Some of you may ask, why I don't write anything about the planes or anything. After a long time of writing what I feel is valid and enthusiastic descriptions, which ultimately are subjective, and words themselves can be meaningless. Many other people use boastful words, hype, and fanfare about things that are actually not as they describe. So, I believe, "a picture is worth a thousand words", that spans across all languages, cultures, and is absent of hype and any boasting. What you see, is what there is, is what you get.

It goes without saying, though sometimes it needs to be for new people who may not know otherwise. My flight models are undisputed, maximum fidelity. verifiable, and simply *right*. The aircraft are based on, and built up from the proper core foundation, so that every verifiable number, can be.

It needs to also be made clear, that in today's day and age of 3D structured cockpits and interiors, some may ask, why mine are the way they are. The fact is, that up to every single one of you reading this, will want to rearrange the panel to suit your preference. Rearrange it like the plane you used to fly, like the one you own, like the one at your flight school. Maybe different instrument arrangement, maybe different choice or preference of radios. This is the *only* method that can permit and provide for different panel configurations and end user modifiable panel layout, in a 3D cockpit aircraft. Combine that with that the panels do have 3D render baked shadow effects, and in some cases 3D lamp rendered night light treatments also, which apply on top of whatever you have as your panel.

Some may ask, why all the panels are black. Well, if you go back and look at earlier versions of Pipers, the modern ones did have beige, but due to feedback/request pressure for black (elder style) base panels, I yielded and gave them black base panels. Some may ask why the interiors seem dark, well, that is a very fine delicate balance between reality, as seen by eye in each of two places one can look, and as seen by camera in each of taken intending to see it as closely as by eye, or blasted by flash and with doors open. I have a topic started about cockpit interior brightness, showing actual in aircraft, in flight, pictures and showing a similar x-plane screenshot for comparison. I know many people are used to the camera flash version of interior images... and it's just incorrect up to outright inappropriate. I need to continue on the interior shade topic separately, and take more pictures. As all of the aircraft are, I design the interiors on color calibrated displays in neutral room light. As I see them, is a delicate balance between appearing rich, versus too bright, versus too dark.

Cockpit view brightness/darkness [topic in progress]
viewtopic.php?f=24&t=557

Since this topic comes up *very often* I'll go ahead and reference it here also. This is about how to get your preferred view of the cockpit/panel in 3D native aircraft. This will vary for each person and your preference, and your display size/ratio.

FOV & Verite [cockpit view topic]
viewtopic.php?f=24&t=130

So, as you've scanned through a sickening amount of pictures above, that's not even all of them. Not shown are the alternate liveries available on many of them which are shown on their respective detail pages if you click their linked names.

Remember, everything you see here on this page, is all together, all part of the PIPERS collective ensemble group product, all at $1/plane/release, everything you see here, only $14. Insane, I am; but there is a method to my madness and fairness, reasonability, mutual respect, honor, ethics, and diligence are all key ingredients. These aircraft get ~constant~ service and attendance, they never are let sit. The blurb on the policy page about them tells what I had written about the dynamic, but I'll say more right here. They earn their way, each time over, on a 1:1 basis. No hollow promises about the future, work done is support earned. Or not, it's your choice. Not enough new content since the last version you already have, skip it. If there is something new in there you want, new panel work, interior work, texturing, flight model attention, turning.. or to be current for support. you choose to get them when you choose to. WYSIWYG. Respect and stand_up conduct is behind what PIPERS are, and what I foster in all of my operations. No lies, no hype, no antics. Sales disrespect people. sales_antics disrespect people. arbitrary pricing antics insult people and devalue all involved. "there is a reason for everything" Everything I do, say and make, all has a reason. Everyone has their opinion of what things are worth, their opinion of what other peoples time is worth, their opinion of what xyz entitles them to. I request, and require, people to be reasonable, respectful, and rational adults. Treat each other how you want to be treated.


To quote from a recent review:
I would have to say that this is a must have for X-Plane and every X-Plane pilot needs to have these Pipers in his/her hangar. If you don’t have these planes right now you need to head on over to http://www.air.c74.net and grab these.

I used his Piper Warrior for several hundred hours to become a r/w instrument-rated pilot. I also used the Saratoga to increase my workload, so that when I flew a 172 in the real world, things would be that much easier.  As it turned out, I eventually stepped into a very high performance aircraft (faster than the Saratoga, in fact), so I'm very grateful that I spent the time in his higher end airplanes, too.

There is absolutely no way that I would have reached my current level of proficiency were it not for his aircraft.

I couldn't have said it better myself Guy, thank you for fielding that question, and for saying it like it is.

Hi Jason,

I have just paid for the collection of piper's via paypal and I am looking
forward to downloading them. They look great on your web site and more
importantly I have read a number of reviews regarding how accurately they fly
.
I am relatively new to Xplane 9.7 and have been following the how to fly
instructions on the xplane.org web site.

Kind regards
Tom.


... a much appreciated candid testimonial like that is the best kind there is. fitting to quotes

Jason,

Thanks for the prompt response and great explanation, It all makes sense. Just so you know, all of your Cirrus’s, Piper’s, and Cessna’s that I own all interface and function properly with the FlyThisSim (FTS) panel’s. Not all manufacturers who claim that they can, do.

Thanks again.

Regards,
Bob

I just wanted to let you know that I have never been more pleased with a plane set ever! The PA-34-220T is magnificent
and is almost 100% like my plane in regards to flight characteristics and accounts for the digital avionics in my 2007.

Dear Jason,

after quick research on what acf files where best for x plane and procedure training, i came across a number of boards that referred to you. I have registered through your website with the username marnixsjoerd, after ordering the Piper 1020 package. Please send me the download links for the aircraft.

Thank you for your time,
Marnix van der Galien

Hello Jason,

I purchased CX150 and SR2X tonight after several months of enjoying the Piper series. Your aircraft have unmatched flight characteristics from my time in the whole range of small payware aircraft. I find myself almost always in your free CX172 over my payware 172 because of the Pipers.

Thanks for your work,
Dan Henderson

Hey Jason,

The Pipers 1030 pack is excellent. Of course my favorite is the PA28-235. Only one drawback. Now I am forced to buy the proper control yoke system, as my sidewinder just isn't adequate enough for the fine flyability of these aircrafts. Nice Work.

Carl.

They are lovely aircraft, flew the warrior and piper last night, and I loved the accurate performance of both, and I have to admire the clean look of the panels, and the very impressive frame rate. Getting around 45FPS.

Thanks for your hard work, will be updating every time you produce a new version – money well spent.

Thanks,
Andy

Hi Jason,

Congrats on your Piper Seminole modeling!
I am in preparation for my ATP check ride and it has been enormous help.

Hi Jason,

Thank you for your prompt response, and thank you so much for the generous gift! I truly appreciate it. :)

I've taken a few of the planes out on test flights, and they fly beautifully. The easy-to-read instrument panels are great, too. Since coming to X-Plane, I've noticed that some props tend to exhibit more torque roll than what I'd personally consider normal, but your Pipers feel realistically balanced and are a joy to fly. Love the Mustang and the LFX8 is such a fun little plane! I have a feeling I'll be spending a lot of time in all of them.

Thank you again!

Kind regards,

Lexa
