This is my first purchase for FSX. I am relatively new to simulators but this aircraft seems to be good quality. My only criticism is i wish the text on guages was a bit more visible, you can see the data when your mouse hovers over the gauge anyways. There are higher quality versions of this aircraft but i think this one has the best impact for your dollar. I installed this on my FSX steam edition and it worked perfectly and was easy to install.
I'm a student pilot flying the DA20. This model a good aid to prepare my flight lessons. It has about the same behavior of the real airplane. I use to spend some time getting used to the pattern and using a good real terrain scenery and the add on's for the airports in the area I'm able to plan my next VFR cross country. I recommend it. Browsing around you can also find a better price.
