GA8 Airvan

1 2 3 4 5
Very nice plane. It is kind of like a smaller version of the Cessna 208 Caravan. Good modeling and flight model. The addition of the amphibian variant increases it's usefulness and adds some fun and there is a cargo version as well. It is well suited to back country flying as it has good short field performance. The engine sound is very nice. Anyone who enjoys flying in Alaska, the Canadian Rockies or similar areas can make good use of the GA8. It is a fun aircraft. (25 Apr 2014, 19:16)
