Cessna 172SP Skyhawk AS1000 improvement

Asobo Skyhwk AS1000 improvement patch with state saving, opening and closing doors and windows, working sunvisors, configurable removable fairings (front and back), optional parking wheel chocks, removable interior seats, checklists systems (cards and flip box) and more to come

О сайте

I'm happy to present you this mod over the ASOBO's Cessna 172SP Skyhawk AS1000

(for the impatients asking about Classic gauge variant, please read until the end of theses notes)

What is it ?

It's an improvement of the default Skyhawk AS1000 from Asobo (one of the default planes). Interior animations have been made from the static model, custom objects have been added.

When installing this mod, it replaces the default Skyhawk AS1000 (no new plane in the hangar).

How do I install it ?

Like all other mods :

  • remove previous version if there is one (in case some files are removed).
  • drop it in your community folder.
  • have a carefull look at the compatibility list
What's in this mod ?

TLDR : Vidéo demo

First of all you have an ingame mod manual :

  • click on the Help message on the panel, on the left to the PFD.

With this mod you will be able to :

  • Open the doors
  • Open the windows
  • Use the sun visors
    • You have 4 axes for the visors : 3 rotations and 1 slide

You will get customizations directly from the cockpit :

  • A handbook on pilot's left compartment storage
    • Accessible when you look down : "checklist01" camera : CTRL+6
    • Click on the book, you will get a page with clicable options (light is required in the cockpit)
    • You can show/hide the front and/or back wheel fairings
    • You can park your plane with optional wheel chocks and tie downs (currently visual, no effect on mouvement yet)
    • Set/remove external covers
    • You can show/hide pilot and copilot in inside views. It does not affect external views
    • Set pilote or copilote weight to zero if you want them to be hidden in external views
    • You can show/hide left and right passengers in interior and exterior views.
    • Set their weight to non zero to make them appear.
    • You can show/hide the front right seat and the back seats
    • You can have all the switches, levers, fuel tank levels, visors, doors and windows remembered
    • It's an option, if chosen, state loading will occur at parking spot only. It will be partial in any other case.
    • If you don't want it, plane will start as it usually does
  • Several static objects decorating the interior (bottles, bags, maps...)

You also have two new checklists tools :

  • A checklist card
    • take it on the top of the panel, it will stay visible in the corner of your eye during the different phases of the flight
    • no checkmarks, no hint, no automatic help : they're made to be read
    • you can show/hide it from the options handbook
  • A flip checklist box
    • to follow easily steps of your takeoff and landing phases and remember what you've done
    • you can show/hide it from the options handbook
What's planned for the future ?
  • Cargo & pax setups
  • In plane maps
  • In plane external apps (LNM, Neofly...)
  • And more !
  • WT G1000NXI mod is selected by default.
  • This mod has been tested with the current version of MGouge425's Asobo C172SP AS1000 Realism Mod and they appear to be fully compatible, so they can both be installed without any apparent interference.
  • Existing Cessna Skyhawk AS1000 LIVERIES are compatible
    • as long as the models are not overwritten in the livery itself. In this case, original interior/exterior will be used
    • As long as the panel.cfg/xml are not overwritten (see FAQ if you have blank screens on checklist/book)
  • My other C172 mods are not modified by this mod, but they still work :
  • B78XH mod is reported to be cause side effects (it's true with other planes too)
  • PMS GTN750 mods are not compatible (until they're updated to use "override_base_container ")
  • WBSims classic mod is not related to this plane (it's for classic variant) : no incompatibility
AS1000 variant ? Classic Gauges variant ?

This mod is made from Asobo's Skyhawk AS1000 thanks to Games content usage rules : 3D model has been imported in Blender, modified and exported as this mod.

There will be no classic gauges mod based on Asobo's Skyhawk model as it is :

  • encrypted (after SU10, only cfg files are available)
  • part of MSFS Premium (not redistributable as is)

A full build of the cockpit from scratch would be necessary for a gauges variant. I may work on that in the future, but it's not planned yet...


Thanks to Cessna2807, Ann0v, Pops738, xvx45 for the tests and debugs, fixes...

SU11 Compatibility status : Seems to be OK with 1.3.0


I recommend MGouge425's Asobo C172SP AS1000 Realism Mod as a complementary mod for a model closer to POH :



Warning : passengers usually have zero weight by default when starting flight : raise it if you want to make them appear.


As a frequent question, I will not be working on C172 classic (gauges)

XML files and 3D models are still encrypted after SU10, (only .cfg files have been) and anyway it would not be possible to deliver the plane freely nor to limit to MSFS premium users.


Happy skyhawking !

Great mod! With the enhancement mod and GTN750 mod it's now my go-to 172. I don't mean to be greedy but is it just the one set of rear passenger models available? I think it's the C414 or 310 you can change some parameters and get different passengers. Just checking. 😊

I've just discovered a small error. Somehow the vents or the texture on the inner wing front are not displayed correctly. You can see something, but it looks rather shadowy. The textures are from the "C172SP_AIRFRAME_LIVERY_ALBD.PNG". You can't see them in your photos here either. It's just a small thing, but maybe you can fix it in an upcoming update.

Otherwise, as already mentioned, a great mod.

hello, the problem I have is that the throttle goes from full back to idle....and even if i aplly full throttle on my joystick this happens continously that the throttle goes full and idle and back to full....I only have this issue with this aicraft/mod



2 day(s) ago / Поблагодарили bagolu

While most of the options work (pilot/copilot visibility, fairings etc) the passenger visibility options have no effect and the rear seat remains empty.

The same here. Hand book options not working.

Sun visor not working. Hand book options not working



6 day(s) ago / Поблагодарили bagolu

Hi Bagolu, I tried click on option check marks on the manual pop-up. It does not change the options, Could you help on this? Thank you. I have not tried yet It looks like a great mod.




10 day(s) ago / Поблагодарили bagolu

How to use liveries that have custom color/font on the registration? I think it modifies the panel.cfg and has to be deleted to make it work with this mod, and if that is done the custom registration is not there. Help is appreciated.



12 day(s) ago / Поблагодарили bagolu

Thank you for a great mod, I love it! There seems to be a weird specific conflict between it and OnAir since SU11 - is that something you're interested in knowing more about?



16 day(s) ago / Поблагодарили bagolu

Perfect for a bit more RP and realism!

Works with the default livery though, can I change the files in the TEXTURE to have my own livery? Or will it remove your options?



21 day(s) ago / Поблагодарили bagolu

Good work! Do you plan on merging the SU11 changes to the 172 flight model?

I have the WB–Sim – 172SP Classic Enhancement mod for the skyhawk, that conflicts with this mod??. Because i can't select the options in the handbook too

Havn't tried yet the new version, but didn't use the previous one anymore as I didn't like to be moved out of the plane when I just wanted to slide on my seat a bit to the outer side in order to get a better view downwards. Normally the size of the cockpit limits such movements in all other planes - including the default C172,

However, your efforts are really great. Probably you can find out the reason for this glitch.



30 day(s) ago / Поблагодарили bagolu

Thx for the great mod but suddenly I have a repaint where the G1000 screens remains black even power is on and also the book is only with white pages and another repaint where the G1000 is working but the book is again with white pages...

You legend! top top top freeware, this mod is an absolute game changer. Can't begin to imagine how long it has taken to animate everything. Hopefully we can hope for more of this on some of the base aircraft

  • Version 1.4.0 November 24, 2022

    New features :
    - ingame manual : click on the Help sticker on the left of the PFD
    - passengers :
    - check the options in the book
    - set weight > 0 in the MSFS "weight and balance" page

    Fixes :
    - reload of saved stated delayed a little (I found a race conditions)
    - panel sticker UVmap fix

    Happy flying with the new passengers and don't worry if they do not smile a lot, I'm sure they really appreciate the flight !

  • Version 1.3.0 October 25, 2022

    # Fixes :
    - chocks & tie downs are automaticaly removed when we start in the air
    - cleaned up 3D model (useless parts)
    - checklist corrected (speed units)

    # New features :
    - Internal stickers : One single image to decorate the panel easily
    - STATE SAVING is a new option available in the book. It records :
    - fuel tank levels
    - levers positions
    - switches
    - sun visors positions
    - doors and windows
    but does not record (yet) :
    - the group of 4 internal lights (they'll require animation recoding)
    - magnetos key (by choice)

    Thank again for all your reports from the previous versions.
    I hope you'll enjoy that one
    See you in the sky, hawks !

  • Version 1.2.0 September 28, 2022

    Fix :
    - now this mod uses Working Titles G1000 panels by default.
    Thanks to Nautiker777 for the report
    If for a specific reason you want to use default old G1000 system,
    you'll have to replace lines with WT1000 references in panel.cfg with :
    htmlgauge00=NavSystems/AS1000/PFD/AS1000_PFD.html, 0, 0, 1024, 768

    Thanks a lot for all your messages and thanks for your replies to the poll for the next features.
    The primary choice is STATE SAVING in plane. I'll be working on that feature. The objective is to :
    - save buttons and levers positions
    - save fuel quantity
    - save mod options (chocks, checklists... that's almost already done)
    - stay compatible with startup options from MSFS : I need to see what to do when one wants to start from the runway or inflight (you probably don't want to spawn there with everything turned off, but I've seen payware planes doing that with state saving...)

  • Version 1.1.0 September 18, 2022

    Thanks to all the kind words for the 1st release of this mod !

    I've tried to handled the most urgent problems :

    This new release fixes :
    - external lights (landing + taxi) are now visible on the model
    - windshields are cleaner : I've removed (for now) the annoying textures with prints & stains
    (we'll see later with the dirt & aging layers)
    - objects in cockpits (bottles...) have been enlarged to match better real sizes
    (they are only the begining of custom interior decoration)

    This release also adds a few simple new features :
    - you can now hide the checklist card, if you don't want it at all
    - you can show or hide the various objects in cockpit
    - new external static objects :
    - tie downs
    - pitot covers
    - cowl plugs
    not perfectly static, you'll see...

    If you want to choose the next incoming feature, please see the poll :

    Happy skyhawking !

How about the C172 Classic with gauges

There will be no classic gauges mod based on Asobo's Skyhawk model as it is encrypted and is part of MSFS Premium (not redistributable as is)
A rebuild of the cockpit would be necessary for a gauges variant. I may work on that in the future, but it's not planned yet...

Blank screens (checklists, book...)

The code for checklists, book, etc is in panel\panel.cfg and panel\panel.xml.

To correct your livery :

  • if you have a panel\panel.xml file : remove it from the livery folders
  • if you have a panel\panel.cfg file : it's only usefull if it changes the registration color.
    • If it's white : remove the file from the livery folders (it's useless)
    • If it's another color, your file will have to look like this :

override_base_container = 0

size_mm = 1024,256
texture = $RegistrationNumber
location = exterior painting00=Registration/Registration.html?font_color=white, 0, 0, 1024, 200

Can't click on the options

It's usually a mod conflict.

See the list on the main page, try the mod alone, report !

Can't see the passengers

You have to do two things to see them :

  • Enable them in the handbook
  • Give them weight in the "Fuel & balance" MSFS options
