Cessna 182 Skylane Update. This is an update for FSX Acceleration of the Cessna 182 from FS2004. The author has updated the flight dynamics and fixed the regular and IFR panel backgrounds and changed a few gauges. A classic example of keeping it simple is never stupid. You need the original aircraft for this update to work. By Bob Chicilo.

Unzip to a folder of your choice. After backing up your air and aircraft.cfg files, replace them with the ones in this update. Copy the pictures to the aircraft folder. Back up both the regular and IFR panel folders and replace them with the ones in this update.

If you have not already done so, copy the .cab files from the default aircraft panel folders that have them to the main FS gauges folder. For some the .cab files will be .zip files as .cab files are a type of .zip file.

See [reference speeds] in the aircraft.cfg file for operating speeds.

Anyone: You have my permission to use any of my updates with the following conditions: One, you don't try to make money with them. Two, you don't try to hurt, or take something from anyone by using them.

This update makes the 182 fly really well. I belonged to a flying club that had a 182 and this update brought back memories of the real airplane. Can not say enough about how good this is. We also had a 172 and a 182 does not feel like a 172. Big engine and lots of power required constant trim unless flying the 182 was to be your upper body workout. Thank you, great work.
