A VFR trainer and utility aircraft
It has been a good year for us fans of bush and utility aircraft with many releases for both Prepar3D and X-Plane. Earlier in the year, new X-Plane developer Mad Flight Studio released its unique Spectr-Aero SP-30. Manufactured in Russia, the SP-30 is basically an upgraded version of the Zenith CH-701. Marketed as a training and utility aircraft, the SP-30 is a rugged performer and Mad Flight Studio has gone to extraordinary lengths to enhance the experience by adding some unique features to this module.
The Mad Flight Studio SP-30 is a two-seat, tricycle gear utility aircraft with a 100hp Rotax 912 ULS air- and water-cooled engine driving a three-bladed propeller. An options menu can be accessed from a clipboard behind the pilot seat that allows for saving of the aircraft state, selection of instrument units, cockpit language and whether pilots are visible in external view.
