    A2A Simulations - Cherokee 180 + Accu-Sim

    This product includes both the aircraft and its associated Accu-Sim expansion pack.

    Overview

    This flying machine may rightly be called a "Goldilocks" aeroplane. It is not too big and not too small, not too complex and not too simple, etc. The Piper Cherokee 180 is, as the little flaxen-haired girl so famously declared, "Just right!"

    The entire PA-28 Cherokee line from the humble two-seat 150 h.p. PA-28-140 to the swift, retractable undercarriage PA-28R-200 Arrow, to the powerful, heavy load-carrying 235 h.p. PA-28-235 Dakota, is respected as being one of the most popular, commercially successful series of aircraft containing within some of the most pilot-friendly aeroplanes ever built. Each member of the Cherokee family fills its particular niche at least as well as, and often better than other aircraft of similar type. However, of all of the many Cherokees the Cherokee 180, sitting as it does right in the middle of the pack has proven itself to be most popular and justifiably so. Introduced to the public in 1961, the first Cherokee, the 150 hp PA-28-150 was immediately well-received setting the pace for its later siblings who went on to provide pilots of all levels of experience with honest, dependable and well-performing aircraft which are fun and satisfying to fly, reliable, safe and economical to own and operate. However, getting to this place took some time and some very astute business and aeronautical skills and sense.

    • Piston combustion engine modeling. Air comes in, it mixes with fuel and ignites, parts move, heat up, and all work in harmony to produce the wonderful sound of a Lycoming 360 engine. Now the gauges look beneath the skin of your aircraft and show you what Accu-Sim is all about
    • Bendix King Avionics stack with authentic period LED's. Three in-sim avionics configurations including no GPS, GPS 295, or the GNS 400
