Product information "Wings of Silver - Piper J-3 Club"
Few airplanes define “stick and rudder” more faithfully and distinctly than does 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. They are all the heirs of the Cub, and as such, owe homage and their very existence to their venerable predecessor.
Even if you have never actually seen a Cub in the flesh (and this is getting harder to do every year), if airplanes are your game, you have a good idea of what a Cub is all about. Virtually every pilot has flown or knows someone who has flown a Cub.
Perhaps the most important thing this little airplane will bring to you is honest, true-to-life stick-and-rudder flying, and 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 we have created to date. With it, A2A proudly delivers to you the “Total Flying Experience”.
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 tires, Floats, and Skis (nine liveries)
118 page, full-sized 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 specialized materials with authentic metal
Sound engineered by A2A sound professionals
Accu-Sim physics creates an entirely new world including true wing, airframe, engine, ground, water, and internal systems behavior
Passenger On BoardTM adds a new dimension of piloting realism with an intelligent passenger that is aware of the surroundings, 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 modeling. 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 tires demand respect for the size and weight of the larger tires. 3-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 carburetor icing modeling, which is critical for the proper management of the Continental A-65-8 engine
