Cessna 172 Skyhawk Amphibian

A powerfull member of the short take-off and landing capable Skyhawk family built on a Lycoming 210HP STC : 

This is a plane patch over Asobo's Skyhawk and adds a new plane to your hangar (located at the begining : letter C... like Cessna)
This mod respects the Game Content Usage Rules from Microsoft.

Cockpit settings :

You will find two variants to download :

  • baglu-c172-amphib-g1000.zip : to be used with any version of MSFS2020
  • baglu-c172-amphib-classic.zip : only if you have the Classic 172 from premium version
    Note with the classic model : some features may not work (the xml files from the original plane are encrypted).
    Current known issues :
    fuel selector locked on left side (if you have the bug on the Asobo classic 172 you will have it here too)

3D model modifications of the original Asobo Skyhawk plane included :

  • Wipline 2350 floats, with external wires, retractable landing gear.
  • Sportsman STOL Camber Cuffs on the wings.
  • Increased flaps angle.
  • paddle, ropes !

Flight model modifications included :

  • more power from a STC 210HP 4 cylinders engine
  • 4 position flaps (0°, 10°, 20° and down to 40°)

Sea landing : 

Be gentle when landing on sea (as much as on ground), try not to bounce or you may crash.
Check the gear indicator in the cockpit (G1000 version only) and on the float through the window : gear have to be retracted for sea landing.
Cockpit is now the one from Asobo C172 with floats : so you will find gear lever, and water rudder lever, but only for G1000 version. On classic version, use shortcuts/buttons for gears and water rudder (ctrl+w is the default for water rudders)

Ground landing : 

Water rudders have to be retracted
Steering on ground should be operated with differential breaking (breaking left or right), but I have not disabled rudder control, so you can still use it.

Liveries included :

Several liveries are included with this plane :
Default livery, blue & gray, I-GNHR, I-GRDX thanks to ANN0V
Wendy thanks to 270INC
Red livery and green livery inspired from real seaplane C172 liveries

Notes to livery makers :

  • Registration numbers are split in two in panel.cfg : you will be able to set different colors for the wing and the side reg.
  • Common parts of the plane have the exact same name as the C172 AS1000 model
  • New parts have their textures in AMPHIB172-FLOATS* files
  • Stickers are baked in the model, if you want to replace with yours, edit the file : BUSH172_STICKERS_ALBD.PNG You can also remove the stickers with a transparent texture file.
  • The front of the wings are the sportsman camber cuff, defined in BUSH172_SPORTSMAN_* files.

EzRyder has made a very nice ALLInOne C172 Template. Don't miss that paint kit.

Also, don't miss the blender multi template pack from AIRPAC1

Flight model :

Flight model is based on reaperS73 work on the C172 STC 210HP STOL G1000 and allows to operate in a STOL mode in bush locations.

Where to sealand :

Well obviously, anywhere ! 
You will find a lot of very nice customized places with seaports, pontoons, marinas on flightsim.to
If you have no idea where to start, look at the nice seaports in Alaska made by Photosbykev and sjfly2.

Norway fjords are also a very nice place to fly : See thes multi-parts charter pilot adventures from Koschi :
Norway's fjords part 1,part 2,part 3, part 4, part 5, part 6

About this work :

3D model has been made with blender from the export of Skyhawk G1000 Asobo's original model.
All the external textures and animations had to be redone and match the original definitions.
Floats have been modeled from real Wipline (c) models
A huge thanks to Newktv's developpement series that helped a LOT.
Many thanks to EzRyder who figured it out how to use the classic cockpit MikeFear303 for the classic cockpit xml & systems trick !
Special thanks to 270INC with the Wendy livery.

Works perfectly, looks great

and is a great upgrade for the plane.

It is compatible with SU11,

thanks for that

Merci beaucoup pour ce travail.

I think IRL those nose wheels are freely turning, so ground handling for low speed is only possible through differential braking (you also stated that in the description). Can I disable the nose wheel steering by myself without losing the rudder binding? Because for higher speeds the rudder is still needed 😉

Hi, just wondering if the current C172 amphibian mod works in SU10 rc

Greetings I have noticed that the Transponder does not turn on in the Classic version (did not check the G1000) is this also one of the known issues or can it be fixed?

Great, Tx!

With WU8 it makes the Content Manager crash ...


I really like all of your mods of the 172. Could you maybe someday make a version of this with the stock landing-gear, but still with the three-bladed prop and all the other STOL stuff. I know that this would be kinda useless in the real world, but I really don't like those huge bush tires on the other mod and would prefer it like that.


I still enjoy this beauty and the level of detail and work you put into it!

I take the chance to report an issue with icing as I flew to slight ice today:


As you may see that is not really slight 😉 I guess you have to tweak vertex colors on the ice model for it to appear correctly.

Other than that the model is really nice! Full 5* 😊

I noticed the differential braking (with gear down on the ground) is reversed: braking left turns the aircraft right and vice versa.

I could fix it by editing these lines in the flight_model.cfg (the "-" in the third parameter was in the wrong lines):

point.9 = 1, 6.108693, -3.909097, -5.9, 750, 0, 0.3, 45, 0.296, 2.5, 0.795, 4, 3.8, 0, 165, 165, 1

point.10 = 1, 6.108682, 3.90903 3.90, -5.9, 750, 0, 0.3, 45, 0.296, 2.5, 0.795, 4, 3.8, 0, 165, 165, 1

point.11 = 1, -5.286817, -3.909039, -6.1, 1500, 1, 0.3, 0, 0.296, 2.5, 0.795, 4, 3.8, 0, 165, 165, 1

point.12 = 1, -5.286814, 3.909068, -6.1, 1500, 2, 0.3, 0, 0.296, 2.5, 0.795, 4, 3.8, 0, 165, 165, 1

If you have an early livery for the plane and have pink checker side prop, add theses lines in your texture.cfg file for clean liveries :


or for diry liveries :


For classic variant, this would be for clean :


and for dirty :


Of course, you will have to renumber the following lines (fallback.3, 4...)

Thanks for the update and just want to say again how great this and your other work is. Probably still my favorite plane I'm used so far!



1 year(s) ago / Thanked by bagolu

Thank you for this wonderful modification. It takes the awesome C172 floatplane and makes it even better. One of my very favorites in my hangar!



1 year(s) ago / Thanked by bagolu

I just downloaded this excellent floatplane again and replaced the one I had installed and the wake effect is there so it seems there must have been an update. Great aircraft.



1 year(s) ago / Thanked by bagolu

I just finished a Neofly mission using your mod and i must say very nice job sir. Well done.

Thank you



1 year(s) ago / Thanked by bagolu

It seems that since SU7 update (MSFS) the wake effect does not work anymore. The wake effect still works for the MSFS floatplanes. Other than that a great amphibian.



1 year(s) ago / Thanked by bagolu

Best floatplane in MSFS 2020 among all those I've tried, thanks!

Here is the link to Italy VFR float tour (Ivao): come and enjoy, it's nice! https://tours.at.ivao.aero/index.php?div=IT&tourid=421

Love this mod, thanks a lot!

Only problem is that the water rudder seems to effective for me, i don't have IRL experience but I think that because of full rudder the plane should not roll over.

These items are currently on the list and will be processed soon!
Suggestion, bugs and ideas for the future.

  • Version 1.5.0 September 29, 2022

    - use new WT1000 NXI system (SU10 update required)

  • Version 1.4.2 February 21, 2022

    - differential braking, thanks to RALF9636

    two new liveries given by Ann0v :
    - I-GNHR livery
    - I-GDRX livery

  • Version 1.4.1 January 24, 2022

    Fixed the discharging battery problem
    Installed a new three blade propeller

    Happy bushin' !

  • Version 1.4.0 August 20, 2021

    New features :
    - Use of Asobo's C172 interiors models in both G1000 and classic models :
    - Landing gear lever and indicator
    - water rudder lever

    Fixes :
    - Fixed the blank transponder in classic model
    - Use of the Asobo's flight model on water

    I have not started the flight model tuning update yet. I'll do it as soon as I can !

    Asobo has not replied to my access request to the missing (encrypted) files. I hope they'll do.

    Known bugs :
    - if the classic 172 Textron has the fuel valve locked on the left tank, you will have the same problem in this plane with the classic version.

    I hope you'll enjoy this new version, happy flying !

  • Version 1.3.0 August 10, 2021

    Bug fixes and new features :
    - water sounds on water
    - new landing effects (dirt, snow, grass, water...) thanks to Carbonprop
    - Flight dynamics landing on water is now less clunky
    - wendy texture rework thanks to AIRPAC1
    - prop side bug with taxi lights corrected thanks to PopS738
    - pilots and interior do not disappear out of the plane anymore

    There is still work to do on this model, especialy with the flight model that is still overpowered.

    I have asked Asobo the access to the missing (encrypted) files of the classic version in order to have a fully working cockpit. I hope they'll grant it to modders

  • Version 1.2.1 June 29, 2021

    Minor update
    - fixed the sportsman texture
    - fixed a livery glitch under the wings
