What aircraft would you like to see following the Texan?

Post dean95c »

I'm sure this has been brought up many times before but what would you like to see the next plane be?
Personally I'd like to see one of the Beechcraft Bonanza 35 series "V-Tail's" developed. The only model we have is one from Carenado and it's ( In my opinion) pretty bad.
My Dad and I have a C35 Bonanza and it's a dream! I'd love to see an A2A Bonanza just to fly it on the simulator with such accuracy.

Tip Tanks
Different Tires
Gap Seals
Vortex Generators

I'd buy that in a heartbeat!

If you were in a position to loan it to them for testing purposes, it might increase your chances. :mrgreen:

I think after the T-6, the focus will be on the piston twin, especially with Scott now getting familiar with his Aerostar. I have a feeling A2A will lead us to an accusimmed Aerostar like we were led to the Comanche, via training training aircraft. I imagine the Piper Seminole would be the the next priority after the T-6.

I still dream of an accusimmed Beech 18 as an eventual twin radial followup project for the T-6. Hopefully someday.

I'm more into GA aircraft than military, so knowing A2A quality, I will buy any GA aircraft, but would love to see a twin engine whether piston or turbo prop not too vintage, maybe from the 70s or 80s (yeah I know, for some of you that is vintage, but not for me).

Base on the A2A YouTube channel I think you guys own an Aerostar 600, if that is the case, there is no need to borrow an Aircraft or money for testing. I know the Comanche was special for Scott since it is his airplane, so the Aerostar would be in the same ballpark. So, my vote is for the Aerostar.

A twin. For a next big non-aircraft, I'd like to see an interface giving me some extra control of Accusim: a study mode, allowing me to customize failures, adjust wear states or set them random, and so on. This is to create scenarios where issues are likely - without knowing what they will specifically be, and also to create classic exercise situations.

I think it's gonna be a twin piston too. Though I wouldn't mind a turbo charged single engine piston like a Mooney 252 TSE or a Turbo Bonanza. That would give us some extra workload handling the engine. Also (maybe especially interesting for flight schools) a Diesel powered SEP would be interesting. Maybe a Diamond DA-40 or a modified Cessna 172?

Ahh so many airplanes out there!! Anyways I hope the T-6 is coming along well. It's been almost 8 months since the Comanche has been released :shock:

The Semihole or similar light twin would be nice, especially if Accusim could reproduce the effects of VMC correctly. I’d also like to see something like the Beech 18, or even better a Lockheed 12A. It might be tough to find one to do research on though. Of course my ultimate A2A aircraft would be a DC3, which I’ve seen requested quite a bit.

In that respect, if I remember correctly, the Seminole was a rather boring candidate as its VMC is lower than its stall speed. :)

LOL, I just took a look at the POH and you’re right. I did my multi in a Seneca which does have a VMC above stall. So I wonder how folks training in a Seminole do a proper VMC demo?

After the Texan, and what I'd LIKE to see, based upon how much I'd actually use it on a day to day basis?....A Tiger Moth, or Stearman. Slow circuits around an OrbX airfield with the sun lowering on the horizon and nowhere to get to in any great hurry....marvellous! :P

Agreed. Looking forward to following the Aerostar like bread crumbs to grandma's house.

+1 for Beech 18

Since I'm dreaming, I'll add, a Felixstowe F5. It's a twin and would be a rad Aircraft Factory seaplane! I'll blame Lewis for bringing it up the other day. I haven't been able to forget about it. 8) [Edit; it was actually a year ago. I just saw it the other day.]

In the mean time, I'll watch my breath and hold my phone. :mrgreen:

It's fantastic!!

I won't be tired of saying, everytime I see posts like these, that the Baron is what comes to my mind. FS world is in so much need of a good piston twin (A2A Quality) and something like a Baron with modern avionics (G600 or G1000 or even Aspen) will definitely catch people's heart. It's such a great airplane to fly, with so much advantages over others! It's the plane I miss flying the most of all the models I flew before Boeings and you just can't find an unsatisfied Baron pilot. It's a powerful and reliable workhorse!

You don't see so much Seminoles around the world, especially private owned ones, and the performance numbers and operation would not be such a great improvement from the Comanche. Of course it's a twin, but it's basically a trainer and with a VMCA so slow that it makes a not so good aircraft to demonstrate the real twins characteristics.

Can't say anything about the Aerostar, never flown one, but it should be a interesting plane compared to the seminole. I would immediately buy this one while waiting for something like ... A BARON :P

Dreaming is no sinning right?

Best regards!
