Description

Following on from their award-winning PA-28R Arrow III, Hawk T1/A Advanced Trainer and C152, this highly detailed simulation of the Duchess Model 76 has been developed by Just Flight’s in-house team following comprehensive, hands-on research with two real-life Duchess aircraft, G-BZRT and G-GCCL.

The Duchess is a four-seater, twin-engine T-tail aircraft equipped with a retractable tricycle landing gear, and two 180hp four-cylinder engines fitted with constant-speed propellers. Its IFR-capable avionics suite, excellent handling characteristics and counter-rotating propellers make it an ideal aircraft for multi-engine flight training, and the perfect step up from single-engine aircraft such as the PA28. A cruise speed of 155 knots, a range of 780 nautical miles and a service ceiling of 20,000ft also make it a very capable touring aircraft.

The Duchess is flown all around the world and our add-on reflects that global popularity. In addition to our UK research aircraft, G-BZRT and G-GCCL, this package features liveries from the USA, Canada, France, Australia and Germany.

Model

  • Accurately modelled Duchess, built using real-world aircraft plans and comprehensive photography of the real aircraft
  • Numerous animations including passenger and baggage doors, storm window, sun visors and engine exhausts
  • Ground equipment including chocks and tie-downs
  • HD textures are used to produce the highest possible texture clarity
  • Bump and specular mapping used throughout the aircraft to produce a truly 3D feel
  • Authentic labelling and placards based on those found in the real aircraft

Cockpit
