NEWS! - Aircraft Updated : PAC CT/4E Airtrainer v3.0 by vSkyLabs


NEWS! - PAC Airtrainer by vSkyLabs_News header.jpg


The little Pacific Aerospace Corporation CT/4 Airtrainer has already had two X-Plane 12 patches, the last one was v2.2a (15th February 2023), but here is the really official X-Plane 12 version in v3.0 of the aircraft, plus a few nice updates and touches to this extremely nice trainer aircraft.


The Pacific Aerospace Corporation CT/4 Airtrainer series is an all-metal-construction, single-engine, two-place side-by-side seating, fully aerobatic, piston-engined, basic training aircraft that is manufactured in Hamilton, New Zealand.

There are some interesting details in this v3.0 update...  the AEIO engine has been tuned, and the airfoils have been revised. PBR has been added to the External and Internal textures and there is better enhancement for VR (Virtual Reality). Finally the FMOD sound system has been updated to v2.


V3.0 Changelog
Flight Dynamics:
  • Inverted flight fuel-tank is now simulated (allows maximum 10 seconds of inverted flight/negative g).
  • AEIO-540-L1B5 Engine tune-ups:
  • Power tuneups including power gradients calibration.
  • Fuel consumption curve update including cruise performance.
  • Airfoils update.
  • PRB setup for interior and exterior models to fall in line with the latest X-Plane 12 rendering aspects.
  • Various 3-d modeling enhancement for the interiors.
  • Paint-kit update.
  • 3-d HUD was added (optional feature).
  • New FMOD 2 sound pack.
  • Manual update rev.004.
  • Added Lycoming O-540/I540 performance charts.
  • Added 'Essentials' pdf file with assignments summary.










This project is part of the VSKYLABS 'Test-Pilot' series, designed specifically for use with X-Plane cutting edge Experimental Flight Model.


Images are courtesy of vSkyLabs...  the PAC Airtrainer is availble for both X-Plane 12 and X-Plane 11, however the XP11 version does not have the effects and features that is available in X-Plane 12.


I really loved the quality of the PAC in X-Plane 11, so an update to X-Plane 12 quality would bring out even more of that exceptional realism!
