The Let L-410 Turbolet is a small twin-engine turboprop aircraft. The aircraft has STOL capabilities (Short Take Off and Landing) and can land on gravel runways. This makes it possible to land on almost every runway in the world. It’s one of the three planes to fly to Lukla Airport, the others being the Twin-Otter and the Do 228. It’s one of the most versatile aircraft in the world, serving a wide variety of purposes.
The aircraft started production in the 1960s by Czech manufacturer Let Kunovice. In 2013 UGMK bought the rights to produce the aircraft. In 2015 they launched the newest version: the Let L-410NG. Over 1200 have been produced till this day, with more than 350 still in service.
I think this aircraft would be great in terms of variety. It’s a quirky looking beast and relatively unknown but I think it has the potential to be one of the most fun aircraft in the sim.
Would love to hear your opinion and get your vote!
