NAIA Verona
Class meets cutting-edge performance in NAIA’s latest turboprop airliner, the Verona
About this creation

The National Aerospace Intelligence Agency of Islandasia (NAIA Islandasia) is proud to introduce the renovating Verona.



NAIA Islandasia has long considered closing the bridge between its two popular mid-range commercial airliners, the Orbit and the Renova. Airlines began looking for an airliner with the capacity of a NAIA Renova but the convenience of a NAIA Orbit. Thus, plans for a hybrid began development. The result was the makeshift and hastily-designed yet well-executed Verona, an altogether beautiful and efficient modern turboprop medium-range airliner.





In a one-class configuration, the Verona seats 32 passengers plus a miniature galley and a single lavatory just like its big brother, the Renova. The flight deck and cabin interiors are top-of-the-line and very modern. While having the luxurious interior comforts of the Renova, it has the quietness, eco-friendly performance, and versatility of the Orbit.

Verona 2-Class Configuration

Takeoff Field: 1,145 studs
Landing Field: 1,000 studs
Wingspan: 72 studs

If the fuselage had been designed without using The Lego Company’s 8-wide fuselage, it would have been designed as being 9 studs wide to provide a 3-across seating arrangement. With only 8 studs, however, the most that can be configured is a 2-across seating arrangement. Nevertheless, the Verona is very economically efficient for its size and provides more than enough cargo and passenger space to be considered a decent mid-range commercial aircraft.





The image below allows you to see how the Verona closes the gap between the Orbit and Renova:



How your airline will benefit by operating the NAIA Verona:

• Having a longer fuselage than the Orbit allows for more passenger capacity which equals more economical use for the airline and more comfort for each passenger.
• Turboprop engines instead of turbine engines reduce noise, ground maneuvering inconveniences, landing field length, and maintenance. They are also more eco-friendly and allow the aircraft to be more versatile in flight and on the ground.
• A sleek design reduces drag and boosts the Verona’s capabilities
• Its considerably small size enables a wide range of operation opportunities
• A T-tail configuration brings out maximum in-flight efficiency
• The Verona’s flight deck is not too difficult to learn so pilot training time and expenses are consequently reduced. The Verona features the most advanced electronics to date
• Automated heating and cooling systems allow safe operation through fog, dust, and ice
• Quick and easy production reduces delays and cuts roll-out prices, though aircraft are still carefully tested to ensure guaranteed quality
• Interior design is top-of-the-line with an enjoyable atmosphere for crew and passengers alike
• Improved safety features and technologies ensure the lives of all onboard at all times








Besides being an award-winner for performance and operational versatility, the NAIA Verona looks sexy and is fun to fly. Already, NAIA facilities are busy getting after their quota of ten aircraft a week as orders from airlines around Mikrosheison (the world in which Islandasia is situated) shoot up every day. Interestingly enough, the official airline of Islandasia, BriksAir – which is also a direct partner with NAIA – has shown no interest in the Verona. The airline CEO, Victor Cheats, explains that “BriksAir is already operating a handsome fleet of Orbits and Renovas and feels like it does not need to introduce a third medium-range aircraft. The Orbit and Renova are performing excellently for all our needs at present, and with our budget being as it is, extra airplanes are uncalled for.” Nevertheless, aviation enthusiasts and organizations in other places have been applauding the Verona and looks forward to seeing how it evolves.



Though the aircraft is not planned to branch out into shorter or longer variations, VIP configurations are in the design studio at this very time. Below is a typical commercial interior design:



Now you're envious of those who get to ride in Veronas, aren't you?






Since its release on April 2, 2011, the NAIA Verona has proved to be a very successful aircraft both in the Islandasia and international market. Though such 21st Century aircraft prove to be of little interest to planets outside Islandasia’s home planet of Mikrosheison, it is still regarded as a great achievement for the National Aerospace Intelligence Agency of Islandasia and looks forward to a bright and successful future.

Very nice, Stephen! Another great contribution to your impressive fleet of aircraft. I particularly like the (for a turbo prop) modern shape of the wing and the fact that the fuselage is looong (as for me,there´s something asthetic about long fuselages). Cool stuff! I suppose it´s one of your "archived" aircraft models from back in the day? BTW: Have you seen my newest aircraft model already - the one I posted in summer time around August? It´s the biggest one I ever build, a huge turbo prop freighter... Would love to show it to you - just have a look at my page: it´s my latest creation:)... I´m already building on my next, much smaller model again. Best regards, Steffen

Quoting Maxim Schupack great plane :D NAIA really makes great airplanes, and it looks like a solid addition to the family. I understand Bricksair's concern over too many types of planes in the fleet, but with the same seating capacity as the Renova, and nearly the same range and speed, it might be worth a shot for the future to reduce prices. Anyway, great job NAIA, I hope this plane goes on to become a success among airlines and passengers :)
Thanks, Maxim! I appreciate your involved comments. I like your new home page, by the way! ~ Stephen
