Carenado's addition of the Piper PA-46-350P Malibu Mirage to their stunning HD Series should get X-Plane users exited, as it is just for them. This revitalized model is compatible with versions of X-Plane 10.21 and higher, both 64 and 32 bit, and is available now as an immediate download. Since this add-on is specifically for X-Plane, Carenado haven't had to sacrifice anything to make sure that the package works with multiple platforms. This means that what you are getting, is exactly what Carenado envisioned.
The beautifully crafted model can be painted in one of five clean and stylish liveries, each offering something a little bit different. There is also a blank texture for you to use as a template and it, of course, boasts the same high quality as the included liveries. The exterior of the model is assisted by an advanced HDR lighting system that brings all the textures to life, creating a compelling visual experience before you even get off the ground. While the volumetric propeller effect adds further depth and realism to the aircraft when in flight.
There are some special touches that go a long way to creating a truly immersive experience. Everything from animated pilots, fully articulated tray tables and cabin lights that can be turned on and off independently. So many things are in place that give you the tools to achieve incredibly realistic and atmospheric flights, based on your own preferences. You can even choose to customize some of the visuals, with a panel that allows you to adjust window transparency, instrument reflections and static elements.
Inside the virtual cockpit, realistic lighting plays out across the panel and 3D gauges, creating a comfortable and genuine cockpit experience. This is heightened by an original and high quality digital stereo sound set, recorded directly from the real aircraft, which is about as true-to-life as you can get. These recordings translate very well to the X-Plane environment, both inside and outside the aircraft. They are perfectly matched to the feel and performance of this Malibu Mirage, which has been tested by real pilots to ensure the accuracy of the flight dynamics, and the authenticity of the flight experience.
