The Malibu Mirage is one of those aircraft names that just sticks in the mind Ė and no wonder. When you see this thing in the air for the first time youíll likely be very impressed at the speed and consistency that it can pick up despite the fact that it does not look like much. Also, itís been the skies for not too far off 30 years so it really is no surprise that the Malibu Mirage is starting to look a little dated.

That being said, itís still one of the most enjoyable flights you can take on thanks to the ease of flying it Ė itís a real pilots dream. Itís light and nimble nature added into the fact that it only uses one engine and five passengers means that you can easily pick up a fair amount of speed here, whilst also ensuring that the Malibu sticks with the tried and tested piston engine style.

It was first released in 1999 and from then on has become a rather popular member of the light aircraft world, giving the Piper PA range another nice little aircraft to have on the market for domestic purchases and usage in various formats.

The Malibu Mirage itself was a huge hit when it first arrived thanks to their stunning design and their Ė at the time Ė innovative cockpit installations. Although today they are quite dated compared to more modern equivalents, the Piper company who create them sell an estimated 30 Malibu Mirage aircraft every year!

Whatís Included?

  • 5 high-definition liveries that we have built from scratch, ensuring that the whole thing looks exactly as it should and that the overall design and layout of the package is exactly what it should be, maximizing realism and authenticity

  • 2 unique models Ė one comes with just a single pilot on-board the aircraft, whilst the other includes a second pilot in with you. This helps you modify and change the look of the overall aircraft, making it look smarter and more attractive than it has in the past whilst also giving you plenty of choice

  • A range of awesome checklist pages and PDFs that make sure you will have no problem mastering the way that this hardware works, and also making sure that it can all come together and make you become a far more renowned pilot if given time

  • Various other PDF documents for things like recommended settings and other changes that may be implemented as time goes, making it easier for you to manage and control the aircraft whilst also ensuring that it has the level of performance and compatibility that you would have been hoping to have

Special Additions

  • Awesome 3D stereo sounds included and recorded from the real thing to make sure that your aircraft sounds Ėand looks Ė as realistic as it can, completing the experience for everyone

  • A rapid change of style and design throughout the package ensures that the lighting rendering system has been reworked, ensuring that landing, taxis, strobe and beacon lighting is all far more visible and effective than it was in the past

  • Dynamic shine effect created for the propellers, ensuring that it can come together and also to guarantee that it looks as effective as it can, maximizing its level of performance and also making the aircraft as believable as is possible

  • A GNS540 and GNS430 system is included with Reality XP integration, ensuring that you can get access to the brilliant Carenado systems that have been released in the past, ensuring that it all comes together and can help maximize efficiency

Key Features

  • 3D gauges that look awesome and manage to give you greater control over the aircraft in general, allowing you to get access to many of the more general features that less inclusive and detailed designs may have simply forgotten about including along the way with this package

  • HQ digital stereo sounds that sound great and give you a direct and effective way of flying with your aircraft, improving the overall feeling and realism of the experience. Likewise, it adds sounds that have been taken from the real thing so it sounds exactly as it should, maximizing the realism factor greatly

  • Cold and dark options for starting up the aircraft are included so that you can get an easy way to start your simulation, or indeed you can take things back and be more simplistic

  • Customizable panels are included, too, which make it really easy for you to manage the aircraft and to control things like the window transparency and the reflections on the instruments

  • Realistic behavior and strength when compared to the real thing, ensuring that it works due to the fact that it has been tested by real pilots across the board, giving it utter certainty

Expanding the catalog of available American light aircraft, Carenado now introduce the wonderful Malibu Mirage for use in our favorite flight simulators. This add-on package can be downloaded immediately by users of Microsoft Flight Simulator X and Prepar3D. The Malibu Mirage is a Piper PA-46 variant that was first introduced in 1988 and has since undergone numerous changes from a strengthened wing design, to a real glass windshield instead of an acrylic glass one, and the relocation of certain switches to the overhead console.

The finely sculpted 3D model mirrors its real life counterpart with finesse. The soft curves and narrow wings create an attractive and identifiable silhouette, and the level of detail that can be seen up close is quite remarkable. Made all the more impressive by high resolution (2048 x 2048) textures that provide more than just a lick of paint, but provide depth and detail that would be unachievable with lower resolution textures.

Each of the five different liveries included in this package are simple and stylish, with designs the flow with the shape of the aircraft in an humble fashion, and offer slight variations in color to suite a range of tastes. Intelligent alpha channel technology is used to create superb material shines and reflections that react to both aircraft lights and natural lights in a realistic manner. Likewise, the virtual cockpit is very well modeled, with numerous gauges, switches and readouts set against a cool gray panel.

With accurate reflections on the instruments and realistic night lights that create a soft orange glow around the panel, the cockpit can be both a bustling, active space, or a quiet, contemplative one.

In order to achieve maximum authenticity, the flight dynamics have been tested by real pilots; ensuring that performance and handling, as well as the weight and balance of the aircraft, feel as close to the real thing as possible. This extra effort is greatly appreciated, as it allows you to feel more so, the powerful 350hp engine in front of you.

Paired with an original digital sound set recorded live from the real thing, you're left with an incredibly atmospheric and inviting experience that you couldn't have with any other Malibu Mirage.
