Pocket Rocket

Buy Now from X-Aviation

The Pocket Rocket is a lightweight, PT6 powered beast! We have modeled two variants: a retractable-tricycle configuration and a fixed tailwheel version. Both have empty weights of near 1,000 pounds and are equipped with the 715 ESHP PT6A-28 engine. With the equipped Oxygen system, you can take this plane to FL250 and cruise for hours! In the retract version, cruise speeds of up to Mach 0.6 can be reached!

A highly detailed simulation of a PT-6 equipped Pocket Rocket originally inspired by Thomas Dietrich. This aircraft comes with a simulated G1000 that gets its internal Synthetic Vision code from the infamous Hot Start TBM 900, includes a simulated Garmin G5, numerous liveries and a maintenance and failure simulation. FMOD sounds are also included to give you that extra edge!
