Carenado’s 172 Now Floats Too


We mentioned it before already, Carenado is chopping up its packages and selling all bits and pieces separately. So now you have to choose whether you buy a Cessna 172 on wheels, or on skis, or on floats….. or get them all and  pay almost 49 Euros for the complete set. The sales will indicate whether or not this policy makes sense. You can now buy the 172 Floats Version on simMarket, just click here!

it only makes sense if they also include a package deal, like, say €35 for all three. Francois was right all along 🙂

It seems like a pretty decent compromise to me. They get a little more cash for their efforts, and the users get a nice single-purpose plane for a good price. The only ones who suffer much — if you could call it that — are users who want all the variants. I like this ala carte approach, actually.

So you can only get the one you want and not get the ones you don’t, which means you don’t have to spend €48, but rather €27, €11 or €12. Or you can get each one as money permits, again without having to spend the entire outlay at once.

I can see what they are trying to achieve. I’m not sure it’ll work, but I can see the theory behind it. Time and sales figures will tell, I guess!

I don’t think any aircraft Carenado has ever released is worth anywhere near 49 Euros, that’s $66 for Gods sake, are they crazy the world is in recession.

And worth every penny

I’m sure Carenado will come up with a package deal eventually as they did for the C206.

I’m not sure why the float costs a buck more than the skis though!
