OVERVIEW:

The Jack of All Trades and Master of All

The master of all trades? Well, perhaps that is a bit elaborate; however, the Cessna 182 is the proven master of a great many aeronautical “trades”, indeed. So, what are the “trades” that we want a General Aviation (GA) aeroplane to be the master of? Well, we want it to be fast, carry lots of fuel, people and baggage, climb well, stall gently, be easy to land and fly, be economical to operate and maintain, and generally be a safe and pleasant ride for us and our passengers -- that’s a lot to ask of one aeroplane. After all, the physical world is based upon compromise and give and take; what is gained here is lost there, etc. Because of this necessary compromise, when it comes to mastering all of these “trades”, virtually every aeroplane fails to make the grade. Some exhibit very high performance but are a handful to fly for the average pilot and others are as gentle as a puppy, but do not perform so well. That ubiquitous physical compromise is present in most instances.

Lycoming 540 engine

Most A&P mechanics refer to the Lycoming 540 as being “bulletproof.”  Consider that a Chevrolet big block in an early ‘70’s Corvette is 454 cubic inches, a Skyhawk’s engine is either 320 or 360 cubic inches (like small automobile V-8).  The Skylane engine is 541.5 cubic inches, which is bigger than the previously mentioned Chevy big block.   I have the same engine in my Comanche, and you feel this 50% bigger engine under the hood, just rumbling and rattling, waiting to be opened up on takeoff.  We expanded Accu-Sim to capture the more aggressive nature of operating such a nice and powerful GA engine.

Constant speed prop - propeller physics

We upgraded the propeller physics for the Skylane in several areas.  This was necessary to deliver the best experience when operating this new system.  For example, many people don’t realize that a 2-blade propeller will generally cruise faster than a 3-blade at all but the very highest altitudes (and I’m talking where oxygen is required).  The Skylane manual is based on the 3-blade, so you can squeeze out even more speed by using a 2-blade.   The high cruise is just around 167 mph with a 3-blade, and around 170 mph with a 2-blade (keep in mind every plane will have slightly different cruise speeds, which speaks to the uniqueness of each airframe, engine, and prop).  However, the 3-blade propeller will, in general, pull harder off the line and perform better in steep climbs.  We also improved the modeling and sound of the propeller when it both flattens out and cuts into the air, which is most noticeable during prop checks on the ground.

Cruise management – beyond the book

This was an unexpected, but pleasant discovery when making the Skylane:  Our cruise performance accuracy actually exceeds the pilot’s manual.  Yes, we’re actually better than “by the book.”  This is because some figures in the POH are calculated / estimated.  For example, in Accu-Sim, you can realize the benefits of flying at lower RPM’s with higher manifold pressure, or “over square” (higher manifold pressure X 100 than RPM).  Some pilot’s are still being told today that running a modern GA engine over square is bad, which is a technique recommended on some older, larger radial engines of the past.  The fact is that most engines run better and more efficient at lower RPM and higher manifold pressure, rather than high RPM and low manifold pressure (just make sure you follow the guidelines in the pilot’s handbook for the airplane).  Accu-Sim models this efficiency, and we confirmed this on our actual flight tests.  So, you will be experiencing the same differences from the POH with Accu-Sim than with the actual airplane.  You will also find yourself thinking hard about your mixture, how it affects your cruise performance, temperatures, economy, etc., just like in the real aircraft.  Just make sure, any real world pilots out there reading this that you follow the recommended cruise settings for your airplane because there is a limit to how much manifold pressure you are able to use at certain a RPM.  Also, some engines require you to avoid certain power settings / RPM ranges due to vibration and balance issues.  There is no one size fits all approach, but this Accu-Sim Skylane will certainly help both pilots and sim enthusiasts learn better flying skills and engine management practices.

Cowl flaps and advanced combustion physics

We further researched and developed engine temperatures, both cylinder head and exhaust gas temps.  We also re-formulated the impact of mixture on the process and temperatures.

Expanded physical sound

The starter physics, engine starts, shutdowns, and in flight physics are pushed even further.  Try playing with the throttle, or kicking the rudder at speed or doing a prop check.  It’s a world of wonderful physics that drives our sound engine.

Hand towing

We added a new feature, turning your flight stick or yoke into a tow bar.  It really gives the feel you are moving a large plane around, and you can put it exactly where you want it, however you wish.  Our own Captain Jake said the other day “This towing is fun!”  That’s a good sign coming from a 14 year old.

ADDITIONAL FEATURES:

  • A true propeller simulation.
  • Experience the world’s most popular high performance GA airplane.
  • Designed for both professional commercial pilot training and entertainment.
  • Immersive pre-flight inspection system designed by pilots while operating the actual Cessna 182.
  • Electric starter with accurate cranking power.
  • Dynamic ground physics including both hard pavement and soft grass modeling.
  • Primer-only starts are now possible. Accu-Sim monitors the amount of fuel injected and it’s effectiveness to start and run the engine.
  • Persistent airplane where systems, corrosion, and temperatures are simulated even when the computer is off.
  • Immersive in-cockpit, physics-driven sound environment from A2A engineered recordings.
  • Complete maintenance hangar internal systems and detailed engine tests including compression checks.
  • Piston combustion engine modeling. Air comes in, it mixes with fuel and ignites, parts move, heat up, and all work in harmony to produce the wonderful sound of a Lycoming 360 engine.  Now the gauges look beneath the skin of your aircraft and show you what Accu-Sim is all about.
  • Authentic Bendix King Avionics stack including the KMA 26 Audio Panel, two KX 155A NAV/COMMS, KR 87 ADF, KT 76C Transponder, KN 62A DME, and KAP 140 Two Axis Autopilot with altitude pre-selection.
  • Three in-sim avionics configurations including no GPS, GPS 295, or the GNS 400.  Built-in, automatic support for 3rd party GNS 430 and 530.
  • As with every A2A aircraft, it is gorgeously constructed, inside and out, down to the last rivet.
  • Designed and built to be flown "By The Book."
  • Visual Real-Time Load Manager, with the ability to load fuel, people, and baggage in real-time.
  • Four naturally animated passengers that can sit in any seat including the pilot’s.
  • 3D Lights 'M' (built directly into the model).
  • Pure3D Instrumentation now with natural 3D appearance with exceptional performance.
  • A total audible cockpit and ound engineered by A2A sound professionals.
  • In cockpit pilot's map for handy in-flight navigation.
  • Authentic fuel delivery includes priming and proper mixture behavior.  Mixture can be tuned by the book using the EGT or by ear.  It’s your choice.
  • All models include A2A specialized materials with authentic metals, plastics, and rubber.
  • Airflow, density and its temperature not only affect the way your aircraft flies, but how the internal systems operate.
  • Real-world conditions affect system conditions, including engine temperatures.
  • Spark plugs can clog and eventually foul if the engine is allowed to idle too low for too long. Throttling up an engine with oil-soaked spark plugs can help clear them out.
  • Overheating can cause scoring of cylinder head walls which could ultimately lead to failure if warnings are ignored and overly abused
  • Engine, airframe, cockpit panel and individual gauges tremble from the combustion engine.
  • Authentic drag from the airframe and flaps
  • System failures, including flaps that can independently jam or break based on the actual forces put upon them. If you deploy your flaps at too high a speed, you could find yourself in a very dangerous situation.
  • Authentic battery. The battery capacity is based on temperature. The major draw comes from engine starting.
  • Oil pressure system is affected by oil viscosity (oil thickness). Oil viscosity is affected by oil temperature. Now when you start the engine, you need to be careful to give the engine time to warm
  • Eight commercial aviation sponsors have supported the project including Phillips 66 Aviation, Champion Aerospace, and Knots2u speed modifications.

VOIE BLEU - EBCI CHARLEROI BRUSSELS SOUTH P3DV4
MICHAEL SIMON
Excellent! Very realistic! The frame rate is better on this version than on the previous! The new terminal (T2) is there and is very beautiful! This product really deserves 5 stars!
MWP PROJECTS - X ATMOENGINE XP11
TS Brady
I'm not impressed. The water looks horrible, much prefer XP11 default. The clouds are nice, better than XP11 default, but the sky is too misty/foggy. Almost every weather situation, except clear skies give a very hazy sky. The price isn't bad, but I'm underwhelmed by what you get. In fact, I've uninstalled X AtmoEngine end re-installed SkyMaxx Pro v4.
SKY SIMULATIONS - MCDONNELL DOUGLAS DC-9 P3D
raul romero
DO NOT BUY! Less than 30 min into it and all ready want a refund. Virtua-
l cockpit visual quality is from like fs9 era. click on any circuit breaker and other switches move. left click does nothing on some switches but on other does something. 3 position switches move like they are 2 position switches. Same cockpit sound ALL the time regardless of power input or stage of flight. Extrem-
ely not satisfied with this product. Should be a Freeware in my opinion.
MWP PROJECTS - ATMOENGINE PLUGIN P3D4
Tristan Hancock
Everything looks really nice, but I am most definitely NOT noticing an FPS Boost, the opposite infact. For the first time my fps tend to go and remain under 20 fps in certain situations.(i7--
7700k @ 4.5Ghz + GTX1080).

wow what a huge difference from v1 .Flytampa is awesome,other developers should upgrade their products like this.
FSXCENERY - KROC GREATER ROCHESTER AIRPORT FSX P3D
Robert Miller
This airport is now out of date due to the renovations that completed late 2018. Before that, the airport itself was okay, but the surrounding "photoreal" region is blurry and the autogen seems to be non-existent. In fact it is flat land all around the airport and then the default autogen pops in about 3 miles away from the airport. Als-
o, progressive taxi does not appear to work with the airport. This doesn't affect me that much as I know the airport layout well, but those unfamiliar may have a difficult time taxiing to the 3 runways. I'v-
e tried contacting the developer to help with both the autogen and progressive taxi issue on 1/5 and was told that they were taking a MONTH off for Christmas vacation and said they would contact me when they got back. I emailed them again on 2/5 and have still yet to hear back (and have a feeling I won't). Save your money and don't get this airport, even on sale - you'll just end up disabling the scenery like I did.
FLYTAMPA - VIENNA LOWW V.2 FSX P3D FS2004
Gregory Verba
Another great airport from Flytampa. The detailing level is very good. Seasonal ground changes, dynamic lighting, sode implementation adds huge amount of immersion. The scenery highly optimized and performance is on the top.
FSDG - CAPE TOWN FSX P3D
Gregory Verba
It is my first FSDG scenery and I am totally surprised regarding high level of details. The scenery detailing is great. Performance optimization is very good (tested with p3d v4.4). Sode jetways and animation working flawlessly. I give it solid 5 star. Highly recommended!
AEROSOFT - MEGA AIRPORT PRAGUE FSX P3D
Gregory Verba
I didn't have any issues with installer like other users had. The installation process was fast and worked flawlessly. Although the scenery itself is very good and performance is great, I cannot give it 5 stars mainly because of some textures level and lack of sode implementation.
