The Dornier DO 228-212 NG is a twin-engine turboprop passenger, cargo and special missions aircraft designed by . The Dornier 228 made its first flight in 1981 and is subsequently produced until today. This model, the NG ("New Generation") variant was introduced in 2007 by RUAG Aerospace, which took over production and design from the defunct Dornier-Werke company. In late 2020, the program was again sold to General Atomics Europe, which continues the production and maintenance in Oberpfaffenhofen, Germany.[1]

The FlightGear Model

RUAG, the aircraft's manufacturer until 2020, was as nice as to provide a Pilot Operating Handbook of the aircraft as well as answering some questions. D-ECHO is trying to create the aircraft's model, FDM and systems simulation as closely to the available data as possible. This also means that the progress is rather slow and rather big parts are still missing (e.g. the engine models are still very incomplete until better reference is found). Help is welcome, but the POH can't be shared. If you want to help, please contact D-ECHO, preferably via the forum or Discord.
