A Carenado product a day keeps the Airliners away! A welcome addition to every GA pilot in X-Plane, Carenado has released the F33 Bonanza for X-Plane 11 following the (unrelated) release of Stairport/Aerosoft Daytona in the end of this week.

The Beechcraft Bonanza is a GA aircraft by the Beech Aircraft Corporation. Introduced in 1947, the Bonanza enjoys consistent demand and popularity, having been in continuous production longer than any other airplane in history. More than 17,000 Bonanzas of all variants have been built, both in conventional and V tail configurations.

Masters of their craft, Carenado does not dissapoint in the visuals department, and with the latest X-Plane 11 releases, behavioural characteristics were detailed and improved (engine model, flightmodel, and ground handling). Here is the full feature list:


  • Specially designed engine dynamics for XP11.
  • Flight physics optimized for XP11 standards.
  • Ground handling adapted for XP11 ground physics.
  • Physically Based Rendering materials and textures throughout.
  • PBR materials authored with industry-standard software used by the film and gaming industries.
  • X-Plane GNS430 (FPS friendly)
  • Support for RealityXP's GTN750* (integrated into 3D cockpit, when available).
  • Goodway Compatible.
  • Realistic behavior compared to the real airplane.
  • Realistic weight and balance.
  • Tested by several pilots for maximum accuracy.

*RealityXP GTN 750 is sold separately

The F33 Bonanza is priced at $27 ($26.95)
