A new Carenado airplane is now available for Microsoft Flight Simulator. After the release of the PC-12 back in September, Carenado is now back to the Piper PA-28 Cherokee family with the launch of the Archer II, which is now available exclusively through the MSFS Marketplace.
The Archer II shares many similarities to other airplanes in the family already available for MSFS, such as the Arrow III (available from both Carenado and Just Flight), or the Warrior II. The Archer features a fixed gear and a less powerful engine when compared to the Arrow III, but it’s slightly more powerful than the Warrior.
Typically from Carenado, we’re looking at a very beautiful airplane that takes full advantage of the realistic rendering technologies in Microsoft Flight Simulator. Impressive modeling and textures inside and out are a given and the defining characteristics of current-generation Carenado airplanes.
The Carenado Archer II comes to MSFS with 10 liveries, a tablet that enables some customizations such as enabling static elements, hiding or showing the pilot/copilot, opening doors, etc. It’s also compatible with the popular third-party GTN750 units from TDS and PMS50, which is definitely welcome. The tablet also allows a quick selection between three start-up options: cold & dark, ready to taxi, and ready to take off.
The Carenado PA-28 Archer II is now available for Microsoft Flight Simulator. As usual with this developer, the product is available exclusively through the in-sim Marketplace, priced at $19.99 for both PC and Xbox users.
