Aerofly FS 4 – Duo Discus Free Add-On Download


Duo Discus in Alps

Description

The Duo Discus is a high performance glider from the German manufacturer Schempp Hirth. We have recreated this aircraft for Aerofly FS so that you can fly it in the sim. Our Duo Discus comes with several different repaints, some with and some without winglets. The handling characteristics and performance values have been set-up together with a real world Duo Discus pilot and are pretty close to the real world aircraft which make the experience quite realistic and fun.
