Hello to all!
I just acquired my first A2A aircraft. As a real world pilot (airline) and wanting to get back into general aviation, I thought I would try the Cherokee 180 for P3D. OMG!!! I was truly blown away. Immediately I acquired the 172, 182, and Comanche. I think these planes are top notch. Well worth the price (but don't tell my girlfriend I just dropped 200 clams, she would kill me LOL).
So here we are, my questions. I love the accusim portion of the A2A products. Since I have time in most of the aircraft I just bought, I'm not really looking to learn how to fly a 172. I am however looking to relearn how to fly general aviation. More to the point I have always wanted to own my own aircraft. Since P3D is for simulation/ training purposes
I am looking to simulate owning my own aircraft. I have a xcell that outlines a variety of cost factors. Of course since we have accusim I can replace worn parts. Now we all know that sort of thing is pricey. And we all know the poor owner has to foot the bill for replacement parts.
So the questions:
1. Is there a location where each repair tally's up a $$$ cost (say in a file somewhere)?
2. If not to 1, has anybody done a similar study as what I am trying to do?
3. If yes to 2, where do I go to find the information?
4. If no to 2, than I suggest we pool our resources to get even more realism out of these wonderful planes!
Basically I am trying to simulate owning my own aircraft in as many ways as possible. Maintenance costs are a huge portion of this. And for the curious I am looking to virtually own the Comanche. So if anybody has parts and price list, or anything to that effect, please do share!!!
Again I love these planes and I look forward to many hours of flight! And I look forward to hearing your feedback.
