DeeKnow's Flight Simulator repaints

Here's a bunch of repaints and panels I've created over the last couple of years for Microsoft Flight Simulator. Some of these are for FS9/2004, some for FSX, and some will work on both, it all depends on the aircraft model they're for. The first group are paints of actual flyable models, the second are of AI aircraft that are used to populate the skies with computer controlled aircraft.

Flyable Aircraft

Repaint for the Simcheck (Aerosoft) A300 of the Air Macau (operated by TradeWinds) A300-203F N504TA. The logos might look a little out of place but thats coz the real world aircraft had transfers slapped over top of the underlying logos which is why you might see the boxy surround on the "Air Macau Cargo" text, I tried to make it look like the original. - download

VH-TAA: Qantas A300

ZK-WKF : Alpha 2160

This is ZK-WKF an Alpha-2160 built in Hamilton for the Waikato Aero Club.

N800DT : Cessna CitationI

Cessna CitationJet 1 N800DT as operated by National Business Review (based at Ardmore). The model is actually a Citation-II by Dee Waldron so I blanked out one of the windows, the tail section is different but close as we can get without a Citation-I base model (filename:

ZK-TBM : Cessna Citation-III

Cessna CitationJet 3 ZK-TBM as operated by Air National (based in Auckland). The model is actually a Citation-II by Dee Waldron so I added an extra window, the tail section is different but close as we can get without a Citation-III base model (filename:

ZK-HZQ : Bell 222

This is my first attempt at doing a repaint of a real-world aircraft for the flightsim. The chopper is a Bell 222 as flown by the service based at our local Waikato Hospital (and flown by a cobber of my Father). The repaint was done w PhotoshopEssentials and is a bit rough round the edges mostly due to my inexperience but also coz some of the texture file components are replicated over the model in places which means I couldn't quite get some of the details right. It was a fun experience and the actual sim model by Alan Devin is nice to fly.

AI Aircraft

These are AI only aircraft and require flight plan files to be used in the simulator. They dont include sound files or panels and wont generally appear in the list of flyable aircraft in your sim. These were painted for the NZ AI BizJets project


N146EX Dassault Falcon 900EX as operated by Sleepyhead (Auckland), repaint based on the model by PAI (filename:


ZK-RGB Gulfstream G200 158 (ex N658GA) as operated by Air National (Auckland). Repaint is based on the HTAI Gulfstream IVSP (filename: as there is currently no AI model avail for a G200

Following are a couple of panels I've created for use with flyable aircraft as an improvement for or more realistic layout of the panel provided with the base aircraft.

Transavia PL12 AirTruk panel

FSX 2D Panel For The Transavia PL12 AirTruk. This panel is based on photographs of real AirTruk aircraft cockpits and can be used as a 2D panel in conjunction with any AirTruk model.
