If any aeroplane ever deserved to be called “classic”, then the venerable and ubiquitous Cessna 172 in all of its many variations surely deserves that title. It is a time-tested benchmark of aircraft efficiency, utility and excellence; it is one of the most recognizable aeroplanes (although sometimes mistaken for its larger and more powerful brother, the Cessna 182/Skylane and vice versa); its value has been and continues to be well-established and constant. The Cessna 172 has endured going- on six decades, and is an undisputedly traditional design. Classic? Q.E.D..

  • Experience one of the world’s most popular trainer airplanes.
  • Designed for both professional commercial pilot training and entertainment.
  • Immersivepre-flight inspection system designed by pilots while operating the actual Cessna 172.
  • A true propeller simulation.
  • Electric starter with accurate cranking power.
  • Dynamic ground physics including both hard pavement and soft grass modeling.
  • Primer-only starts are now possible. Accu-Sim monitors the amount of fuel injected and it’s effectiveness to start and run the engine.
  • Persistent airplane where systems, corrosion, and temperatures are simulated even when the computer is off.
  • Immersive in-cockpit, physics-driven sound environment from A2A engineered recordings.
  • Complete maintenance hangar internal systems and detailed engine tests including compression checks.
  • Piston combustion engine modeling. Air comes in, it mixes with fuel and ignites, parts move, heat up, and all work in harmony to produce the wonderful sound of a Lycoming 360 engine.  Now the gauges look beneath the skin of your aircraft and show you what Accu-Sim is all about.
  • Authentic Bendix King Avionics stack including the KMA 26 Audio Panel, two KX 155A NAV/COMMS, KR 87 ADF, KT 76C Transponder, KN 62A DME, and KAP 140 Two Axis Autopilot with altitude pre-selection.
  • Three in-sim avionics configurations including no GPS, GPS 295, or the GNS 400.  Built-in, automatic support for 3rd party GNS 430 and 530.
  • As with every A2A aircraft, it is gorgeously constructed, inside and out, down to the last rivet.
  • Designed and built to be flown “By The Book.”
  • Visual Real-Time Load Manager, with the ability to load fuel, people, and baggage in real-time.
  • Four naturally animated passengers that can sit in any seat including the pilot’s.
  • 3D Lights ‘M’ (built directly into the model).
  • Pure3D Instrumentation now with natural 3D appearance with exceptional performance.
  • Atotal audible cockpit and ound engineered by A2A sound professionals.
  • In cockpit pilot’s map for handy in-flight navigation.
  • Authentic fuel delivery includes priming and proper mixture behavior.  Mixture can be tuned by the book using the EGT or by ear.  It’s your choice.
  • All models include A2A specialized materials with authentic metals, plastics, and rubber.
  • Airflow, density and its temperature not only affect the way your aircraft flies, but how the internal systems operate.
  • Real-world conditions affect system conditions, including engine temperatures.
  • Spark plugs can clog and eventually foul if the engine is allowed to idle too low for too long. Throttling up an engine with oil-soaked spark plugs can help clear them out.
  • Overheating can cause scoring of cylinder head walls which could ultimately lead to failure if warnings are ignored and overly abused
  • Engine, airframe, cockpit panel and individual gauges tremble from the combustion engine.
  • Authentic drag from the airframe and flaps
  • System failures, including flaps that can independently jam or break based on the actual forces put upon them. If you deploy your flaps at too high a speed, you could find yourself in a very dangerous situation.
  • Authentic battery. The battery capacity is based on temperature. The major draw comes from engine starting.
  • Oil pressure system is affected by oil viscosity (oil thickness). Oil viscosity is affected by oil temperature. Now when you start the engine, you need to be careful to give the engine time to warm
  • Eight commercial aviation sponsors have supported the project including Phillips 66 Aviation, Champion Aerospace, and Knots2u speed modifications.

    I had to wait a couple of years… no one had developed a ‘as realistic as it gets’ model of the Cessna 172, in some more detail the Cessna 172R/172S. Some time ago A2A (the A-team as I use to say – ) has very successful accomplished this mission! It would take the lenght of a typical reference book, so I simplify it and recommend reading some of the books instead of describe all here again.
    But one small detail I’ll nevertheless list it here so you can imagine how realistic it is all in all. So: If you (and your passengers) are sitting in the airplane it may very realistic occur that the inner side of the windows get steamy and you have to open the door/window etc. Some user were not aware of this feature and called support not knowing that this is a realistic feature, not a bug!
    So all I can additionally say is: Thanks to A2A for giving this bird in our hands.

    What can I say, if you want a sim to assist (but not totally cover) real world flight training , then this is it. Particularly for processes and procedures. Well done A2A.

    I have more than 200 hours as a CFII in c172R & S models. A2A is a brand of excellence and this rendition of a c172 is truly “as real as it gets.”

    This was my second accu-sim plane but first review. The first being the Comanche but after getting the Comanche I felt it was better for me to start off with the basics and really enjoy the attention to detail. This offering is considered a trainer and that is exactly what it will do. It will train you to read the manual and understand why things are done a specific way. Think you know the proper way to start the 172…well you might not and a flooded engine will be your “reward”. Like to run the engine rich all the time…perhaps some fouled spark plugs are in your future. Treat the plane poorly and there will be consequences for that as well. Perhaps not this flight or the next but keep doing it and you may find yourself running through your emergency checklist for a failure. Even little things like lowering the RPMS too low where the battery isn’t being properly charged and watch the lights dim. Everything on this offering is beautifully modeled from looks to system and flight model accuracy. Don’t worry, the manual for the C172 is fantastic and the system gives plenty of easily accessible options so you can get involved and as authentic as you would like. This is a great classic plane that everyone should have in their hangar for when they want to get back to the basics or start their flight sim career off.

    If you want to be a pilot you must first get bored flying Cessna.
    If you’re already bored then only with an A2A plane.
    The accuracy of the representation is amazing.
    Well done.

    For the very first time, I bought an A2A plane in which I had real life experience (I even flew in F-GOAP pictured here !).
    And without having an exceptional knowledge in aerodynamics, this made me realize firsthand the overall quality of A2A products in general. I was very quickly able to notice that all I loved and hated about this plane was faithfully simulated. The first GA plane made by A2A was already a masterpiece. Keep em coming !

    Beautifull product. Extremely accurate and it´s feel so real, like the real aircraft. A2A is amazing even on the small details and for sure I will buy anothers A2A birds.

    One of the best purchases I ever made for flight sim. I bought this years ago and it’s still my favorite. Just bought the A2A Comanche and loving it as well. Glad to see the new website and new store. The old was really in need of replacement. Couple A2A’s GA aircraft with a VR headset and enjoy pure bliss. Once you see it in VR and see the truly remarkable 3D gauges you’ll be blown away. I’m happily (and finally) going for flight training to get my PPL and soon after, IFR (I hope). Great to use this to recap my day’s lessons. I only wish A2A would slightly lower their prices or at least have more sales. You certainly do get what you pay for, but it’s a review and that’s my opinion.

    I have been flying sims since the mid 80’s and have tried almost every platform developed in the GA industry. I have to say this is hands down the best GA 172 model I have flown that’s available for home simulation. I’ve been flying A2A’s C172 for 3 years now and I’ve never been more addicted to an aircraft as this. Sure this is just a C172, but this is the iconic trainer that all development companies hope to master in their GA fleet. A2A has done just that; they have mastered this aircraft to fly and respond just as in real life. Every function of the plane is modeled to precise detail. The radios and avionics all function and respond just as they do in real life. To top it off, when you buy an A2A plane, you aren’t just buying a plane for your simulator. You are also joining a community made of enthusiasts who are dedicated to the immersion feeling you get when you fly an A2A plane. People who are always looking for ways to expand that immersion and keep the planes updated with the new technology. After 3 years of flying this beauty, I still fly this plane several times a week and find myself taking care of it just as you would with a real aircraft. I’m almost positive you will certainly enjoy this aircraft and any other aircraft from the A2A team. Happy Flying!!!
