Featured Addon History

Westland Future Lynx

This month we feature Westland Future Lynx by AlphaSim. This package includes 6 models, 3 Lynx Army variants and 3 Lynx Navy. Modifications from the original include: added/revised cockpit, VC panel and external views; reduced gps pop up window; reworked .air file; reference and checklist updates; texture modifications; and VC tweaks.  

The Westland Lynx is a British multi-purpose military helicopter designed and built by Westland Helicopters at its factory in Yeovil. Originally intended as a utility craft for both civil and naval usage, military interest led to the development of both battlefield and naval variants. The Lynx went into operational usage in 1977 and was later adopted by the armed forces of over a dozen nations, primarily serving in the battlefield utility, anti-armour, search and rescue and anti-submarine warfare roles. The Lynx was the world's first fully aerobatic helicopter. In 1986 a specially modified Lynx set the current Fédération Aéronautique Internationale's official airspeed record for helicopters.

Pond Racer

This month we feature Pond Racer by Blake Melancon and Travis Fitzpatrick. From the documentation "The Pond Racer has been a favorite of mine since it graced the cover of Popular Mechanics in the early 1990’s while I was a teenager. I’ve always had a fascination with the aircraft, from its graceful lines to its distinctive engine sounds. I hope you enjoy this model as much as I’ve enjoyed building her. The Pond is my first aircraft design for Flight Simulator, even with its modeling shortcomings; I think you’ll enjoy her also. She was built over the course of several months while I was stationed in Iraq with the US Army."

Bob Pond commissioned the design with the idea of developing a modern aircraft that could compete with the vintage warbirds in the Unlimited Class at the Reno air races. Bob Pond was concerned that each year at the Reno Air Races, valuable and historic aircraft were being crashed and destroyed, not to mention many engines being damaged or wrecked beyond repair. The Pond Racer was hoped to be an alternative to vintage aircraft like the P-51 Mustang and the Hawker Sea Fury that would be as fast and spectacular in the air as the warbirds. (Source: Wikipedia)

A380-800 British Airways G-CVIX

This month we feature Vincent Aviation Beechcraft B1900D by Demetris Themistocleous, Derek Mayer, Sheldon Fernandes, Tom Collins, and Alexis Vletsas. This Airbus A380-800 includes dynamic wingflex (with input from several new variables), accurate LAF simulation, parallel bogies, drooping control surfaces, hardcoded double strobes, and over 40 other custom xml parts.

The Airbus A380 is a double-deck, wide-body, four-engine jet airliner manufactured by the European corporation Airbus, a subsidiary of EADS. It is the largest passenger airliner in the world. Due to its size, many airports had to modify and improve facilities to accommodate it. Designed to challenge Boeing's monopoly in the large-aircraft market, the A380 made its maiden flight on 27 April 2005 and entered commercial service in October 2007 with Singapore Airlines. The aircraft was known as the Airbus A3XX during much of its development, before receiving the A380 designation. The nickname Superjumbo has since become associated with it.

The A380's upper deck extends along the entire length of the fuselage, and its width is equivalent to that of a widebody aircraft. This allows for an A380-800's cabin with 478 square metres (5,145.1 sq ft) of floor space; 49% more floor space than the current next-largest airliner, the Boeing 747-400 with 321 square metres (3,455.2 sq ft), and provides seating for 525 people in a typical three-class configuration or up to 853 people in all-economy class configurations. The A380-800 has a design range of 15,200 km (8,200 nmi; 9,400 mi), sufficient to fly from New York to Hong Kong for example, and a cruising speed of Mach 0.85 (about 900 km/h or 560 mph at cruising altitude).

Vincent Aviation Beechcraft B1900D

This month we feature Vincent Aviation Beechcraft B1900D by Barry Blaisdell, Jean-Pierre Brisard, Bob May, Kevin Pardy, and Danny 'Chief' Crance. The B1900D is a 19 seat Regional Airliner. Full animation, dynamic shine & reflective textures are included along with a 2D panel and VC. Also: a complete passenger cabin, opening passenger door with airstair, cargo doors and custom sound.

The Beechcraft 1900 was developed directly from the Beechcraft Super King Air 200. The 1900 first flew on September 3, 1982, with Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) certification awarded in November 1983 under Special Federal Aviation Regulation (SFAR) 41C airworthiness standards. Like the 1900, the 1900C was certified under SFAR 41C, but the later 1900D version was certified to FAR Part 23 "Commuter Category" standards.

The 1900 entered service in February 1984, with the first ExecLiner corporate version delivered in 1985. A total of 695 Beechcraft 1900 aircraft were built, making the Airliner the best-selling 19-passenger airliner in history. With market trends favoring larger 50- to 90-seat regional jets, Raytheon ended production of the Beechcraft 1900 in October 2002. Many airlines continue to fly the 1900. (Source: documentation)

L-40 Meta Sokol

This month we feature L-40 Meta Sokol by Jozef Vrabec and Jozef Kosik. This aircraft package includes 3 paint schemes, a 3D virtual cockpit and was designed in GMAX featuring over 50,000 polygons. The L-40 is fully animated with a clickable cockpit. Textures are a combination of real-life photography with paint textures for a stunning look.

The L-40 Meta Sokol was a Czechoslovakian sports and touring four-seat single-engine low-wing aircraft of the late 1950s.

he prototype of the L-40, the XL-40, flew first on 29 March 1956. Another prototype flew in August 1956, introducing some simplification of construction. In 1957 the aircraft entered production, and by 1959, 106 were built. The first series of 10 aircraft had 77 kW (103 hp) Walter Minor III-4 engine, with the remainder powered by more powerful (103 kW (138 hp)) Walter M-332 engines. Four persons sat in two rows, with dual controls. An unusual feature is the inverted tricycle gear, with main gear near the wing's leading edge and relatively big rear wheel near the wing's rear edge, which resulted in the fuselage being almost horizontal on the ground.

Royal Aircraft Factory SE.5a

This month we feature Royal Aircraft Factory SE.5a by AlphaSim Ltd. Features multiple window views, 4 paint schemes, 3D virtual cockpit, custom gauges, pilot toggle, checklist and procedures.

The Royal Aircraft Factory's S.E.5.a went tooth and nail with the Sopwith Camel for the accolade of being the finest British fighting aeroplane of World War I. Designed by a team which included the legendary H. P. Folland, the first prototype was unveiled in December, 1916.

The S.E.5.a was widely regarded as a tough opponent by the enemy and as a good friend in the air by its pilots. It was robust, fast, and very easy to fly. It was superior to the Albatross D-III and D-V, the Pfalz D-III and the Fokker Dr. I; not even the vaunted Fokker D-VII could dethrone it. The aircraft remains extremely popular among early aviation history buffs and WWI aficionados, and replicas abound, in both full- and smaller-scale versions. Excellent flying reproductions of the plane can be seen in the films "The Aviator" and "Flyboys", but the best place to see the S.E.5.a in action is in the restored version of Howard Hughes' "Hell's Angels".

After successful operations of the An-24T tactical transport in austere locations, interest in a version with a retractable cargo ramp increased. Initial studies for the retractable ramp were carried out as part of the projected An-40 medium transport. When given the go-ahead for the An-26 in March 1968 the Antonov OKB adapted the ramp design of the An-40 to the An-24 fuselage, thus was born the An-26. Particular attention was given to the military mission. (Source: Wikipedia.)

Lockheed L-749 Constellation

This month we feature Lockheed L-749 Constellation by Diego S. Barreto, Manfred Jahn, Hansjoerg Naegele, Luis Pallas, Bill Tyne, Roland Berger, Volker Boehme, Stefan Werner, Jaap der Baare and Hans Herrmann. This package includes 7 models and 5 paint schemes and complete documentation.

The Lockheed Constellation ("Connie") was a propeller-driven airliner powered by four 18-cylinder radial Wright R-3350 engines. It was built by Lockheed between 1943 and 1958 at its Burbank, California, USA, facility. A total of 856 aircraft were produced in four models, all distinguished by a triple-tail design and dolphin-shaped fuselage. The Constellation was used as a civilian airliner and as a U.S. military air transport plane, seeing service in the Berlin Airlift. It was the presidential aircraft for U.S. President Dwight D. Eisenhower.

The advent of jet airliners, with the de Havilland Comet, Boeing 707, Douglas DC-8 and Convair 880, rendered the piston-engined Constellation obsolete. The first routes lost to jets were the long overseas routes, but Constellations continued to fly domestic routes. The last scheduled passenger flight of a four-engined piston-engined airliner in the United States was made by a TWA L749 on May 11, 1967 from Philadelphia to Kansas City, MO.[11] However, Constellations remained in freight service for years to come, and were the mainstay of Eastern Airlines' shuttle service between New York, Washington, and Boston until 1968.  (Source: Wikipedia.)

Morane Saulnier MS.760 Paris Jet

This month we feature Morane Saulnier MS.760 Paris Jet by Tim Piglet Conrad. This model features 3 paint schemes including the silver-metallic stock look, camouflage and tan. This is a refined aircraft with very detailed texture work and rich virtual cockpit display sporting multiple views and custom gauges. The water rudder command moves the sunvisors up/down. This aircraft was built using the FSX SP-2 SDK.

The Morane-Saulnier MS-760 Paris is a French jet trainer and liaison aircraft built by Morane-Saulnier. Based on the earlier two-seat trainer, the MS-755 Fleuret, the Paris was used by the French military between 1959 and 1997. In the early 1950s the French Air Force needed an ab-initio jet trainer; Morane-Saulnier proposed the MS-755 Fleuret, but the competition was won by the Fouga Magister. The company re-designed the MS-755 as a four-seat liaison aircraft which they called the MS-760 Paris.

On 18 July 1956 the French government requisitioned 50 aircraft, including 14 for the Navy, from Tarbes-based manufacturer Morane-Saulnier. ... Their missions were Super Étendard and F-8 Crusader pilot IFR and all-weather training, advanced training for new pilots, proficiency training for other pilots and A.L.P.A. (admirals commanding the carriers and Naval Aviation), and 1st and 2nd Aerial Regions liaisons. Eight MS-760 Paris were on the unit's flightline.

After 40 years of service, the aircraft were retired in October 1997 at N.A.S. Landivisiau. ... In 2007, after 48 years of continuous service, the Argentine Air Force retired their last Paris. (Source: Wikipedia.)

Beechcraft T-34 Mentor Turbo

This month we feature Beechcraft T-34 Mentor Turbo by Alphasim Freeware, Mark Rooks, and Danny Garnier. This model features updated flight dynamics and 2D/3D Panel, and textures by Mark Rooks of RDG Aircraft.

The Beechcraft T-34 Mentor is a propeller-driven, single-engined, military trainer aircraft derived from the Beechcraft Model 35 Bonanza. The earlier versions of the T-34, dating from around the late 1940s to the 1950s, were piston-engined. These were eventually succeeded by the upgraded T-34C Turbo-Mentor, powered by a turboprop engine. The T-34 remains in service almost six decades after it was first designed.

After a production hiatus of almost 15 years, the T-34C Turbo-Mentor powered by a Pratt & Whitney Canada PT6A-25 turboprop engine was developed in 1973. ... Mentor production re-started in 1975 for deliveries of T-34Cs to the USN and of the T-34C-1 armed version for export customers in 1977, this version featuring four underwing hardpoints. The last Turbo-Mentor rolled off the production line in 1990. (Source: Wikipedia.)

De Havilland DH-80A Puss Moth

This month we feature De Havilland DH-80A Puss Moth by Milton Shupe, Scott Thomas, Damian Radice, Tom Falley Mike Hambly, Mike Wilkinson, and Bill Brady. This model features a beautiful custom era correct panel with easy-to-read virtual cockpit. Package includes a great flight model and four gorgeous paint schemes (black, silver, blue and red.

Most DH.80As were used as private aircraft, though many also flew commercially with small air charter firms for both passenger and mail carrying. Seating was normally two although in commercial use two passengers could be carried in slightly staggered seats allowing the rear passenger's legs to lie beside the forward passenger seat. The wings folded backwards for storage, pivoting on the rear spar root fitting and the V-strut root fitting, a system used on other De Havilland light airplanes of the period.

DH.80s were used for a number of record breaking flights during the early 1930s. Surviving British civilian aircraft were impressed into service during World War II to act as communication aircraft. A small number survive into the early 21st century. (Source: Wikipedia.)

FSX North American F-86E Sabre

This month we feature FSX North American F-86E Sabre by Wesam Baker, Jan Visser, Hansjoerg Naegele, Robert Young, Cliff Presley, Jan Rosenberg, Dudley Henriques, Björn Kesten, and Nils. This is an update that adds external views to the previously released v1.1a. This addon includes a detailed clickable cockpit, 2 paint schemes, full textures and excellent documentation.

The Sabre is best known for its Korean War role where it was pitted against the Soviet MiG-15 and obtained UN air superiority. Although developed in the late 1940s and outdated by the end of the 1950s, the Sabre proved adaptable and continued as a front line fighter in air forces until the last active front line examples were retired by the Bolivian Air Force in 1994.

Its success led to an extended production run of more than 7,800 aircraft between 1949 and 1956,[citation needed] in the United States, Japan and Italy. It was by far the most-produced Western jet fighter, with total production of all variants at 9,860 units.

F-86E: Improved flight control system and an "all-flying tail" (This system changed to a full power-operated control with an "artificial feel" built into the aircraft's controls to give the pilot forces on the stick that were still conventional, but light enough for superior combat control. It improved high speed maneuverability); 456 built, North American model NA-170 (F-86E-1 and E-5 blocks), NA-172, essentially the F-86F airframe with the F-86E engine (F-86E-10 and E-15 blocks); 60 of these built by Canadair for USAF (F-86E-6) (Source: Wikipedia.)

The Grumman F-14 Tomcat is a supersonic, twin-engine, two-seat, variable-sweep wing aircraft. The F-14 was the United States Navy's primary maritime air superiority fighter, fleet defense interceptor and tactical reconnaissance platform from 1974 to 2006. The F-14 first deployed in 1974 with the U.S. Navy aboard USS Enterprise, replacing the F-4 Phantom II and was retired from the active U.S. Navy fleet on 22 September 2006, having been replaced by the F/A-18E/F Super Hornet.

The final variant of the F-14 was the F-14D Super Tomcat. The F-14D variant was first delivered in 1991. The original TF-30 engines were replaced with GE F110-400 engines, similar to the F-14B. The F-14D also included newer digital avionics systems including a Glass cockpit and replaced the AWG-9 with the newer AN/APG-71 radar. (Source: Wikipedia.)

Boeing/BAE T-45C Goshawk

This month we feature Boeing/BAE T-45C Goshawk by Dino Cattaneo. This excellent package includes 7 paint schemes of the T-45C. Extreme attention to detail and realism contribute to an amazing overall product. This is a new visual model complete with self shadowing, bump mapping and photo-real hi-res textures. The virtual dynamic cockpit is workable and features 3D gauges. The flight model is reasonably accurate and realistic. Checklists, specifications and complete documentation are included.

The T-45 Goshawk is a fully carrier-capable version of the Hawk Mk.60. It was developed for the United States Navy (USN) for use in training. BAE Systems manufactures the fuselage aft of the cockpit, the air inlets, the vertical stabilizer of the T-45 at Samlesbury, and the wings at Brough, England. Boeing manufactures the remainder of the aircraft and assembles them in St. Louis, Missouri.

The T-45 has been used for intermediate and advanced portions of the Navy/Marine Corps strike pilot training program with Training Air Wing ONE at Naval Air Station Meridian, Mississippi and Training Air Wing TWO at Naval Air Station Kingsville, Texas. The T-45's A and C models are currently in operational use. The T-45A, which became operational in 1991, contains an analog cockpit design while the newer T-45C, which was first delivered in December 1997, features a new digital "glass cockpit" design. All T-45A aircraft will eventually be converted to a T-45C configuration under the T-45 Required Avionics Modernization Program (T-45 RAMP).. (Source: Wikipedia.)

Cessna Citation X

This month we feature Cessna Citation X by Rajiv DeYoung, Daisuke Yamamoto, Garry J. Smith, and Toshikazu Shimizu. Includes high resolution textures, fully functional VC, realistic flight-dynamics and operations. A completely modeled interior allows for in-flight cabin roaming with a "passenger seat" camera definition. This is a very unique aircraft, with a flight-dynamic envelope nearly impossible to model within FSX's limitations.

The Cessna Citation X is a long range medium business jet aircraft. The X is the fastest operative civilian jet with a top speed of Mach 0.92 (700 mph, 1131 km/h at 41,000ft ASL (12,700meters ASL). This also makes it the fastest business jet in history. Although based on the earlier Citation III, VI and VII models the Citation X is a significantly different airplane. It utilizes a totally new wing design, engines, and features a glass cockpit.

The first Citation X was delivered in June 1996 to golfer and long-time Cessna customer Arnold Palmer. Once in use, the Citation X continued to set speed records. Arnold Palmer set one of them in September 1997: 473 knots (876 km/h) on a 5,000 km closed course.

The aircraft incorporates a number of innovative design features. One attribute that is often first noticed is the large diameter of the engine intakes. This feature, related to the high bypass ratio turbofan, reduces the noise from the engines and improves fuel efficiency. Another obvious characteristic is the highly swept wing with a supercritical airfoil, used in order to increase the critical Mach number and therefore the top speed. The Citation X has 37 degrees of sweepback at the quarter chord, more than any other business jet. (Source: Wikipedia.)

F/A-18 Super Hornet RAAF 20th Birthday

This month we feature Super Hornet RAAF 20th Birthday by Rajiv DeYoung, Daisuke Yamamoto, Garry J. Smith, and Toshikazu Shimizu. This package contains 3 paint schemes and a total of 39 variations of the Super Hornet. This is a representation of the real-life F/A-18 E Super Hornet that flew to the Atsugi Airbase. A full assortment of animated parts is featured including launch bar, air refueling probe and tail hook. The virtual cockpit is intended to be as real as possible and many items are clickable: landing gear lever, folding wings lever, tail hook control, navigation lights, strobe, beacon and panel lights. The Super Hornet's STOL feature, maneuverability, agility and stability are modeled in the flight dynamics.

The Boeing F/A-18E/F Super Hornet is a 4.5+ generation[3] carrier-based Multirole fighter aircraft. The F/A-18E single-seat variant and F/A-18F tandem-seat variant are larger and more advanced derivatives of the F/A-18C and D Hornet. The Super Hornet has an internal 20 mm gun and can carry air-to-air missiles and air-to-surface weapons. Additional fuel can be carried with up to five external fuel tanks and the aircraft can be configured as an airborne tanker by adding an external air refueling system.

The Super Hornet is a larger and more advanced variant of the F/A-18C/D Hornet. An early version was marketed by McDonnell Douglas as Hornet 2000 in the 1980s. The Hornet 2000 concept was an advanced version of the F/A-18 with a larger wing, longer fuselage to carry more fuel and more powerful engines. The U.S. Navy currently flies both the F/A-18E single-seater and F/A-18F two-seater in combat roles, taking the place of the retired F-14, A-6 Intruder, S-3 Viking, and KA-6D. An electronic warfare variant, the EA-18G Growler, will replace the aging EA-6B Prowler. (Source: Wikipedia.)

North American Rockwell OV-10A

This month we feature North American Rockwell OV-10A by Tim Conrad, Danny Garnier. This is the original OV-10A by Tim Conrad tweaked to run optimally in Flight Simulator X. Included are five paint schemes: USN, USMC, 20th TASS, Moroccan Air Force 1980's, 40 Squadron, Barcelona, Venezuelan Air Force 1973. This is a full package with working virtual cockpit. 

The original concept of a small, simple aircraft that could operate close to the supported troops had been almost completely eviscerated by the 'system.' The ability to operate from roads (20 ft span and 6.5 tread) had been ignored, and performance compromised by the short 30 ft span, the extra 1000 lb for the rough field landing gear and another 1000 lb of electronics. The "light, simple" airplane also had a full complement of instruments, ejection seats and seven external store stations. The concept of using ground ordnance and a bomb bay had been ignored, although it did have provisions for four M60 [medium] machine guns. In spite of this growth (almost double the size and weight of our home built), the YOV-10 still had great potential. It would not achieve the advantages of integration with the ground scheme of maneuver, but it did have capabilities at the low end of the performance envelope that were still valuable and unique.

Visually, the OV-10 has a central nacelle containing pilots and cargo, and twin booms containing twin turboprop engines. The visually-distinctive item of the aircraft is the combination of the twin booms, with the horizontal stabilizer that connects them. (Source: Wikipedia.)

Baron325 Baron58TC

This month we feature Baron325 Baron58TC by Brett Henderson, S. Schaeffer and J. Giffin. More than a simple repaint of the stock Flight Simulator Baron, this package has extensive modifications. The paint scheme is based on a real Baron and features a high level of detail including chrome parts, turbo slots, signs and logos, reflections, outside views on engines, and a very realistic high performance CFG-File and finally a special created, powerful but smooth running brand new turbo normalized sound set. This is a Baron 58TC long-body with turbo-charged engines rated at 325 hp.

The progenitor of the Baron was the Beechcraft 95 Travel Air, which incorporated the fuselage of the Bonanza and the tail control surfaces of the T-34 Mentor military trainer. To create the new airplane, Beech replaced the Travel Air's tail with that of the Beechcraft Debonair, streamlined the engine nacelles and rechristened the aircraft as the Baron.

In 2008 a new Baron costs roughly $1,000,000. Since its inception, the Baron has always been near the top of the light airplane hierarchy. As expensive to operate as it is to buy, the 'next step up' from a Baron is a very big one. Faster aircraft, with greater range and more load-carrying capability are generally turbine-powered and far more expensive. (Source: Wikipedia.)

Sopwith Camel

This month we feature Sopwith Camel by David Eckert and Mark Rooks. This is the premier example of the most famous fighter of WW1. There are only 7 Camels left in the world today. All of these are permanently in museums in various stages of originality. This is the only well documented original flyable Camel. This is the only remaining one that was built by Sopwith.

Intended as a replacement for the Sopwith Pup, the Camel prototype first flew in December 1916. The aircraft was armed with two .303 in (7.7 mm) Vickers machine guns mounted in the cowl, firing forward through the propeller disc. A fairing surrounding the gun installation created a hump that led to the name Camel. Approximately 5,490 units were ultimately produced. Agility in combat made the Camel one of the best-remembered Allied aircraft of the First World War.

Hawker Hurricane IId

This month we feature Hawker Hurricane IId by Touch the Sky Simulations, Robert Sanderson. This package features a complex model with fully animated parts, detailed and animated pilot figure, removable cowlings and panels, Merlin XX engine and interior fuselage details, visual effects that include crash landings, complex virtual cockpit with clickable controls, custom gauges, and engine damage modeling. The model has accurate flight dynamics, with realistic stalls, and spins with autorotation. Complete checklist and reference sheets are included along with robust documentation in PDF format!

A new-build version of what was known as the Mk IID started in 1942, including additional armor for the pilot, radiator and engine. The aircraft were initially supplied with a Rolls-Royce gun and carried 12 rounds, but soon changed to the Vickers S 40mm gun with 15 rounds. The weight of guns and armor protection marginally impacted the aircraft's performance.

The IID undertook an anti-tank role in limited numbers during the North African campaign where, provided enemy flak and fighters were absent, they proved accurate and highly effective, not only against armored vehicles but all motor transport.

Lockheed L-1649A Starliner

This month we feature Lockheed L-1649A Starliner by  Manfred Jahn, Hansjoerg Naegele, Roland Berger, and Howard Sodja. This version (2.2) features 2D day and night panels, windshield wipers, revised flame effects, re-styled autopilot, refined flight dynamics, final approach altitude and decision height callouts, and an alternate "no VC" model for slow PCs.

Providing accommodation for ninety-two tourist-class or twenty-six first-class and forty-five tourist-class passengers, the Starliner entered service with TWA in May 1957. It was designed to fly Los Angeles-London and Paris-Tokyo in 20-plus hours non-stop. Other major operators included Air France and Lufthansa.

The Constellation's wing was effectively the same as that of the P-38 Lightning, differing only in scale. The distinctive triple tail kept the aircraft's overall height low enough so that it could fit in existing hangars, while new features included hydraulically-boosted controls and a thermal de-icing system used on wing and tail leading edges. The new plane could achieve top speeds of over 340 miles per hour, a cruise speed of 300 mph, and a service ceiling of 24,000 feet. (Source: Wikipedia.)

It is a United States built, single-seat, single-engine, long-range attack aircraft and it entered service with the Hellenic Air Force in 1975.

A-7s have been widely used by the USAF in various conflicts, including the Vietnam War, the Libya strikes in 1986, the US intervention in Grenada in 1983 and the invasion of Panama in 1989. During Desert Storm, it demonstrated more than 95% operational readiness and didn't miss a single combat sortie. In the Hellenic Air Force they were initially based in the Air Bases of Larissa (347 Squadron "Perseas") and Souda (340 and 345 Squadrons, "Fox" and "Lailaps" respectively).

The Ling-Temco-Vought A-7 Corsair II is a carrier-based subsonic light attack aircraft introduced to replace the United States Navy's A-4 Skyhawk, initially entering service during the Vietnam War.  The A-7 airframe design was based on the successful supersonic F-8 Crusader produced by Chance Vought. It was one of the first combat aircraft to feature a head-up display (HUD), an inertial navigation system (INS), and a turbofan engine. (Source: Wikipedia.)

In the 1950s the RAF issued a requirement for a new dedicated jet training aircraft. Hunting developed the Jet Provost. On 26 June 1954, the prototype made its first flight. The Jet Provost proved to be a capable trainer; after successful acceptance trials of the T.1, the RAF formally accepted the type in 1957. With a top speed of 440 mph, excellent maneuverability, mechanical reliability and low operating costs, the Jet Provost was utilized as an aerobatic aircraft, air warfare and tactical weapons training as well as advanced training.

French Chance Vought F4U-7 Corsair

This month we feature French Chance Vought F4U-7 Corsair by  Guy Hulin, Yves Raymond, Jean-Pierre Langer, Arne Bartels, Jean-Pierre Bourgeois, and Benoit Dubé. This model works both with Flight Simulator 2004 and FSX and includes 4 detailed paint schemes. A traditional 2D panel is included along with a small but functional virtual cockpit that affords an ample view forward.

The Corsair entered service in 1942. The USMC aviators welcomed the Corsair with open arms as its performance was far superior to the contemporary Brewster Buffalo and Grumman F4F-3 and -4 Wildcat. The Corsair was able to outperform the primary Japanese fighter, the Mitsubishi A6M "Zero". While the Zero could out-turn the F4U at low speed, the Corsair was faster and could out-climb and out-dive the A6M.

A total of 94 F4U-7s were built for the French Navy, with the final Corsair ever made rolling out in 1952. The French used their F4U-7s during the end of the First Indochina War. (Source: Wikipedia and other)

Savoia Marchetti S.73

This month we feature Savoia Marchetti S.73 by  Stefano Meneghini, Manuele Villa, Hauke Keitel, FSAviator, and Bob Rivera. This is an elegant thirties Italian transport aircraft, rebuilt entirely in version 2.0. Main upgrades are: completely new GMax models with improved details, animations and texture realism. A new texture map allowing more flexible repaints. More accurate flight dynamics and reference notes. Original sound package added. New panel w/metric gauges. Historical documentation and handling notes are added.

The package contains six texture sets, each with own model file with four different engine types in flight dynamics files. The documentation includes handling instructions, a very thorough history document, navigation discussion, readme and approach plates.

The Savoia-Marchetti S.73 was an Italian three-engined airliner that flew during the 1930s and early 1940s. It could be used from small airports and had reliable handling controls. It was not too costly. Some of these planes were pressed into military transport duty with Italy and Belgium during WWII. (Source: Wikipedia)

Nord 262A-21 Cimber Air Frégate

This month we feature Nord 262A-21 Cimber Air Frégate by  Barney Bigard, Jean-Pierre Langer, Jean-Pierre Bourgeois, Benoit Dubé and Claus Vendelboe Holmberg. This complete aircraft features an updated 2D panel with working yoke, autopilot and radar showing AI traffic. It includes a virtual cockpit, opening passenger and cargo doors, visible landing lights and many other features and complete documentation. New in FSX are four brand new cycling views from different camera locations inside the cabin.

Eventually, wholly state-owned Nord Aviation (later renamed Aerospatiale) took over the further development of the aircraft. The new changes that Nord brought to the aircraft were a rounded, pressurized cabin and the new name Nord 262. The new cabin design enabled the aircraft to carry between 24-26 passengers. The first prototype since the changes by Nord took to the skies for the first time on 24 December 1962.  Most sales of the initial aircraft were not in the passenger field, but rather the military field. (Source: Wikipedia)
