Iris and the G109B!

FSX/P3D. We'll it's Monday morning and time to kick off a new week! Whilst we've been sleeping, Iris has been busy. This time it's the Grob G109B. If I can think correctly, this aircraft is actually a glider and the engine is only used to keep it in the air should you loose airspeed. But I could be way wrong. It looks quite nice!

Its called a Vigilant - or grob 109-b as you mentioned. I used to be a flight instructor of 8 years on this prodct, and had some great times flying it cross country also. The beauty about it from a training perspective is its cruises at 2300rfp at exactly 60kts, so for planning purposes, makes it very nice on the maths 1 nm p/minute. Its used mainly as a MMG (Military Motor Glider) as a SEP (single engined piston) and requires a TMG (Tourer motor glider) rating to pilot. If any one could put me in touch with the makers of this product, i would be happy tpo pull out my POH and do some air checks to see in comparison how she performs to the reality. Darrylacw579@gmail.com if anyone can put me in touch. thanks. Darryl at 632/VGS EGOE Ternhill where this aircraft is based.

Aircraft is a glider , yes - using a Laminar aerofoil, capable of gliding at a 27:1 ratio, which is outstanding.
