TorqueSim Releases BN-2 Islander on X-Plane 11

Torque Sim Bn 1 Islander (6)

After announcing that their BN-2 Islander would release this week, TorqueSim has done good on their word and released the aircraft for X-Plane 11. The twin-engine jet is flown throughout the world today, despite being originally designed during the 1960s. The versatile design of the aircraft means it can take off and land at just about any location in the world. The model simulated is the BN-2B-26, equipped with 2 Lycoming O-540 engines.

As you would expect from TorqueSim, the aircraft will feature a highly-detailed 3D model, including fully 3D cockpit and PBR 4K textures. Furthermore, custom systems such as an electric system, fuel manager and lighting are also included. Various avionics such as the KFC225 Autopilot and also the KR87 ADF will also be included giving pilots plenty of systems to learn and play with. The aircraft is also compatible with the latest version of X-Plane, which means it is ready for Vulcan/Metal with no issues.

You can buy it now from X-Aviation for $39.95 for both Windows and Mac (but no Linux).

It’s worth noting that Nimbus Simulations Studios also announced they are working also on a BN-2 Islander for X-Plane 11.
