The Piper PA30 Twin Comanche is 100% X-Plane 11 compatible. We purpose-built this model from the ground up to take advantage of all the new features of XPlane 11: 

FMOD Sounds: We built the sound system using FMOD Studio and XPlane  11's new sound engine. Enjoy effects such as spatial 3D sound location, Doppler effects, custom interior and exterior engine sounds and a variety of different button, knob and switch clicks.

Physical Based Rendering (PBR) textures for exterior and interior objects, to provide appropriate surface reflections and specular high-lights.

Interactive menu system with intelligent Check Lists, interactive Weight & Balance calculator, Pre- Flight Options menu and pop-up Power Settings table – our new graphical on-screen menu system features interactive user choices and selections.

Dynamic pilot and passengers – go to the Weight & Balance menu to add passengers and cargo for your flight. Your passengers will appear in the cockpit of the airplane as you increase their weights on the menu. Extra luggage will appear as you increase the luggage weight. The Total Weight and Center of Gravity dynamically change as you add weight to the aircraft.

Accurate Avidyne AXP340 Transponder with power-on boot screen, Pressure Altimeter display, Flight ID display, Altitude Monitor function, simulated ADS-B OUT, Flight Timer, Stop Watch Timer, and poweroff count-down timer. The AXP340 is the most realistic transponder simulation we've ever created.

Accurate Fuel System: Optional tip tanks are selectable from the Pre- Flight menu. With the optional tip tanks turned ON, the Twin Comanche has six (6) separate fuel tanks. X-Plane does not support separately selectable fuel tanks, so we wrote custom code that simulates running out of fuel on the selected tank. But don't worry! If you get close running out, we'll (optionally) flash a message on the screen to change tanks before you run out of fuel!

On-Screen Warnings and Notifications: 13 different warnings and notification messages will appear on the screen, depending on conditions and triggers. You can turn off the warnings and notifications from the Pre-Flight menu Options section.

“Pop-Out” Instruments and Gauges: several key gauges and instruments can be “popped out” of the panel for easier viewing – VR friendly!

Compatible with the RealityXP GNS530 (sold separately by Reality- XP.com) - we included a “RealityXP.GNS.ini” file that makes the Twin Comanche ready for the RealityXP gns 530W plugin.

Custom HDR interior and exterior lights with custom strobe flash sequence; Custom 3-D Propeller Effects with Prop Feathering; 12 Extra Hi-Res Liveries Included – and a custom Paint Kit is available for dowload so you can create your own livery.


The vFlyteAir PA30 Twin Comanche is compatible only with X-Plane 11. It will not run on earlier versions. Microsoft C++ Redistributales If you're using Windows, Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable is required for proper operation of the on-screen menu system, which uses the SASL plugin. Click this link to download and install the packages: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/2977003/the-latest-supported-visual-c-downloads We suggest installing at least the 2008, 2010 and 2012 versions. However, if you plan to install other complex aircraft for X-Plane, you may want to install all available versions, because different aircraft and different developers require different versions of the C++ libraries.

The vFlyteAir Twin Comanche is a complex, highly detailed model with ultra hi-res textures. Therefore, we recommend that it be installed on a modern, capable gaming-type computer with a dedicated graphics processor.
● CPU: Intel Core i5 6600K at 3.5 ghz or faster
● Memory: 16-24 GB RAM or more
● Video Card: a DirectX 12-capable video card from NVIDIA, AMD or Intel with at least 4 GB VRAM (GeForce GTX 1070 or better or similar from AMD) Although X-Plane.com lists several old video cards as X-Plane 11 compatible (such as GeForce 420, AMD HD5000 or Intel HD 2000), we do not recommend running X-Plane with any of these old cards. As a minimum, you should have a GTX960 or similar.

  • Alternator and Radio Altimeter switches now OFF at startup "cold and dark". They are ON if the aircraft is loaded in flight or engine running.
  • Hide Yokes command now uses default X-Plane dataref so that the X-Plane Hide Yokes menu option works correctly
  • Prop wash sound now only audible from exterior views, and only when viewpoint is behind the aircraft
  • Added cowl flaps drag - be sure to close the cowl flaps to achieve maximum cruise speeds
  • Added new avionics cooling fan sound
  • Power Settings pop-up menu replaced with a more realistic, practical power settings table based on actual flight experience
