News! Aqulia 200 Header.jpg


The Aquila AT-01 with its two model variants A210 and A211 is a two-seat Light Sport Aircraft (LSA) entirely built from carbon and glass fiber reinforced plastics. It is equipped with a Rotax 912S 100hp engine and a MTV-21 constant speed propeller. The original Aquila aircraft is built in Germany. With its™s sleek design, the modern interior, state of the art avionics and a MTOW of 750kg it is a popular and cost efficient Training and Travel Aircraft.


This Aquila package of the A210 and 211G was originally released back in December 2015 for X-Plane 10. Updated twice for X-Plane 11, here Picus X have done a complete revision of both aircraft for X-Plane 12. All the XP12 features, performance and dynamics have been totally redone to the A210/A211G aircraft. Including Optimization of lighting, Optimization of lift, drag and momentum, Optimization of flaps and ailerons, Correction of engine vertical and side angle (mitigate P-Effect) and the general adjustments to adopt the physics of X-Plane 12. SASL v3 has also been adopted.


Package features include:

  • Optimized for X-Plane 12
  • Two models of the aircraft in one package 
  • First Garmin G500 adaption for an X-Plane payware aircraft

  • Correct pitch deflection angles for the prop blades along with realistic weight and torque
  • Detailed exterior with HD textures (e.g. place cards, screws, dirt)
  • Detailed interior with HD textures (e.g. modelled seat belts and shoulder harnesses, leather seats, carpets)
  • Night VFR with 3 independent HDR lighting options (instrument backlights, panel, dome light)
  • Custom 3D gauges with in-depth modelling (e.g. floating fuel needles) and HD textures with original place cards mounted

  • Magic Functions for Engine Startup Sequence, Run-Up-Test Sequence, Shutdown Sequence
  • Choke modelled (required for engine startup if cylinder head temperature is below 50° C)
  • Prop strike damage modeled (toggled, if aircraft touches ground with less than 5° negative pitch)
  • Functional Emergency Location Transmitter (ELT) on impacts larger 4.0 G
  • Animated exterior (e.g. Vibrating exhaust tube depending from engine RPM, G-loaded shock absorbers)
  • Static Elements (pitot tube cover, winglet covers, chocks)  
  • Animated pilot with Sennheiser headset and Rayban sunglasses (depending on sunlight)

Notable is that you get four aircraft with the Aquila Package, Two (A210/211G) for X-Plane 11, and two (A210/211G) for X-Plane 12, but note the effects and performance may differ between the two X-Plane 11 or 12 Simulator versions.
