What is Accu-Sim?
Real pilots will tell you that no two aircraft are the same. Even taking
the same aircraft up from the same airport to the same location will result in a
different experience. For example, you may notice one day an engine is
running a bit hotter than usual and you might just open your cowl flaps a bit
more and be on your way, or maybe this is a sign of something more serious
developing under the hood. Regardless, you expect these things to occur in
a simulation just as they do in real life. And under the hood, you expect
your aircraft systems to respond accordingly. This means no more one
minute engine warm-ups. This is Accu-Sim - it puts the
gauge back in the game.
While Accu-Sim is created
by pilots, it is built for everyone. Realism does not mean
you have have to have a difficult time with your flying.
In fact, realism can mean an easier time with your
flying as things react as you would expect in real life.
Common sense thinking applies with Accu-Sim. For
example, if you are exceeding your maximum allowed speed
with your flaps down, there will likely be warnings.
You may hear and odd rumbling telling you, the pilot,
"hmm, something is not right".

We are proud to
launch our all new "Accu-Sound" sound system with over
200 recorded sounds for the P47 Razorback alone.
This new sound system brings Accu-Sim to an entirely new
level. While hearing is a critical sense when
flying, it is even more important for a simulation, as
you are deprived of the sense of feel we have in a real
aircraft. We have loaded the P47 with smart,
intuitive sounds. You will not believe how much
audio can immerse you into an authentic flying
experience. We hope you enjoy this as much as we
did creating it.

Complete 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 big
radial engine. Now the gauges look beneath the skin
of your aircraft and show you what Accu-Sim is all
Airflow, density, and
it's temperature not only affect the way your
aircraft flies, but how the internal systems
affect system conditions, including engine
temperatures. Manage temperatures with engine cowl
flaps and oil cooler flaps.
Use intercooler flaps
to cool Carburetor Air Temperatures (CAT) as high
temperatures can adversely affect engine performance
while low temperatures can lead to carburetor icing.
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 and
smoke will pour out of exhausts as oil is burned
Overheating can cause
scoring of cylinder head walls including ultimate
failure if warnings are ignored and overly abused.
injection (ADI) system. Pushing the engine too hard
without water injection automatically injects more
fuel to keep cylinders cooler, creating realistic
black smoke from unburned fuel.
On hot summer days you
will need to pay very close attention to your
systems, possibly expediting your takeoff to avoid
overheating due to radiant ground heat.
Brand new A2A sound system
allows for many new sounds including dynamic wind,
turbo whine, engine sputters, etc. that will immerse
you in flying unlike ever before. Experience a true
“Open Cockpit” experience.

and realistic vibrations from engine and airframe.
component drag. Dropping your gear will pull your aircraft
realistically as the landing gear is deployed along
with cooling flaps, Ordnance, and even opening the
canopy. Drop your gear, deploy your flaps, or just
try a dive and listen to your airframe. It's all
there and it's all real.
including flaps that can independently jam or break
based on the actual forces put upon them. If you
deploy your flaps at too high of a speed, you could
find yourself in a very dangerous situation.

Accu-Sim monitors the amount of fuel injected and
it's effectiveness to start the engine. Roughly 2-4
shots needed in hot weather and 4-8 in cold weather.
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 temp and oil dilution
level. Now when you start the engine, you need to be
careful and not raise RPM too much until oil temp is
high enough to give proper oil pressure. If you
raise RPM too high on a cold engine, especially very
cold, oil pressure can raise to over 150psi. Oil
pump failure can result. Also, extended inverted
flight (negative g) can uncover the oil sump and
reduce oil pressure. Do not fly in a negative g
situation for more than 5 seconds.

recorded Pratt & Whitney R-2800 engine
in a P-47. When possible, we visit and fly the actual
aircraft, capturing every area that makes sounds,
namely the engine and how it not only sounds inside
and outside, but based on where you are outside. We
also have sounds to indicate how your engine is
performing. For example, it may cough if the
cylinders start getting fouled, or you may hear
components start knocking when pushed too hard. This
all contributes to you, the pilot, from knowing your
aircraft and how to read how it is functioning
throughout every flight.
