First introduced in 1974, the AA-5 series were unique in their bonded honeycomb airframes, producing a simple, smooth, and strong structure. With a sliding canopy and quick controls, the AA-5 were a breed apart. The later AA-5B series had more powerful engines, giving a needed boost in performance. This SF9/FSX model is painted in a real world paint scheme, and has full ani's and VC with some custom gauges. Includes extra FSX files to ease porting over to FSX. Will work without my earier AA-5B Tiger release. Tim Piglet Conrad.

the nose is not centered relative to the instrument panel, it points left.

HI. Great aircraft. I cannot seem to get the autopilot to work. Does the heading indicator correspond with the autopilot? Once I set a heading and enable the autopilot with the heading enabled the plane starts to bank in continuous circles. Any idea what I am doing wrong?

If you are about to download this for FSX, Tim made another version that he rebuilt for fsx.

Great plane no sound. Get it to work and I'll re download it!

To get the sound to work, just open the cfg file in the sound folder and change the airplane to something that actually exists, I changed mine to the C172 instead of the C182; worked after that.

Same sound at all. What a shame cuase it looked like a good one.

Fantastic plane. Very good VC and very fun to fly. and its very easy to taxi cause it can turn in very tight places. The only thing wrong with it is i think it is under powered. Anything above 4000 feet and it will cruise very slowly but i have got it up to 16000 feet. Not that i would recomend flying that high in one of these plane. Fantastic plane.
