So I’ve been thinking of spreading my wings so to speak and using other aircraft besides my trust C172. I would like to use ones that can be used for passenger and cargo missions in Neofly but isn’t as big as an airliner (737 or A320). I’ve only flown the C172 and have played around with the A320 so something in between would be a nice compromise. I like so see the scenery so flying as high as airliners takes that bit away from me.
So, what plane (or planes) would you recommend? Study level is fine.
Also, as an added question. Can a plane equipped with a g1000 or better automate a ILS landing?
Thanks in advance for any info and recommendations you can provide.
the Cessna c208 caravan is the next logical ‘default aircraft’ step for NeoFly (cargo wise)
the Kodiak would be a great aftermarket choice as well
i tend to only fly smaller ga aircraft and thats my goto for a ‘bigger’ aircraft, its not so complex as to be hard/long learning curve and it can do short fields or even off airport landings, both a benefit for neofly
there are Very few airports equipped and licensed for ‘automated landings’ this is Not something that is common practice or done on commercial flights as of yet
the ils just gets you to minimums, after that a pilot Must take over and fly the plane into the airport
but yes the g1000 is capable of locking onto an ils approach, including glide slope if available
yes they do and can land at large international airports all the time, but one of the advantages of smaller ‘regional’ transports is not having too. they can land nearby at a regional airport and get in/out much faster and cheaper
Landing/Airport fees can get expensive
I spend most of my time flying the Beechcraft Baron which is included in the Deluxe MSFS package. Easy to fly. Great avionics with WT G1000nxi. A good bit faster than a 172, and much better climb performance. Two engines to manage. Love it.
