Recommendation for ORBX PNW (Pacific North West)

Recommended Posts

Hello Captains,

I recently purchased ORBX Pacific North West Scenery, and in an effort to take a break from the high-flying PDMG tube-liners and long hauls I'm looking to swing the other direction- that is a high quality simulation of an Aircraft that is something much smaller and lighter, something I can use to explore this new region and get into and out of the smaller airports.   Airplanes with floats will be equally considered w/ other General Aviation Aircraft.  It's all good!   Given my current stable of high-quality add-ons, I'm curious as what is available in this segment. 

Thanks,

Mark Trainer

A2A aircraft - any of the smaller Piper or Cessna types. Just Flight Arrow is also very good. I am also enjoying the Carenado Turbo Commander and others.

I would recommend the A2A 182 and also the Milviz Beaver.

milviz have done a fantastic job on the beaver. No question. It's also right at home in the PNW

The A2A 182 is a fantastic rendition of a legendary GA aircraft.

Different strokes for different folks but I have both and they are superb. 

The Realair legacy would also be in this list but unfortunately you can't purchase it anymore.

I don know why this topic has been moved to orbx unofficial support forum? Makes zero sense and you have to wonder if anyone actually reads before the move is done?

Thanks guys-

Yeah I quit second guessing the forum algorithms for moving things to different forums.

At any rate I do have the A2A 182, a great product other than I seem to have to have the motor factory rebuilt after each flight.  Although I may be a bad pilot, it's hard to believe I'm destroying the motor each flight.  Can it possibly be that sensitive?

I have the A2A Cherokee and it is my go to GA aircraft in Prepar3d. It has an excellent flight model even near the fringes of the flight envelope. I have flown one in real life, so I have a good basis for comparison. The A2A Piper Cub is also great but, with a slight headwind, cars on the highway will pass you! I haven't tried their 172 or 182, but would imagine they are solid offerings too.

Mark, 

I had no problems with the A2A C-182 in FSX. Since purchasing it for P3D v4, it's been a different matter. I recently completed a few flights, with the C-182 crashing while taxiing to the airport. It then required a complete overhaul to make it flyable. Seems far too sensitive.

Most likely due to the topic title.
