It's actually very nice! These freeware aircraft being released for aerofly come in varying levels of detail, and this one is at the top.

https://www.aerofly.com/community/forum/index.php?thread/14321-pipercub-released-for-public-download/

The cub is certainly a great aircraft, I have a fine freeware one for Xplane11, although the Luscombe 8A is my fav taildragger and the only taildragger I have flown in real life.  The night before I flew it, as I was being trained in how to hand prop it, a nearby cub pilot was trying to hand prop his aircraft.  We went over to try to help, as my friend who owned the Luscombe was expert as an "armstrong starter", but we could not get the cub started so he invited his friend to bring it to his hangar where they could work out the issue. 

I do not know if they ever did, this was at Pegasus Airpark, a grass strip near Stroudsburg PA which I have displayed in some recent Xplane11 screenshots.  If I had space for Aerofly I would add it, simply due to the wonderful screenshots shared of the sim and add-on aircraft like your cub.  Plus, I have stayed overnight in Innsbruck many times and even walked down one of the Alps over looking the city, past the zoo which is on the way down. 

I did not go to the top of the Alp but did take the cable car halfway up before my walk down, it was a wonderful day in 1991, my last Eurail trip to Europe.  My second two trips to Europe, one was a working trip in Bologna Italy, and I went to Venice twice on my days off, the second was a trip in 2017.  I made it to Salzburg and went atop the Eagle's Nest but bypassed Innsbruck that time on my way to Munich.  But on my trips from '77 onward I always visited Innsbruck either via Luzern or via Vienna.  It looks rendered very well in Aerofly!

Who will not love this Cub in its classic chrome-yellow paint? Lovely pictures, Nils!
