The BN-2 Islander is a British light utility aircraft, mainline airliner and cargo aircraft designed and originally manufactured by Britten-Norman of the United Kingdom. The Islander is one of the best-selling commercial aircraft types produced in Europe and although designed in the 1960s, over 750 are still in service with some 50 commercial operators around the world. The aircraft is also used by the Army and Police forces in the United Kingdom and is a popular light transport with over 30 military aviation operators.
As is to be expected Flight1 have put together a fantastic simulation of this aircraft, not only with regard to flight model and visuals, but with lots of little extras such as cabin shake effect on take off that all add to an incredibly immersive experience. The Islander is an aircraft that will satisfy airliner pilots as well as GA pilots - whether you want to operate simulated inter-island transport, feeder airliner flights or just simply have fun in this all-purpose aircraft, the Islander is certain to put a smile on your face.
