Reason for choice

The Turbolet was the first plane I could check out close up and touch as a kid. That one was used to drop parachuters at a small airfield. Sadly that time it was out of service due to money problems.

Former Hungarian Airline FARNAIR had several L-410's but unfortunately one of them (HA-LAR) has crashed near Iasi airport in Romania.

The Let 410 departed Bucharests domestic airport Baneasa for a regular mail flight to Iasi. Weather was poor as the aircraft arrived near Iasi. Snowfall limited the visibility to approximately 2 kilometers with a temperature of -4C. The first attempt to land was reportedly aborted. On the second attempt the airplane crashed near a road short of the runway. (from ASN)

This project is a tribute to the memory of its crew — Cpt. Sebők "Mama" Győző and Péter Cziráki

    Antonov An-2 for X-Plane

    It all started with my all-time favourite plane, the Annushka - Antonov An-2. I loved watching this plane fly by our house when I was a kid. I was lucky enough to work on these planes in high-school. Since, the love for this beautful plane hasn't faded a bit :)

    First release of the Turbolet

    The first release only had a simple 2D panel, a nice but still simple exterior. I was started working on the 3D cockpit, but the development was pretty slow, it took almost 4 years to get to the point where I was satisfied with the results.

    The breakthrough: 3D cockpit

    After almost 6 years of development, the plane was finally released with the long-waited 3D cockpit. At the time X-Plane could handle only 2K textures, therefore with today's eye it's a bit low-resoltion.

  • Nowadays

    Current development

    Currently working on a plugin system which models the plane's behaviour, systems and gives a complete and realistic representation of the real-plane. There's no planned release date at the moment as there are many things to finish, also X-Plane and development tools often changes meanwhile.
