Let L-410

Range744 Nm
The L-410 is the smallest aircraft in our fleet, and the only Czech-made aircraft. It's mainly used for short-range passenger transport but it can also carry cargo. Because of it's STOL-capabilities we use it mainly in the jungles in South America and Asia, and in Africa, but you can fly it anywhere you like. Cruise speed197 knots

Antonov An-24 'Coke'

Range1490 Nm
The An-24 first flew in 1959, and 1367 units were built until 1979. As of 2010 there were almost 297 flying, mostly in Africa and the countries that made up the Soviet Union. It's a rugged aircraft that can land almost everywhere. Because the An-24 is quite complicated in FSX, you may also fly the more modern variant An-26. Cruise speed280 knots
Max cargo load14881 lb
Max passengers50
Max take-off weight46300 lb
Dry operating weight29321 lb

Antonov An-32 'Cline'

Range1350 Nm
The Antonov AN-32 was introduced in 1976 and remains in production until today. Essentially it is a re-engined An-26. It has excellent take-off characteristics in both hot and cold climates, and can take off from airflieds at high altitudes. It can be used to transport either cargo or passengers. Cruise speed254 knots
Max cargo load7500 lb
Max passengers50
Max take-off weight59400 lb
Dry operating weight37038 lb

Antonov An-72 'Coaler'

Range2335 Nm
The AN-72, pictured here just after take-off from a remote airfield inAfghanistan, is another russian STOL aircraft. Like the L-410 and An-32 it can land on short runways, but has the added bonus of jet engines instead of props, so it's a lot faster. The high placement of the jet engines make for a unique design, that gave it the nickname "Cheburaska", a russian version of Mickey Mouse. Cruise speed300 knots
Max cargo load16535 lb
Max passengers68
Max take-off weight76058 lb
Dry operating weight42000 lb

Antonov AN-8 'Camp'

Range1738 Nm
The Antonov AN-8 is a light transport aircraft, mainly used in the Russian military and later some were used by Aeroflot as a freighter. After a series of accidents the airworthiness certificate was withdrawn, ending legal use of the aircraft. This wasn't the end of the An-8 though: because it is quite cheap to run, some operaters in Africa continued using it. One of them was Viktor Bout, who started his business with 3 AN-8's Cruise speed259 knots

Antonov An-12 'Cub'

Range3540 Nm
The AN-12 (pictured here in front of the Kilimanjaro) is a four-engined propeller aircraft mainly used in our Aftrican operations. Due to the many accidents with this type it's currently banned in the UAE, Singapore and even in Russia. But the An-12 is cheap to run and fun to fly, so we keep using it. Size and capabilities can be compared to the Lockheed C-130. Production was stopped in 1973 but the Chinese produced a copy of it called the Shaanxi Y-8, featuring P & W engines and a glass cockpit... Cruise speed361 knots

Lockheed C-130

Range2050 Nm
The C-130 is a propeller transport aircraft introduced by Lockheed-Martin in 1957. Like the Antonov AN-12 it has four propeller engines and a cargo ramp on the back through which you can drive vehicles directly into the cargo bay. The C-130 is also designed to land on rough terrain, but has a slightly lower payload than its Russian counterpart. Lockheed produced over 2300 C-130's and due to a low accident rate many are still in service. Cruise speed292 knots
Max cargo load45000 lb
Max passengers92
Max take-off weight155000 lb
Dry operating weight75800 lb

Boeing 727-223F

Range1700 Nm
The Boeing 727 has a similar setup to the Tu-154 and, like it's russian counterpart, it's been replaced by more modern equipment in much of the "western world". Many 727's were converted to freighters, and our 727 is one of these. Apparently it's been stolen from Luanda in 2003 (google the reg. number for more info) but as long as it flies, we don't ask too many questions :) Cruise speed470 knots
Max cargo load41000 lb
Max passengers6
Max take-off weight184800 lb
Dry operating weight98400 lb

Ilyushin IL-18 'Coot'

Range3510 Nm
The IL-18 first flew in 1957 and until production ended in 1978 there were 564 built. In the first two years after introduction the IL-18 broke 25 world records, and won the Brussels world fair grand prix in 1958. The plane was widely exported, with 17 foreign airline companies using the plane. There are still several IL-18's in use in Africa and the Middle east, but in Europe you find them only stationary: in museums, converted to Hotels (in the Netherlands) or roadside restaurants (Czech republic). Air cess had three IL-18's which were transferred to Air Bas after Aircess was dismantled. The IL18's are reported to have remained in Air cess colorscheme and later re-registered with UN-callsigns.

Boeing 737 BBJ

Range5500 Nm
The Boeing 737 Boeing Business Jet, is a 737 converted for VIP transport. Because there are not so many people on board there is more place for fuel, giving the BBJ a rather large range compared to the regular 737. One of our BBJ's is registered as N4476S - we suggest you google this registration :) Cruise speed448 knots
Max cargo load0 lb
Max passengers63
Max take-off weight171000 lb
Dry operating weight94570 lb

Tupolev Tu-154 'Careless'

Range2851 Nm
The Tu-154 (pictured here in Sharjah) was introduced in 1972 and is still in (limited) production. With a cruise speed of 975km/h it's one of the fastest jet airliners in use. The tu-154 can take off and land on unpaved surfaces and in extreme conditions, making it the ideal workhorse all around greater Russia, Africa and the rougher patches of Asia. Cruise speed459 knots
Max cargo load35000 lb
Max passengers180
Max take-off weight220000 lb
Dry operating weight112000 lb

Airbus A300 Freighter

Range2620 Nm
Some say that the A300 was "the best Boeing Airbus ever built".When it was introduced in 1972 the A300 was the first twin-engined wide-body airliner and the first product of Airbus Industries. Later versions of the A300 automated the flight engineer, making it the first jetliner with a 2-man crew. It was also the first ETOPS-certified aircraft. Airbus produced 561 units until it's production was stopped in 2007, but many remain in service until this day: UPS for example had 71 of these in service on january 2012. Many A300's were converted to freighters, and the A300 is the 2nd most common freighter aircraft after the 747F. Cruise speed450 knots

Iljuschin IL-76 'Candid'

Range2322 Nm
The IL76 was introduced in 1974 and is still in production. Its abilitly to land on unpaved runways makes it ideal for the undeveloped areas that Aircess operated in. The large cargo-hold with drive-in ramp means that even large vehicles like trucks or tanks can be transported. The two Il76 were definately the largest aircraft in the Aircess fleet.

Antonov An-124 'Condor'

Range2900 Nm
The AN-124, introduced in 1986, belongs to the heaviest cargo aircraft in the world. Initially it was intended for use by the military but in 1992 it received certification for civil use. It's tilting nose and ability to "kneel down" make it suitable for carying outsize cargo like locomotives, aircraft fuselages, small submarines, yachts, Atlas V rockets, the Obelisk of Axum and other outsize cargo. It also has its own crane inside the cargo hold, which can winch 120 tonnes on board. In 1987 it set the world record for the longest flight without refueling: 25 hours and 30 minutes Cruise speed432 knots
Max cargo load508000 lb
Max passengers350
Max take-off weight893000 lb
Dry operating weight385000 lb

Boeing 747 Freighter

Range4445 Nm
The Boeing 747F is the most common freighter aircraft in use today. We picked three 747s from a storage yard in the Mojave desert and had them converted to freighters. Our other three 747's (registration numbers TF-ARM, TF-ARN and TF-ARH) were saved from the scrapyard after being abandoned in Kuala Lumpur. Google these registrations for the background story :) Cruise speed507 knots

Antonov An-225 'Cossack'

Range8315 Nm
The AN-225, basicly a large version of the AN-124, is the heaviest airplane ever built. It was originally intended to carry the Buran, Russia's answer to the space shuttle. Two aircraft were ordered but only one was completed. After the fall of the Soviet Union the first An-225 was stored, and it's engines were removed to be used on An-124's. As the need for oversize strategic airlift increased, the first AN-225 was re-engined and put back into service. Work on the second An-225 was started, then abandoned and currently 60% complete. Aircess occasionally leases the sole An-225, and waits for the 2nd aircraft to be completed. Cruise speed432 knots
