Posted on Sun, 06 Aug 2006 09:00:00 GMT
New from Aerosoft is Piper PA-31T Cheyenne. The package includes four versions of the popular twin turboprop family, all animated down to the smallest of details. For full information, click on Read More.The package contains no less than four versions of the most successful Turboprop family: Cheyenne II, I, IA and II XL. All four aircraft have been rebuilt and animated for the Flight simulator in 3-D fashion right down to the smallest of details.

In this way mechanical parts such as ailerons, rudders, flaps, engines and even windscreen wipers move just like in the original aircraft.

The excellent graphics of both the 2D- and 3D-Cockpits are equipped with all the avionic instruments usually to be found inside these models and the precise flight dynamics have been developed with the help of realCheyenne pilots. Besides the accurate panels for the pilot and the co-pilot, the cabin of the Cheyenne has also been rebuilt to the highest level of detail with its opening doors for the passengers and the freight.

The sounds, which are being used, have all been recorded on the real thing.
