A2A Comanche feature list and new screenshots

Recommended Posts

I'm really curious at what pace they'll be able to bring their fleet to MSFS now that Accu-Sim is ready to go. The backlog is quite significant even without factoring in potential new releases like their Aerostar...

I honestly hope for the AEST, even though they had to sell theirs irl.  I mean I'd take a V tail Bo 300hp as well but AEST first, or my dream - an analog turbocharged Lancair Legacy

Flew that in the Comanche in P3D. Bit of a learning curve, but not that bad.

I enjoy this somewhat basic autopilot a lot in P3DV5. As A2A stated, their Comanche represents their RW Comanche, which makes it more realistic than many other sim aircraft, which are unrealistically overladed with sophisticated instruments. KUDOS, A2A! I look forward to flying the MSFS version as well.

I fly an ancient Beech A24 irl.  The original panel was unsophisticated yea, but then we added G5s, GTX 345, digital engine monitor etc.  It's very very common to add newer "sophisticated" instruments to these old GA.  It's especially helpful for flying in conjested airspace.  

Just because A2A's real Comanche has a basic autopilot doesn't mean it's odd or wrong to want a newer autopilot in the sim, especially when paired with an awesome GPS like the TDS GTNXi.

The RealAir Legacy is (or was) one of the very few planes I never got bored of, one of my all time favorite add-ons. It would be amazing if A2A would continue their Legacy...pun intended. I was wondering what happened to their Aerostar after the belly landing, didn't know that they sold it...IIRC Scott said they were pretty far along with flight testing at that time but not far enough to evolve Accu-Sim for MSFS. I really hope they'll get back to it eventually!

It looks just like the old Comanche. 😒

Terrible hey ? The only  thing new that I see are the padded door interiors.

Yeah ditto to everything hehe.  FSW is doing a Legacy but it's based on Starhawk N321TF - which uses a G3X and GTN.  I'm happy about the gtn and it'll probably have the gfc500.  But as we know the G3X is basically the worst representation of avionics in the sim.

I can't win lol!  (That being said I'll be buying it day 1).  

Last night we watched a very fast moving vfr aircraft land at one of our towered satellite airports.  We were so curious what it was that we called and asked - sure enough it was a Lancair Legacy...he was doing 252 knots at 4000 ft!

I went from FSX to X-Plane and then from X-Plane to MSFS, so never flew the Comanche in P3D.

I avoided the Comanche in FSX and P3D because I wasn't mad about the panel layout. I might not be able to resist this time though.

I have such mixed feelings about this. The deep engine simulation, walkaround functionality, fluid color monitoring, etc are so impressive, but I really don't have a soft spot for the Comanche. I'm sure I'd grow to like it, especially with all the extra features, but I'd be much more excited if it was the V-tail Bonanza. I'm struggling with whether it's worth buying a plane I have no attachment to just for the systems depth.

For me, an apt comparison would be the BAe-146 vs. the Fokker F28 from JustFlight. I've been fascinated with the BAe-146 since I was a kid, even though I never had a chance to be a passenger in it. The shape of it was so cool to me. So its sentimental value made it an easy choice to buy, and the detailed simulation from JustFlight is icing on the cake. I read the entire manual, which was a few hundred pages. 

I have no similar attachment to the F28, so even though the systems simulation appears well-done, I don't plan on buying it. 

The A2A Comanche seems close to that category for me, but the systems simulation is sure tempting.

Which I'm bummed about.  Bring an incredible airframe to the sim but have a ancient AP....  Thing needs a GFC500 as an option.  I want to fly coupled approaches.

Everything else looks awesome!

Same here! Really hope for a second option to chose from.

No, it‘s definitely not odd, but do we really need a „one-size-fits-it-all“ avionics in each GA airplane? I like this very individual Comanche a lot!

I’d better have aircraft with their own historic personality.  The A2A Comanche is a real aircraft, faithfully recreated. To my knowledge, the only one in the market with a STEC.  As priceless as it is rare then. 

Having flown her in P3D, the old a/p is a bit cumbersome, but… thats where the fun is. Their Cherokee had the same btw.

I'm in a very similar dilemma with the F28 and the F70/100 I loved watching the latter at airports when going on holiday, even though I never got the chance to fly in one, I always wanted to go in one, just a beautiful looking aircraft

Best aircraft developer by a country mile. Looking forward to have their products again in MSFS.
