The Zlín Z-142

for X-Plane 11.41+

History:

This series of two seat trainer and four seat light aircraft was initially developed to replace the successful Zlin Trener series. The initial Z-42 was developed during the mid-1960s with two seats, side by side. It flew for the first time on the 17th of October, 1967.

The improved Zlin Z-42M introduced a constant speed propeller, a larger tail developed for the Zlin Z-43 four-seater and replaced the Z-42 in production in 1974. Development of the two seat line continued with the further improved Z-142, which flew for the first time on the 29th of December, 1979. Changes introduced included a larger cockpit canopy and faired undercarriage. The Z-142 remained in production in Z-142C form until the mid-'90s. The latest two seater of this family, the Z-242 L has a 150kW (200hp) Textron Lycoming AEIO-360 flat-four powered engine.

Changes aside from the engine include a three-blade constant speed prop and revised engine cowling profile. First flight was on the 14th February 1990. Development of the four-seat models, the Z-43 and Z-143, was followed by the two-seaters. The Z-43 appeared a year later than the Z-42, flying for the first time on the 10th December 1968. The Z-42 and Z-43 share the same basic airframe, but the Z-43 features a larger and wider cabin with seating for four and a more powerful engine. The current Z-143L flew for the first time on the 24th of April, 1992. It has a similar structure as the Z-242L, but alike the Z-43 it has a larger cabin with seating for four and a more powerful Textron Lycoming O-540 engine.

About X-Plane model:

Once upon a time in the Flight Simulator's world, there was a Zlin 142 for FSX. This free Zlin looks pretty nice in that era, but the time had gone by, and almost everything changed since. We got P3D3 and X-Plane 10 and later P3D4 and X-Plane 11. The feeling to convert this good old stuff into X-Plane grew stronger and stronger, but to have it with more features, quality textures, last but not least - a much more realistic flight model.

Luckily, I met with Adrián Nagy-Hinst - author of the well known Carenado Cessna C-152 mod - who kindly offered his help to make this project happen. All of the custom features that you'll discover in this Zlin is Adrián's merit and I can't be grateful enough for him. Well, after almost a year of development, finally we got a far-far better add-on compared to the old FSX version ever was! The model contains 350.231 polygons, a lot of custom animations, features, special 3D modelled gauges and full 4K resolution PBR textures.

Features built-in pre-configured Librain effects, custom FMOD sounds - recorded from real Zlín aircraft, a very accurate flight model tested by real Z-142 pilots and instructors. In this pack, you can find 6 various liveries, and one pure white for the talented repainters. An AI version of the Zlin also included for the better experience.
 

Features:

  • Highly optimized 3D model
  • 4K high detailed PBR textures
  • Realistic flight model - tested by real Zlin pilots
  • Realistic custom FMOD sounds - recorded from real M-337AK engine
  • Custom animations
  • Full 3D virtual cockpit
  • Full 3D instruments
  • Built-in Librain effect
  • RealityXP support
  • iPad with AviTab
  • Special 3D cabin lights
  • Setup Sheet for aircraft configuring (Payloads, weights, etc.)
  • Two panel layout (Eastern and Western style)

Special thanks to:

All of our Beta-testers who helped a lot in our development. Thank you so much, Guys!

    The invasion of Ukraine has taken us all by surprise. After some time of thinking how we can best do this, we have found that UNICEF's donation program for Ukrainian children a good place to start. Please donate, either here or to UNICEF directly.

    25% of the donations here (or a minimum of 500USD) will be set aside to aid our community's Ukrainian developers like Felis and Pyreegue, should they need support. 

    The donations already given through the Threshold Fund Raiser will be allocated to this cause.  Currently that is 313 USD and it is added to our donation goal. 

    Thank you. ❤️
