    Ikarus C42C Ultra Light Light Sport Aircraft

    This plane is very special for us, because one of our team members is currently training for his sports pilots license (SPL) on a C42. Actually, Mario flies two different C42Cs: D-MYSF and D-MNLN which both belong to the flying school Magdeburg (flugschule-md.de), at EDBM airport in the city of Magdeburg in central Germany.

    The Ikarus is the most common ultra light model in Germany, and is very popular in Europe and many other countries. The C42C is a fabric-and-tube construction, and is extremely light weight with very good useful load. Powered by a Rotax 912 engine, the Ikarus sips fuel at a very low rate and is surprisingly roomy.

    Two different instrument panels are included with the Ikarus, a "Basic Trainer" and a "Full Panel."

    Special Features

    • Created from actual hands-on experience flying an Ikarus C42C (D-MYSF)
    • VR compatible - fully optimized for VR use
    • Two different panels included:
    • o The Basic Trainer has the essential gauges and instruments for VFR training flights (Altimeter, Airspeed, Vertical Speed (variometer), Slip Indicator, Magnetic Compass, COM radio (no NAV radio), and engine monitor gauges
    • o The Full Panel version adds a transponder and a "vfamap L" glass panel instrument loosely modeled from the flymap L® - includes a simple GPS Flight Planner, an Artifical Horizon with waypoint information, and a moving-map display with GPS flight plan overlay (used the X-Plane G1000 moving map). The Full Panel version also has a simulated FLARM traffic alert monitor that will track your AI aircraft
    • Accurate flight characteristics based on input from our own in-house C42C student pilot Mario
    • Semi-transparent fabric-covered wings and empennage
    • FMOD sounds - more than 85 original, actual sound recordings used for FMOD sounds, including engine running (forward, aft, left and right), flaps, switches, doors, ground roll, propeller turn-by-hand, sun visors, engine starter, engine shut-down and many more

    • provided at each of the six inspection stations. We even simulated the famous Rotax engine "burp"!
    • User-customizable air charts feature allows you create a matrix of nine air charts that can be scrolled up/down and left/right and "stitched together" to form a large, virtual "paper" chart that can be popped up inside the cockpit
    • Pop-out gauges make it easier to see and operate the gauges and instruments (VR friendly)
    • COM radio allows you to save up to (30) radio frequencies in memory and recall them for use anytime you fly. Store your most-used frequencies!

    • Engine choke operation is functional (simulated)
    • Realistic engine effects unique to the Rotax 912, such as slow idle after first starting the engine
    • Realistic BRS parachute, including safety pin that must be removed prior to operating the BRS, and a blow-off parachute hatch with actual BRS rocket sound
    • Choice of metric or imperial units for gauges and instruments (your choice is saved each time you quit X-Plane or unload the airplane)
    • Choice of English or German language for instruments and menus (your choice is saved each time you quit X-Plane or unload the airplane)
