    vFlyteAir - Cirrus SR20 for X-Plane

    Changes in version 2.6 include:

    New Features

    • VR Ready - all cockpit manipulators have been optimized for virtual reality in accordance with the Laminar Research Guidance for Authors, and tested with X-Plane 11.20vr6
    • Now includes the ShadeTree Micro Aviation AutoUpdate(c) plugin - your copy will be automatically updated (when needed) every time you load the Cirrus
    • New "Startup Cold, Dark and Healthy" option available from the Options pop-up menu. If you select this option, the switches, settings, etc. will be reset to a "cold and dark" state, and any failures will be reset
    • New menu control system - you can now reposition and resize your menus, and their positions and sizes are saved when you exit. Position the small control icon anywhere on the screen.
    • Persistent "save states" - (91) different preferences, options, switch settings, and weights are saved when you unload the Cirrus, and are restored when you fly the next time
    • Autopilot now disengages when Minimums are reached - according the Cirrus POH, the autopilot will not engage or will disengage either below 200' AGL or when your Decision Height Minimum is reached
    • Autopilot LVL function now turns on the autopilot servos and sets roll and pitch to zero (in accordance with the SR20 POH)
    • New NORMAL textures for interior objects - to take advantage of X-Plane PBR rendering system
    • The altitude number on the altimeter is now shown in steps of 10' (e.g. 1100, 1110, 1120, etc.) instead of one-foot increments (1101, 1102, etc.)
    • New LEDs appear near the HSI on the PFD to show Course and Heading changes when CRS or HDG knobs are being adjusted
    • Landing lights are now much brighter

    Bug Fixes

    • Fixed a problem where the ADF and NAV audio volumes were flip/flopping
    • Now using the correct dataref for the analog gauge slip indicator
    • Now using the correct dataref for the turn rate indicators
    • Fixed a problem where the engine idle could go much too low and the engine would die
    • Fixed misaligned glideslope indicator on PFD
    • Improved the situation where the %Power needle on the MFD would jump wildly when mixture is reduced to near engine-quit state
    • Small improvements to FMOD sounds
    • Fixed some UV-map problems with some meshes on the interior
    • Autopilot now uses standard X-Plane commands instead of custom commands
    • Added missing HDR lights for interior dome lights

    vFlyhteAir Cirrus SR20

    The vFlyteAir model of the Cirrus SR20 is equipped with avionics systems which resemble the look and feel of the real aircraft's "Perspective" system. "Perspective" is based on the Garmin G1000. According to Mario Donick, who created the glass panel system for the SR20, "Although we don't strive for a true simulation of the avionics, we took care for many details. Many features of the real Perspective G1000 system are modeled in the vFlyteAir version, but some are omitted or not implemented.

    Here is a list of the features we think you will find very functional:

    The following features are available on the Primary Flight Display (PFD):

    • Artificial Horizon with high-resolution attitude indicator, flight director and roll scale
    • Speedtape with custom display of reference speeds
    • Altitude tape with custom vertical velocity indicator and minimums display
    • Enhanced HSI with turn indicator and three fully configurable bearing pointers for GPS, NAV1, NAV2 and ADF
    • Switchable inset windows for timer/references, minimums, wind, ADF, map, nearest airports, and flight plan
    • Cirrus-style top bar with power setting, frequencies and detailed GPS & autopilot information

    On the Multi Function Display (MFD), the following features are available:

    • Engine information system with switchable trim status
    • Detailed system page with engine parameters, declutter mode, used fuel, remaining fuel, remaining range, remaining time, anti-ice & oxygen gauges, density altitude, temperatures, ISA deviation
    • Custom user interface for creating and editing flight plans (accessing X-Planes navdata and default FMC)
    • "Nearest" page for airports, navaids and related frequencies
    • Cirrus-style top bar with destination window, frequencies and GPS information
    • X-Plane default map with weather radar and traffic warnings with custom icons
    • Interactive checklists and user-definable charts

    vFlyteAir - Cirrus SR20 for X-Plane

    In addition to PFD and MFD specific features, the following system-wide specifics are worth mentioning:

    • X-Plane autopilot with ROL, HDG, NAV, APPR, ALT, V/S, IAS modes and detailed status information
    • Autopilot will automatically disengage below minimum conditions as stated in the Pilot Operating Handbook (underspeed, overspeed and altitude)
    • Custom calculations for ground speed, true airspeed, fuel & ranges, bearings and distances
    • Reversionary mode with engine information system and system summary (reacts on fuse & MFD failure)
