Design & Artwork by Mario Noriega 2008/2009.

Animted gears, dampers, propellers, doors, and control surfaces, Dynamic Clickable VC.

This is a complete simulation of the Piaggio PD-808. It includes advanced engine management, realistic systems, and some failure modeling. The model features a complete 3-D virtual cockpit,and a 2-D panel. Sounds are inculded. The external model features all typical animations plus a load of custom ones. Also incluides all custom special effects, including different selectable floodlights for the virtual cockpit (by simply flicking ON the proper light switch on the cockpit itself). Plus with a fly-on-the-numbers flight dynamics file. Includes full documentation. THIS IS THE FS-X RELEASE. IT WILL NOT WORK PROPERLY WITH FS-2004. THERE IS ALSO A FS-2004 RELEASE THAT WILL NOT WORK PROPERLY WITH FS-X. THis is the "RM" variant of the aircraft and base package. Other PD-808 variants will come next. This base package with the RM version will be needed for these to work properly.

A.Software Requirements

To use this plane you NEED :

Microsoft Flight Simulator X


Decompress the archive in your main FS-X directory. Launch FS-X. Select Piaggio, PD-808, then your favourite paint scheme. You're done! Documentation can be found directly in-sim with a quick dynamic checklist & FS kneeboard. A more detailed flight manual is available under "[your Flight simulator X directory]\Simobjects\Airplanes\PD808_shared\Documents\PD-808 Flight Manual.pdf" If you can't find the file, do a Windows search... it has not been possible to link it inside FlightSim's kneeboard because PDF files are not supported at the point that they send FS into a crash.

B.Known bugs

No bugs known by me.

Marco Beghi for the interst in my Piagggio airplanes. He took me to a visit at the Piaggio Hangars, lots useful for detailed models!! Thank you...
Gianfranco Michele for the MASSIVE quantity of data provided that made possible all the detail included!
To my brother Diego Noriega that sees my works with criticism and told me what was wright or wrong.
Martin Wright, author of DXTBMP
All the people at freeflightdesign that helped me a lot to demistify gMAX and the XML gauges... thanks !!

Engines always flameout and it starts with a ton of warnings.

Dear Dr. NORIEGA its planes are wonderful. You are very good. Thank you.

Gilles PeschiuttaFri, 12 Feb 2021 06:32:28 GMT


Full plane. Very well done. However, presents a bug in saving data. The Switch master power systematically disengages when resuming backup and the control surfaces are blocked. Also, note the cold and dark checklist which also blocks these commands and prevents the use of motors ...
