Here is the most highly detailed, accurate rendering of the futuristic Piaggio P180II. Great care has been taken in ensuring that fuselage profiles and general arrangement shapes are true to original.

The landing gear operation is highly realistic and detail extends to brake-lines and electrical connections. Landing lights extend and retract and the unique canard forward flap system is authentically modelled and animated.
Luggage hatches open and close as does the port engine cover which conceals a fully-modeled turboprop engine complete with big bore exhaust pipe, hydraulic and electrical lines and more.

The pilots are uniquely modelled with realistic features and life-like movements and the passenger cabin comes complete with passengers(*).
The cockpit is a work of art in its own right. Numerous complex systems and fittings have been modelled in and rendered with texture art that really brings the Virtual Cockpit alive(*). Glass cockpit arrays and flight consoles bristle with switches and knobs that are great to look at and function like the real thing.

The Flight Management Computer is there and allows inputs for flight-planning.

Piaggio P180II Avanti is exciting and challenging to fly and will bring many hours of flight simulation enjoyment!

AIRCRAFT BACKGROUND (courtesy Piaggio Aero)

The P180 Avanti II combines elegant Made-in-Italy style, the quietness and comfort of a spacious cabin, and remarkable performance that is similar to that of the most widely sold turbojet aircraft on the market. With its outstanding integration of advanced technological solutions and standard equipment offering time-tested operational efficiency, the P180 Avanti II combines superior performance with the very highest levels of reliability and safety.

Cockpit & Avionics 

High technology means safety and efficiency. That's why the P180 Avanti II is equipped with the Collins Pro Line 21 digital avionics suite, which is completely integrated with the aircraft's navigation and communication systems, and is certified for full IFR use - even with a single pilot.
Aerodynamics Background  

Every component and system in the P180 Avanti II is carefully crafted to provide the highest levels of efficiency and safety under all flight conditions. But the real key to its success is an advanced design with many innovative solutions, the most important of which is the Three-Lifting-Surface Configuration. The forward wing of the aircraft (which cannot be called a true "canard" because it lacks control surfaces) contributes to lift, since it is a fixed surface, and is equipped with high lift devices that move together with the flaps on the main wing. The pitch angle of the forward wing is configured so that it always stalls before the main wing. The resulting automatic nose-down effect assures excellent behaviour at high angles of attack. The forward wing has a negative dihedral (~ 5 degrees) to keep its stream wash away from the engine intakes, the main wing and the horizontal stabilizer. Thanks to the aerodynamic advantages resulting from the aircraft's innovative design and construction, the airflow is laminar over a very high percentage of the wing chord. What's more, the push configuration of the propellers prevents propeller turbulence from interfering with wing aerodynamics, which effectively lowers total drag and provides performance that is significantly higher than in aircraft with pull propellers.

Comment to my previuous review OF course, as usual, the screenshots DO NOT capture the real work done
SWISSMILSIM - DE HAVILLAND VAMPIRE DH-100 MSFS

Those who criticise the looks have no idea what they are talking about while i'm not a pilot i have sat in a real vampire and the cockpit was just how it was in the real world, i also see no problems with the texturing and quality on the exterior model either, and while i have seen a few planes textured a little better they in no way deserve your crummy 1 star. The external textures are part of the livery and could be improved by other textures if they get made anyway.. That all being said i do have some issues, the documentation while good can be a little confusing in its wording i am guessing this maybe a language translation issue i would also for this price hoped it would come with a few different versions and some historical liveries like raf. After shutting down ambient sounds vanish which is a little weird and there is no sound difference between canopy open and closed The labels in the cockpit are German? while i hate to be arrogant most simmers speak English and English is the international language of aviation so would have been nice to have them in English .apart from those which are minor the plane is great to fly and the sound of the Goblin Engine is amazing. i found it pretty tricky to land getting the speed right i also found it very easy to spin and i haven't been able to recover from it maybe its me or maybe its unrecoverable i have no idea if the real one was so easy to spin also that engine blows up a lot so need to keep the throttle down out of the red all in all a good product and i hope a few fixes are made to make it even better

Despite the lack of inside modeling, its a very good work And the terminal is very precisely designed. The airport itself includes many buildings. As usual with Tropical Sim, the screenshots desserve the product

Those who criticise the appearance of the cockpit have certainly never sat in it. I have flown this plane, I can assure you that it is a very faithful historical reconstruction not only in appearance but also in performance, and not an avatar!

Textures are abysmal. Seems all the ground textures were done with google images. Runway textures is horrid and crooked. I wish more time was put into this project as this is my home airport. There's much to be desired. It seems extremely rush. Not worth the money.

I really love this Plane. This and Br Sim Design's H35 Vtail are just fantastic. Some of the best engine vibration effects and prop effect i have seen. Flight model is great and the plane is such a joy to fly. I have both and they are a part of my regular rotation. This one is unique in its design. Definately worth it! You won't regret it.

Rather well done. I was skeptical at first but it flies nice, it's modeled nice, textures are good and on top of that it has a cool and unique custom efb smart phone with apps (weather, gps, notepad)Even comes with a well modeled fuel truck and transport car for those who like extra immersion. All in all you can tell the dev put passion into this XA42.

First I’d like to confirm that this is fully compatible with FSX Steam Ed. You only need to direct the install to you FSX Steam root folder which is very easy to do. There aren’t a lot of Russian military fighters to choose from or compare this to but this is definitely the best you can buy. The modeling of this SU27 is really quite good. Excellent exterior with reflections and shine as well as detailed aircraft modeling. All switches and panels in the cockpit are 3D. No sections that are just 2d photos pasted into position (like AFS Designs SU planes) while all switches, dials and knobs are 3d, only a handfuls are actually clickable. Only the most important can be clicked and the rest are not simulated at all. At least the VC is accurate and looks great! The Mach indicator in the Airspeed dial doesn’t seem to work. For example when I am at fl360 going 1200 kmh the Mach ready should read approximately (based on conversion charts and speed converter applications taking pressure, temp etc in to consideration) Mach 1.6 but is actually blank at the needle point. The AoA limiter allows for the most stable flight behaviors and forgives excessive stick input. Turn it off and the plane becomes vastly more maneuverable but also less forgiving of extreme movements, but is the only way to perform a “cobra”. With the limiter off, it becomes far more easy to accidentally enter high speed aerodynamic stalls and uncontrolled rolls and spins. When that happens you can hit the “auto recover” button and the plane will usually recover itself even if the pilot blacks out. The overall flight model feels very different from other jet (like F15, F14 etc) fighters of the era making for a nice change of pace if you’re used to American types. The audio is very cool! The engines sound as powerful as they should. Very nice afterburner effects and unique audio set adds to the overall immersion. Turn it up! Overall this is the best SU27 I can find. While little of the systems are simulated (typical of most planes of this type anyway) you get the most important and can enjoy the flight and extreme maneuvering capabilities just fine. It’s priced well all things considered. Excellent frame rates! Based on use with FSX Steam Edition Win 10 3.3ghz i7 16GB ram Intel UHD630 integrated GPU
