Includes Beta Version To Support X-Plane 11 (11Beta1)

Includes version 2.0

This is a VFR-only Cherokee 140, and it is a replica of the airplane that I actually fly from time to time, tail number N3466K. This is a basic trainer airplane, with a very simple instrument panel (two COM radios, one NAV radio, one OBS head, and the basic six-pack of instruments required for VFR flight). This is a great airplane for student pilots and those who love to fly VFR! Comes with six liveries, including the default replica N3466K, a plain white livery and four others.

Save $10 when you buy both the Classic and Original version!

Changes in Version 1.1 Include

Be aware that the SASL plugin requires that Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable be installed on Windows. It can be downloaded from here: In most cases, the Visual C++ Redistributable will already be installed.

New Features
  • Copilot door now operates per the Piper Cherokee 140 Owner's Handbook. You must click the UPPER door latch to unlock the door, then click the LOWER door handle to open or close the door. When you click the upper door latch, the door will open slightly and remain that way until the latch is clicked again to lock it. If you accidentally leave the door fully open while taxiing or during take-off, the door will shut automatically, but will not latch until you click the upper door latch. (BOTH versions)
  • Added new labels to the radio stack to indicate where the "master sim volume (MSTR SIM VOL)" volume knobs are located. These volume knobs control the engine sounds, weather sounds, and ground contact sounds. The MSTR SIM VOL can be used even when the "headphones" are plugged in. (BOTH versions)
  • Added new sounds for the fuel primer lever. (BOTH versions)
  • The pilot figure is hidden in exterior views upon start-up with a cold and dark airplane. If you release the parking brake, turn on the Master Switch, or if the engine is running, the pilot will be displayed. (BOTH versions)
  • Created a new command for the "Master Switch (Battery/Alternator)" that can be assigned to a joystick button or keyboard key combination.
Bug Fixes
  • Autopilot will now properly intercept and track ILS approaches and GPS flight plans and RNAV approaches (CLASSIC version)
  • Improved the reported left roll tendency at cruise speeds (torque roll) (BOTH versions)
  • Added all available liveries to both versions (BOTH versions)
  • Exhaust smoke is now located at the outlet of the exhaust pipe instead of forward of the airplane (BOTH versions)
  • Powering off Radio #1 and Radio #2 no longer causes the fuses to pop out (ORIGINAL version)
  • Increased the rolling tire friction coefficient to reduce the "skittish" behavior when landing or taking off (BOTH versions)
  • If the copilot seat back is down when you select "Add Copilot," the seat will automatically be placed back into the upright position (BOTH versions)
  • Propeller now displays properly regardless of how the pilot shuts off the engine (BOTH versions)
  • The starter button is now de-coupled from the magneto switch - the magneto switch is now not affected by starter operation (BOTH versions)
  • Panel flood light is now red instead of white (BOTH versions)
  • Added TO/FROM indicators to the CDI instruments (CDI #1 on the Original version and CDI #2 on the Classic version)
  • Added new drag-axis manipulators to the OBS knobs and the HDG knob (Classic version). These are in addition to the "click-left and click-right" manipulators. Makes it easier to make large adjustments with the "click and drag" manipulator, then fine-tune with the "click" manipulators. The OBS knob manipulators now allow multiple rotations left and right. (BOTH versions)
  • Changed the Garmin 430 NAV manipulators to use the proper g430 datarefs (CLASSIC version)
  • The ALT and GS indicators on the STEC55X now work per the STEC manual when in APPR mode (CLASSIC version)
  • Added Speed and Distance LEDs to CDI #1 gauge for GPS source (CLASSIC version)
Changes in Version 1.2 Include:

  • Adjusting the radio volume knobs now reduces the volume on the NAV-aids Morse code audio as well as the COM radios
  • ORIGINAL VERSION - The "ON" label on the PAR200 radio is LIT when the MUTE button is pressed
  • User's menu settings for sound volumes will be restored when unloading the Cherokee and loading another aircraft
  • The Starter Fuse no longer pops out during engine start
  • The propeller will not turn when the engine starter fuse is pulled and the starter button is pressed
  • The radio volume now properly controls the NAV audio volume
  • The g430 GPS NAV frequencies are now controlled by the g430n1_frequency_xxx datarefs
  • The ignition key receptacle texture was rotating when starter button pushed - now only rotates with magneto setting as it should
  • Roll and pitch rates dampened to provide more realistic flight
  • Fixed the fuel tank indices so that left wing tank is [0] and right wing tank is [1]. This makes fuel tank selection compatible with other plugins.
  • PAR200 radio LED screen is now unLIT with radio power off
  • The PAR200 radio volume knob properly controls the radio squelch noise and the nav-aids Morse code sounds
Changes in Version 2.0 Include
  • NEW - Compatible with X-Plane 10.50 or newer ONLY!
  • NEW - All instrument panel knobs now support mouse scroll-wheel manipulation
  • NEW - Radio audio volumes now controlled separately - COM1, COM2, NAV1 and NAV2 volume knobs control their respective audio volumes. The Audio Panel volume knob controls ADF, DME and MRKR volumes.
  • NEW - New on-screen situation-aware warnings - including "Open Throttle 1/2" During Engine Start," "Adjust Mixture," "Close and Latch Passenger Door," "Remove Wheel Chocks," "Left Fuel Tank Low," and "Right Fuel Tank Low"
  • NEW - Improved custom sounds with new external engine/prop sounds and simulated Doppler effect
  • FIXED - Static propeller now rotates properly during engine start regardless of the computer speed
  • FIXED - Instrument lights brightness can be changed using the rheostat located at upper right on OBS #1
  • FIXED - User Sound Settings in X-Plane menu are now preserved when airplane is unloaded.
Includes Patch Kit for XP11 Beta users that includes new textures and OBJ files with new XP11 features

11Beta1 Version Includes The Following Updates For X-Plane compatibility
  • New NORMAL textures for exterior objects to provide X-Plane 11 compatible surface reflections and specular highlights

What's missing for X-Plane 11
  • Our models do not yet support the new X-Plane 11 FMOD sound engine (however, the SASL plugin sounds still work in X-Plane 11)
  • Conversion of plugin code to the natively-supported XLUA plugin is not completed
Be sure to choose the correct version of this vFlyteAir model for installation. Choose the "version 11Beta1" for X-Plane 11.
