Adam Aircraft A500 question

Recommended Posts

I was reading my July issue of AOPA Pilot Magazine, and was reading the article on the Adam aircraft A500. I have seen this plane before from its web site from a link about 2 or 3 months ago but never really looked close and hard at it until I read this article. I was wondering if anyone was in the process of building this aircraft for FS? I have longed loved the skymasters 337

Kobie - do you have a good shot of the main landing gear? That knuckle gear is not well defined in the 3-view and site photos.Felix/FFDSPegasus Aviation Design

I know this topic is VERY VERY old, but I'd like to bump it and make it a request for FS9. I know Chuck Dome already made one, but I was not too impressed. Any other versions out there?I am particularly interested in detail, and would also be interested in a payware version as well.I live here in Pueblo, CO, where the initail part for the A500 are made before being shipped to Denver to be put together to fly. I'd love to see a good version of her for FS9.Chris

I had started to make one...as a side thing; I like the A500 also. If you can provide the shots, I'll see what I can do...

Absolutely. I'll start gathering immediately. I know on their web site they have a photo gallery. I will also hit airliners.net and see what I can cough up.

Only one photo that I can find of the panel seems to exist, and that is on the web site of Adam Aircraft in the Gallery. I checked Airliners.net -- using search term "A500" I only got a few images taken at Centenniel KAPA. I am about to email Adam Aircraft Industries and see if any kind soul would be willing to spot us some cockpit photos. There are plenty of exterior and cabin photos. Just their panel seems illusive.
