Hello, It has been quite a while hasn't it? After a few months of putting off projects in SP I have finally finished this little GA build. This airplane is a light collaboration with @MrSilverwolf who provided paint advice, detailing and overall emotional support. This airplane is also a celebration of me getting my private pilot license. This is a low wing T-tail GA build taking aspects from many planes I have experience I with in the flesh. The cockpit and nose are based on the Cessna 172 and the T-tail/large windows are taken from Diamond aircraft. This is my first more serious GA build and it was quite a fun plane to make!

This plane totes a decently realistic FM although I decided not to model things like P-factor and such since I preferred an easier and more keyboard friendly interface. Rotation speed is around 50-55kts. Best climb is around 70-74. Stall speed is at around 45kts and maximum cruising speed is 120kts.

    I know, just restart, it seems to be a bug/glitch with the plane, I do not have a fix other than restarting unfortunately. @TheLurkingVexedVortex

    The bottom left landing gear tends to break often. https://i.postimg.cc/ZY8QL6FP/Screenshot-72.png

    Incredible! I love your aircraft! Congrats on acquiring your PPL also! Could you do some more GA aircraft? Or perhaps something like an Aero-Commander 500B or GAF Nomad?

    Wow! I love the detail of the flaps not working when the engine is off. That’s something that never would have occurred to me
