News! - Aircraft Upgraded to XP11 : PA-34 Seneca V HD Series by Carenado  


Earlier this year Carenado released their excellent PA-34 Seneca V HD Series aircraft. They did note at the time that as soon as X-Plane11 was in a final release they would then update the aircraft to X-Plane11 specifications. This has now been done with the v1.2 release and now available for download from the X-Plane.OrgStore or Carenado. As this aircraft was released under the six month purchase point then this upgrade is free to all current owners of the aircraft.

I am a big fan of this aircraft, lovely to fly and it has great avionics in the Garmin G500 navigation system.
