For a truly great model of the Piper PA-44 Seminole, you need look no further than this very add-on, brought to us by WSSimulation. Designed specifically for Microsoft's Flight Simulator X, this add-on utilizes its strong foundation and quality of materials to deliver a very realistic product. This American made twin-engined, light aircraft is great fun to fly and works very well as a trainer aircraft both in real life and in simulated environments like FSX.
The high quality exterior model of the Seminole, made using Gmax, is a very faithful rendition of its real life counterpart, with subtle curves and accurate panels. High definition textures and intelligent maps bring the visual fidelity up to the next level and make the visual experience all the more appealing. Taking this even further are the wide range of animations, everything from flaps to rudders and landing gear, that add some more life to what would otherwise be a very pretty but very static aircraft. As great as it looks, its also a comfort to know that great visuals are not coming at a cost of decreased performance; meaning there wont be any drops in your frame rates.
The 3D virtual cockpit is also very impressive with just as many, if not more animations than the external model. Adorned with numerous levers and electrical switches, this fully interactive cockpit environment offers your biggest hit of realism, as all knobs and switches are controlled just like they would be in a real Seminole, making it the perfect add-on for multi-engined flight training. A unique night light effect adds another level of realism to the cockpit and makes it even more immersive during night flights.
Aircraft characteristics are also accurate, bringing the Seminoles amiable nature and steady performance into the simulated environment. Paired with a PDF user manual that contains real information regarding checklists and panel controls, this aircraft becomes suitable for absolutely anyone to start training in. A strong sound pack acts as the glue that holds all the other parts together, turning good standalone elements into a smooth and highly polished aircraft that anyone can enjoy.
