This plane is absolutely terrific if you like “bush” fllying or island hopping to small airports. The textures are not up to ASOBO/Carenado standards, but still very good.

I bought the L19 very soon after release, and it was a bit of a mess, but constant fixes have made it a very enjoyable plane, albeit with a lot of competition in my fleet, like all of the Cubs modified and stock, and the ASOBO Cessnas, even the Just Flight Arrow III.

The Islander is unique, a largish twin with very low stall speed and decent avionics capable of landing almost any runway. Maybe Aerosoft’s Twin Otter will be a good comp in the future, but for now there is nothing.

My advice (and it seems everyone who has actually bought one or more of Blackbox’s MSFS products) is if you want a plane like this, you will not regret buying this one.

It is funny really, but as a complete fan of the JF Arrow, I was really looking forward to that. On Wednesday night, I got the old itch and purchased the Islander. No real time to fly it until today though. Yesterday, JF released the Arrow III/IV Turbo and after an hour in the IV, and 2 hours in the Islander, can you guess which one has given the biggest smile? there is a lot of character in the Islander and a lot in the Arrow too, but that big twin gets my vote, which I can’t believe that I am saying. After removing my goggles and silk scarf, I now get an email saying that it has been improved. I was hoping for a good weekend…

Thanks for the update. Picked up the instruction here to delete the previous install from the ‘Community’ folder and then install the updated version. Might be worth putting this simple instruction into the download page, going forward?

Love this plane. It is fun!

Wow, mega update weekend! Aerosoft, then Just flight, and now the Islander. Happy Memorial Day weekend everybody!

I read you want to change sounds in the future. May I ask what in particular ?
I love the motor sounds and don’t want them changed, just sayin…

Not the sound of the sounds … Their Implementation

From LEGACY P3D Style to WWISE MSFS

It’s a strawman.
