Airfoil Labs C172 NG veröffentlicht

Airfoil Labs hat die Cessna 172 NG Digital für X-Plane veröffentlicht (48,95 USD) und wirbt damit, dass die Unterstützung von X-Plane 12 höchste Prio hat. Es erwartet uns eine noch nie dagewesene Simulation der C172S auf Studienebene mit G1000 Avionik, so der Hersteller auf der Produktseite. Sogar die Unterstützung von RealSimGear Hardware ist für 2022 geplant.
