A new product has suddenly been released by Carenado: a rendition of the King Air C90GTx.

The aircraft is a derivative of many earlier models of the King Air, but notable inclusions are a glass cockpit, winglets, and increased maximum takeoff weight.

X-Plane 11 itself has a King Air C90B as a default aircraft, and Carenado released a version of the same aircraft in 2017.

According to the product page of the new aircraft, the aircraft has the following special features:

  • Full interior and exterior PBR.
  • 3D interior and exterior with MANY details.
  • Rain effect support* (dynamic drops movements).
  • Customized FMOD sounds.
  • Carenado Proline 21

In addition, standard features include:

  • Full VR compatible
  • Specially designed engine dynamics for XP11.
  • Flight physics optimized for XP11 standards.
  • Physically Based Rendering materials and textures throughout.
  • PBR materials authored with industry-standard software used by the film and gaming industries.
  • Realistic behavior compared to the real airplane. Realistic weight and balance. Tested by several pilots for maximum accuracy.

An array of PDF documents with procedures, tables, and more are included in the download.

The aircraft is available for US $37.95 through Carenado's website.

In December of last year, Thranda Design announced they parted ways with the developer, as "production wasn't going fast enough for Carenado."

The developer is available to follow through Facebook and Twitter.
