Recently we have seen a lot of codes used to unlock our products being offered for discounted prices. Almost all of them are bought using stolen credit cards. These codes will all be blocked by our systems and you will have to try to get your money back from the seller, we are unable to assist in these matters. Do be very careful when you see a deal that is almost too good to be true, it probably is too good to be true.

Twin Otter Extended Preview (FSX,P3D)

Recommended Posts

We are happy to annouce that we have just started work on a new Twin Otter project to replace the best seller Twin Otter product that is not a few years old. It still sells well and we understand why, it's still a very solid add-on. But it is getting outdated rather fast. The new project will be much more in the line of the Bronco. So with high details in most systems and some maintenance aspects.

Next week we will do the photoshoot and measurements at our newest best friends at Businesswings located in Kassel.

Now clearly we got nothing to show but if you have suggestions, comments, let me hear them! Note that the 'Twin Otter Extended' is t he project name, we might select another name.

For old pricks like me, make an option that keeps the Twotter suitable for those who just want to fly it :-)

Very good news!! 2 question that came into my mind:

- do you also talk to Ken Borek Air, IMHO they are the world largest operator of the Twinotter. Just thinking about AntarcticaX

- is a modell of the new Series 400 planned?

And yes, system depth comparable to the Bronco would be relly great!

Like on the Bronco we will add the option to turn off all failures etc.

On top of that the PT-6 engines are easier to operate than the fixed shaft turboprop that are used on the Bronco.

I know it is very early to ask, but do you already know if customers of the old Twotter will get the new one discounted?

As far as I know there is only one demo model of the 400 so I doubt we will include that. Will need to speak to Viking before deciding that.

I do have some contact with Ken Borek Air.

I doubt that. We always have the point of view that if we use old code again there should be a discount but this will be a full new build.

Super good,

I flew with this plane so often on vacation on the Maldives. This is a very good idea of you! If you need help for the painting, then I can provide you with repaints!

Hello Mathijs, will the new version a update of the old one or a completely new product?

I have a feeling Aerosoft are about to add another twin to my hangar, to join the Bronco and Catalina.

It's becoming my pet peeve but please include a best as possible icing and anti-icing on the Twotter/PTA6 engines.

And please consider RXP integration.

Very pleased with the development of a new Twin Otter.

They started production last year or something, about one aircraft delivered each month. Looks like they are doing pretty well.

How long does it usually take to make an addon of the quality you're going for here?

The 400 looks like a capable airplane, but new aircraft just don't have the same character as older ones. Plus the electrical system is completely different. Considering the amount of coding a Viking Twotter would take, combined with the performance hit of a glass cockpit, I'm happy with steam gauges. As preiously requested, 3D RXP integration would be outstanding. I'll also put in a plug for an altimeter that can be set in inches as well as millibars for us Yanks. Maybe some tundra tires for the bush flyers and possibly a cargo variant? Looking forward to it guys...I'm sure it'll be outstanding.

Great to see a new Twotter on the horizon!!

I rather like to stick to the older models (100/300) not the 400! A tundra tyre equipped plane is one I agree with Prozac, but we also need them for Antarctica...so ski/wheels !

A proper loading proggie, not just passengers but cargo as well, might be very welcomed by the community.

Cheers,

Hank

Well, this is certainly good news but what about the new Beaver? Has that project been abandoned? I certainly hope not.

Cheers,

Fritz

Loving this! I will surely buy a new, more detailed development of the Twin Otter. It has always been one of my favorite FS add ons.

Sounds great!

The Twin Otter is still one of my favourites!!

Mathijs, are you planning Twin Otter version for X-Plane 10, or FSX only?
