If any aeroplane ever deserved
to be called classic, then the
venerable and ubiquitous Cessna
172 in all of its many variations
surely deserves that title. It is a
time-tested benchmark of aircraft efficiency,
utility and excellence; it is one
of the most recognizable aeroplanes
(although sometimes mistaken for its
larger and more powerful brother, the
Cessna 182/Skylane and vice versa);
its value has been and continues to
be well-established and constant. The
Cessna 172 has endured going- on six
decades, and is an undisputedly traditional
design. Classic? Q.E.D..
A2A Accu-Sim C172 Trainer FEATURES:
one of the worlds most popular trainer airplanes.
for both professional commercial pilot training and entertainment.
pre-flight inspection system designed by pilots while operating the
actual Cessna 172.
true propeller simulation.
starter with accurate cranking power.
ground physics including both hard pavement and soft grass modeling.
starts are now possible. Accu-Sim monitors the amount of fuel injected and
its effectiveness to start and run the engine.
airplane where systems, corrosion, and temperatures are simulated even when
the computer is off.
in-cockpit, physics-driven sound environment from A2A engineered recordings.
maintenance hangar internal systems and detailed engine tests including
combustion engine modeling. Air comes in, it mixes with fuel and ignites,
parts move, heat up, and all work in harmony to produce the wonderful sound of
a Lycoming 360 engine. Now the gauges look beneath the skin of your aircraft
and show you what Accu-Sim is all about.
