Speed in style
The futuristic low-drag high-lift design of the 180 EVO makes it an unrivalled turboprop executive transport.
Speed & economy
The 180 EVO sports two FADEC controlled Pratt & Whitney Canada PT6A-66B turboprops rated at 850 shp power each. It has a maximum range of over 1,400 nm, service ceiling of 41,000 ft and max high cruise of 402kts.
The Blackbird Simulations 180 EVO features a fully functional emulation of the PL21. It is a perfect way to familiarise yourself with its systems before going on to study the real thing.
Accurate & In-Depth
Our goal is to create an immersive, true-to-life experience for any simulator pilot, regardless of experience. Choose to fly the 180 EVO by the book, or simply jump in and fly - it's your choice!
The Blackbird Simulations 180 EVO features an intricately modelled, true-to-life interior and exterior, with an abundance of fine detail. All gauges, switches and controls feature smooth animation, even the buttons on yokes operate as the real ones.
Custom lighting makes night operations atmospheric and immersive, while high resolution textures with lifelike metal effects create a simulation like no other.
Our 180 EVO goes beyond the default simulator functionality in order to provide an accurate, realistic recreation of key characteristics and systems functionality.
Included WX Advantage Weather Radar
The Blackbird Simulations 180 EVO package also includes a copy of the innovative Blackbird Simulations WX Advantage weather radar. The presence of this weather radar unit in the panel is completely optional - you can fly with or without it!
(Please note: The included WX Advantage will only function in the 180 EVO in P3D v5.1.)
