In Development: BN-2 Islander

For all your bush-flying passenger-carrying cargo-hauling air-taxiing needs, TorqueSim are proud to present the legendary BN-2 Islander for X-Plane 11!

Initially started independently of TorqueSim, the inclusion of this beautiful bird into the new TS development pipeline has allowed for rapid progress and the seamless integration of custom systems, as well as boosting the quality of the 3D models and textures significantly!

This aircraft will feature a high quality model, PBR textures throughout, a full custom electrical system with working circuit breakers, support for the AFM G5 avionics on launch, and of course the fantastic roar of its O-540s will be rendered in beautiful FMOD!

All that, and more to come as we plan to update and improve our product throughout its lifetime!

To stay up to date with what’s going on, don’t forget to follow this blog, the AFM Discord, and keep a close eye on the various X-Plane forums! Stay tuned for more dev updates, screenshots, and insights, and of course for the big moment when our plane is available to fly on X-Aviation!

For any questions, suggestions, or just to chat: Hit us up @Random’93 (models/textures) @Coop (systems) and @Not_Steaven (FMOD sounds) on the AFM/TorqueSim Discord (Join at!

  1. I love the “low and slow and land anywhere (almost anywhere) aircraft and is a big reason I favor helicopters. I had the BN-2 for X-Plane 10 and really look forward to purchasing the X-Plane 11 from you!

  2. Just purchased and installed into X-plane 11.41. The switches on the panel make lots of noise but do nothing, autopilot works but doesn’t light up, unable to enter a squawk code because that doesn’t light up. No landing lights, taxi lights or panel lights. Running lights work though. Not sure whats wrong, I’m sure you didn’t design it that way.
    I love the aircraft, let me know what gives!
