Adding GA Aircraft Thoughts? 💭

I recently did a quick hop across the English Channel in the P-38 and during that flight I realized a two things. Firstly, I don’t appreciate autopilot nearly as much as I should. Second, the P-38 is the only multi-engine propeller driven aircraft in the sim. This got me thinking. The C172, C208, SR22, XCUB, and TBM930 are great planes to fly in the sim but they all have one engine. I would love to see another multi-engine GA aircraft added to the sim. Now most people would think the Barron 58 or Cessna 310 would be nice to see but I’d personally love to see something a little older. I’d love to see round gauges and round engines! Yes ladies and gentlemen I’m talking about Radials! I’ve always wanted to see an old aircraft added into the sim. Personally, I’d love to see the Lockheed 12a Electra Junior.

Figured It’d be fun to add another tail dragger into the sim too being that the only one is the XCUB. Feel free to add your thoughts down below and I hopefully we can get more GA aircraft ideas and discussions going!
Happy skies

I’d totally rather see the DC-3 :)

Personally I am looking out for the PA28 and PC12 however many of these can be found in #features to vote on if you want to see them in the sim. GA love ✊

I definitely agree that one of these aircraft should be added. My personal favorite is Diamond DA42 TwinStar

I’d love more GA aircraft in the sim, favorite planes to fly hands down. I doubt they’d add more because a lack of people using them and the devs not wanting to which is fair. Lockheed A12 Is cool and all but I’m more Cessna 421 backer. All we can do is keep our fingers crossed though 🤞

I knew someone was gonna bring up a diamond aircraft, they are beautiful planes and would highly expect it to be added

How bout king air 350

Alright. Here’s the thing. Yes, more GA aircraft is a good thing. Yes, I really want more GA aircraft to be added. But instead of creating a topic on how nice it would be to add GA aircraft, why don’t you just vote for them?

Sooooooo, I have taken the liberty of creating a list with a few of the top of GA/prop aircraft features.
Here ya go.

Don’t forget the Sling 2!

Hello!

Thanks for the topic! Love the Electra! As someone who likes to venture out into the mountains and visit small unique airports that airliners can’t get to, I too would like to see some more prop based aircraft. Aircraft such as this allows for greater exploration of the untouched world that we have today. That said, we ask that users create a feature request for such aircraft suggestions to be added. The #features requires users to be a Member user or (Trust Level 2) TL2 in order to post in this category. Seeing that you’re a TL1 Basic user you’re unable to post in that category right now. Don’t fret! If you continue to remain active here, by commenting and liking the posts of others, you’ll gain that privilege over the course of time. Please don’t hesitate to reach out if you have any questions!

Thanks and have a great day!
