A2A Releases PBR Updated J-3 Cub

Developer A2A Simulations has released their updated J-3 Cub for Prepar3D. Announced in May 2019, the update brings their J-3 Cub to the now standards for P3D V4. The most notable changes are the use of PBR materials, a new 3D virtual cockpit and new flight dynamics.

The J-3 Cub is a basic trainer first introduced in 1938. Its latest iteration, the PA-18 Super Cub, ended production in 1994. Almost 40,000 of them have been built. Many ultra lights and amateur aircraft builders have since produced imitations.

The updated Piper Cub is available on the A2A website for $29.99 for the Academic license and $49.99 for the Professional license.  We are not aware of any upgrade price or policy for the previous owner of the FSX version of the A2A Piper Cub.

On a side note, A2A hinted on a Facebook comment they might be bringing their B-17 into P3D V4 during 2020.

Feature List

  • Physically based rendering (PBR) of cockpit and exterior.
  • Upgraded 3D virtual cockpit.
  • New, high-poly ‘Heidi’ passenger and male and female pilots.
  • Taildragger flight dynamics tuned for the Prepar3D simulation platform.
  • Includes standard J-3 Cub, Tundra tires, Floats, and Skis.
  • Visual Real-Time Load Manager, with the ability to load fuel, oil, pilot, passenger, and cargo in game
  • Accu-Sim physics creates an entirely new world including true wing, air-frame, engine, ground, water, and internal systems behavior.
  • Piston combustion engine modelling. Rather than using the default engine, A2A actually simulates their own combustion engine.
  • Engine life simulated. Stressing the engine can cause failures.
  • Carburetor icing modelling
