Following on from their popular PA-28R Arrow III, PA-28R Turbo Arrow III/IV and PA-28-161 Warrior II for MSFS, Just Flight’s in-house team has developed this highly detailed simulation of the Piper PA-38-112 Tomahawk following comprehensive, hands-on research with a real-life Tomahawk, G-BNKH, based at Goodwood Aerodrome with SportAir. Already a very popular aircraft on other simulator platforms, we are excited to bring you this incredibly detailed rendition of the Tomahawk for Microsoft Flight Simulator, complete with fully accurate systems functionality, high quality modelling and texturing, realistic wear and tear, a variety of customisation options and an immersive sound set recorded from the real aircraft.

The Piper PA-38-112 Tomahawk is a two-seater, piston-engine aircraft equipped with a fixed tricycle landing gear, 112hp four-cylinder engine and fixed-pitch propeller – an ideal aircraft for touring and flight training.
 
The Tomahawk is flown all around the world and our add-on reflects that global popularity. The package features liveries from the UK, USA, France, Germany, Australia and more!
 
The PA-38 Tomahawk for Microsoft Flight Simulator features a native model and 8192 x 8192 PBR materials for the highest possible texture detail and clarity.

See the Detailed Description below for all the aircraft details and you can download the Operations Manual and EFB Manual PDFs if you'd like to take a look at them.

Model

  • Accurately modelled Piper PA-38-112 Tomahawk, built using real-world aircraft plans and comprehensive photography of the real aircraft
  • Numerous animations including cockpit doors, cockpit windows, fuel caps and fuel drains
  • Ground equipment including chocks, tie-downs, pushback towbar and pitot covers
  • 8192x8192 textures are used to produce the highest possible texture clarity
  • PBR (Physically Based Rendering) materials with real-time environment reflections for superb quality and realism
  • Detailed normal mapping for down-to-the-rivet precision of aircraft surfaces
  • High quality dirt textures, including water stains stemming from rivets and panel gaps, and even dirt and rubber under the wings that has been flicked up off the tyres
  • Interactive exterior model allow you to perform a full pre-flight walkaround, including checking tyre pressures, checking the water level in the fuel and even spinning the propeller
  • MSFS ground services support (marshaller and fuel truck)
  • Full support for MSFS visual icing effects

 
Cockpit

  • Truly 3D virtual cockpit right down to accurately modelled seat belts and screw heads - every instrument is constructed fully in 3D with smooth animations
  • Cockpit textures feature wear and tear based on reference photos taken in the real aircraft to produce an authentic environment
  • Dimmable instrument panel and radio stack lighting
  • Tablet EFB for controlling various aircraft options and checking aircraft and flight information:
    • 'Cold & Dark', 'Ready for Take-off' and 'Ready for Start' aircraft states
    • Persistent aircraft states, allowing you to always return to your cockpit in the same state that you last left it
    • Automatic switching of the fuel tanks for use on those long distance cross-country flights
    • GPS unit selection
    • Walkaround mode allowing you to interact with the exterior of the aircraft when performing pre-flight checks, view the condition of components and repair broken components
    • Aircraft failures (spark plug fouling, vapour lock, oil use and battery failure)
    • Flight computer with useful information such as fuel burn, endurance, speed and wind speed/direction
    • Navigraph Charts support
    • SimBrief integration support
    • Interactive map, notes and top of descent calculator apps
  • Fully functional and comprehensive IFR-capable avionics fit including:
    • GMA 340 audio selector
    • SL30 COM1/NAV1 radio
    • SL40 COM2 radio
    • GTX 328 transponder
    • GNS 430 and GNS 530
    • Support for PMS-50 GTN 750 and TDS GTNXi (both sold separately)
  • Paper checklists
  • Many features have been added to help with usability such as the ability to hide the yokes for a better view of the instrument panel
  • Developed using the latest MSFS standards, including intuitive and easy-to-use controls for rotary knobs, multi-position switches and levers


Aircraft systems

Fully simulated, custom-coded aircraft systems based on the real-world manuals, including:

  • Custom-coded fuel system, including an option for automatic fuel tank switching
  • Custom-coded electrical system with fully simulated circuit breakers
  • Functioning carburettor heat and primer controls that affect how the engine runs
  • Fully interactable walkaround mode, allowing you to perform a full pre-flight walkaround of the exterior
  • Wear and tear that affects over 15 components - persistent across flights and varies depending on how you treat your aircraft. For example, your tyres will wear faster if you often make firm landings or operate from soft fields and the grip of your tyres will decrease over time.
  • Failures including spark plug fouling, limited battery life, vapour lock and more
  • Options to fully overhaul the aircraft or randomise the aircraft’s condition
  • Lighting system includes separate lighting control for interior and exterior lighting, including dimmer switches for instruments panel and radio stack lighting
  • Many other details, such as cockpit doors that automatically close with air flow and vibrating engine exhausts!
  • Support for the MSFS interactive checklist system

 
Sounds

  • MSFS-native (Wwise) sound package taking full advantage of MSFS’s capabilities
  • Studio-quality Lycoming O-235 engine sounds, recorded from the real aircraft
  • A plethora of cockpit sound effects, recorded from the real aircraft
  • Authentic audio for every switch, button, lever and electrical system
  • Detailed physics-based effects on engine and wind noise
  • Accurately positioned 3D sound sources (best enjoyed in VR!)
  • Custom crash and scraping effects
