Updated vFlyteAir Piper Cherokee 140

VFlyteAir-Cherokee-140Walker from vFlyteAir is pleased to inform you that they have released a so called maintenance update version 1.1 of the Piper Cherokee 140 models. This maintenance release fixes a few bugs and adds a couple of user-suggested features.

Just in case you’ve lost control … the ORIGINAL Cherokee model is a replica of N3466K, which is an airplane that I occasionally fly here in Texas. It is a basic trainer airplane with VFR-only instrument panel. We think that student pilots and VFR pilots will enjoy this model. It challenges X-Plane pilots to practice their pilotage and VFR navigation skills. The CLASSIC Cherokee model is based on the same airframe and engine, but the panel is IFR-capable, and it has a simulated STEC 55X autopilot. The CLASSIC version can perform ILS and GPS/RNAV approaches on autopilot, as well as follow flight plans entered on the default X-Plane g430 GPS.

There’s lots of great features with both of these airplanes, including a plug-in driven customized engine startup feature – when the engine oil temperature is cold, it takes longer to start the engine. If the engine is warm or hot, it starts much easier. More information can be found at the dedicated vFlyteAir web page.

vFlyteAir Cirrus

impression_vflyteair_sr20I’d never heard of the Cirrus SR20, but this latest model from vFlyteAir got my attention. Your personal reporter Angelique tried to explore this gorgeous looking model, but how does it fly and how does it feel.

According to Angelique “What else can we say about the latest vFlyteAir Cirrus SR20 X-Plane 10 model? Quite simply – extraordinary 3D aircraft modeling. It’s really 3D modeling at a high level. And not only does the the 3D modeling looks gorgeous, also the included liveries and then in particular the unbelievable eye for tiny details. As known from previous vFlyteAir models, decals are razor sharp and not only from a distance, but also when zoomed in.”

Nice talk, but now back to reality .. how is it? You can read all about it via this in-depth impression link. Feedback is as usual always welcome!
