    RealAir C172

    I don't care much for the small planes out of reach in real life anymore. A good flight model C172 would have been something else. Currently mostly flying Diesel-powered Cessnas, so that would be extra sweet. I also know they are getting more and more common in Europe. Our club has two! But like said, too bad. The A2A flight model is not something I buy into myself. It flies nice for the most part, but the real interaction for example in crosswinds seems very foreign to me. Kind of then makes the training aspect with the sim a no-go. Tero

    Well that is disappointing news :(. I wouldn't have imagined that they ever cancel the Cessna. After all, it was Cessna that got people into Realair. Well, goes to show that in this business you can't rely on anything... And still it is so that there ain't a decent C172 around (flight-model!). Tero

    Hi, Has the RA C172 been cancelled? Can't find it from the RealAir pages anymore? "Coming soon" section has been removed. Tero

    Wow, the A2A video looks seriously impressive . Tero

    172, Realair or A2A?

    It seems that both companies are doing the airplanes in a detailed and through fashion. Otherwise it wouldn't have lasted this long. Hopefully though, we'll get either of them this fall. I was kind of expecting the RA offering to shoot the market before last christmas . Obviously that was an error in my part, as these things do take time. Especially if quality is what they are after.

    RealAir C172

    Yes, it would be nice to get some update from the RA team. I guess they just are of the type who develop and just announce when it's ready . Nothing wrong with that approach. Nothing wrong with me (us) wanting a teaser either. What matters is what we eventually get. Not the wait, not how many teasers we got. I know the RA C172 must be really good. I am counting on it to be. A2A looks interesting too. I have no experience of their products, so my expectations on that front are rather low. I'd put my pennies in for the RA plane. At least when it comes to FLIGHT simulation side of things. That's what matters to me. Not how I can test the fuel. Tero

    Super happy about the (so far) non-Glass availability. Tero

    Best C172 for FSX?

    Hi, Just a note on the spin side of 172, After the M-model introduced the newer type of wing, the spin entry was dramatically more difficult, requiring application of power in the proper attitude and combination of control inputs. So, your garden variety C172 should not spin that easily. That said, I can't wait to get the RA new C172, and I am thrilled to hear that it's going to be perhaps a more basic version, ie. non glass what it looks like to be :). I would be happiest with an older gen model, to be honest :). Tero

    Hi all, Seeking information on the possible release schedule / feature set of the upcoming Realair C172. The RA web page information is very sparse. I have seen the RA guys posting here, so maybe... :) Tero

    NGX bird strike question

    Why is everyone getting so worked up? He asked a simple question, regarding one of the most common failures, if it's possible to replicate or not. I didn't see him "insisting on" anything.Sometimes I feel sorry for people who ask simple questions here. If it's not an easy thing to answer, suddenly everyone's if not ridiculing, at least criticizing the OP a lot.Kristoff, did it occur to you that a bird strike is something that usually causes a particular failure scenario / particular technical consequences. You don't need birds to simulate that kind of scenario.if PMDG is offering failures and a failure mode in the NGX, then it's completely OK to ask questions on failures here.Tero

    ATR 72-500 released?

    I am okay with the language, but I was baffled by the "news" because I had no idea that a new ATR was in the works. Obviously it wasn't.Old news is no news, imo.Tero
