A2A Accu-Sim 182T Skylane First Look Video (18 Minutes)

Recommended Posts

Hi all!

 

I noticed A2A posted a preview video today of their next product, the Cessna 182T Skylane: 

 

What do you all think?

 

Personally, I think it looks very nice. It should be a fun aircraft to fly. I was surprised, though, that they didn't replicate the interior avionics of the real-life aircraft that they tested, but I'm sure they had good reason to do so.

 

The video says the 182T should be released in the upcoming "days/weeks." Well done, A2A!

I haven't watched the video but am excited about a high performance GA plane from A2A, and I always liked the C182. I skipped their C172 but will likely get this one.

 

Hopefully they are planning to do a complex GA next. I'd like to see them do a Piper Comanche or a Beech Bonanza.

It's too similar to the C172 (which i like very much) for my tastes, i'll be passing on this.

It *looks* the same but, the two are quite different RW and I hope they can capture that.  A C172 is a great trainer and slowwwww.  A C182 is a touring airplane and will cruise a good 30-40 knots faster, has a constant speed prop, a much larger cowl (I used to look at it and think "How do you see over that thing?").  But it's fine once you're in the seat.  I really loved flying one during the short time I was working on my Instruments (not finished).  It's a good choice!

EDIT:  I've said it before in another thread when describing them.  The difference between the two in flight feels like the difference between driving a car and driving a minivan.  The 182 sways and you don't cut the power, you slowly back it off as you're over coming over the approach lights.  It would be nice to see them add an RG version.

I'll be in, no doubt. I'm so pleased I resisted the 'other' 182 out there. This will be doing a lot of miles.

182... Ugh

 

I like their company but this is an instant pass - just another single slow blah! F1 has an excellent glass rendition as well.

 

I was really hoping for that Bonanza!

I completely agree with Gregg.  Often in the sim world things get oversimplified into broad categories (in part because models haven't always been sophisticated enough) whereas in RW aviation the differences are more easily recognized.  In sim terms - "Hey, two high wing singles (172 and 182) - no real difference."  IRL, however, moving from a 172 (still fairly small and light, with under 200 HP and fixed pitch prop) to a 182, (larger, far more power and a constant speed prop) is a significant step.  As Scott mentions in the video, the feel, handling and power are all markedly different from the 172 and trim suddenly becomes your best friend.

 

If they can capture those differences, I'm in.  I do also wish they'd done an RG, however.

I agree on the RW the differences are really nice (seating four probably full fuel), half a mi / min faster etc. but in the sim it's too slow for me. I'll take their Commanche or Bonanza if they ever do those.

Thank you for posting this.

 

I just purchased their Piper Cherokee last week (what I flew as a student and when I got my Private License). I'm really impressed with A2A, and recently started flying their P47, B377 and B-17. As much as I love flying PMDG 737NGX and 747, there is something special about flying props - I really feel like I'm piloting these planes (and not just a computer operator <g>).

Nice aircraft.  Will buy it, but I personally would have preferred an older model 182, than another modern rendition.

 

Still, just read this will have GTN750 compatibility so HAPPY DAYS ! :)

Aviation and flightsim video forum?  Seriously?  For a new A2A release?  

 

May I respectfully suggest that this properly belongs in the FSX and/or P3D forums where people can find it... and that the moderation is, in this particular instance, maybe just a little too intense?

 

My $.02...

Didn't see that coming! :smile:

 

I don't think anyone did. Out of nowhere. Not complaining though. I'm always happy to add an Accusim bird to the hangar.

This caught me by surprise too, I was expecting the V35 lol,  It is a great choice tho, not everyone looks at speed first, especially when there is already a P-51.  It's great to have an accusimmed legit bush plane now, especially if it gets tundra tires later.   This 182 will get in and out of some airstrips that you wouldn't dare try with a V35.  The last accusim bush plane was the J-3, and thats even slow by bush plane standards lol.  It is great to see virtual bush pilots finally getting a high quality release.

 

Credit card ready.  

 

Do you ever notice that A2A and Realair tend to have 'comming soon' releases together frequently?   Either way, its win win....get a high performance bush plane or a fast turbine twin...or both...lol.  Lol what do you bet this will switch next time....Scout V2 released the same time as A2A V35 or whatever lol.

 

Cheers

Great observation Gregg and exactly what was observed during the test flights, the yoke pressures to move the controls alone is a wake up call to just how different this aircraft is.
