Air Hamburg repaint of the default FSX Cessna C172
By Max Franke


This is a repaint of the default C172 in FSX. It is painted as D-ECWQ, which is Operated by Air Hamburg and brings passengers to the North Sea islands along Germanys coastline, like Helgoland, Sylt and Langeoog. The repaint is not perfect due to limitations of the FSX aircraft. The real aircraft has the ATC ID painted on the down side of the wings, which isn't really possible in FSX because the wing texture is the same for both wings, which gets mirrored. I want to thank Tyler Miller for his wonderful, easy to understand layered paintkit, it helped a lot!


How to install:

copy and paste the folder texture.c-af9z in: ..\FSX\SimObjects\Airplanes\C172

Open the aircraft.cfg in the C172 folder and paste this underneath the last [fltsim.?] paragraph:

title=Cessna Skyhawk 172SP Air Hamburg
ui_type=C172SP Skyhawk
ui_variation=Air Hamburg
ui_typerole=Einmotoriges Propellerflugzeug
ui_createdby=Microsoft Corporation
description=Die Cessna 172 ist ein robustes und verlässliches Flugzeug. Die meisten Piloten haben zumindest einige Flugstunden in einer Cessna 172 verbracht, da sie bei Flugzeugvermietungen und in Flugschulen am häufigsten zum Einsatz kommt. Seit der Fertigstellung des ersten Prototyps im Jahre 1955 wurden über 35.000 Exemplare der C172 hergestellt. Sie ist demzufolge das beliebteste einmotorige Flugzeug der Welt. Als eines der ersten Cessna-Flugzeuge mit Bugradfahrwerk wurde die 172 schnell von immer mehr Geschäftspiloten bevorzugt. Ihre Zuverlässigkeit und einfache Bedienung (verbunden mit durchdachter Konstruktion und strukturellen Neuerungen) haben ihr seit Jahrzehnten eine gleichbleibende Beliebtheit gesichert.

Don't forget to change the "x" to the number following the last repaint in the aircraft.cfg:
If for example the last paragraph is titled with "[fltsim.5]", you have to change the "x" to a "6"!



Paintkit by Tyler Miller. Thanks a lot!
