Description: The aircraft model was designed by Roger Dial, one of the most talented 3D modelers in the flight simulation industry, and you can be certain that this Cessna 152 will be one of the most complex and detailed aircraft models he has ever produced. Many of you will remember Roger's fine model work from Flight 1's very popular Cessna 421.


In addition to the 3D virtual cockpit and interior, the Flight 1 Cessna 152 features complete 2D instrument panels and interior views in DreamFleet's high resolution, digital photo realistic graphics. Use the "VC" or use the 2D views, or switch between both.


The program also features authentic 152 engine sounds produced by Aaron Swindle. You will also get all of the usual switch "clicks", gyro sounds, etc. An audible environment that along with the visual surroundings truly give you the feeling of "being there".

Pros: Beautiful modeling, excellent flight dynamics, nicely priced.
Cons: Issues with side views in VC. Sometimes won't load all it's textures

A very faithful representation of a 152. It does evrything well, looks good and doesn't hit the frame rates too hard.


My only real complaint is when using the VC and using the keyboard numberpad to look around it doesn't show the model. It is as if you are flying a plane without a VC. Panning around nomrally also does not cause this.

Pros: great model, great looks all the way around
Cons: it slips too much while turning regardless of rudder input

I surely recommend this if you are a student pilot. Teaches you many things about the C-152.
The model look extremely realistic. If you look in the back, you can see windex and a roll of paper towel (LOL).
The VC is great, thats how I do all of the flying. Gauges, buttons, and other stuff works. I really like the fact that carb heat works on this model.
The only thing I dislike is that if you turn, she slips too much even if you use rudder, she keeps slipping.

Pros: Great Handling, Visual model
Cons: ^^Slips wile turning^^

Very nice C152. For the most part it handles good. A little bit much for this plane but i think its worth it!

Pros: Panel is good replica of real aircraft(other that it doesnt have a fuel selector)
Cons: Everything other then the panel

I fly the real thing( a 150 has 10 hp less) in real life and it aint the same stuff. Dont buy it Im sure someone will make a better model/panel integration.

Pros: Dials and switches all in the right place and operable
Cons: dodgy flight modeling

I am currently doing my PPL in a Cessna 152
The thing I like is the switches and gauges are good enough to do all real ground and air checks by. VFR is quite good also with air speeds quite accurate with horizon set in windscreen for given RPM.
However ther is a bit lacking in flight model when reducing power for decent. When dropping from 22 hundred to 17 hundred for gentle decent, the flight model dives unrealistically. From 22 hun to 15 hun is a nightmare and not representative of the real flight model at all.
This is why I give only a 7.
Visualy etc all ok, VC a bit fuzzy though just the flight model lets it down. A patch would bring it up to a 9 or 10, what about a patch Flight1 for all us 152 fans?


A 152 as good as 172 Skyhawk ( which I have also ) would be great!!!!!


By all means it is worth the money, but could be a bitt better. Not sure if there is a better 152 on the market at the moment though!


Best Regards

Pros: Nice overal model.
Cons: Issues with the VC

This is a very good plane for a person that want to try a payware but doesnt want to take the big leap. This plane could be used to try and see the diferences between payware and freeware so that then he can take the big leap of buying biggere better (more expensive) payware aircrafts.

Pros: model, panel, sound
Cons: flat controls, textures

It only has one texture, but thats OK. The vc is pretty good, but the yokes are flat. The best part is that when you start the plane it says "clear prop".

Pros: Cheap, Panel, FPS
Cons: VC Detail

Not very fun to fly, but what can you expect from a not very fun aircraft.
