Carenado Updates PA28R Arrow III & Details Upcoming Update to PA44 Seminole

March 20, 2021

Carenado are continuing to work their magic in the world of Microsoft Flight Simulator with recent news surrounding two aircraft.

Yesterday, the developer released version 1.1 of their PA28R Arrow III with a host of bug fixes and improvements, from interior lighting and window reflections, to improved flap behaviour and flight dynamics.

The full list of changes given is as follows:

  • Fixed interior lightning.
  • Fixed stabilator trim tab animation.
  • Fixed prop cycle for ground check.
  • Fixed OIL PRESS indicator behaviour.
  • Fixed pitot cover missing when setting static elements ON.
  • Fixed windows reflections.
  • Fixed manifold pressure behaviour.
  • Recalibrated attitude indicator.
  • Improved interior sounds.
  • Improved flight dynamics and performance due to simulator update III (1.14.5).
  • Improved battery consumption at low rpm and idle engine speed.
  • Improved aircraft with flap behaviour.
  • Minor bug fixes.

The PA28R was released earlier this month for US $29.99, and is only available through the in-game marketplace.

Also yesterday, Carenado wrote a small but notable post about the PA44 Seminole, released in November.

Carenado admitted this aircraft was, like the PA28R, affected by Update III of the simulator in terms of flight dynamics.

There was no specification of when the update may drop other than “soon”, though other fixes and improvements are also expected to join the improved flight dynamics.

Threshold encourages informed discussion and debate - though this can only happen if all commenters remain civil when voicing their opinions.
