    FSX Native AVRO PWS-18 Uploaded!...



    FSX_NATIVE_AVRO_PWS-18


    By Nigel Richards & Team


    3 models, 6 texture liveries, custom panel, custom Wright (AVIA) J-5b soundset.


    In 1934, the Polish government, looking for an intermediate military trainer, bought two Avro Tutor trainer aircraft together with a licence to produce the aircraft. Production was ordered in the PWS (Podlaska Wytwornia Samolotow - Podlasie Aircraft Factory). In 1935, Antoni Uszacki of the PWS modified the design, fitting it with a Wright Whirlwind engine, produced under licence in Poland. The new engine cowling was much longer than the previous Townend ring type, with a carburetor air intake below it. The wing construction was changed from metal to wooden, better fitted to PWS capabilities, and the rectangular wing tips were rounded. Also some other details were changed, such as a tailskid instead of a tailwheel.

    Oh my! Pilot/instructor version is just awesome. And the sound/power from the big engines is palpable. Well done, all!

    Thanks so much. The PWS sounds are truly awesome. All of these Avro models go far beyond any expectations for Flight
    Ssim aircraft, freeware or payware. Thanks again.

    Thanks for this beauty! Stunning detail, great sound and flies like a dream.

    And I thought, it couldn't be done better, but I was wrong.
    The new .bump and .spec textures make the new models look even better. Simply stunning.
    I'm looking forward to the final FSX native models.

    Thanks so much Nigel and Team !!

    BIG Thank You!!!!

    Is it work for P3Dv4?

    btw.

    the development of this came to PWS-26, near most popular trainer in Poland before 1939 (the first was RWD-8):

    btw. "Polish Khaki" is a little darker (and more brown), here is example:

    Tested in P3Dv4 - works!!! In 3D VC all gauges without problem, but no any 2D panel (its ok for me).

    Thank You again!

    WOW!!

    Usually, I am hard to impress, especially with FSX aircraft. But this PWS-18 is amazing. I've never seen better in a freeware model. The textures, the colors, the sounds, the handling in flight are just out of this world. I've not seen many payware planes as good, and to see this level of excellence in a freeware download, is mind-boggling.
    I'd actually never heard of this plane before downloading it. The screen shots looked intriguing so I figured it'd be worth a look. It is far and away above what I expected. It handles as predictably, and docilely as you'd want a trainer to. I can't compare it to flying any real plane, since I just don't have that experience. That's WAY outside my tax bracket. However, if a real plane flew as well as this one, everyone would be up there in it. Granted, it's no magic carpet. Climbing is a slow, patient business. Aerobatics takes practice, and plenty of altitude. Somehow, I have the impression that is prototypical too.
    Nigel, please PLEASE keep releasing unusual planes like this. Your talent is immense, and the subject matter is a welcome change of pace.

    Pleased somebody likes that version, downwind. To show my appreciation for your enthusiastic comments, I'll include a VC 'Instructor' combo for the next release; AVRO 646 Sea Tutor which I am now in the process of completing.

    What more can I say than a massive thanks to you, Ulrich for making the earlier AVRO releases accessible to P3D users. Huge thanks to you for bridging that gap, Sir.

    Yes, I agree that FSX native materials are making an awesome difference towards the high standards we seek to acheive.

    Many Thanks to you too, YoYo - and very honoured to see she's finally 'flying' once again in Poland

    Nigel, I have to say that you have earned yourself a place among the "Masters" with your AVRO releases! All the superlatives I possess in my limited lexicon have already been claimed and EXCLAIMED by others. So, I'll just tip my hat in salute and says thanks for these Gems.
