SimSolutions Releases DA20-C1 Eclipse for X-Plane 12

SimSolutions has recently released their DA20-C1 Eclipse for X-Plane 12, a two-seat, single-engine airplane manufactured by Diamond.

The Eclipse is the “fancy” variant of the DA20 Katana, a light aircraft introduced by Diamond in 1993, ideal for flight schools and private pilots on a budget. On the other hand, the fancy Eclipse only came to be in 1999, featuring rear windows, better visibility, and a complete set of equipment.

It’s powered by a 125 hp Continental IO-240-B, cruising at up to 138 knots with a range of 629 nautical miles with a 30-minute reserve.
