The single-engine aircraft most faithful to real piloting

Recommended Posts

Good morning,
What do you think is the most faithful single-engine aircraft to real piloting.
The one who reacts the same as in real life.
THANKS

This can't be serious!! Anyone who has been near this forum since the A2A Comanche has come out will have hundreds of posts to read with the answer. Do we need to go through it all again?

I'm not talking about engine realism or mechanical aging, I'm asking for flight fidelity. Reaction of the plane to the stick, reaction turbulence, reaction to the rounding of the landing.
If you tell me it's the Comanche, I don't have that plane because it's not in the FS2020 Market Place. And I don't know how to install a third-party aircraft. forgive my ignorance

With most planes, including the Comanche, you download a .zip file which unpacks to a folder full of folders. You put that parent folder into your Community folder and it appears in MSFS. You choose it to fly just like you choose any default plane.

The unzipped parent folder for the Comanche is:

a2a-aircraft-pa24

------------

Default locations for the community folders are:

Microsoft store:

C:\Users\YourUsername\AppData\Local\Packages\Microsoft.FlightSimulator_8wekyb3d8bbwe\LocalCache\Packages\Community

Steam:

C:\Users\YourUsername\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft Flight Simulator\Packages\Community

Retail Disc:

C:\Users\YourUsername\AppData\Local\MSFSPackages\Community

 

One person's answer to your question is not too important. But if you saw a poll of 100 MSFS users, then the Comanche would win.

The only powered planes I have flown in the RW are the 152 and the 172 so I can't really compare the way any of the others react but I can say from experience that the default 152 and 172 in the sim are pretty close to what I have experienced in real life.

I've also flown hundreds of times in gliders and that is very different to the experiences I get in the sim.

As for flying the heavies, I have no idea how they fly in real life so perhaps one of the jet jockies here could tell us how he or she feels about it.

Mine came as an executable which installed itself in the correct location automatically.

Not a real pilot myself but from what I have learned when researching some of the aircraft I have in MSFS these are quite realistic. For both there are upgrades available to make their systems and istruments more realistic as well. For the 152 as freeware, the 172 as payware.

The Milviz/Blackbird Cessna 310 also behavious very realistic according to discussions between pilots I found on the internet.

The A2A Comanche is the gold standard of GA aircraft without a doubt.

Have you all flown the Comanche and these other aircraft irl? 


From aircraft I’ve flown IRL and in the sim the 152 and 172 are the most realistic.

If you buy the plane at A2A you will download a executable file which install Comanche in the correct location automatically, it is just as simple as that, no need to do anything else.

What’s the reason A2A are going this way still with their aircraft, I think all other devs are on marketplace now.

Obviously except the ones with the independent developers working on a project and their separate agreements like Heavy decision etc have.

Maybe because selling on marketplace cost money and updates takes forever to get out to their customers.

Sure but it opens the products up to a far larger market. 
 

Obviously most devs do both but A2A seem to be the only aircraft dev apart from fenix now not selling on marketplace and directly. 
 

Flyby wire and heavy division and the other modders aren’t there either but that’s more about their IP rules I think. 
 

Edit - actually found a link to a thread where A2A appear to be planning a marketplace release.

 

Hopefully a console release is on the way also then!
