I'm happy to hand over the 172p to Dave or someone else who is willing
to take it over and give it a lot of TLC -- it's our default aircraft,
so it should look better than it does (i.e. a proper interior with
fabrics, door handles, placards, etc.).

One thing that Blender loses on AC3D export is reused meshes; for
example, I might have 10 objects that all use the same mesh (think
knobs or antennas), and in Blender, any change I make to one will
appear in all the others; on export, the link is lost, and they're 10
separate objects.  As Dave mentioned, specular and emissive colours
are also lost on AC3D export (at least the last time I checked), and I
have to edit them into the *.ac file by hand after export.  Sometimes
I also have to rearrange the objects for alpha ordering.

All the best,
