Released now for FSX is this stunning Piper PA-28-181 Archer II add-on from Carenado. Again, Carenado have released a full featured, highly detailed aircraft with no lack in features and functionality. This aircraft features an amazing 3D virtual cockpit, which is fully interactive. An amazing 8 paints have been included with different configurations. The aircraft also features an advanced GPS system. Animations are enabled on many external features including ailerons, elevators, rudder, flaps, trim tab, rotating wheels and many more.

This file released by the software development company Carenado, a company well known for creating high-quality computer aircraft identical to the real plane. This Piper plane features an unbelievably detailed three-dimensional cockpit view which is 100 percent interactive.

The animations on the outside of the aircraft are impeccable and parts including the elevators, rudder, flaps, trim tabs, ailerons and wheels all move. The doors, co-pilot seat, sun visor, and antenna are animated as well.

These high-quality software graphics are what Carenado does so well, and it shows on this Piper. Glimmering nightlights and light effects on the aircraft's gauges make for a fantastically realistic cockpit view from inside the plane. The cockpit can also be viewed from outside the aircraft thanks to this plane's completely transparent windows.

The most astounding thing about this aircraft is the eight different paint configurations that you can apply to the airplane body. Not just 8 different colors, but different stripes, spats and decals as well. This Piper plane isn't just all about the fantastic looks either. This plane behaves incredibly realistically when compared to the actual Piper Archer II, and the weight and balance are dead on.

All of these components combined make for an incredible Flight Simulator X experience. The visuals are highly detailed and concise which provide a stunning graphical experience, paired with great gameplay to give you the best aviation experience you can possibly get by sitting on the couch.

Review

"Shadows and nightlight effects on the aircraft and panel are very realistic, and very well done. As you turn the aircraft, shadows will shine across your panel, and at night the light will reflect as well. The night textures are very well done, the gauges look great both in the daytime and at night with the lights on. The package does come with a very well done set of checklists which come straight out of a POH out of the real aircraft that you can hit every single step with." - SimReviewsGA

Very realistic. Flies pretty much like the real thing - which I have flown a few times - mostly fly my Cessna 150. The perspective in the VC is very comfortable. Throttle response and flap reaction on landing is close to real - good for landing practice.

Another nice plane but it would be better if it had the autopilot feature.
