Having never had the pleasure of using the Piaggio myself in real-life, I decided to download this remake to see what I would think – it’s always nice to try out a new experience, after all! What I quickly found with this mod, though, was that it gave me a genuine appreciation for an aircraft that I had never really spent any time in until now.
Not only does this mod do a wonderful job of translating pieces of hardware such as animated gears and dampeners alongside control surfaces and a dynamic virtual cockpit, but it helps to really set the tone for the Piaggio itself.
I was massively impressed with this mod, but what was my overall view of its features?
The design itself is absolutely spot on, giving you something that is deeply exciting and engaging inside. Despite being a proper old-school two-engine prop, the Piaggio was a world-wide hit at one stage and you can see why from the interior of the aircraft. It’s incredibly well designed with the cabin being made to look as spacious as it is in reality.
This rally captures the way that the aircraft looks when it flies, adding even more to the overall quality of the design across the board.
It’s the little things – from the retracting landing gear which sits underneath the fuselage right down to the lack of a central section make sure that this aircraft feels very much different to many of its competitors from back in the da.
The aircraft was actually capable of carrying up to 12 passengers as well as the pilot, meaning that it was a very decent aircraft for getting people around – in the scale and style of the design here, you’ll notice that spaciousness unite quickly.
The attention to the overall quality of detail is something to behold, too. The tip tanks are typically unattachable, too, as it can make the plane too heavy to fly with full passenger loads. It’s these little things that make all the difference with an aircraft’s quality of realism in a simulator and it’s captured here in true style.
The creators of this system have done an exceptional job in bringing the whole picture together, although the aircraft is not without its weaknesses. With a poor taxiing style as well as rather unstable landing gears, this aircraft can be a challenge to get used to for those more accustomed to the lavish modern aircraft.
All that being said, this is a breath of fresh air and I deeply enjoyed the process of flying it. It comes with great designs and ideas included, and is a wonderfully instinctive remake of a classic.
