With a rich history and a truly intriguing style in terms of flight and design, you can now take to the skies with stunning realism and efficiency. Within this pack, you will receive both the aircraft itself - the Cessna 182 Skylane - as well as the associated ACCU-SIM expansion pack for Microsoft Flight Simulator X and Prepar3D. Giving you unprecedented control and style in the skies, the Cessna 182 experience is made even sweeter with the expansion pack provided alongside.
The Perfect Aircraft
Known for its huge versatility and style, the Cessna 182 has served many purposes over the years. It's a master of many aviation trades, being used for anything from the fast and safe transport of goods to acting as a quality transport plane. It's extremely safe, very quick, nimble, and steady when in the air - therefore it makes an extremely pleasant and enjoyable ride as you float through the skies unopposed. The main power when it comes to the brilliant Cessna 182, though, is the fact that it provides you with such incredible balance. Many people want to fly an aircraft that's got a little bit of everything - the Cessna 182 delivers this in spades.
While many aircraft is a master of a certain specification, the Cessna 182 can provide high performance in just about any environment. This means that pilots can learn a variety of different tasks and styles to broaden their horizons using the extremely user-friendly Cessna. When it comes to using this in FSX/P3D, you get an incredibly balanced and accurate representation of this excellent plane. The solid structure matched with the excellent quality of engineering creates a highly desirable aircraft that can be used time and time again across as many different tasks as possible.
Taking into account the sheer power and quality of the Lycoming 540 engine used within the aircraft, we utilized the power of Accu-Sim to really revitalize the aircraft and make it fly as comfortably and realistically as possible. This is an aircraft known for producing an incredibly balanced power, while still containing a lot of power and aggression in the speed and velocity of its movement. This gives you a genuinely realistic recreation of the aircraft so that you are able to take the aircraft to its very limits, providing far more scope for realism than ever before when using a virtual Cessna 182.
Accu-Sim allows the levels to be pushed to a higher level, giving you a far more authentic representation of the flight process in general. One area that is extremely noticeable is with the physics of the aircraft, specifically in the propellers. Everything has been added in including the physics and sounds required to make your propellers look as realistic as possible, giving you an aircraft that feels like it's dealing with circumstances differently depending on the blade quantity of the rotors being used. This adds an even greater sense of realism and urgency to the flight experience.
One thing that you will notice, however, is that the virtual representation of the Skylane actually exceeds the real thing. Compare the manuals of the real thing with the manuals provided with this package. You will notice that there is even more optimism than there is in real life. The idea is to provide you with the perfect platform to go and develop your flying skills as quickly and rapidly as possible, giving you something that's far more authentic than ever before. Every last little attribute and format of the aircraft has been taken into account, giving you realistic performance at certain RPM rates, making sure that your flight feels even more compliant with the real thing.
We researched everything from typical engine temperatures to the cylinder head and exhaust gas temperatures. This means that everything can really feel as it would on the authentic representation, allowing anyone who is jumping from the real thing to the simulation to integrate as quickly and easily as possible.
Please be aware, though, that this is not suitable for use for professional training or development - everything you learn in here works in the simulator but requires professional training and understanding to do it properly in real life.
Key details were added as often as possible to make sure that the authenticity of the entire design was easy to see. Everything from the way that engines start to the physics of actually flying in the skies and how the Cessna would react in real life. While certain limitations still exist, everything that can be possibly implemented into FSX has been included for the finest possible handling and quality, regardless of what you are looking to do.
Genuine representation of the aircraft in every possible form - from the propellers being totally designed from scratch to included visual effects, this is the closest form of the Cessna 182 that you are going to find for FSX/P3D

Tune your aircraft's performance either by using the analysis programs or either by using your ears if you have that knack for judging an aircraft!
Every single detail has been included, whether it's the metals or plastics within the aircraft so that you can compare the closest details with the real thing to truly evaluate the quality and style
Realistic gauges that move and tremble to show you just where you are going at present, giving you a close idea of how much you actually have at the moment - this lets you balance the flight better just as you would need to do in real life
Realistic consequences for not flying the aircraft properly - if you put too much force into the flight or deploy your flaps at too high a speed, for example, you can find your aircraft in a perilous situation!
It's this length of features that make the aircraft really stand out from your typical system found for FSX/P3D. It allows people to grow and develop properly, ensuring that you have an aircraft that is going to give you the closest possible feeling how the real thing is going to feel is you ever step foot in one. Whether it's for enthusiasts or for professionals, you can get the closest possible feeling to what the real Cessna 182 provides you with.
It's an aircraft that has plenty of charm and quality about it and allows you to simulate as many possible outcomes as you wish. As we said, the aircraft is used for so many different jobs and tasks it's hard to tell if what you are flying is going to be the right thing for you individually! Use this simulation package to get yourself in the right frame of mind and experience to see what fits your skills most.

Purchased yesteday For me, there is a lack of documentation for this plane. Not a good manual at all! A very general one. Not a dedicated chapter about Autopilot, that is driving me crazy. On the other hand, independently of the payload, this planes always tends to go leftin any runway.... and also once it has taken off. Still have my doubts if I have invested my money properly...

Absolutely great guys. I actually own a 182 and honestly it is the best representation I have ever seen!!! Well done to all involved. Just one small issue with the cockpit audio not streaming through bluetooth but other than that, ten out of ten to all of you!!! Anyone interested, you can comfortably invest your hard earned cash in these products.

If I acquired the Skylane 182 Cessna simulation from A2A, it is on the one hand, because it offers exceptional quality, and on the other hand, The Simshack site remains one of the best price quality. The advantage of A2A Simulation, is no longer to demonstrate, and for the price, everyone finds his account.
