These are great General Aviation aircraft, and for me the standouts were the 300CBi and the Piper Seneca. The Seneca’s now my favorite ILS approach trainer because it helps me nail it every time as opposed to the sometimes not-too-bright stock twin in FSX, the Baron 58.
Now be advised. All this graphical goodness is going to come at a price. You will notice slower performance over the stock aircraft as these aircraft are rendered in much greater detail. If moderately powered, your rig will chug along trying to run these things, so understand you need a beefier rig than the normal FS fare to get these to run and run well with the graphic settings cranked-up.
For the price (five bucks an aircraft) you cannot go wrong with this add-on if you’re fan of bug-bruisers.
• Gorgeous detail
• Liveries from three nations
• Neat little editing tool
• Get it for the Seneca and 300CBi alone
• Really weird sound quality
• Graphical glitches with props and rotors
• The Cessna C152 just doesn’t quite measure up
• FPS hit because of the level of detail
