MilViz has received overwhelmingly positive feedback on their PA-30 Twin Comanche although, there was just one piece missing from the aircraft for users who are ‘not so old school’ which made it feel incomplete, an autopilot.
MilViz has updated their PA-30 with their own custom coded, highly detailed KAP 140 autopilot system. They have carefully replicated the logic used in the real KAP 140 autopilot system in their in-sim rendition for the PA-30. Their manual has been revised with an autopilot overview and in-depth set of instructions, you can view it here from page 20-32. You can enable the KAP 140 autopilot through the MVAMS application.
The autopilot is not the only addition to version 181102, MilViz has also added two Bendix-King instruments and texture updates, you can view the full changelog at the end of this article. You can grab a hold of this update over on the MilViz website here.
If you don’t already own the PA-30 Twin Comanche, you can grab a hold of it at the MilViz website for $39.99 (Incl. VAT). The aircraft is only compatible with FSX and Prepar3D v2-4.
