The Tecnam P2010, developed by Aeroplane Heaven, is released for Prepar3d versions 4.4+. The release of the aircraft was broadcasted through their Facebook page.
It might look like a Cessna 172 Skyhawk, but if you look closer you will notice a shiny and sleek designed aircraft, not to mention the performance that it packs with it. It’s the Tecnam P2010 that we will look at, and it has been designed to carry four passengers including the pilot. In addition, its main structure is built with carbon fiber to complete its flawless design with a lighter weight. The Tecnam P2010 is powered by the popular Lycoming IO-360 engine capable of producing 180 hp.
This accurate rendition of the Tecnam has been developed with PBR inside and out. With the implementation of PBR, we can see a detailed outline of the leather on the seats, polished metals, and all plastics inside the aircraft cast a glow. The developer states, “Every nut, bolt, and wire has been accurately modeled and you will find a complete, highly detailed Lycoming engine under the lift up nose panel”.
Many hours were spent to reproduce the flight characteristics of the Tecnam P2010, along with recorded sounds from the actual aircraft which entails everything from starting the engine to the takeoff run. Furthermore, an easy to use feature has been implemented which gives the user the option of switching between a Garmin display panel or a completely analog system panel.
