Few aircraft define 'stick and rudder' more faithfully and distinctly than the Cub. Aeroncas, Taylorcrafts, Stinsons, Luscombes, Cessnas and all the rest are but refinements and alternatives to what was created by the advent of the Cub.

  • As with every A2A aircraft, it is gorgeously constructed, inside and out, down to the last rivet
  • Flying qualities built by pilots with unprecedented stall and spin realism
  • Includes standard J-3 Cub, Tundra tyres, Floats, and Skis (nine liveries)
  • 118-page, full-size Pilot’s Manual written by Mitchell Glicksman
  • Visual Real-Time Load Manager, with the ability to load fuel, oil, pilot, passenger, and cargo in game
  • Single code base for both SP2 and Acceleration, so both SP2 and Acceleration will yield 100% full features
  • In-cockpit pilot's map for handy in-flight navigation
  • Fuel delivery system simulated
  • All models include A2A specialised materials with authentic metal
  • Sound engineered by A2A sound professionals

This package is complete with the A2A Accu-Sim Expansion Pack, providing an extremely high level of complexity and authenticity in the aircraft operations - see the Extended Description section below for full details.

Accu-Sim Features

  • Accu-Sim physics creates an entirely new world including true wing, airframe, engine, ground, water, and internal systems behaviour.
  • Passenger On BoardTM adds a new dimension of piloting realism with an intelligent passenger that is aware of the surroundings and talks when appropriate, including being able to spot and call out traffic.
  • Third generation Accu-Sound now allows for a direct connection to the Accu-Sim and FSX physics engine with airflow through the airframe, window, and door, structural creaks, bumps, jolts etc. with three hundred and ninety sounds in all.
  • Piston combustion engine modelling. Air comes in, it mixes with fuel and ignites, parts move, heat up, and all work in harmony to produce the most accurate combustion engine simulation available.
  • Engine has an actual life. Good piloting skills are rewarded with longer life and more reliable performance.
  • New propeller physics means the propeller is constantly active and allows for both hand and air starting the engine.
  • Ground physics realistically rock your wings and buck your tail. Regular tires, skis, and large tundra tires all have their own distinctive ground handling benefits and limitations. Each aircraft comes with its own sound set which is tied in with the physics of the airframe.
  • Tundra tyres demand respect for the size and weight of the larger tyres. Three-point landing on tarmac is highly recommended.
  • Water physics simulate waves, water drag, and creates an authentic 'on the step' experience.
  • Total audible cockpit experience made with professional recordings from three actual Piper J-3 aircraft.
  • Fuel System allows for an authentic primer system with fuel in lines, tank, and authentic gravity-fed fuel-air mixture.
  • Third generation engine wear and oil system including an engine that sputters, spits, and runs rough when damaged.
  • Both engine and airframe physically vibrate and shake, based on real-world conditions.
  • Latest generation carburettor icing modelling, which is critical for the proper management of the Continental A-65-8 engine.



In a simulated world, nothing can be taken for granted. In fact, if the physics in a simulated world are not specifically created by someone, they simply do not exist. With Accu-Sim, the developers have built into this simulation many of the physical rules that we know to be true and which we expect to exist in the real physical world.

For example, if you start a simple engine that is cold, you expect that it will run rougher and less reliably than when it is warmed up. If one morning you start your cold engine and something seems different, your senses will tell you, "Something's not right." This is because you have become accustomed to how your aircraft responds at all times, not just in the behaviour of a single gauge, but in subtle ways - the way the engine sounds and responds to the throttle, the way the body squeaks, or even in the way the air sounds as it passes by your airframe at different airspeeds.

More obviously, if you taxi on the grass, you expect your aircraft to buck and dip as it moves over bumps and depressions in the ground. Similarly, you would also expect to sway and rock if sitting on unsettled water in floats. All of this, and much more, will be experienced and brought to you more accurately and realistically by Accu-Sim. Now it's an entirely new and more real world. It's a world that makes you believe you literally have a physical piece of equipment stuffed inside your computer monitor because all of these little physical truths which cause actions and reactions, and which you notice when they are there or not there, have been created in Accu-Sim.

Perhaps the most important thing this little aircraft will bring to you is honest, true-to-life stick-and-rudder flying, something pilots often forget after flying large, heavy, fast, complex aircraft for a while. You will be actively engaged in flying this Cub almost all of the time. After just flying it for a very short while you will start to feel like a better pilot, and you will be. 

This little Cub represents the most complete and accurately flying aircraft which A2A Simulations have created to date, and delivers the 'Total Flying Experience'.
