Socata TB10 Tobago

What is the Socata TB10 Tobago?

The Socata TB10 Tobago is a GA aircraft used for flight training, dream flights, and just anything GA flying in general. It is an avlslite thriller to fly, especially in crosswinds. I would know as I did my dream flight in this aircraft, but we didn’t have crosswinds lol.

I think this would be a fantastic edition to IF as more and more GA aircraft are wanted by the community. For all GA lovers out there, this one is for you!

Is it just me, or is this really similar to the Cirrus SR22 we have already? It’s a nice request, but I don’t really think we need something so similar to an existing aircraft, unless there’s something I’m missing which you can show me.

I personally believe that a new GA type aircraft would be good, but make it something completely different to what we already have. A Tucano or Pilatus PC-21 would bridge the gap between planes like this and the fighters, or something like a King Air to fill the space between our existing GA aircraft and light airliners such as the Dash 8.

I see where you are going with this, and you have a point, but despite it’s appearance being similar to the Cirrus, it is a completely different feeling to fly it. You should go on a ride in this in real life and you will understand what I mean. Whether you vote on this or not, I appreciate your feedback.
