Apoligies if this is a duplicate, I searched and didn’t find anything.

The Beechcraft Baron is a light, twin-engined piston aircraft developed by Beechcraft. The Baron is a variant of the Travel Air, and was introduced in 1961. Over 6,691 aircraft have been built since the model was introduced, and production is still ongoing. Barons come in three basic types: the Baron 55 (short body), Baron 56 (short body) and Baron 58 (long body), with several sub-variants each. This feature request is for the Baron 58.
Introduced for the model year 1969, the larger, more powerful Baron 58 was developed from the Baron 55, introducing club seating, double aft baggage doors, and new gross weight of 5,400 lbs. Depending on the variant, the Baron 58 is fitted with either the Continental IO-520 or IO-550 300-hp engine. I would love to see this beautiful general aviation aircraft in Infinite Flight.

Man, they’re adding TBM as the greatest affection, and I’m looking forward to downloading it; but after, well the Devs could look at Baron 58 and add it to the IF. This aircraft is an aviation classic, widely used here, and is a beautiful one from a GA.

A really great choice for a feature request! Throws me back to the days when I usto play FSX and messed around flying this plane VFR and not knowing what I was doing. It would be nice to do the same on Infinite Flight flying VFR 🙂

Versions with G1000 and gauges panels would be good as on the C172 rework
