Original copyright for this aircraft with Aerosoft.

Original copyright for TMA liveries is with Trans Maldivian Airways.

Please respect copyrights and intellectual property rights.

This paint has been created with the kind permission of TMA Managing Director, Mr. Bram Steller. Thank you Bram for the excellent photographs. This paint may not be altered in any way without permission from both myself, Chris Brisland, and Trans Maldivian Airways.

Please also take note that this permission to paint TMA Twotter schemes is exclusively given to me, Chris Brisland. No permission is given to anyone else to paint either the current TMA liveried Twin Otters nor any older liveries.



This zipfile contains only those textures actually changed during the painting process.

Open your FSX aircraft folder for this particular download - it will be something like c://Program Files/Microsoft Games/Microsoft Flight Simulator X/Sim Objects/Airplanes/Aerosoft Twin Otter 100 Floats

Extract this zipfile there. Make sure the winzip option "Use Folder Names" is checked. A new sub-folder called "texture.tma" will be created.

Next open the aircraft.cfg file with any text editor program (Windows editor does the trick) and find the last block of text that starts with a line [fltsim.x] where the x will be a sequential number which starts at flightsim.0 and goes on for as many variants of the model are installed.

The path to the aircraft configuration file will be:

c://Program Files/Microsoft Games/Microsoft Flight Simulator X/Sim Objects/Airplanes/Aerosoft Twin Otter 300/aircraft.cfg

Copy and paste the block of text from below into the aircraft.cfg file and change the x in the first line to the next number up in sequence in your cfg file

Go flying and enjoy!

# Here is a small bonus #


While you are in an editing mood, why not scroll down the aircraft config until you find the last entry "[CameraDefinition.00x]" (It will probably be 006 if Aerosoft didn't change the config from the last beta). NOTE: make sure you find 00x and not just the single digit one. You will note in line 3, that this camera definition is a new virtual cockpiut view...

Just copy/paste the lines here to after the last existing camera definition entry and change the sequential number to the next in line - as I mentioned above, the last one may be 006, so this one will be 007...

So next time you go flying, flick through the virtual cockpit views (key "a" when in VC mode) and the new view will show as "Window seat stbd Row 2C" giving you a passenger's eye view of the starboard engine...

Just a spot of fun...


Title = "Window seat stbd Row 2C"
