PILOT’S Releases Dash 7 for MSFS

PILOT'S has recently released their rendition of the de Havilland Canada Dash 7 for Microsoft Flight Simulator, a turboprop-powered regional airliner with STOL Capabilities introduced in 1978.

First flown in 1975, the Dash 7 is a "Twin Otter but larger and with four engines," with oversized fan blades that would rotate at a slower speed to emit as little noise as possible, complying with the noise restrictions that were starting to creep in. It could carry up to 50 passengers, with a service ceiling of 21,000 feet and 690 nautical miles of range, all powered by four Pratt & Whitney Canada PT6A-50 turboprop engines, with 1,120 hp each.

As of July 2018, 17 Dash 7s were still flying worldwide with six different operators. However, the list of former operators is substantial: sixty civilian and three military operators.

The add-on features 4K textures, authentic and realistic gauges, full TDS GTN750xi support (and default GNS 530), nine liveries, authentic color matching, and more.

It's available on their website for roughly $21.13.
