The release of the new Accu-sim P-51 “Civilian Mustang” is now available in its P3Dv4 guise. Our roots have been in both general aviation and military aviation history, and A2A has used this passion and experience to bring many Warbirds to Microsoft Flight Simulator X. However, this release does our best job combining these two worlds. At the break out of World War II, the skies were filled with aircraft developed in the mid to late 1930’s. Aircraft were still transitioning from fabric to all-metal designs, and for the most part, automatic systems management really did not exist. The height of single-engine complexity would be the P-47 Thunderbolt, which had a plethora of systems to manage (manual cowl, cooling, and oil flaps, manual turbo, manual throttle management, etc.). The pilot was being taxed to just fly the aircraft, let alone engage an enemy or avoid being attacked. Over the course of the war, aircraft were made ever more aerodynamic, engine power was pushed to its limit, and systems were gradually made to work automatically. The P-51 Mustang represents the very pinnacle of this wartime development, and today hundreds of P-51’s fly in a modern world and perform not just adequately, but admirably. The P-51 Mustang today is an outstanding, all weather cross-country platform. It is considerably faster and can fly further than the fast majority of general aviation aircraft, and is just shy of the speed of a personal jet. While maintaining a real Mustang is hobby for the wealthy few, Mustang pilots today regard their aircraft as sturdy and reliable. During the development of the Accu-Sim Mustang over the years, we have taken four test flights in two different Mustangs flying today. The cockpit we designed in this Civilian Mustang was designed over many months with the assistance of Mustang pilots, owners, and our own in-house staff. Owning and operating a Mustang today is a dream to many, and this is what we believe flight simulation is all about. Make your dreams come true.

As always, job well done by A2A! This plane in P3Dv4 is a Great Addition. Thanks.
This airplane is truly the Cadillac of the Skies. Fly her by the numbers and in accordance with the manual and you’ll do just fine. Thank you A2A!
I always preferred the civilian Mustang over the military version. It is great to have it back in P3Dv4!
Thank you A2A, very impressive! Great to have the P51 in P3Dv4!
Best of both worlds: a classic warbird with all the amenities of a modern GA aircraft. Outstanding product!
Hands down the best rendition of a P-51D Mustang for any desktop sim. In my opinion the civ. version adds so much more value to the product, since it can be operated in a modern, mostly IFR environment. The A2A P-51D was all I really flew for years back when I was using FSX, to now see it in the new Prepar3d v4.3 platform is simply tremendous! If the smaller 172, 182 or even the Comanche don’t quite do it for you in terms of speed and performance then this is the fastest, scariest and most rewarding GA aircraft you’ll ever get your hands on.
