Like all Formula One race planes, it is built around the Continental O-200. This is the same 100 hp engine that barely powers a Cessna 150 to 100 kts but on the small extremely lightweight and aerodynamic airframes of formula one racers the top aircraft can push 300 mph. With very few instruments, and less than average ground handling, Formula One aircraft are very clean "no frills" machines that serve only one purpose - flying low, flying fast, and turning left. This all-new package created specifically for FSX includes 14 different schemes, custom sounds and panel. Aircraft and panel by Jason L. Terry. Sounds by Joseph Thompson. Additional schemes by Joshua B. Nyhus, Brady Duros and Mike Vivaldi.

To install, run the installer exe and install the scenery to your MAIN FSX FOLDER, do not route the installation to your SimObjects or Airplanes folder, this will be done automatically by the installer.

Would have loved to have tried this addon but I think that the installer program you used is broken. Tried installing it directly to both my FSX main folder as instructed and Sim Objects/Airplanes folder and neither worked. Why didn't you just create this addon as a folder we simply can put directly into our SimObjects/Airplanes directory like how everybody else does it? Using an installer isn't necessary here on Fly Away Simulation and probably adds more needless work on the developer's behalf especially when it is a broken installer tool.

Excellent aircraft, as well as the ONLY Formula 1 Air Racer I've seen for FSX for the Reno Air Races. Very fun to race in. However I do have to say that this is really made for Air racing only, as your fuel tanks will only survive about 30 minutes. So you can try, but this isn't really a cross country machine. My fastest speed was 267MPH going around the Reno Pylon track. Good job to the Aeroworks team!
