CLICK HERE FOR UPDATED VERSION WITH MORE REALISTIC HANDLING

The H&S Skylark is Henry & Son's idea of traveling in style. When chartering a flight for your corporate business trip, the H&S Skylark is the aircraft you want. It has room for six in its spacious cabin, with comfortable leather seating. It also has 50 cu. ft. of cargo space for anything you need to take with you. With two turboprop engines each producing 300 hp, the Skylark has a top speed above 215 mph. And with more than 600 gallons fuel capacity, the Skylark has a greater range than its competitors. When it comes to flying in comfort and style, the Skylark is a benchmark of the industry. Takeoff speed: 80 mph. Landing speed: 70 mph.

Flight controls are standard.

AG1- Engine 1, instruments.
AG2- Engine 2.
AG3- Lights.
AG4- Landing light.
AG5- Open door.

VTOL- Flaps.
Trim- Trim.

Features:

  • functional flaps, custom control surfaces
  • unique livery
  • detailed interior
  • functional cockpit/instruments
  • ADI digital attitude indicator (built by @MrSilverWolf)
  • analog artificial horizon (which I built myself, hooray!)
  • “dynamic” camera view

Thanks to @Chancey21 for helpful feedback/suggestions.

I drew a lot of inspiration for this build from @jamesPLANESii's Scout Moray. So a big thank you to him (also the front landing light is from the Scout Moray).

Some parts in the cockpit, including the ADI (digital attitude indicator) were built by @MrSilverWolf, who also gave me some helpful advice, feedback, and encouragement. Thank you.

Thanks to @AchuTMM for helping me troubleshoot and get my screen caps to embed in the description. Thank you!!!

I think that's it... I hope you guys like it!

Happy flying :)

    Haha yup. It is basically a land version of the Moray. I just loved the Moray so much, I wanted to build something like that of my own, and also kinda as tribute. Although I decided not to do the amphibian part because I didn’t want it to seem like just a straight copy. @jamesPLANESii

    Just one thing, your main landing gear is placed too far back.

    I used your attitude indicator in the update of this build, maybe you would like to check it out? Link at the top of the description... @ChiChiWerx

    Thank you so much! :) yeah, maybe it was a little overboard to put my own attitude indicator in there on top of @MrSilverWolf’s ADI... but I suppose it’s plausible, right? @ChiChiWerx

    This looks really good. Your building skills have really improved a lot, and it shows. My only complaint is that this is way too maneuverable. This handles like an Extra 300, not a commuter plane. Realistically this should probably take about twice the width of Yeager to turn, maybe more. I also feel like the stall speed is a little too slow. If you need some inspiration to how something like this should handle, check out some video of Bob Hoover’s Aero Commander aerobatic routine. Not trying to be nitpicky or anything, and this is a really beuatiful build! :)
