The download comes as a zip archive which includes a folder named “vFlyteAir_Cessna150”. Open the zip archive and copy the included folder to your X-Plane aircraft directory, for example “X-Plane 11 / Aircraft / vFlyteAir / vFlyteAir_Cessna150”. The next time you start x-Plane, your newly acquired plane will show up in the »General Aviation« section of the Flight Configuration Screen.
To fully enjoy the visuals of the vFlyteAir C150, please set X-Plane texture resolution at least to “high”, and enable HDR and SSAO. To enjoy the FMOD sounds, make sure your X-Plane volume sliders are adjusted properly. The vFlyteAir C150 has been tested with XPlane 11.40’s experimental flight model as of November 2019. However, as X-Plane’s experimental flight model can change with any new X-Plane update (it’s experimental, after all), we cannot guarantee compatibility with future versions of the experimental flight model. If you experience strange airplane behavior when using the experimental flight model, revert to the default flight model instead.
