Animted gears, dampers, propellers, doors, and control surfaces, Dynamic Clickable VC. The fifth of the coming P-166 aircraft series. An Exotic two-engined prop that sold all over the world including America, UK, and Australia. he P-166CL2 was developed to take advantage of the cabin spaciousness of the P-166 series: a new landing gear that retracts under the fuselage into two small blisters lets expand the internal useful area more bakwards between the wings, as there is no central section. This lets the P-166CL2 accomodate 12 poassengers + pilot. The old gear bays at the side of te fuselage were replaced with two large windows that give a strange top-down view for the passenger. Tiptanks are optionally unattachable, as using them plus 12 passengers makes the plane go overweight. Means that the 12 passengers can only be transported on a considerabily short range. Only 2 P-166CL2s were built, due to the low-range caused by the small old-type tiptanks and the unstability of the new landing gear, that gave serious problems while taxiing. The P-166C is dated October '64, and converted to CL2 in 1972. The aircraft is still in production in a slightly modified turboprop version, the P-166D-P1. This model is 760 Kbs with c.a. 23000 polygons in c.a.170 assemblies. Features Clickable Dynamic VC with non-planar throttle quadrant. Detailed internals. Fully compatible with FS 2002 (pro edition).

Editorial

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

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 Detail

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.

The Verdict

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.

I would love to fly the Piaggio P166 in Prepar3d v4.5. This is a big, big ask I suspect. Do you know of anywhere I might be able to get this? Thanks, JV.
