Katana DA-20 X (FSX+FS2004)

This add-on features the famous single engine, two-seater GA aircraft, the Katana DA-20. Here, the PC-Pilot is given the opportunity to enjoy a realistic simulation of this aircraft including true flight dynamics and aircraft sounds.

The famous two-seater aircraft for Flight Simulator!

The Diamond DA20 Katana is a light, 2-seat aircraft, although intended for flight training, it is a great airplane for sightseeing. The Katana features are safety, easy handling, performance, it is quiet and good value at a reasonable price. The software simulates the DA20-80 with a Rotax 912 F3 engine, and the DA20-100 powered by the Rotax 912 S3. We directed our attention to realism, but also to the atmosphere of this special airplane. So get into the pilots seat, fly it, feel it, and experience features you have never seen before!

The realistic flight models hold the following features:

  • Realistic flight dynamics (climb rates, air speed, fuel consumption and handling)
  • Realistic soundsets taken from recordings on the real aircraft
  • GMAX model
  • Exact animations of the cowling, gear and flaps
  • Five different liveries
  • Accurate panel with pilots-and copilots view
  • Large, and very readable instruments
  • Complete simulated Avionics
  • Highly detailed virtual cockpit
  • Knee board with extensive documentation

9 out of 10, Canadian Pilots

Award für herausragendes Flugsimulator Design, Flusipilot.de

Conclusion by Avsim.com:
"In the last year, Digital Aviation has been universally acclaimed, first for its Piper Cheyenne, and then again for its award-winning Dornier Do-27. The Katana, while not on the same level as these newer products, is still an aircraft to be proud of, almost three years after its introduction... If you’re training with the Katana in real life, this is probably a small investment (even if your real-life Katana has a different engine). And if you’re not actively engaged in flight training? It looks sporty, it’s easy to manage, and the bubble canopy makes it excellent for sightseeing."

Conclusion by fsimcafe.com:
"The Katana was really made for those sightseeing adventures, and if you have a little extra time and aren't worried about getting there fast the Katana is for you... This is another soon to be classic for MSFS, and I urge you to try it out if you haven't already. "

Conclusion by Canadian Pilots:
"The Katana is one of the best debut products any production team has put out. The Katana matches up to all standards stipulated by its competitors. The piloting of the Katana is no mundane task. The motor glider will never be viewed the same after this production. The feeling of being the pilots is the best I have seen in a flight simulator development. I think it would be fitting that the theme for this aircraft would be "Your Plane." For the hard work instilled in this development I award Digital Aviation and Aerosoft a 9.0 out of 10."

Conclusion by FlightSim.com:
"Overall this is a spectacular model from Aerosoft and Digital Aviation. If you are in the market for a light plane like this then you should really consider this one. You don't need a high performance computer for this one, just make sure that FSX is running well. There are several upgrades that Aerosoft could do in the future but for now this is one on my favorite payware models."
