Aerosoft Announces the Antonov AN-2

Aerosoft has today announced their next aircraft to be made by a developer called OctopusG in great detail. If you like different systems then this aircraft is for you, because it has it – and if you are in a hurry, then pick another aircraft, because this is a low and slow aircraft. What’s great about this aircraft is that it can land quite literally anywhere, as its stall speed is around 25 knots.

The Antonov An-2 comes as an advanced simulation where you really have to keep an eye on the instruments and remember to maintain it well or you will have troubles.  By the way, the language in the cockpit is in Russian.

It will be available for both FSX: SP2, FSX Steam and P3D V3 to V4.

You can find out more about this announcement by Aerosoft on this website.

Just Flight C152 Renders

Just Flight has announced that they are currently working on a C152 which will be compatible with both versions of FSX and all versions of P3D.

This C152 is being developed with the normal Just Flight method, which is with hands on research with a real-life C-152 G-BGAE based at Conington Airfield. It’s a two seater aircraft powered by a single piston engine that puts out 110 hp from four cylinders. It’s actually the perfect aircraft for touring or just flight training.

C152 comes with liveries from the UK, USA, Canada, France, Australia and Germany. Every instrument is coonstructed fully in 3D with smooth animations and the cockpit will have some wear and tear for the ultimate realism immersion. It will be based on real world performance and handling data from real world C152 pilots.

More can be found at Just Flight C152 in development page.

On the renders you can see that most of the exterior model is done and also the cockpit is both modeled and also textured. It looks promising, as of now no release date is set but we will keep you updated here.
