News! - Aircraft Released! : Aero Commander 500S Shrike HD Series by Carenado


I the space of a month we now have another Aero Commander with Nimbus's version and now this "Shrike" version is by Carenado.




So what is the "Shrike" version. Basically it is just a company name change more than a distinctive version, and was all the Piston-engined versions that were manufactured after 1967.





Original 500S Aero Commander autopilot installed
Default X-Plane GNS530 installed
HD quality textures (4096 x 4096)
350 pixels / meter textures
Custom audio plugins with extra effects for added realism
3D gauges
Original HQ digital stereo sounds recorded directly from the real aircraft
Customizable panel for controlling window transparency, instrument reflections and static elements such as wheel chocks and turbine inlet/exhaust covers.
Realistic behavior compared to the real airplane. Realistic weight and balance. Tested by real pilots.
Realistic 3D night lights effects on panel and cockpit.
Individual passenger 3D reading lights and numerous HDR lighting effects.
Dynamic loading/unloading of 3D parts and plugin logic for FPS optimization.


This is a Carenado, which the name alone signifies quality and that high design craftmanship that we have come to expect, you are not going to be disappointed here with this Commander either.

6 HD liveries
1 HD Blank livery
500S Emergency Checklist PDF
