Auto Credit Based on EternalDarkness's General Aviation Challenge

My entry to the GA challenge!

Small bug fix here


This aircraft is based off a drawing I did in art a while ago that I sadly no longer have. This aircraft incorporates a sleek, streamlined design with composite materials to create a sporty, high speed aircraft.


Controls:

Act 1: Start engine and activate the control panel (Credit to MrSilverWolf and BaconAircraft)
Act 2: Landing lights
VTOL down: flaps


Flight:

  • Stall speed: 65mph
  • Best glide ratio: 75mph
  • Max rate of climb: 1500fpm @80mph
  • Max speed: 165mph at sea level

  • Take off: flaps half, full power, pull up at 75mph

  • Landing: Full flaps, approach at about 75 mph, hold off until touch down, use as much brake as you want.
  • Cruse: about 80% throttle

Pictures:

Enjoy!

    It would be spring loaded trim with a trigger on the joystick. But, that’s a very minor detail and I didn’t bother adding it lol. @GeneralOliverVonBismarck

    It has no trim slider in the cockpit but you have a thing for it on the display. @jamesPLANESii

    Here is the way the screen works: @jamesPLANESii @AWESOMENESS360
    There is a black screen, and a functional one. When you turn it on, pistons push the alive screen through the dead one do it becomes visible instead
