Complete description of the features
Developed by real pilots
Our team is made by real pilots that put their own flight experience into the code they write.
Ultra Realistic flight and ground dynamics
The native flight dynamics are tweaked and a custom flight dynamics engine is replacing
part of the internal X-Plane engine in order to enhance the realism of the simulation. This
provides realistic speeds and fuel consumptions at every power setting and the correct
drag during the landing gear operation. Also, the aircraft needs the correct distances to
takeoff and land and reaches the correct vertical speed during climb.
New in v1.0.2! The ground dynamics are enhanced by a realistic cross wind behavior and
a custom steering wheel that recreates the real Cessna spring loaded nose wheel. You
have to use the differential braking to correctly steer the aircraft on the ground.
Realistic airplane systems
This software simulates almost all the on-board systems that you may find in the real
Among the other systems, this software includes a realistic simulation of the engine in all
its parts (oil system included), the landing gear, the electrical and the oxygen systems.
New in v2.0.0! Interactive pre-flight checklist and walkaround
Do your ground pre-flight checks using the interactive walkround module. Check the
wheel status, the elevators, the aileron and the rudder. Remove the choks and the tiedowns.
New in 2.0.0! Towing system
Tow your airplane in and out of the hangar or move it along the airport using the
integrated towing system. A towing bar will help you steering the nose wheel.
If you are a reckless flier you will experience many failures based on the real Pilot's
The software will also teach you how to avoid those failures through many custom
messages that may be shown during the flight.
If you install HeadShake v1.5 or higher in your system, it will communicate with REP to
extend the simulation realism.
REP will drive HeadShake to simulate the vibrations of the real TSIO-520 engine. Using
this, you will be able to run the engine at the most comfortable RPMs.
A popup kneeboard is shown using a mouse gesture. It contains the normal operation
and the emergency checklists as well as the airplane performance charts useful to plan
Weight & Balance tool
Thanks to the W&B tool, you can load your airplane in the most realistic way, checking
that the plane's weight and center of gravity are within limits. The changes affect the way
the airplane flies.
The airplane saves its state and restore it when you restart the simulator.
For instance, after loading your airplane into X-Plane, it will have a warm engine
depending on how much time has passed from the last session.
You can perform the maintenance of your aircraft using the included maintenance tool
(also called Hangar View) by changing the oil, checking the cylinders status, recharging
the battery and many other actions.
Realistic sounds set
Feel the wind flowing around the fuselage, the landing wheels screech during an hard
landing, the brakes squeaking and many more. The included sounds are recorded onboard
a real aircraft.
Learn more about the C210 thanks to the in-flight, non invasive tips that tell you when
you're doing something wrong and suggest you how to fix the problem.
Custom settings window
A settings window allows you to enable or disable some of the software's features.
And much more...
