Features Four different aircraft configurations : Each showing a different pilot / passenger configuration. You will have a choice of
- pilot and front seat passenger
- Pilot, front seat passenger and one rear seat passenger
- pilot and front seat passenger, plus two rear seat passengers
Virtual Cockpit and Cabin
Complete Moving Parts: Ailerons, rudder, stabilator, rudder, and flaps all move. Gear struts compress upon landing, and both cabin door and baggage door open and close.
Removable Engine Cowling
Visible Interior and Passengers: This, of course, should be expected, and the interior visible from the outside of the aircraft is highly detailed, and includes passengers in the seats
Fuselage and Lighting Reflections
Even More Details!: From tie down eyelets, to door hinges, to even some of the screws are 3D. You'll even see the moving control arm that actuates the stabilator, the "petcock" valves used to drain fuel, and an authentic Piper pitot tube under the left wing.
Complete 2D instrument panels and interior views, in our "trademark" high resolution, digital photo realistic graphics. Use the "VC" or use the 2D views, or switch between both.
Some of the features of our 2D interior include:
Main Instrument Panel
So realistic that you could almost swear you were in the real thing. Every gauge is there, just as it is in the real Archer, and operate as accurately as is possible within FS2002. Many gauges features a user selectable "digital readout", which tells you what the gauge is reading; great for those with small monitors, or to obtain high accuracy in setting. In addition, you can also select to place a "cover" over a gauge, so you can practice partial panel IFR. Of course the instrument panels feature near 100% accurate pilot's perspective. As with every DreamFleet panel yo are seated in the pilot's seat, not in between the seats!
Landing View Panel
Essentially a reduced height version of the Main Instrument Panel, with a larger outside v iew for making landings easier, or for enjoying the scenery. The landing view panel features all of the primary flight and navigation instruments, and is suitable for IFR work.
An authentic Bendix-King radio stack is featured, and its operation is highly accurate in respect to how the real avionics operate. It features and Audio Panel, (2) NAV/COMs, ADF, DME, and a choice of two autopilots; either the real Archer's single-axis Century 21 unit, or the default FS2002 two-axis Bendix-King unit, which will add altitude hold and Glide Slope tracking abilities.
They are all here, and you can use these in place of, or to supplement the Virtual Cockpit views. Featured are Forward Left, Left (with visible wing), Rear Left, Rear, Rear Right, Right (with visible wing), Forward Right, and Up views. As with the instrument panel all views are high quality, digital photo realistic graphics. No rendered or hand drawn artwork here!
