The Flight Simulator team has started to release some additional airplanes besides the original default ones in MSFS. After the release of the Just Solo 103, and with the ATR 42/72 and the Junkers Ju 52 under development, the team has now launched the Husky A-1C, a very cool little airplane that will take you basically anywhere in the world!
The A-1C is a very capable machine, a good STOL performer that has been a reliable companion for many aviators since its introduction in 1987. It comes now to MSFS in a variety of configurations, with standard or tundra tires, floats and skis.
The Husky A-1C is powered by a 200hp Lycoming engine, which together with its very low stall speed allows it to get in and out of the smallest airfields. It’s a perfect kind of airplane to enjoy the world of MSFS, exploring the scenery and challenging yourself in the toughest backcountry strips.
The developers promise to have recreated the A-1C in “high-fidelity”, with an interesting cockpit that includes Garmin Area 796 touch avionics, digital attitude indicator and a secondary display for engine data. Eight different liveries are provided.
The Husky is a similar plan to the XCub, also available in MSFS, with a loyal fan base that often rivals the Cub’s significantly higher popularity. Still, it’s different enough to provide a slightly different flying experience, and should please anyone looking to land anywhere, no matter the surface: mountains, fields, rivers, snowy peaks, you name it. The Husky can handle it!
The Aviat Husky A-1C is now available from the MSFS Marketplace for just $14.99.
