A2A Simulations hat heute ihr neues Projekt vorgestellt – die Cessna 182 Skylane. Das 18 minütige Video zeigt die verschiedenen geplanten Accu-Sim Umsetzungen. Ein Highlight dürfte bestimmt die tiefgreifendere Accu-Sim Motor und Propeller Implementierung werden.
Being our first high performance GA aircraft, we’ve focused in the following areas:
230 hp Lycoming 540 6-cylinder engine
In real life a pilot needs a “high performance endorsement” from an instructor before being allowed to fly an aircraft with over 200 horsepower as pilot in command. This is because with greater power, comes additional challenges including higher torque and speed. This means the pilot needs to learn how to counter the engine’s higher torque and the propeller’s higher pfactor (stronger right rudder application). This engine is 50% larger than engines commonly fitted in smaller GA planes, so the pilot moving up from a smaller aircraft to the Skylane must learn to apply power more judiciously (no just throwing the throttle full forward and leaving it there).
With recent extensive experience with various propellers in the real world, we have had to push our technology further into into new areas. This means, for the first time in a simulation, you will experience the same real world differences between different propeller types. Propeller technology is a very big subject and one we look forward to further discussing with the community.
More Power, More Heat
We’ve expanded Accu-Sim deeper into the internals of the engine combustion chambers, so the pilot will learn to use all means of engine heat management available, including airspeed, cowl flap settings, engine RPM, and mixture.
The Art Of Cruising
All the above means there are techniques used only in the real world, that for the first time are available in a flight simulation. Lower RPM / higher manifold pressure engine efficiencies are modeled, allowing the pilot to increase both speed and economy at the same time. This is a lively debate among both pilots and mechanics, and will now be relevant in our flight simulation community.
This brand new feature turns your stick or yoke into a tow bar, allowing you to push and pull the plane around realistically.
Sound Driven By Physics
We’ve taken this even further allowing users to experience improved engine groans, airframe rattles, ground handling, and more. The new physics mentioned above ties into the sound and vibration engine, allowing you will feel the prop cutting into the air like never before.
Native 3rd Party Avionics Support
Built in support for the RealityXP GNS430 and GNS530, Flight1 GTN650 and GTN750, and Mindstar GNS430 and GNS530.
There is so much more to this plane and we can’t wait to watch the community experience it for the first time.
