NEWS! - Aircraft Upgrade : Piper Aerostar 700P by X-Hangar Ted R. Smith was an aviation legend, this is the same person of whom also designed the famous Aero Commander, and bought the first small business jet aircraft to market, which was the Jet Commander which evolved into the Astra Jet.... Then there was his Aerostar/Sequoia the fastest Twin-Engined general aviation aircraft ever built... just the right aircraft for drug running, right. So another legend but in the infamous collection of bad people pretending to be really a good person to get rich is Barry Seal, who was a sort of Robin Hood in reverse, Seal was a pilot for the commercial airline TWA, and was contacted by a CIA case officer and asks Seal to fly clandestine reconnaissance missions for the CIA over Central America using a small plane with cameras installed. But the deal becomes a two sided affair with Seal running drugs into the United States one way for the cartels, and then also smuggling and trading guns back to the cartel in the other direction for the CIA. So for operations like that you need a pretty good aircraft that was the fastest you get you hands on and could fly very high (or very low) when required... depending on who was actually shooting at you. This real life caper was recreated in a film called "American Made" with a certain Tom (Top Gun) Cruise as Barry Seal, but the real star of the film is certainly the Aerostar 600, which was the perfect tool for the dodgy business of doing clandestine CIA missions in moving drugs and running guns. During the time of production, the Aerostar held the speed record for fastest twin piston General Aviation aircraft, capable of cruise speeds from 220 kt (408 km/h) for the earliest 600 models to 261 kt (483 km/h) for the later 700 models. Light construction, low drag and high powered engines also contribute to fast climb rates. So here an upgrade of the Aerostar 700P aircraft by X-Hangar to X-Plane 12, and yes the X-Plane 11 version is also provided in the same package.
