This aircraft is just impeccable. I fell off my chair when I saw it was released and I'm still over the moon about it now.
Aerobask outdid themselves, AGAIN. And this company deserves so much more limelight that what it's getting.
Aerobask is the gem of x-plane and once again has produced a 5* aircraft. The panthera is a necessity to any x-plane user.

Wow - just wow!!! Have spent the last 2 hours with the Panthera 3.0 and what a sweet ride it is!! Awesome job by the development team! Very, very impressed!!!

Already purchased and loving it..great aircraft and you have done an awesome job. Looks great, flies great and the information at your fingertips is terrific. Being in Australia I will need to go through the process of loading up all the charts for that. Thanks again.

This plane is superb! Coming from their Victory jet the avionics are easy to use. Thanks Aerobask! I am a huge fan of sexy fast GA piston singles!
in case you missed it, we are flying the most amazing plane ever

It's really quite nice. I've just spent the last hour playing with their GTN implementation. It's not at the same level as the Garmin trainer of course, but as a standalone replication I've never seen anything done quite that well. When combined with their already superb Skyview displays, it's pretty fantastic.
The quality of both the modelling and the texturing is really top notch, especially in XP11.... I would dare say that it's so good that it compares favorably to the very best available for any sim platform.

I am very biased, because of my previous work for Aerobask and for taking part in the beta test, but I still think it's awesome. Lionel's work on the GTN and the SkyViews, as well as Stephane's work on the improved exterior and interior (esp. when used in X-Plane 11), are again a big step forward in Aerobask's development.
Esp. the look and feel of the GTN is so very close to what I'm used to in several years of experience with the Garmin trainer (in Prepar3D) that I nearly can't believe it. Despite restricted functionality, it does feel right. It does not feel as if someone has tried to simulate a GTN, but it feels as if it is a GTN, maybe in a different software version. And in contrast to the Garmin trainer, it also works on Mac and Linux.
Only thing you need to be aware of is that support for SIDs, STARs and approaches is basic, similar to the Epic Victory / E1000. But that's still more than in other "big" GA glass cockpits (incl. the ones I worked on). So if you want avionics really integrated in the aircraft (without external software), or if you can't use RealityXP's GTN, because you're not on Windows, this is the most comprehensive GA avionics suite you can get at the moment.
I have a lot of XP payware aircraft, including the V2 version of this aircraft. While V2 was good, I am not a small GA aircraft pilot, preferring the larger PC-12 type planes. But this V3 might change my mind - it is exceptional work. So far I have not found one bug and that is quite unusual. Did a nice flight in rain and it was great. It felt very real, and the textures are probably the best I have seen in XP10.
Cannot think of even one negative thing to say. Very happy purchaser.
