Why is the Nardi FN333 Special?

The Nardi FN.333 Riviera is special for a number of reasons:

  • It is a very rare aircraft, with only 29 ever built.
  • It is a beautifully designed and elegant aircraft, with a sleek profile and distinctive twin-boom tail assembly.
  • It is a highly versatile aircraft, capable of operating from both land and water.
  • It is a luxurious aircraft, with a comfortable interior and a high level of standard equipment.

In addition to these general features, the FN.333 Riviera is also notable for the following:

  • It is one of the first amphibious aircraft to be designed with a pusher configuration propulsion system, which places the engine behind the main cabin. This offers a number of advantages, including reduced noise levels in the cabin, improved visibility for the pilot, and reduced risk of foreign object damage to the engine.
  • It has retractable landing gear and floats, which allows it to operate from a wide variety of surfaces, including rough runways, grass strips, and lakes.
  • It has a spacious interior that can accommodate four people in comfort.
  • It is equipped with a number of luxury features, such as leather seats, a wood-trimmed cabin, and a stereo system.

Overall, the Nardi FN.333 Riviera is a unique and special aircraft that offers a combination of performance, versatility, luxury, and style. Now we can fly it on MSFS thanks to Mario Noriega’s most recent addon.

  1. I bought the Nardi Riviera, I give it full throttle, I release the parking brakes but the plane doesn’t move… is there anything else to do that I don’t know about?

    1. Hello Marco. I’ve just tested the airplane and it seems to be working fine. My best guess is that your engine shut down. Because the propeller is in the back, it’s hard to notice sometimes. If that is the case, see if you have the left fuel tank selected. It should be above your head. Hope this helps.
