Very interesting, thanks for publishing. I find the decision to develop for Combat Pilot strange, as I had the idea that A2A first wanted to master the physics of jet engine with the F-104 acting as "engine testbed" and then proceed to more sophisticated planes... and now A2A aims to create two jet trainers and one turboprop. Even more strange in spite of two nicely done freeware addons (Dino's T-45 and Iris T-6) and upcoming payware T-38C (by company which name is censored on the boards). The CP planes will certainly sell better with A2A logo, but I rather see the company focus on complex simulation and Accu-Sim development. This is of course written from perspective of someone not interested in multiplayer.
I thought that the second Aircraft Factory plane would be certain 4 engine bomber, what a surprise that it's WWI fighter.
GA airplanes will probably become very popular, as the community demanded them for a long time, and there are not many small civilian airplane able to compete with A2A standards. With the Commanche available to provide information regarding real operations, I believe we will see some features not available in flight simulation up to date
Which P-51 is the civilian cockpit based on? Is the GPS removable or can it be replaced with custom avionics? Flat VC section would suffice, but now providing 3d bezels for most popular 3rd party gauges is becoming a standard.
