IFR Equipped C182 (or similar)

Recommended Posts

Dear Forum
Could anyone please recommend a really good IFR equipped Cessna 182 (or similar) for instrument training practice.
A2A do a superb C182 for FSX but they don't have an X-Plane version.
It must have:-

  • HSI
  • DME
  • ADF
  • Old fashioned round dials

This is in order to practice NDB holds, ILS and localiser/DME approaches and to be as similar to my real world plane (Robin President DR500) as possible.
Unfortunately, the 'out of the box' C172 doesn't have a DME or an HSI and is a bit slow.
Many thanks for your kind advice.
Regards,
David

Without a shadow of doubt, you need the A2A Simulations C182!

Dear JYW
Thanks,
Absolutely agree - it's superb - I've been using it on FSX but I've changed to X-Plane recently.
Sadly, they don't do it for X-Plane.
Does anyone know of something similar for X-Plane please?

Hi, 

The Airfoillabs 172 has almost all of it, but no HSI unfortunately. But it has a lot of other nice goodies for training (take a look at the video above). Cruise speed is around 110kias which matches our flying clubs DR400 pretty good. I don't know how fast the DR500 is in cruise though :-) 

Kind regards

Martin

And if you want something faster with an HSI included try the Cessna 210 from Carenado with the Simcoders Reality Expansion pack.

Many thanks.
The C210 Centurion looks just the job - ideal panel.

I bought it some time ago and still love it :-)

Don't forget, you have to buy the Carenado 210 PLUS the Simcoders expansion pack.
