the Turbo Arrow should be listed in Turboprops, not Propellers



  • Hi!

    In the MSFS Hangar both variants of the PA28 Turbo Arrow are in the category "Propellers", but they should be in "Turboprops".

    Besides being correct, this has the added benefit of moving both aircraft from a very populated category (22 in my installation) to a smaller one (3 in my installation), which makes it much easier to find 🙂

    Thank you,
    Thomas

    Edit: If I press "F10" to show the specifications, the other three aircraft show "Engine: 1 Turboprop" (or 2). I don't know if MSFS uses this to determine the category, but even if not, maybe this should be changed as well.



  • @ThomasAH no they should not - they are turbocharged propellor engines, very different to a turboprop!



  • @Delta558 said in the Turbo Arrow should be listed in Turboprops, not Propellers:

    Ah, thank you. Before writing my post I searched a bit and the Turbo Arrow was often referred to as a turboprop (and the other MSFS aircraft listed in this category seemed similar), but after searching for "turboprop vs turbocharged" I clearly see the differences.



  • MSFS could benefit from a couple more categories indeed. I would love to see “ultralights” separated for instance.
