Re: A2A Aerostar Emergency Landing

right but i was just wondering if after something like what scott and his son went through if he would return to the sky? that was probably scary as you know... As long as the gear stayed up I wasn't scared about a belly landing because from what I was thinking, there was no way any fuel tanks or l...

Re: A2A Aerostar flights

We are having to write all new physics and code for FS2020 which has taken us into uncharted waters. It has taken us a longer than we would have ever expected but we are continuing to progress forward towards completion of the new system. We expect to see you in FS2020 at some point but still are un...

Re: A2A Aerostar flights

Hi Scott, Is there any clip recorded before the accident day you can share with us? Your videos were very interesting to watch. Thanks Yes, we have about 6 hours of recorded test flights that will be used to demonstrate various things about the airplane. But some of the cameras weren't working well...

Re: A2A Aerostar flights

We are committed to Prepar3D as this is the best commercial training platform available. FS2020 is what we see / hope is the future for the public, just like FSX was. We're building even more of our Accu-Sim technology outside the host simulator (P3D, FS2020, etc.) so starting with our next release ...

Re: A2A Aerostar Emergency Landing

Just officially completed the insurance claim on the Aerostar. It will be bought by an Aerostar parts supplier and, at the very least, the interior will be gutted if this airframe is to ever fly again. There is a 2" thick spinal chord like mass of electrical cabling that goes along the right side, f...

Re: Honeycomp Alpha and Bravo profiles for the Bonanza

Do you know if there is a variable (L:Var or readable from the simulator) that would allow this? A bus voltage or something like that? I've tried some that I found in the L:Var dump that FSUIPC can spit out, but so far without success. Try this variable: (L:FSXBusVoltage,number). There may be some ...

Re: propeller type and performance

That's a good question Zach, we don't wear the internal engine parts more based on vibrations but perhaps we should. We had a McCaulley aluminum prop on our Comanche 250 and later replaced it with an MT wood / composite and the difference in vibration was big. Roughly 1/2 the vibration intensity. An...

Re: P3Dv5 Load/Oil Clean Kit?

Thanks Rob, it turns out there was a typo that created this bug. This is within the Accu-Sim core system so will be fixed at the next update. It may be a week or so before we are able to push this out but thanks again.

Re: Ground friction

Since we do not have the ability to access and compile the ground friction code for P3D we just have to work with it. We were able to address this with our single engine airplanes that allows us to access more of the back end of Prepar3D, but our 4 engine airplanes use a different system which relie...

Re: A2A Aerostar Emergency Landing

That Queen Air is gorgeous but from a business pov, I am concerned about rising fuel prices. The twin market is already so soft and a spike in prices could be the nail in the coffin. I'd rather swoop into a crashed market and pick something up for much less rather than be one of those owners watch t...

Re: A2A Aerostar Emergency Landing

That is really a shame. Especially after all the work that has gone into it already. But sometimes that’s just what it is and if it’s the financially better decision you have to go with it. I hope you find a valid replacement. Good thing you haven’t sold the Comanche yet :wink: Thanks Treetops. You...

Re: A2A Aerostar Emergency Landing

Hope someone can restore it rather than part it out so the fleet doesn't shrink. This is my same hope. The normally aspirated (non turbocharged version) is getting so rare, especially a clean airframe with relatively low time. Considering the overall great shape of the aircraft, this is what I woul...

Re: A2A Aerostar Emergency Landing

The engines were not damaged at all. But legally, if a prop touches anything while the plane is in motion it is considered "sudden stoppage" that requires a tear down inspection. Unfortunately this is a pretty clear regulation that applies even when a still prop just slightly touches a surface. Scott

Re: A2A Aerostar Emergency Landing

At this point it appears the airplane will go to a salvage yard where it may be sold and will fly again or may be parted out. Not sure. I suppose the good news is we recently took a load of video recorded flight tests including deep stalls and I will get any more engine recordings for Accu-Sim and a...
