This is the sleek, modernistic, powerful Trinidad TB21 GT. This beautiful 4 seater aircraft sports a 250 HP Lycoming TIO540 coupled with a computer managed Turbocharger, enabling the TB21 to climb and cruise up to 20,000 feet Altitude. The interior is clad in leather and the layout and design of the interior is reminiscent of luxury car interiors of that era. The Trinidad was one of the few planes with ample shoulder room, making it a very comfortable plane for long journeys. The front and back seats even featured folding arm rests. The GT variant (Generation Two) featured a larger cargo area in the back of the plane, and with a larger access door. The Trinidad was fitted with an Anti-Icing prop system and oxygen so you could cruise at the higher altitudes, up to 20,000 feet, where you can see airliners casually passing by. The Trinidad's Turbocharger enables for a strong and steep takeoff climb of 1100 FPM with full weight, and 1200 to 1400 empty with single pilot aboard. Cruise in the Trinidad is 190 knots, fast cruise and 170 Knots Economy Cruise. Fuel range of the Trinidad TB21 GT Turbo was 1000 Nautical Miles at 75% power. She can hold just over 44 US Gal's of fuel per wing, 88 US Gal's total with just over 86+ Gal's useable. Maximum Takeoff Weight is 3080 lbs. This high detail model package features 22 high resolution exterior paint themes, 5 different interior themes, an exotic Avionics Suite that includes the GNS430 system for COM1/NAV1, the KFC225 AutoPilot system, a nice GPS500 for visual map navigation, and may I say, she is a dream to fly....
The Exteriors feature a 4K resolution (4096 x 4096 pixel) Fuselage texture, super resolution polygon modelling, flush side window plexiglass, retracting foot step pylons, high detail landing gear featuring Ambient Occlusion shading. There are 22 various paint schemes for external liveries, ranging from France and England, to Canada and America, to Australia and even 2 Military variants. One British and one Australian set of variants feature very weathered, faded, bug spattered, muddied up versions that are showing their wear for their age.
INTERIOR THEMES 4 DIFFERENT INTERIORS
This package features 5 different versions of interiors. Gray standard, Lite Tan, rich brown, rare blue suede, and dirtied up gray. A couple of the tan interiors might have gray instrument pods, as this is how some real world Trinidads are laid out. If you are knowledgeable in moving around textures, you can change the color of an interior by trading out the color sheets to a planes texture folder, changing it from gray to brown, etc.
The interiors are jam packed with tiny details, knobs and levers. The arm rests swivel up out of the way of the fuel selector and rudder trim. The control yokes can be hidden away by clicking the white under-panel-pull-handle. The instrumentation features standard (mostly) Trinidad equipment. We tried to make them as standard as possible, though many Trinidads show a lot of customization in this department. We fitted our model with a GPS500, GNS430, and a COM2 NAV2 unit. The grain of the leather is clearly seen in the high resolution textures as well as lite scuffing and wear, little scratches on the instrument panel faces, etc.
The Trinidad features glass covered instruments but we found that with FSX users, they could not get mouse-over data from the instruments, so we made the glass able to be hid by the click of the glass face, or the small knob in the top right of the pilots instrument pod.
Due to moderate negative input from customers about reflections and tinting, we used almost zero reflections (only on the front, but barely visible) and soft shading/dusting on the windows edges. Otherwise, the glass (inside) is very clean and tint free. Only the outside is dark tinted on the nicer aircraft fleet. The dirtied up aircraft feature very low tinting and they are a bit dirty as well, outside only

*Note about P3D V5 compatibility: All planes should work fine in P3D V5 and all planes include a P3D V5 option in their installer. Some have been tested in V5 by owners/customers, but none were tested by the developer directly until now. The word is, P3D V4 planes work fine in Prepar3D V5. None of the planes feature PBR material technology, so bugs in that system should not exist - no PBR tech, only standard V4 material technologies (confirmed by Lionheart Creations).
