A brand-new addition to the fleet, the Ikarus C42C is a very popular ultra-light trainer built in Germany. Modeled from the real-world D-MYSF, which our very own Mario Donick flies for his student pilot training! Almost 100 original sound recordings were made from D-MYSF to create a highly immersive FMOD sound experience for this model. Two models are included; the "Basic Trainer" is a replica of the real D-MYSF - it has a basic VFR panel and is perfect for practicing your pilotage skills and visual navigation. The "Full Panel" version adds a simulated flymap L glass panel display with a simple GPS flight planner, artificial horizon and moving-map display. Also included with the Full Panel version is a transponder and simulated FLARM traffic monitor.
The Ikarus C42C is classified in the USA as a Light Sport Aircraft and in Europe as an UltraLight aircraft. The fabric-covered wings and empennage are semi-transparent, and the model has great PBR texture effects throughout. Be sure to try the Pre-Flight Inspection walk-around with interactive check lists!

Cirrus SR20 for X-Plane 11
Now updated to version 2.6, the SR20 is even better with Virtual Reality support! Compatible with X-Plane 11.10 or newer (VR requires X-Plane 11.20b3 or newer), the new version has custom airfoils, propeller and flight modeling by Alan Shafto of AeroSimGaming. New FMOD sounds and PBR textures provide the best in X-Plane 11 realism! The electrical system is modeled per the Cirrus SR20 POH electrical schematic. Click on the screen shot at left to view the full gallery.
The SR20 model features a glass panel instrumentation modeled after the Perspective (tm) system found in the real Cirrus SR20 . The Perspective system is an adaptation of the Garmin G1000 display. This simulation has many working features, and was created by Mario Donick. Version 2.5 added limited support for choosing procedures (SIDs, STARs and Approaches). The moving map display is now more readable with larger icons and text labels.
Piper Arrow III
Recently updated to version 5.1, the Arrow III is now compatible with X-Plane 11.20b3 or newer for Virtual Reality flight!. The Arrow III now features a "convertible" instrument panel - choose between the traditional analog instrument panel or fly with the simulated Aspen EFD 1000 glass panel (by Mario Donick). You can even change panels on the fly! We also provide compatibility with RealityXP's GNS430 and GTN650 plugins (requires separate purchase from Reality-xp.com).
A new menu system allows you choose Options, set up the airplane Weight & Balance, and use interactive, automated Check Lists. Your options and preferences are saved each time you fly, and they are restored the next time you fly the Arrow III.
Piper Cherokee 140 Triple Pack - Original Panel, Classic Panel and Glass Panel
Our Piper Cherokee 140 model includes three different instrument panels; the Original Panel is modeled from my real-world Piper trainer, tail number N3466K. It is a basic VFR trainer with near-original instrumentation. The Classic Panel adds more modern instrumentation and an autopilot. The Glass Panel version features a simulated Aspen EFD 1000 EFIS and also includes an autopilot and GPS. Choose the one that's right for your mission.
Special features include:
- Interactive kneeboard that allows you to choose your options and settings
- "Save-State" functionality - Your settings and switches, doors, etc. are saved each time you fly the Cherokee 140, and are restored the next time you fly
A real classic, the Grumman Tiger saw some service in military operations early in its history and was later redesigned for civilian service. The Tiger was an evolution of the Grumman AA-5 model (see the Traveler below). It is a low-wing, fixed-pitch propeller airplane with a sliding canopy. The Tiger was first produced in 1974 as a 1975 model. Shown at left is the original livery specially designed for the Tiger when it was first released to the public.
The Tiger has an STEC System 30 autopilot integrated into the Turn Coordinator insrument, Garmin 430 GPS (X-Plane), custom Garmin GTX327 transponder, custom TerraNAV OBS, Directional Gyro, Artificial Horizon and a custom JPI EDM 700 Engine Monitor.
With hi-res textures and highly detailed animations and modeling, the Tiger is a real joy to fly. We modeled the Tiger partially from a real-world example located in Texas.
The little sister to the Grumman Tiger, the Traveler AA-5 was itself an evolution of the American Aviation two-seat AA-1 Yankee. First produced in 1971, the Traveler was soon sold to Grumman Aircraft. Originally intended to be a competitor to the Cessna 172 as a trainer aircraft, the Traveler did not enjoy the same success as the 172. The Traveler was known to be too "hot" for student pilots, and required more attention to energy management, especially on landings.
The Traveler's instrument panel includes the usual required six-pack gauge cluster, along with an autopilot, ADF, Directional Gyro, transponder, DME, COM1 and COM2, and NAV1 radios.
