Ray I am waiting for the great review of you for this beauty as always you are one of my favorites reviewer on the world of simulation, and the most important is that you have real hours in aztec so the review will be as always detailed, extense, puntual, objetive, and will help the people to buy or not the aircraft....

 

Regarding from Spain

Thanks Robert.

 

Yep, I am hard at work on this review. I got a little bored waiting for some information so I made the Navy paint over the weekend and finished it yesterday. I am going to pack it up and send to the avsim library in an hour or so.

She's a beauty! :wub:

 

Thank you!!!

You are most welcome.

Yep, she is my all time favorite military Aztec. :wink:

 

btw, I finally got the feathering to work in the Aztec F. Check out that perfectly flat prop.

I think it was just a matter of using FSUIPC to set up the props payware or just control F2.

 

A pilot is always learning.

Is this Navy Aztec based on real world? or fictional?  Have been searching for a Navy correct GA aircraft to fly to the Tom Allensworth Memorial Flight 2. So far a Beech B200 is all I have found.

The Navy purchased 20 early model Aztecs in 1960. The Aztec evolved from that initial model to the F model (1974) that Alabeo produced. The number of seats - 6 - never changed nor did the engine horsepower - 250 hp. The most notable change was the elongated nose and the streamlined engine nacelles. How Navy correct that is can be debated, but I would lean toward "it is correct enough to represent the small Navy VIP Transport in flight simulation." All Aztecs are from the same nest, only the feathers are painted different colors.

Great! So this begs for some talented paint pro to repaint a Navy Aztec for the Memorial Flight!

That may not be possible.

1. I do not know a single talented paint pro that will paint anything from Carenado or Alabeo.

2. I have no idea what would be involved.

3. I am a fairly good reviewer, but a real lousy painter.

Looks spot-on to me Ray

 

That's a very useful livery as TNT ran air charters all over the place

 

Thanks for your great work, much appreciated.

I know there are talented repainters around, but why don't they paint Alabeo and Carenado models? I am relaxed, just at a high level. :wink:

If you download the Navy repaint along with the TNTAIR repaint you can take the Navy black and gray panel and move it over to the TNTAIR. This makes a much more pleasing interior for those early morning charters when you are trying to woof down a bagel and having to look at that yuckie gold trim. :fool:

I added 3 new colored panel files to the Avsim Library for you to download. - Black, gray and Ivory. All nicer than the blue and gold colors. Search Alabeo Aztec to find them.

 

Pick your color and copy that file into the texture folder of the airplane repaint that you want to change the panel color.

 

The panel color file is named CAPAE_INT2.dds

 

Example: You choose the black panel to go with your dark blue plane. Delete the text letters 'black' from the new file name that you just got in the zip file.

 

Now copy the file CAPAE_INT2.dds to the airplane folder and REPLACE the existing CAPAE_INT2.dds file. Now you have a black panel.

 

Same for the gray or Ivory panel. Just rename the file name and copy and replace the ..INT2.dds in the texture folder.

 

Regards,

Good idea for the panels, thanks

 

35C here today (Sydney) so I took YH-COO from Sydney to Merimbula YMBA then inland to Cooma (Snowy mountains) YCOM

a typical charter run and a route I travelled many times as a child in F27's.

 

Looked right and felt right

 

cheers
