News! - Avia71 releases the Piper Aerostar 601P


In a major change of direction from very light but agile aircraft from Avia71, now here comes the Mr Tom Cruise's "American Made" speed buster, drug running Aerostar 601P. And boy is this aircraft fast for a medium-twin as maximum speed is 306 mph (492 km/h) and the cruise speed is a whopping 242 mph (390 km/h)... and yes I know that if you want to be really on the point that the aircraft in the Film (American Made) was a Aerostar 600 and not the later 601P which was the turbocharged engine version, then yes it was...

The Aerostar is a very unusual looking aircraft but you can still see the same design trends of Ted Smith, of whom also designed the famous Aero Commander. Modeling includes:


Ultra High Definition Model
  • 4K Textures throughout
  • Full PBR
  • High quality 3D model
  • Optimized for X-Plane 11
  • FMOD custom sounds

  • Fully functional 3D cockpit
  • Custom menu containing checklists, weight management, cabin altitude calculator, maintenance, stats, options
  • Custom instruments
  • Custom pressurization system
  • Custom animations
  • Disengageable system for saving parameters between flights
  • Customizable documents holder (read your charts, checklists... in flight)
  • Custom fuel feeding system
  • Complete set of original checklists
  • 7 liveries + paintkit


Cabin is very 70's retro period in detailing, if that is your thing.
