NEWS! - Aircraft Released - Piper PA28-161 Warrior II XP12 by Aerosphere Simulations _Header.jpg


Aerosphere have released the Piper PA28-161 Warrior II in X-Plane 12. This newly released aircraft is an upgrade, not an update of the original 2017 X-Plane 10 Warrior (so a full price purchase), that was back then later converted to X-Plane 11. This new model has come full circle with all new 3D modeling and textures and a whole host of other changes to fit X-Plane 12, such as the rain and new lighting. 


The original Cherokees were the Cherokee 150 and Cherokee 160 (PA-28-150 and PA-28-160), which started production in 1961 (unless otherwise mentioned, the model number always refers to horsepower). Piper then reintroduced the Cherokee 150 in 1974, renaming it the Cherokee Warrior (PA-28-151) and in giving it the Archer's stretched body and a new, semi-tapered wing. The model is a four-seater, fixed landing gear landplane, Lycoming O-320-D3G or O-320-D2A engine of 160 hp (119 kW), gross weight 2,325 lb (1,055 kg). First certified on 2 November 1976. Certified on 1 July 1982 for gross weight of 2,440 lb (1,107 kg).

Towards the end of last year I bought a couple of the Aerosphere releases as they said (and still say in the Org store) ‘Support for XP12 when available’


Those planes still have no XP12 versions. Yet here we have a new XP12 release from the developer. So surely ‘Support for XP12’ is ‘available’?
