  • Gooney Bird Flight: Autumn Adventures (Friday 9pm Eastern)

    AIRCRAFT: Douglas C-47 or DC-3. The Manfred Jahn C-47 v2 or v3 is encouraged.

    Advise to anyone would like to fly a twin turboprop and/or more modern aircraft in the group flight.

    The C-47 by Manfred Jahn (freeware) or a default DC-3 is the theme aircraft of this group flight, but we have used any twin engine piston aircraft appropriate to the era such as a Beech 18 or Ventura.

    A turboprop is just too powerful and too fast for the flight plan I put together. The purpose of this group flight to fly an aircraft with limitations that require the pilot to get the most out the aircraft. I am NOT trying to discourage anyone from this group flight, just point them in the direction to get the most out of it.

    To fly along with the rest of us, I would suggest the default Baron 58 if you are still uncomfortable with the C-47/DC-3.
