Piper PA-32 Saratoga II TC for FSX/P3D5 reviews
At SimShack, we have a huge wealth of different products available to help magnify your experience when using flight simulation software. The main thing that gets people involved in the flight simulation experience is the immense levels of fun that it provides, but also the educational aspect. However, the limitations of the vanilla flight simulators available for personal use mean that you can’t get the volume of control required with many of the aircraft provided to begin with. However, with the help of a fervent community that love to create more realistic and challenging variations of aircraft already in the game – or introduced for the first time – you can enjoy a far more enjoyable version of the flight simulation experience.

This recreation of the Piper PA-32 by Alabeo is a hugely acclaimed part of our packages, due to the incredible popularity of the Piper over the years. With six seats inside and an extremely spacious and comfortable interior in general, it fits well with the classy exterior of the aircraft, and it’s finely balanced levels of performance. Inspired by the Piper Lance, it was released in 1975 and to this day you can still find some for sale across the globe. However, they were officially discontinued in 2009 and no more were created.
In this package, you gain access to the most realistic representation of the Piper PA-32 that there is out there on the web. With huge attention to detail paid to every last design aspect, from the shine on the wings to the way that the bolts sit in each part of the plane holding it all together, you get something that looks as close to the real thing as is possible. You’ll be receiving a fully functional and realistic version of this amazing aircraft, and as one of the most reputable of it’s kind during the 1970s you can really get that old-school feel when you take to the skies in the Piper PA-32.
Taking the same approach as other Alabeo add-ons in recent times, the interior has been recreated to true style. From the small cosmetic inclusions that have no bearing to the tiny creases in the leather on the seats, you get an authentic look at the interior of a Piper PA-32 up close and personally. Every single little feature inside has been included and everything also works to the degree that it should. Also included was a fine selection of different sound inclusions to give that realistic feel when you take to the skies in your stunning new aircraft.
You can utilize different camera views from inside the aircraft, as well. This lets you take the view as if you were in the passenger seats at the back as well as the traditional cockpit view, giving you maximum control over what you are up to while giving you full control over seeing the world outside transform in front of you. There has been a huge amount of work done to the exterior of the aircraft, as well.
Complete with various liveries to give you as many designs as possible, making sure that you will be flying an aircraft that feels right for you. Animations have also been remade and improved over the vanilla engine giving you a more realistic feeling aircraft as it touches down or indeed takes off from where you are starting from. It’s the small additions that help this package really stand out but it’s something that really helps enthusiasts of this great aircraft try it out in the most authentic environment that you are likely to find for a flight simulation tool.

Also includes full integration with Flight1 GTN 750 as well as Reality XP GNS530 to maximize your flight capabilities and ensure that you get the full experience that you intended for when you first fired up your flight simulator. Please note that the systems noted above are sold separately from this package, and need to be acquired separately
Customized sound packages included to give you that authentic feeling when you take to the skies – all sounds were recorded from real audio of a Piper-PA32 so you aren’t just flying with authentic stock sounds, you are flying with a genuinely realistic appraisal of what the brilliant PA-32 would have sounded like!
Volumetric side-view prop effect provided to give you that amazing view of the model, so that you can take in all of the tiny changes included. Huge graphical re-workings have been put in place to make sure that this looks the best that it possibly can without ever taking away from the quality of your flight experience – every feature has been added for a reason, and to help finish the experience
Reflections shine off of your gauges in the cockpit which gives you an even higher level of quality than ever before – now you can feel the cockpit react and change around you as the direction that fly in and time of day changes. Watch the entire world around your aircraft match what you are seeing inside with a realistic recreation of what an aircraft looks like in flight
Window scratches have been included to help finish off the immense quality of the 3D models and textures provided. This helps everything look as real as it possibly can, with hours’ worth of footage looked over and recreated to get the finest possibly quality of model for the Piper PA-32. This makes flying easier than ever before as the aircraft looks just as you would imagine it to in real-life
Realistic attributes and behavior have been assigned to the aircraft so that it flies just like the real thing. This helps every other feature and graphical addition come together to make the most complete and user-friendly equivalent of the Piper PA-32 available on the web. Everything has been re-created to the official standards used, so your aircraft is as powerful as the real-thing

My Buddy owns this plane and i fly it pretty often with him in the right seat. Very realistic however the fuel flow is off and gear down speed is too low we put gear down at 135 kts. Steve can you share how you fixed that in the aircraft.cfg?
there is a elevator trim wheel. its between the seats. if you look down from the right seat view you will see it which is realistic since you will only use the wheel if you are flying from the right seat other wise you would adjust your trim on the yoke

A good handling plane but it does have a couple of issues. Landing gear damage occurs at incorrect speeds due to errors in the aircraft.cfg file. Fortunately I was able to find a remedy on the web.
Also, there is no elevator trim wheel & I have found no way to check the trim setting. There is a Trim on/off switch but it isn't modeled. If you know where trim settings can be checked, please leave a note.

I thought this plane looked good at first, but when I installed it the entuire instrument panel went invisible man on me, the mixture said" hell no im out of here" and its stuck at cut, BUT THE BEST OF ALL, the elevators while in Virtual Cockpit view said "I call this little manuever MCAS" where it is stuck in the full down pitch position.
