Following on from their PA-28 series, C152 and Duchess Model 76, this highly detailed simulation of the PA-38 Tomahawk is being developed by Just Flight's in-house team following comprehensive, hands-on research with a real-life Tomahawk.
 
The PA-38 Tomahawk is a two-seater, piston-engine aircraft equipped with a fixed tricycle landing gear, 112hp four-cylinder engine and fixed-pitch propeller – an ideal aircraft for touring and flight training.
 
The PA-38 is flown all around the world and our add-on reflects that global popularity. The package will feature liveries from the UK, USA, Canada, France, Australia and Germany.


Model

  • Accurately modelled PA-38 Tomahawk, built using real-world aircraft plans and comprehensive photography of the real aircraft
  • Numerous animations including passenger doors, cockpit window, sun visors and engine exhaust
  • Ground equipment including chocks and tie-downs
  • HD textures are used to produce the highest possible texture clarity
  • Bump and specular mapping used throughout the aircraft to produce a truly 3D feel

Cockpit

  • A truly 3D virtual cockpit right down to accurately modelled seat belts and screw heads - every instrument is constructed fully in 3D with smooth animations
  • Authentic fuel and RPM gauge needle 'wobble'
  • Dimmable instrument lighting
  • Cockpit textures feature wear and tear based on reference photos taken in the real aircraft to produce an authentic environment
  • Interactive engine start checklist
  • Interactive checklists for every stage of flight
  • Panel state system which will automatically save the panel state whenever a flight is saved and reload the panel state whenever that flight is loaded
  • Aircraft configuration system that will allow you to choose between 'cold & dark' or 'ready for take-off'
  • Fully functional and comprehensive IFR-capable avionics fit
  • Flight computer panel with useful information such as fuel burn, endurance, speed and wind speed/direction
  • Flight1 GTN and GNS integration in the virtual cockpit (Flight1 GTN/GNS sold separately)
  • Functional control lock and removable ignition key for an immersive start-up experience

Aircraft systems

  • Custom-coded electrical system with functional circuit breakers for isolating instruments and systems
  • Functioning carburettor heat and primer controls, including primer simulation for cold weather operations
  • Failures including spark plug fouling, limited battery life, vapour lock and more
  • Refill menu for quick and easy refilling of fuel and oil, and recharging of the battery

Liveries

The PA-38 Tomahawk will be supplied with a range of liveries from the UK, USA, Canada, France, Australia and Germany.
