Can someone create or model the C172 -N model I was looking around the internet looking for one and I could not find one. I am currently training in real life in a C172-N model and I wanted to know if there was one or if A2A could create one. Tho the -R model does take you far it does not replicate the -n model just lookin around.

I find the handling of the R model to be very similar to the N model both with the 160HP and 180HP versions.

The one exception is the limit of the flap travel. The Ns I flew were adjusted to limit to 30 degrees, so I never experienced the big barn door airbrake effect.

Is this what you are seeking as all else is fairly close.

All that said, I think it is unlikely to see this development as A2A models out specific airframes with a high level of fidelity and another 172 won't be a big seller.

The best 172 on the market is A2A’s, and Oracle is spot on. I can not recommend it enough, especially for pilot training.

I highly doubt A2A will ever build a N model.

IF you must have an N model, Carenado has one, but it’s showing it’s age, and they’re a company that has never been known for their fidelity.

And one more thing about the A2A 172. I fly this thing regularly to practice IFR procedures. It is awesome for this and I can go and jump into the real aircraft (172SP) and just do the same thing. My CFII says to keep flying the sim because it shows. Big money saver. :)

It perfectly replicates attitudes, power settings, turn rates bank angles, airspeeds, etc. When I fly the approaches in sim and RL, I an faced with the exact same tasks, challenges and behaviors.

Adding to what he said, A2A’s model is used by Redbird simulations if I recall correctly. You’re just not going to find a better 172 out there, period.
