Carenado New Project - Beechcraft 1900D!

FSX/P3D. Well now, I certainly wasn't expecting this announcement! Carenado has officially confirmed the Beechcraft 1900D! The developer is clearly venturing into some bigger metal. What a great choice though - very much looking forward to this one. Take a look at some preliminary renders inside.

Bought the TBM yesterday - Beautiful exterior, one of the best I've seen. but the interior and flight dynamics are bad. very bad.

DAndre Newman said...

Totally want! Great choice Carenado!!

But agreed on the TBM850. Its grounded for those reasons and I hoping fir an update as I am dredding having to write such a negative review iver an aircraft I love so much... Snif...

But nice to see Carenado venturing into this market! Well done indeed!

DAndre Newman said...

BTW they should include the 1900C with cargo pod.

I wish they would make Dash-8-1/2/300

Interesting choice by Carenado. This might be one to look out for, because we are in desperate need of an updated 1900D. Good to have another regional turboprop flying. Hopefully it will have more system depth than the old PMDG version.

great aircraft for ORbx fields too!

Great choice, are you serious? We already have this aircraft:

The Pilatus PC-12 NG, Piaggio P-180 Avanti, or Epic LT ( http://youtu.be/1DT-LvUyjqc ) would have been much better choices!

Not holding my breath. They should invest their energy in finishing the TBM 850 first!

DAndre Newman said...

Am I serious? Are you stupid?

I bought that aircraft in your link years ago dude. Last I checked it's FS9 only. All my turboprop flights take place in P3D.

Sorry you don't like the choice. But you will be okay. I promise.

DAndre Newman said...

I agree with that. Still messing with my .CFG to get it to fly right but it's like a scale, I fix one thing and another thing goes bonkers...

E120 would have been nice.

This are just collection in the hangar you don't need to fly them.
I bought many aircraft from them also yesterday one from Alabeo, you don't need fsx to for them just a 3D software so you can check them by every angle.

Seriously... An Embraer 120 is so needed!

Anonymous said...

Saab 340 would have been better.

...or Saab 2000

Nice news, also agree for a Saab2000. And where is the vucking first sight on the new alabeo?
=)

DAndre Newman said...

It's coming along with a full review.

We were late on this because we were waiting on an update. But the excuse now is we love the Staggerwing that now only are we bringing the Firstlook from Mark today but I will also publish a full review tonight. The D17 is the best toy I got this year so far. It's damn good!

Just stick with us, the stuff will be published soon!

The PMDG 1900C/D are FS9 only, not compatible with FSX and they are very old.

Carenado with system depth? Doubt it. Would love to see a properly modeled 1900D. I'm sure the Carenado version will be pretty eye candy, but I don't expect system depth.

Anonymous said...

Agreed, an E-120 would be very nice. The brasilia is used quite a bit, frankly quite a bit more than the B1900D nowadays.

Frank said...

Razbam is doing A E-120. It's just a matter of time....

I'll pass. Carenado simply doesn't have the skill to manage the flight dynamics and systems to make this thing remotely a possibility.

Rick Harms said...

Wow! Thqts a shocker. Make me wonder when we'll see a light jet from them.

Anonymous said...

Carenado is at least doing decent airplanes, hope they get into with the big boys with this one:)

Finally! A FSX native 1900D. WOOHOO!!

ALX WNT said...

I got a feeling that SOON.... we'll see bigger aircrafts from Carenado.

I just knew they would do the Beech 1900, it's just a natural progression of things. I'm expecting some good eye-candy and lite flight dynamics/systems.

Trivia: Did you know that the vast majority of B1900s in airline service don't have an autopilot installed? It's 100% hand flown.

Anonymous said...

I don't recall ever seeing one with out an autopilot and I have seen a lot of 1900Ds.

There is a mode controller over the EADI and the AP Master, Y/D, turn knob and pitch/speed rocker on the center pedestal.

Anonymous said...

None of the B1900Ds I flew for Great Lakes or Continental Express had autopilots. The selectors and knobs above the EADI controlled the flight director only. I suppose there was an autopilot: the first officer.

I know the Air New Zealand (Eagle) B1900s certainly doesn't have one.

Mark Smith said...

"Since virtually all 1900s were sold to regional airlines with 2 pilot crews, there wasn't a need for an auto pilot. You already have a second pilot anyway, why pay for the upkeep for a third." Quoted from a Beech 1900D pilot/trainer.

Not to mention the extra 200 plus pounds made the difference of taking off or leaving revenue behind. (Paying passenger) FYI, there are still many small commuters without autopilots flying today.

any idea for a date?

Well played, sir. Well played.

Hardcore Simmer said...

I hope that we have full systems and flight dynamics. PMDGs B1900 series works perfectly in FSX, despite being marketed for FS9. I have the 1900C and D model and I have no issues. PMDG's 1900 is a "Lite" simulation. We need a full one!

Hardcore Simmer said...

Please Carenado, don't give us a "Lite" simulation. PMDG's B1900, which, as a matter of fact, works in FSX quite well, is already a "Lite" simulation. Don't give us what we already have and use! Give us full realism!

Hardcore Simmer said...

Sorry, didn't mean to post twice there.
