Thanks to Andrew Spring of www.p166.com!! The fifth of the coming P-166 aircraft series. I'm going to build the whole family of these graceful twins. This file covers the whole production line of the P-166CL2! (Well, just 2...). The Piaggio P-166A is a light small twin. An Exotic twin-engine prop that sold all over the world including America, UK, and Australia. The P-166CL2 was developed to take advantage of the cabin spaciousness of the P-166 series: a new landing gear that retracts under the fuselage into two small blisters lets expand the internal useful area more backwards between the wings, as there is no central section. This lets the P-166CL2 accommodate 12 passengers + pilot. The old gear bays at the side of the fuselage were replaced with two large windows that give a strange top-down view for the passenger. Tip-tanks are optionally detachable, as using them plus 12 passengers makes the plane go overweight. Means that the 12 passengers can only be transported on a considerably short range. Only 2 P-166CL2s were built, due to the low-range caused by the small old-type tip-tanks and the instability of the new landing gear, that gave serious problems while taxiing. The P-166C is dated October '64, and converted to CL2 in 1972. The aircraft is still in production in a slightly modified turboprop version, the P-166D-P1. This model is 760 Kbs with c.a. 23000 polygons in c.a.170 assemblies. Features Clickable Dynamic VC with non-planar throttle quadrant. Detailed internals. Fully compatible with FS 2002 (pro edition)
