The Beechcraft Baron is a light twin engined aircraft introduced in 1961. The model is of the B55 version.

The aircraft has an automatically operating landing gear. This retracts at takeoff speed (160 kph) set in the script. It lowers at speeds below 160 kph. The flaps operate automatically after rolling and up to 140 kph. The speeds for tilting, flap retraction and landing gear retraction on takeoff may be altered in the string table of the config file – speeds are in kph.
