Study Level Sim List

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

 

I've been doing some wondering and searching, but from what I could find, there is not really a compiled list of our (recreational/civil) "Study Level Sim" (SLS) addons.  I can't imagine there will be too many out there that can be considered a SLS, so I'm just going to start naming ones I know of, and if anyone would like to share what else (modern platform independent) they consider as an SLS, please do so!

 

I feel an SLS should be something that pilots can get hold of, use real world manuals to fly the addon and the addon will respond exactly as a real world aircraft/FFS would.  So here's what I'm aware of:

 

[X-Plane]

  • Dreamfoil R22

  • Dreamfoil Bell 407

  • LES Saab 340a

  • X-Trident Bell 412

[FSX/FSX:SE]

  • Dodosim Bell 206
  • FSLabs Concorde
  • PMDG JS1400, B744, MD11
  • Leonardo "Maddog" MD80
  • Marcel Felde (Aerosoft) Diamond DA20-100 4X

[P3D v2/FSX/FSX:SE]

  • A2A range
  • Majestic Dash-8 Q400 (MJC8)
  • PMDG NGX, B772/3
  • RealAir Duke and Turbine Duke v2
  • VRS F/A-18E Super Bug

[standalone]

  • Aerowinx PSX B744
  • FlightDeck A3xx

 

What did I miss?!

 

Cheers,


Brendan Chen

FSX. no SE, no P3D. Just plain ol' FSX

Leonardo Software "Maddog" MD80

PMDG Jetstream JS1400

 

It's old and you really need to use it in 2d cockpit, but:
Level D Simulations 767-300

 

FSX/FSX-SE/P3D

Majestic Software Dash-8 Q400 "MJC8" DH8D

 

And for a simulator that doesn't run on FSX, FSX-SE, P3D, Xplane or anything else:
http://aerowinx.com

 

Aerowinx PSX 747-400 precision simulator

This is the software that runs the full-sized full motion simulator used by WorldFlight. (Click the image in my sig for more info)

 

(It is linked via computer networks so that the Aerowinx avionics power an FSX/P3D external view)

All noted thanks.  It's good to see the X-Plane section building up, and more helicopters are stacking up too!

The Flight1 B200 is close to study sim level.

The Aerosoft Twin Otter Extended definitely deserves a place on that list.  I believe it's boxed FSX + P3D.

 

For RealAir, you can probably add the Lancair Legacy, it's definitely up there with the Dukes (which are both at V2 btw)

 

If you are looking at non-FSX/XP/P3D platforms, might want to also consider DCS, it's probably the only other major platform outside the ones listed which has true study level sims.

DCS World:

 - UH-1H

 - Mi-8

 - KA50

 - A10C

 - F86

 - Mig15

 - Mig21

 - P51d

 - Fw190 D9

 - Me109 K4

 

ELITE:

 - Premium or Pilot edition ( still the best available desktop GA IFR training tool, IMO - here a review I made sometime ago )


Don't know, but to me MFS looks a lot like the "Barbie" of desktop flight simulation...

Doesn't matter - I like to play with Barbies...

Ahh guess I've passed the time where I can edit my post so can't add these on...  Oh well...

I thought there was also a recent release of Twin Otter beyond the Aerosoft one?  Is that one any good?  I forgot whom by...

ELITE!  I have never heard of that, will check out your review :)

I'm not aware of another for FSX/P3D (though the X Extended version is the third rendition of the Twotter by Aerosoft).

 

There is a recent X-Plane release by RWDesigns which seems to have decent reviews but it's not clear that it's a proper study sim, though the Twotter is hardly a sophisticated aircraft!

I believe that's it, I think it was by RWDesign, good find :)

Not many GA type SLSs ey?  Carenados and Alabeo's stuff look good, but anyone keen to comment whether they can be considered SLSs?  Flight dynamics any realistic?

A2A all of their stuff. Carenados and Alabeo resembles a bicycle with training wheels.
