Black Square’s Turbine Duke brings you one of the most technically advanced aircraft simulations for Microsoft Flight Simulator, with over 130 possible failures including new turbine engine failures, 12 hot-swappable radio configurations and the most advanced pressurisation and cabin temperature simulations in MSFS.

Black Square’s new tablet interface lets you configure all options, manage payload, control failures and monitor engines, electrical schematics and environmental control systems, all from within the simulator. The failure system allows for persistent wear, MTBF and scheduled failures for nearly every component in the aircraft. The Turbine Duke’s electrical system is the most accurate yet for Black Square, featuring a battery temperature monitor, over-voltage protection, over-current protection and AC inverters. The 3D gauges are modelled and coded to meticulously match their real-world counterparts, with reference to real-world manuals. No piece of equipment appears in a Black Square aircraft without a real-world unit as reference.

Radio navigation systems are available from several eras of the Duke’s history, so users can fly without GPS via a Bendix KNS-81 RNAV system or with the convenience of a Garmin GTN 750 (PMS50 or TDS). Other radio equipment includes KX-155 NAV/COM radios, KLN-90B, GTN 650, KR 87 ADF, KDI 572 DME, GTX 327 Transponder, Century IV Autopilot and a Bendix RDR1150XL Weather Radar.

A 160+ page manual provides instruction on all equipment and 56 in-game checklists with control/instrument highlighting are included for normal and emergency procedures. The Turbine Duke conversion incorporates the 'Grand Duke' performance package (winglets, vortex generators, strakes, extra fuel, increased speeds and increased MGTOW).

Three distinctive interiors and six paint schemes are included from three decades of flying.

Primarily analogue instrumentation augmented with modern radio navigation equipment is still the most common aircraft panel configuration in the world. Challenge your piloting skills by flying IFR to minimums with a fully analogue panel and no GPS. You’ll be amazed at the level of skill and proficiency you can achieve to conquer such adversity and how it will translate to all your other flying. You may also find the analogue instrumentation much easier to read with the limited number of pixels available on a computer monitor, and even more so in VR.

For more information on the aircraft's capabilities and a list of all included avionics and equipment, see the Detailed Description below and the extensive PDF Operating Manual.

If you'd like to know the differences between the Turbine Duke and the Piston Duke models, this summary lists all the main features.

SHARED FEATURES

Black Square’s best aircraft yet will challenge you with unapologetically realistic systems such as:
  • 160-page manual with your complete guide to flying the Black Square Dukes, including systems guide, tutorials, operating limitations, performance tables and electrical schematics.
  • NEW TABLET INTERFACE! for configuring options, payload settings, failure management and real-time visualisers for engines, electrical schematics and environmental systems.
  • 12 hot-swappable radio configurations, configurable via tablet interface. Inc. PMS & TDS.
  • 130+ random, scheduled or performance-triggered failures, settable via the tablet interface, including engine damage, compatible with third party UIs and instructor stations.
  • Fully simulated environmental control and pressurisation system for heating, air conditioning, ventilation and ram air cooling. Cool things off by opening a door or watch the aircraft heat up in the sun. Monitor via the new tablet interface.
  • NEW engine preheating required for cold starts, with heater and ground power cart.
  • NEW voltage-based light dimming, an immediately recognisable effect to night-time pilots.
  • NEW gyroscope physics simulation for electric and pneumatic gyroscopes with precession and partial failures, based on a coupled quadrature oscillator.
  • NEW KLN-90B vintage GPS. Download from https://github.com/falcon71/kln90b/releases
  • NEW strobe light system causes realistic distracting flashes in clouds.
  • NEW St. Elmo’s Fire and static discharge on static wicks and windshields in severe weather.
  • NEW KNS-81 RNAV now supports autopilot with No-GPS configuration.
  • Mathematically accurate VOR and ADF signal attenuation and noise degradation.
  • Physics-based instrument needles bounce and respond to aerodynamic forces.
  • Improper engine management will slowly damage engines to failure.
  • Completely simulated electrical system, with 100+ circuit breakers and failures.
  • Functional exterior elements: chocks, pitot covers, engine covers, propane preheater and external power cart.  Pitot cover flags blow in the wind.
  • Carbon Monoxide leaks are possible and can be detected with the CO detector.
  • State saving for fuel, radio selection, radio frequency memory, cabin aesthetics etc.
  • Crew/Passenger oxygen depletes according to pressure altitude, passenger occupancy.
  • Ultra-custom dynamic registration number system for livery creators.

TURBINE DUKE SPECIFIC FEATURES
  • NEW improved turboprop dynamics, including (ITT, TRQ, Ng, FF, FP), hot starts, residual heat and exhaust back pressure, P2.5 HP and LP valve simulation, and oil cooler doors.
  • NEW turbine engine failures, such as compressor stall and surging, fuel control failure, fuel filter clogs, propeller governors and fire suppression systems.
  • NEW FOD damage based on surface type. Use the inertial separators to avoid engine damage. Tablet interface displays type and intensity of FOD.
  • NEW turbine engine propeller and feathering physics-driven simulation.
  • NEW beta range simulation - an improvement upon the Black Square TBM beta range.
  • ETM Engine Trend Monitor. Dual Battery temperature monitor and AC inverter logic.
CHECKLISTS

Over 500 checklist items are provided for 56 Normal, Abnormal and Emergency procedures in textual form in the manual, and in-game, using the MSFS native checklist system with control and instrument highlighting. If it’s in the checklist, it’s settable in the aircraft!

SOUNDS

Black Square’s Duke features a custom sound set created by Boris Audio Works with care to the unique operating aspects of this classic aircraft. High quality engine and cockpit sounds will immerse you in the simulation. Sounds such as engine starting are not mere recordings, but are instead many layered sounds, constructed based on the underlying simulation.

FLIGHT DYNAMICS

The Turbine Duke features a flight model with performance to match the real-world aircraft based on real Duke owner feedback and in-flight data. Engine and aerodynamic performance should be within 2% of POH values, though no two engines are ever the same.  The flight model uses the most up-to-date features available in MSFS, such as CFD propeller and stall physics, and SU15 improved ground handling and flexible tyre physics. Engine damage and fouling produces a rough-running engine and decreased performance.
