Mooney Acclaim G1000 N178TN. A repaint only for the stock FSX Mooney Bravo with the G1000. This is a real world repaint of N178TN which I flew in September of 2008. These are high resolution DDS textures and will only work in the FSX Deluxe Sim Gamepack. There are optional camera definitions, panel files and mods to the aircraft.cfg to better simulate the Type S cruise speed and climb performance. By Zane Gard, Jr.

Drop the texture.N178TN folder into the stock FSX/SimObjects/Airplanes/Mooney_Bravo folder.

Open the 'aircraft.cfg' file with Windows Notepad.

Go to the last aircraft paragraph selection (paragraph for each one of the Mooney Bravo entries), and copy/paste the below aircraft entry beneath the last aircraft entry.

////////////////////////////START COPY HERE/////////////////////////////////

[fltsim.XX] <--------------------------CHANGE TO NEXT NUMBER UP IN ORDER WITH
title=Mooney Bravo N178TN
ui_type="Acclaim Type S"
ui_typerole="Single Engine Prop"
ui_createdby="Microsoft Corporation"
description="Mooneys are built to go fast. A focus on speed seems natural for a company that at one time offered a plane powered by a Porsche engine. Although the partnership with the Germans didn't last, Mooney's commitment to speed certainly has. In keeping with this idea, Mooney has experimented with a number of "big engine" models. The Acclaim Type S is Mooney's fastest\s with 280 hp all the way to 25,000 ft, the Acclaim Type S can attain speeds up to 242 KTAS, making it the fastest single-engine airplane currently produced."

Next, change the first line to next number up, such as [fltsim5] or [fltsim13], etc.

This repaint was created by Zane Gard and inspired by my time flying the real world Mooney Acclaim N178TN. A special thank you to my friend William Ortis for his help in creating this repaint.
