Advanced Custom Avionics
The TorqueSim/RealSimGear Entegra simulation is setting the bar for X-Plane GA Avionics. The custom developed avionics suite accurately replicates the Entegra avionics, both with PFD and MFD functions. This project has been a massive undertaking in developing our first fully-custom avionics package. Simulating the Entegra R8 flight deck will provide the ultimate platform for flying and learning. Also, new to the aircraft, a popup Angle of Attack indicator!
The Entegra PFD features a proper boot sequence, simulated avionics modules, and more. The altimeter of course can be switched between InHg and Mb units. The CDI can show (and drive the autopilot) from either GPS 1, GPS 2, NAV 1, or NAV 2!
The Entegra MFD has many different distinct modes in which it operates. The main mode, “MAP” features a gorgeous terrain rendering system. This is based on a short-term caching tiling system to optimize performance. Tiles are regenerated on-the-fly throughout flight, on a separate thread from the simulator. Airports, runways, VORs, NDBs, FIXs, traffic, and the flight plan are all overlaid on top of the terrain base map. Engine indications, as well as a brief flight plan overview are also shown. The Terrain Awareness and Warning System (TAWS) depicts the terrain relative to the current altitude, indicating areas of terrain conflicts on a graduating scale. This helpful mode removes all irrelevant info and lets the pilot focus on safely navigating their aircraft around terrain. “TRIP” and “NRST” are very handy for knowing your flight plan and surroundings. The TRIP page shows your waypoints from the GPS and provides helpful details including the distance, ETA, and estimated fuel at each waypoint. The NRST page shows the nearest Airports, VORs, NDBs, and FIXs. There is also a detailed airport view that shows the runway layout, frequencies, and elevation! The checklists for the aircraft are also fully integrated into the MFD. The proper procedures for normal flight, emergencies, and system malfunctions can all be viewed and followed. Of course, the Entegra Engine page is also intricately modeled. It features custom gauges, Lean-assist functionality, and the ability to set the onboard fuel via the fuel-totalizer.
The Entegra pairs perfectly with multiple GPS options. The GPS stack options are:
- 2x Default/RealityXP GNS 430
- 1x RealityXP GTN 750 + RealityXP GTN 650
- 2x RealityXP GTN 650
(RealityXP Avionics sold separately)
Note: The default GNS 430 avionics do not expose approach waypoint information. SIDs, STARs, and enroute flight plans will show up on the Entegra MFD, but approaches will not, due to this Laminar Research limitation. If this changes, we will integrate full waypoint drawing. This does not affect the HSI and flying approaches, just the depiction on the MFD. RealityXP avionics show waypoints from all phases of flight without issue.
Also simulated, the GTX 330 transponder and STEC-55X Autopilot!

3D Model and Sounds
The TorqueSim SR22/22TN has been meticulously detailed to provide for the most in-depth visual model as possible. The aircraft makes full use of 4K PBR textures, ensuring the highest level of visual fidelity. All the different materials are accurately represented from samples from the actual aircraft! The many differences between the Entegra and G1000 versions of the SRs have been integrated, clearly separating the aircraft from each other.
The FMOD sound pack has been the result of hundreds of hours of source audio, carefully recorded from the real aircraft. Recordings of the engine on the ground, and in-flight have provided for a highly-accurate and immersive sound pack replicating the real aircraft. Every switch, knob, lever, and button have been modeled in the sound-pack.
Both the SR22 G3 and SR22TN G3 are simulated. The SR22 is equipped with a normally aspirated Continental IO-550-N capable of 310 HP, while the SR22TN models the Tornado Alley turbo normalizing system attached to the engine. The TorqueSim custom physics model is the most accurate simulation of a piston engine for X-Plane! The simulation models the mass flows of air and fuel through every part of the engine in real time. Air enters the engine through the air filter, flows through ducts, passes obstacles like the throttle plate, burns the fuel and leaves the engine as exhaust gas. Pressures and temperatures are calculated in every section independently, all contributing to the different segments of the simulation. With the Tornado Alley turbo-normalizing system installed, the full performance capability of the engine model comes into play, as compressors, intercoolers, wastegate and turbines also have their places in the calculation of air flows and pressures. All engine parameters are tuned against a huge database of real engine log data to ensure maximum possible accuracy in all phases of flight. The entire engine simulation runs on a separate thread from the main simulator. This allows for the timing necessary for proper simulation, independent of sim frame-rate, but also ensures that the model has a near-zero performance impact on the simulator!

- Absolute pressure controller depending on oil pressure with overboost on cold oil
- Turbocharger sounds depending on their speeds
- Complex component interaction: Manifold pressure controller senses upper deck pressure increase, bypasses exhaust gas flow through the wastegate, decreasing turbine power and slowing down the turbo to reduce compressor output pressure
The SR22 electrical system has also been intricately detailed, ensuring every last breaker and switch is modeled. The dual-batteries are simulated with a custom lead-acid battery simulation. The dual-alternator setup and Master Control Unit have been intricately tuned to interface with the rest of the simulation. All electrical busses and circuit breakers are individually simulated to provide for the most in-depth of simulation. All the intricacies of the SR22 electrical system including alternator drop at low RPM are modeled.
Fuel, Oxygen, and TKS Systems
The SR22 fuel, oxygen, and TKS systems have all been custom simulated, providing for unparalleled accuracy in-flight. The fuel system models all the details down to the fuel lines and injector nozzles! Fuel temperature is calculated and vapor is formed in the lines under the right environmental circumstances. This also allows for the recreation of all engine starting characteristics usually found on an aviation piston engine like normal, cold, hot, flooded and false starts. So be sure to understand the importance of your boost pump both on ground and in flight! The complex behavior of the engine driven and electric fuel pumps as well as the fuel manifold and metering unit are simulated. Changing bank and attitude of the aircraft affect sloshing in the tank, thus causing the indicated fuel quantity to differ. The TKS system models the multiple operational modes through the independent simulation of tanks, pumps, and fluid lines. The oxygen system is no slouch either - the tank, along with a configurable flowmeter are integrated to provide for an excellent platform for high-altitude operations. The simulator‘s hypoxia simulation is modulated to reflect real time of useful consciousness depending on oxygen flow, so make sure to configure the flowmeter properly!

Maintenance and Failure Model
The SR22 also features an engaging and beneficial maintenance, wear, and failure model. This aspect of the simulation makes sure that the plane is flown safely and without damage. Excessive wear will be affecting airframe performance and safety, addressed through a realistic concept of runtime-based and annual inspections. The entire wear and failures logic is built on top of the physics model for engine, airframe, fuel, TKS and oxygen systems. This also includes truly unique features like cylinder detonation driven by the physics engine. TKS fluid panels drain over time in warm conditions and need to be primed, tires flatten, brakes fade when hot, the propeller experiences FOD on unprepared surfaces and much more to discover. Probability distributions tuned with real-world data are used to reflect the increasing likelihood of failures with component runtime.
High-Fidelity Flight Model
The flight model is designed with unparalleled accuracy. The tuning of the aerodynamic profile required hundreds of hours of careful tuning to accurately match the real-world characteristics. The base model was created by X-Aerodynamics, and further built upon to match the aerodynamic quirks of the real aircraft to the limit of the simulator!
- Custom airfoils and highly accurate fuselage shape
- Stall strips and cuffed wing design with unique stalling characteristics
- Accurate control surface areas and deflections for realistic turn rates
Tail Number Livery Customizer
The tail number can be dynamically changed on the aircraft! There are many configuration options to make the plane yours - from changing the tail number color, placement, outlines, drop shadows, all the way to painting it on the wings!
Persistent and Performance Tuned
The countless systems are all designed with persistence in mind - when you shut down the aircraft, you will return to it in the state in which it was left, the engine components will take their real times to cool. This encourages the proper care and handling of the aircraft, and shows the consequences of reckless flying. These systems are also designed to run on computers of many different specs.
All the systems are programmed in C/C++ using the X-Plane SDK. No compromises were made for simplicity. The plugins make significant use of multithreading to have the absolute minimum processes running on the main simulator thread, thus helping keep X-Plane performance at its maximum! The Entegra simulation is also very performance cautious. The avionics engine runs on threads separate from the main simulator and caches data as appropriate. Through our testing, performance exceeds that of the G1000 variants of the same aircraft.
