Sim recs from real Skylane pilots?

Recommended Posts



I have logged about 1200 hours in a (real) 182Q and Mooney 252, with about 150 hours of actual instrument time.  I stopped flying for 10 years while my kids were little and will begin again soon in a 2008 T182T.


I would like to assemble a home setup that accurately simulates IFR flight in the Cessna.  I have tried this in the past and been disappointed with the results: specifically, I couldn't trim the plane to fly an approach realistically, as the altitude and airspeed would oscillate wildly with small trim changes as if the plane had no inertia.  I don't know if there are add-ons that would fix this easily or not.


Since I'd like to fly the G1000, my (brief) search makes F1's T182T in P3D sound good on paper.  Do any of you real 182 pilots have a setup that replicates flying approaches more or less faithfully to the real thing?
