Aerostar 700 Superstar

For Flight Simulator 2004

The Aerostar is a twin engine prop aircraft for light transportation and executive travel use. It is known for its exceptional power and maneuverablility.

The Aerostar is one of the fastest twin piston prop GA aircraft of its type. The very appearance of this aircraft with its swept-back tail and streamline nose suggests speed. The Aerostar is one of the greatest handling GA twins and is often considered the sports car of its class by its enthusiastic pilots. With a cruise speed up to 270 knots using a pair of 325 or 350hp Lycoming engines. The Aerostar is one of the fastest twin piston prop GA aircraft of its type.

The Aerostar 700
The very appearance of this aircraft with its swept-back tail and streamline nose suggests speed. The Aerostar is one of the greatest handling GA twins and is often considered the sports car of its class by its enthusiastic pilots.

This design was radically different than anything previously built by Piper, which decided to purchase the design rights from Theodore R. 'Ted' Smith, the Aerostar's creator, in 1978. At that time Piper wanted to add performance aircraft to its already extensive product line. The aircraft was originally put into production by Ted Smith in 1969 as the Aerostar 600. In 1972 the pressurized model 601P was built along with the prototype for what became the 700 Superstar.
The Superstar manages to push the cruise speed up to 270 knots using a pair of 325 or 350hp Lycoming engines, making it one of the fastest twin piston prop GA aircraft in the air. 

Aerostar owners world wide are among the most enthusiastic aircraft owners out there, forming owners associations and "fan magazines".  The Aerostar is considered an "aviation sports car" for its nimble handling and performance.

Recommended System Specs
Microsoft Flight Simulator 2004  required.
Dual Core microprocessor or higher with 2 GHz MHz + speed and 2 MB RAM minimum.
Windows 10, 8, 7, Vista or XP. 32 or 64 bit.
Nvidia or ATI Radeon based 3D accelerator video card with full antialiasing and T&L lighting capability and a minimum of 512 MB onboard RAM.
SoundBlaster Live or equivalent 128-bit DirectX sound device.
Up-to-date DirectX video and sound drivers.
Obviously, higher end systems with quad-core processors and 3.0 GHz+ speed  CPU, 4+ GB system RAM and 1024+  MB or preferably video RAM will perform much better.
 
Immersion Factor

The Aerostar represents a commitment to our level of detail in both aircraft and flight modeling.

 

The advanced flight model of the Aerostar features true asymmetric torque not found in standard Flight Simulator flight dynamics. All aerodynamic characteristics are modeled precisely according to its real world counterpart.

 

Our systems modeling includes everything you would find in an actual Aerostar, right down to the electrical system.
