The model features 4K textures, full PBR (Physically-Based Rendering) and reflections inside the cockpit. Two selectable cockpits have been included for the 150HP model. This includes a IFR rated panel and a standard bare bones VFR panel.

The Real Super Cub
Introduced initially in 1949 by Piper Aircraft, the Super Cub was developed from the Piper PA-11, and traces its lineage back through the J-3 to the Taylor E-2 Cub built during the 1930s. During its 40 years production run, over 9,000 examples have been built.
Since then various kit plane, experimental and certified manufacturers have sold direct copies or slight modifications to the original design. Super Cubs are commonly found in roles such as bush flying, banner, glider towing and for just general fun!
