Malibu Mirage

Recommended Posts

A few shots of my new Carenado Malibu Mirage.

Easily my favorite civilian piston single of all time.

Carenado has a done a fabulous job on this aircraft and has as good an airfile as I've flown in FS.

She fly's fast, high and far and looks great doing it!

I regret waiting so long to get it and she's now my 'go to' bird criss crossing the scenic Southwestern US- that is until Carenado release their new Cheyenne they announced earlier this week.

If you want to step things up a notch, you should also check out their TBM850. It's one of the best single engine turbine models they've made IMO. A close second would be the PC12.

I love their piston Malibu; it was my go-to high end piston single for a long time, and seeing these pics makes me want to get her out of the hangar, dust her down and take her up!

Hey glad you guys liked the pics!

Samaritano, I am using the Realism Shader Pack in P3D and took these pics at 4K resolution.

I hear ya Bill, at altitude she can put down some impressive ground speeds especially with a little tail wind.

 

Thanks!

Funny thing I've just reinstall mine in FSX-SE and P3D and I've upgraded it with the much better synchrosoft sounds by the way. Great shots of this beautiful bird! 

 

Cheers

Very nice screens, sure looks like a Piper Malibu though?

Nice bird, I however always have troubles to get the workflow in the preparation correct such that the pressurization works. As there is no manual explaining it... Can you help me? What do I have to do first?

Turn the pressurization dial to the altitude you're climbing to. If you're climbing to FL200, turn it to 20. You can turn the rate knob higher if you're climbing faster. It's not really modeled that intensely so it doesn't really matter what you do

Thanks, but which buttons along with this? I know that it is not modeled extensively, but precise enough that you get an annoying warning above 10'000ft if pressurization is not working. I somehow fail all the time because I simply do not know which button position is the correct one etc... As I am not a complete idiot otherwise regarding handling of addon airplanes, I am always a little bit amazed that I constantly fail to get the pressurization working in this single plane...

Wish I could help you AnkH but I've not tried using the pressurization system yet to any degree.

Honestly I can't recall

 

Is there a switch on the overhead like "door seal" or anything?

 

Sometimes you need to set the knob to 1000 ft higher than you climb to. If level at FL200 set it to 21. Make sure you turn the rate knob (the smaller one) clockwise a bit if climbing faster. If you're getting a caution you might be climbing faster than the cabin pressurization rate.

Thanks for those tipps guys, I will consider them. In my last flight, I simply used the "cold & dark" option of Carenado and fired up the plane without touching anything regarding pressurization except the altitude setting knob and it worked fine. Might be that I always put one of the switches in the wrong position, especially for those overhead switches it is not really logical which position is what. Thanks anyway.
