The Beechcraft Starship "Model 2000" (ICAO: STAR / WAKE: LIGHT) is a twin-turboprop pressurized business aircraft. Created in Second Life by DSA Aeronautics, the aircraft was based on the real-life Beechcraft Starship, built in the United States of America by Beech Aircraft Corporation (now Beechcraft).
The real-life Beechcraft Starship is noteworthy for its carbon fiber composite airframe, canard design, lack of centrally located vertical tail, and pusher engine/propeller configuration. Model 2000 was the initial production version of the aircraft, with twenty units produced including three pre-production airworthy prototypes.
