A/C with custom failures

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

I'm getting a bit bored with A-B flying, and want to do some more intense hands on stuff, one thought is to play around with failures, apart from the PMDG birds and the Fenix A320, do any other higher quality aircraft have custom failures like these 2? They don't have to be tube liners either.

Thanks

Joe

PMDG is pretty well the good standard here.  The other one I've found in MSFS is the Milviz 310; highly recommended if you like complex GA.

Thanks both, I guess I meant as well as PMDG and Fenix oppose to apart from, I have both and am playing to do extensive failures with both, just wanted to check if I've missed any other planes

On the most basic level, you can go GA in the 152 or 172 (or JustFlights PA28) and just cut the engine and glide the approach and landing like you’d learn in the PPL syllabus.

If you're talking small aircraft, FSReborn has a Sting S4 that has failures.  And you can even speed up the rate of failures (i.e. prematurely age the components, so you don't have to fly 500 hours for something to fail) -- although I've never tried doing that.

Look at FSIPanel's Advanced edition. I believe you can set failures on a variety of aircraft. Plus, either standard or advanced versions allow you to set the planes up for various approaches.

For airliners FlytheMaddog MD-82 on simmarket, its more expensive than either PMDG or Fenix but just as complex and much older and hands on flying. Most complaints are texturing, sounds and yeah the price.

G.A. Milviz/Blackbird C310.

Oh .. and the Ant's Tiger Moth has some failures modelled as well.  It can definitely run out of oil and seize as i discovered on a few occasions when Neofly emptied my oil tanks.

On one of the first flights in the Blacksquare King Air, I heard a small rattle I could't explain. Sometime during cruise a warning went of that appeared to do with pressurisation. I could not find the cause of this until I remembered the rattle. It appeared the right storm window had sprung open and off course that meant the cabin wouldn't pressurise. After closing that window the cabin would pressurise and the alarm stopped.

I haven't been able to reproduce the fault since because if I take off with the window deliberatelty open the MSFS will crash the aircraft.
