OK, I really like flying this Lear. The ground handling and flight model both feel superb, and because I’ve retrofitted the panel with the GTN750, I’ve got just the right balance of traditional and current navigation ability. The autopilot lacks throttle control, so you can’t just set it and forget it. Some folks noted the lack of EPR being their major gripe, and while I can see their point, everything else is so good, that it’s not enough to keep me from recommending this aircraft.
However, there is one very big gotcha. That is that the VC doesn’t seem to get along well with my Rift. I’m still trying to get verification, but this will definitely be a show stopper for some. Hope that XP can resolve this.
