FSX Antonov AN225-100 Dynamics Upgrade. Requires downloading AN225-04.ZIP. The Antonov AN 225-100, operated by Antonov Airlines is the only real-world version of this aircraft today. The AN225 Buran Carrier is also included. Model and textures by Tom Ruth. Sounds provided were originally written by Mike Hambly and Riuji Ozawa, and further modified to fit the AN-124/225 wind and gear sounds. All aircraft dynamic engineering, including engine dynamics within this file were created based on real-world aircraft flight and sound dynamics for this bird. It will now fly and sound like the real thing. Read the flightinstructor. txt for more info. By Douglas E. Trapp, FS Flight Dynamics Engineer.

Editorial

This add-on does not do much to change the actual look of the aircraft, but I have to say that as someone who was disappointed with the floaty nature of the old Antonov AN225 this mod is a godsend!

Fantastic Fixes

This mod does a great job of capturing and understanding the problems with the original mod. This aircraft is a real-world piece of hardware that is deeply respected for its immense detail and performance. However in FSX I did find that that the original wasn’t really at the level of the original so I wanted to try and find a mod that could help me fix these issues.

With this remake of the flight dynamics, I felt right at home and far more comfortable with the aircraft I was using. Not only does it come with numerous new flight dynamic changes that make it fly far truer to reality, but this mod also provides you with excellent dynamic engineering.

This means that you get an aircraft flight that feels far more like the real thing whilst also getting to enjoy something that actually feels a lot more stable. The entire idea of using this mod is that it flies far truer to the real thing but it also makes you appreciate the nuances of this specific aircraft a whole lot more.

Now, it feels a lot more unique than the unwieldy and generic equivalent which was in there in the first place, improving your overall level of enjoyment during your flights.

Great Audio

Another improvement has been the audio provided by Mike Hambly and Riuji Ozawa, offering something interesting and new to your flight. Now you can hear the right sound emendating from your aircraft as you fly, giving the entire flight a much more authentic and grounded level of quality as you fly. Everything just feels more realistic with this mod, and it does a wonderful job of making sure that both the sounds and flight dynamics are spot on.

The level of reality is very important for most simulation fans, myself included, and this mod does a great job of capturing the need for realism across the board.

Not only does this feel really engaging to mess around with, but it offers a much greater level of stability in the sky that will definitely help you capture, control and manage the overall level of quality you get as you pierce through the skies.

It certainly made my time using the Antonov feel far more authentic and I think it will do the same for you if you give it a chance – it’ well worth your time!
