WB–Sim – 172SP Classic Enhancement v1.0.5

Note: This provides a significant boost to the realism of the default Cessna 172 Skyhawk (standard, float plane and ski plane) included in the Deluxe or Premium Deluxe edition of Microsoft Flight Simulator. If you only own the standard edition of Microsoft Flight Simulator, you can download the Cessna 172 Skyhawk here.

Note: Slightly renamed the add-on folder from “wbsim-aircraft-c172sp-classic-172X” to “wbsim-aircraft-c172sp-classic”. As always make sure to remove the previous version before updating.

Note: If you’re using the PMS50 GNS530 mod, please read the manual. It is recommended to also use the PMS50 GNS530 “data” mod with it and rename the folder to “z-pms50-gns530-data”, otherwise any custom config values you have set will not be loaded (weather radar, metar token, etc.)

– Pilot weight not state saving – fixed
– Autopilot heading following magnetic instead of gyro – fixed
– Unable to add flight plans into the Garmin – fixed
– Use of the PMS data mod is recommended so that the config and FPLs do not get deleted on plane updates.
– Major file restructure leaving base plane intact – finished
– Ground eye candy added – finished
– Visual effect behavior correctly synchronized across multiplayer – done
– AP baro setting not saving – fixed
– Annunciator test switch interaction – fixed
– “No Pants” plane version – added
– Flight model tweaks – done
– Engine oil temp/pressure logic tweaks – done
– Plug fouling logic tweaks – done
– M803 Clock LT 12/24H format choice – added
This add-on from developer WB-Sim provides a significant boost to the realism of the default Cessna 172 Skyhawk (standard, float plane and ski plane) included in the DELUXE or PREMIUM DELUXE edition of Microsoft Flight Simulator, with enhancements to the electrical system and many upgrades to the default cockpit instrumentation.

Engine wear and tear is now modelled and insufficient maintenance will have consequences for your Skyhawk!

Electrical system:

• Dynamic battery voltage drop
• Correct ammeter display
• External charging available
• Accurately working relays
• Battery amperage subject to temperatures
• Functional circuit breakers, which may trip from faulty equipment

Cockpit and equipment:

• Optional state saving with 90+ points being saved so that your plane will be just as you left it
• Gyro spin-up animations
• Custom lighting throughout, dims if voltage is low
• Gauge needles subject to engine vibrations
• ADF needle subject to noise
• ADF needle instrument upgraded to the KI 227-01, which slaves the ADF card to the directional gyro
• Working cabin heat/defrost
• Fully functional M803 clock, including settable FT alarm and ET countdown mode
• Operational MD-41 GPS annunciator
• PMS GNS 530/430 included
• Custom-coded KAP140 autopilot corrects and adds a lot of missing features including accurate hold altitude, functional ALT arming, 20ft altitude adjustments and aural alerting
• Enhanced KT76 transponder, with dynamic radar pings and correct dimming function
• KR87 ADF with proper testing feature and audible ET countdown alarm
• All Bendix units feature an accurate font, and the KAP140 and KR87 have auto-dimming displays

Engine wear and tear:

• Spark plug fouling
• General engine wear
• Fuctional engine priming
• Starter overheating
• Oil usage


• Everything simulated may have consequences if not maintained. From gradual power loss as the hours accumulate, fouled plugs and engine failure from lack of oil, to the struts getting ripped from the fuselage from too many hard landings
