What A2A will likely do next after the Comanche

Recommended Posts

A2A has originally built its business on these « exotic » birds in sims with a narrower audience and Flyingiron or Milviz don’t do so bad with them in MSFS, do they 😉 ?

Sure, there's demand. Though is it as big as for aircraft that are recognisable and people are more likely to have interacted with?

After 3 years of next to no sales and expensive investment into their new MSFS aircraft modelling engine, I'd expect A2A to want their second aircraft to market to be incredibly popular with both casuals and hardcore simmers. That's why I think a Cessna is likely to be next. After that, it's fully up for debate what the following aircraft will be.

I remember The Pink Lady flying alongside Sally B  ( another former IGN B-17 ) at some of Duxford's Flying Legends airshows. At that time, I believe she was the only airworthy Fortress in the world to have actually flown combat missions during

Perhaps A2A can put her back in the air, with all the proceeds from Comanche sales 😉

It seems from the article that they repaired the metal cracks but that the insurance cost of having her back in the sky is prohibitive. So many were scraped that I am glad that this one is still with us in a museum.

Really I don’t know.  I think they will probably go for the Skylane or a variant of the V-tail. But old men can have exotic dream, can’t they ? 

Anyway I am not sure that its up for debate. They didn't ask us what we want it to be . This thread is proprio motu 😁.

I would like them to bring the Connie to MSFS or a brand new Captain of the Ship aircraft.

I'll fly and buy anything from A2A as long as that girl who sits in the right rear seat is included with the plane, she's awesome. 😁. But seriously I'd buy a flying brick from A2A  if it was for sale. This is just the new standard, They’ve raised the bar. Again.

I to would like to see the civilian version P-51 produced. I flew that a lot in P3D. Loved the integration of GTN 650!

Give me the C172 please, or the Cherokee. But if you must, I can live with the C182 Too 😎

A Beaver or a Cessna 206 would be great too.

Similar thread on the A2A forums https://a2asimulations.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=23&t=74727 .. Scott also chimed in with below, great to see all this success for them, well deserved.

"The internal A2A chats are melting as we go through the tech support, suggestions, first update chat, marketing and everything else. We have not had a post release break yet guys, give us a chance  :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen:"

Personally, would love to see the Bonanza V-tail next, failing which the C182.

Competition? A2A have no competion atm and they won't have for a long time. 

Someone here in the forum made a comment that the Comanche was like a new sim. 

A new sim requires a new improved Cessna 172.  It's the same reason why we still have the 172 again in MSFS. And the Comanche in MSFS. The Just Flight Turbo Arrow. The PMDG 737 in MSFS... 

The opposing view is that the Cessna 172 is boring.  But if that were true, wouldn't that be true for the A2A Comanche, the Just Flight Turbo Arrow, and the PMDG 737 also?

Lets try a direct question - If someone thinks the C172 is boring why would it follow they also think other, different, planes are boring as well ?
