P-3 Peregrine Narrow-body Jetliner . Kasteleiner Aircraft & Aerospace Industries proudly presents its newest airliner, a highly efficient, sleek, narrow-body trijet. As the direct successor of the P-1 Falcon, my first airliner, the Peregrine is named after the Peregrine Falcon, or Peregrine, which is believed to be the fastest flying bird in the world.

As all my other models, the P-3 has a fully equipped interior (detailed cockpit for two pilots & 28 passenger seats in the cabin), retractable landing gear and movable control surfaces (flaps, rudder, and for the first time a horizontal stabilizer which entirely trims as well).
My goal was to make a beautiful, clean airframe with clear lines.
For the third engine, I incorporated an S-duct, with the engine inlet converging into the vertical stabilizer.
A lot of the inspiration came from the somewhat smaller, real-world Dassault Falcon 7X (for the stabilizers), and partly from Yakovlev's Yak-42 airliner (two substantial, 4-wheeled main gear segments).
