Aero Commander for X-Plane


The Aero Commander 500S by Nimbus Simulations is out now.

The light-twin piston-engine turboprop was originally built by the Aero Design and Engineering Company in the late 1940s. The aircraft manufacturer was renamed the Aero Commander in 1950 and became a division of Rockwell International in 1965. The initial production variant of the Aero Commander 520 manufactured after 1967 are known as the Shrike Commander. The 500S is the most popular variant with more than 300 examples built.

The package is a replica of the Aero Commander 500S/Shrike variant which is equipped with two 290HP Lycoming IO-540 engines. It comes with a detailed 3D model with four HD liveries and custom sounds and models of pilots and passengers. Custom hydraulic failure and fuel systems along with an authentic AF-520 autopilot, optional GPS and night lighting are also included.

The package also comes with animations and detail such as dynamic fuselage/instrument reflections and a menu for loading payload and fuel.
