modern radio navigation equipment is still the most common aircraft panel configuration in the world. Challenge your piloting skills by flying IFR to minimums with a fully analogue panel and no GPS. You’ll be amazed at the level of skill and proficiency you can achieve to conquer such adversity and how it will translate to all your other flying. You also may find the analogue instrumentation much easier to read with the limited number of pixels available on a computer monitor, and even more so in VR.

NOTE: This product is an INTERIOR AND SYSTEMS OVERHAUL ONLY that makes use of the default MSFS Baron exterior visual model and requires the DELUXE or PREMIUM DELUXE version of MSFS to be installed. Improvements have been made to almost all aspects of the aircraft, except the exterior. All default Baron liveries are compatible with this product.

For more information on this product’s capabilities and a list of all included avionics and equipment, see the Detailed Description below and the extensive PDF operating manual.



Black Square’s overhauled cockpits with analogue instrumentation go far beyond a visual upgrade. Included, you will find a complete redesign of all aircraft systems to more closely match the real aircraft, with a focus on electrical systems. Also included are more accurate weight and balance, lighting systems, flight dynamics and ground handling. Enjoy features such as:

  • Reciprocating engine simulation with fouling, vapour lock, flooding and backfires
  • The most realistic turbocharger simulation in Microsoft Flight Simulator to date
  • Turbocharger-driven pressurisation and door seal system. Door seals reduce cabin noise.
  • Completely interactable electrical system with four buses and 85 circuits
  • Engine leaning optimisation 'Lean Find' on EDM-760 engine monitor, and status alarms
  • Engine limit excursions that decrease engine health and will eventually lead to failure
  • Selective state saving for radio selection, radio frequency memory, cabin aesthetics etc.
  • 100+ system failures, set via in-cockpit interface. Either random, based on settable MTBF, or schedulable, with optional time acceleration.
  • Cabin environmental control system for heating, air conditioning, ventilation and ram air cooling. Cool things off by opening a window or watch the aircraft heat up in the sun.
  • Crew/passenger oxygen system that depletes according to pressure altitude, passenger occupancy and their weight.
  • Working carbon monoxide detector
  • Mathematically accurate VOR & ADF signal attenuation and noise, and remote compass gyro slaving
  • Working ice protection systems, optional winglets and tip tank transfer pumps


Over 500 checklist items are provided for 40+ Normal, Abnormal, and Emergency procedures in textual form in the manual and in-game, using the MSFS native checklist system with control and instrument highlighting. If it’s in the checklist, it’s settable in the aircraft!


Black Square’s Analog Baron features the default MSFS-native (Wwise) 3D G58 Baron sound package, with new custom sounds added for warnings, environmental control systems, electronics, turbocharger, engine cooling and more. The default sounds have been carefully assigned to all interactable cockpit elements for an authentic 3D spatial experience.

  • Rich audio for every switch, button, lever and electrical system
  • Detailed physics-based effects on engine and wind noise
  • Accurately positioned 3D sound sources (best enjoyed in VR!)


  • Accurately modelled B58 and B58P Baron interior ONLY (uses default exterior model), created from hundreds of reference photos and technical documentation
  • 100% MSFS native animation code for the smoothest animations and cockpit interactions using either legacy or new cockpit interaction modes
  • PBR (Physically Based Rendering) materials with real-time environment reflections for superb quality and realism, and vector-graphic-like decal quality
  • Detailed normal mapping for leather, fabric, plastic, stitches, scratches, carpet and tooling marks, resulting in a texture resolution of 10,000 pixels per square inch (90.0kB)


  • Greatly enhanced instrument panel detail compared to default aircraft, with every label and marking in its place. If it appears in the real aircraft, you can interact with it!
  • Custom-coded steam gauges with low-pass filtering, needle bounce and physics provide ultra-realistic and silky smooth animations like you’ve never seen before.
  • Carefully modelled components match the depth and character of the real instrumentation, based on reference photos, schematics and real-world measurements. Unlike other expensive Flight Sim aircraft, every piece of equipment that appears in a Black Square aircraft is modelled after a real piece of aircraft equipment and will behave the same way in its primary functionality.
  • Every knob, switch and button is interactable and implemented, along with its respective electrical circuitry. Turn systems on and off or pull circuit breakers to see the impact it has on your generators and battery via the analogue meters. Automatic standby generators and standby gyros are also simulated. Many pieces of equipment respond correctly to electrical configurations with warning messages and diagnostic codes.
  • Fully 3D cockpit lighting technology for every gauge and panel, with ambient bounce lighting for a more immersive night-time experience that won’t leave you fumbling around in unrealistically dark spots
  • 4096x4096 (4K) PBR textures on cockpit and panel for crisp instrumentation. Even see the fingerprints on instrument glass!
  • Hideable yokes, adjustable sun visors and other cockpit aesthetics

Flight Dynamics

The Analog Baron features an improved flight model compared to the default Baron, with tweaks based on operator feedback and real flight data. Drag varies with cowl flap setting and air conditioning condenser scoop position. Engine damage and fouling produces a rough running engine and decreased performance.

PC Pilot Platinum Award"The level of interior and systems modelling is made to an excellent standard and, combined with a detailed failure model, it easily rivals the most complex aircraft currently available for the Microsoft Flight Simulator platform. If you want to get as close as you can to flying a piston twin on your desktop, this one is for you."

"Black Square's Analog Baron is an innovative package that captures the challenges of flying  piston twins perfectly. The combination of sound systems modelling and authentic flight dynamics makes it one of the more comprehensive renditions of a general aviation aircraft for Microsoft Flight Simulator currently available."

PC Pilot (Platinum Award, 96/100)

System Requirements:

  • DELUXE or PREMIUM DELUXE edition of Microsoft Flight Simulator
NB: This add-on does NOT work with the Standard edition of Microsoft Flight Simulator (as the G58 Baron is not included in that version of MSFS).
