Do you guys remember a time not all that long ago before GPS when we had to use VORs and NDBs for navigating. Remember Loran-C lol....accusimmed Loran-C, that would be really cool.
A hunch tells me that A2A would probably do a pre 80s model, seems to fit their style....somthing more 'vintage' then a new model Maybe a couple models..an old straight tail, an N...etc. Time will tell
I don't think they were able to contact the RXP folks for Civi P-51, maybe they will have better luck with the GAs. If I were to bet, I would bet A2A would do an older model, with appropriate equipment, while the 'other' developer's 172 will be a post 90s model with the later avionics. I think that dev already has modelling doen for the RXP stuff from their other releaes.
Anyway, we will see
Great post! I hope you are right... The 1970 C172K I learned in was 10 years older than I am- damn near gave my parents dual heart attacks (that, and the fact my instructor was only 21)! Cracks in everything, old and dirty, and I loved it! I believe that plane was lost in a non-fatal accident several years back- it went to Delaware where it's seats or seat rails were replaced... Either way, the parts didn't match: pilot went full throttle, the seat unlocked and slid all the way back, and voila! One less C172. It was N46475, the records are probably online somewhere...
No real point to that story, except it came to mind, and to say that a large customer base will likely have been exposed to older aircraft in their GA careers (if they were lucky enough to fly). Probably a lot more so than those who fly brand new or newer aircraft!
