NEWS! - Aircraft Upgrade : vFlyteAir Cherokee 140 for X-Plane 12


UPDATE News! vFlyteAir header.jpg


vFlyteAir have upgraded their original Cherokee 140 to the X-Plane 12 Simulator. This is an upgrade, but earlier owners of Cherokee XP11 by vFlyteAir, can get this new model for 30% off the full upgrade price.


The vFlyAir version of the Cherokee 140, is based on a real aircraft (like most vFlyteAir aircraft), so they all have a very authentic and quality aspects to the aircraft. Originally the vFlyteAir Cherokee 140 was split into three distinctive versions, Original (analog Instruments) and Modern (Glass Intruments) and a Trainer aircraft, these versions were later combined, but here for X-Plane 12 the "glass" panel, analog panel and traditional "trainer" panel) are all included in the same package.


The Piper PA-28 Cherokee is a family of two-seat or four-seat light aircraft built by Piper Aircraft and designed for flight training, air taxi and personal use. The PA-28 family of aircraft comprises all-metal, unpressurised, single piston-engined airplanes with low-mounted wings and tricycle landing gear. They have a single door on the right side, which is entered by stepping on the wing.

The PA-28 is the fourth most produced aircraft in history. The first PA-28 received its type certificate from the Federal Aviation Administration in 1960 and the series remains in production to this day. Current models are the Warrior, Arrow, and Archer TX and LX, and the Pilot 100 and 100i. The Archer was originally discontinued in 2009, but with investment from new company ownership, the model was put back into production in 2010.
