About This File

ATTENTION!

VERSION 1.2.1

X-Plane 9 version have been added.

VERSION 1.2

In this version are included the 3 fixes I have posted after v1.1 release (Mostly for X-Plane 10):

-Landing light flickering.

-A circle that appeared on FO PFD with HDR ON.

-Added prefill object to improve frame rates (you should see improvement even up to 20%).

Moreover, now when the aircraft is loaded, the displays are bright (HDR-ON).

Also, in this version have been added realistic shadows to the panel when you turn on the cockpit light (the one below the AP panel).

---------------------------------------------------------------

---------------------------------------------------------------

Version 1.1

This version is more optimized for better performance of the low end machines.

Features:

  • Flight model within 10% of the real aircraft (as per manual)
  • Autopilot operations as the real aircraft
  • Many functions and screen indications are SASL driven
  • X-Plane 10 64 bit full compatible
  • Main landing gear object has added (was missing for XP10 in the previous version)
  • Electronic checklist in MFD
  • Real clock functions
  • Engine indication turn red when limits exceeded
  • UFMC and X-FMC config files are included. Those files have been adapted specially for this aircraft
  • New 2-page checklist to be printed in a single sheet
  • Updated Operating manual
  • You can use now the condition levers and flap lever by mouse

PAY ATTENTION:

Use caution when using the throttles! As in the real aircraft, be advancing the throttles too full, torque limits can be exceeded by a lot!

PLEASE: Any questions or problems post them to the forum for this aircraft. I'm visiting it daily so I can respond as quick as possible.

At last, I want to THANK Tony Day, who, with his experience and work, helped me to make this aircraft as real as possible.

ATTENTION TO ALL X-PLANE 10 USERS:

When switching on the landing lights (LDG position), the lights might not come on, instead the will flicker. To fix that download the file below.

INSTALLATION:

1. Unzip the file.

2. Put the file to P180 Avanti II/Customs Avionics folder, and replace the previous file.

3. Go and test it.

----------------------------------------------------

After 7 months of work, finally is here! The Piaggio P.180 Avanti II.

This is an upgrade of the original P.180 Avanti.

Features:

  • New full 3D glass cockpit with emulation of Proline 21 Avionics Suite.
  • Most of the switches are operational
  • Realistic cockpit lighting
  • 170+ customs instruments
  • Various operations driven by SASL scripts
  • Compatibility with UFMC and X-FMC (config files are provided)
  • Operating Manual
  • Checklist

It is designed for X-Plane 9, but it have been tested and performs very well in X-Plane 10 32-bit, with some minor issues. It is not recommended for X-Plane 10 64-bit.

A detailed Operating Manual is provided. PLESE READ IT! Also, a standalone A5 size checklist is provided for printing.

SPECIAL THANKS TO:

  • Robert Pearson, for his permission to upgrade the P.180 Avanti (and the rest of the team, Massimo Durando and Sergio Santagada, for this beautiful aircraft)
  • Vonhinx, for his help with SASL.
  • Dan Klaue, his tutorials inspired me into creating aircraft for X-Plane, and now I creating aircrafts and I don't fly! (well, except testing!)

My tools was Blender and Gimp.

SUPPORT:

At the forum: http://forums.x-pilot.com/index.php/topic/3467-piaggio-p180-avanti-ii-upgrade/ PLEASE: Before asking for support, READ THE MANUAL!

KNOWN ISSUES:

  • A "XFEED" annunciator, may indicate a problem with the plugin. By reloading the aircraft this is solved.
  • In X-Plane 10, the rear legs of the landing gear are...transparent. This will be solved in the next release.
  • In X-Plane 10, the cockpit during the night, with HDR OFF, is very bright. With HDR ON is ok.
  • Since there is no available 64-bit SASL plugin, this aircraft will not work with 64-bit.

FUTURE:

At least one more version (1.1) will be released for X-Plane 9 and 10, solving any problems that will come up. A v 2.0 will be released later, when SASL 64-bit will be available and will have all the new features of the X-Plane 10.
