BN-2 Islander

TorqueSim is excited to announce that our BN-2 Islander is available now!

The BN-2 Islander is a light twin designed in the 1960s as a regional airliner and utility aircraft and is still widely flown today. Thanks to its rugged construction and excellent short-field performance, this aircraft can be found with operators all over the world. The model simulated is the BN-2B-26, equipped with 2 Lycoming O-540 engines. The plane has an 1800 pound useful load with full tanks and can carry nine passengers on missions with the shortest of runways. Additionally, a 730 nautical mile maximum range and 140-knot cruising speed give the Islander enormous operational flexibility. This airplane is the perfect addition to any simmer’s hangar!
