OVERVIEW:

So, what is the most beautiful piston engine airliner? Pose this question among two or more aviation enthusiasts and you may be sure that a lively, possibly heated discussion will ensue. However, I would be quite surprised if most, if not all, would ultimately agree that the Lockheed “Constellation” was the most beautiful, graceful if you prefer, or at least among the top two or three.

The “Connie,” as it was universally and affectionately called (much to the dismay of Eddie Rickenbacker of WWI fame who, as the owner of Eastern Airlines, thought the name to be too effeminate) was a spectacular and singular aeronautical design from the first rude sketch of “Excalibur” to the last L-1649 “Starliner.” Gathering many firsts and breaking many records in its almost five decades-long useful lifetime, Constellation consistently stands out from her sister airliners both visually and functionally. Sadly, the many luminous stars embodying this “Constellation” were ultimately eclipsed when at their brightest by the urgent, inexorable force of progress which saw the end of the age of the long-distance piston engine airliners and the birth of the big, jet-powered transports. This new era of air-transportation in the U.S. Began on 26 October 1958 when Pan American Airlines (Pan Am) flew a Boeing 707 with 111 passengers from New York to London. Soon, the jet-powered Douglas DC-8, Convair 880 and Sud Aviation “Caravelle” joined the 707 and long-range piston airliners were through.

Even so, there are many, this writer among them, who posit that even whilst swifter, no kerosene burning aluminum tube has ever come close to matching Connie’s superb grace and poise. Her story is full of ironies and surprises, of Geniuses, Presidents and Pioneers. You see, there once was this fabulously wealthy, incandescently brilliant, eccentric movie mogul, aviator and airline owner who had an idea for an airplane... - Excerpt from Constellation manual history by Mitchell Glicksman © 2016

FEATURES:

History comes alive: Experience a timeless legend brought to life inside a simulation.

Every aircraft is unique: Don't expect all gauges to read the same values, just like the real airplane. And each airplane is persistent.

Four crew positions: pilot, co-pilot, flight engineer, and navigator. Fully modelled and functioning positions constructed with down to the rivet detail.

Intelligent crew and responsive passengers:

Your engineer can manage all the systems on the fly, responding to various conditions

- Copilot calls out critical info

- Navigator observes and posts findings

- Flight attendent tirelessly works for both you and the passengers (just like the real world counterparts)

Unexpected events possible: Engines along with other systems including heating, air conditioning, and pressurization can be problematic

Captain's Career: Your performance is remembered and can get better, worse, or stay consistent based on your flying abilities and flight management

Real time Load Manager: with the ability to load individual passengers, cargo, and fuel or select presets.

Custom Navigator's Map: Zoomable map can be customized to show the desired information

Default and Historic Sperry Autopilot: You can select either autopilot in the sim

Authentic fuel deliver includes primer only starts: You can start the engines properly by using primer with the mixture in the OFF position.

Auto-Mixture: that actually performs as intended. Now you can set for “auto-rich” or "auto-lean" and the aircraft fuel to air ratio will be automatically determined and set by the carburetor based upon various factors such as altitude.

Custom Cockpit Systems and Gauges for the ultimate in realism taken far beyond what is available by default.

Inertia starters: Start these big beautiful engines by the book using authentic inertia wheel energizing and engagment

Feathering props and air starts: Custom physics allows for realistic feathering and air starts without using the starter

Deep cockpit lighting: Flood, Flourescent, and gauge lighting modeled

Dual speed superchargers: Proper supercharger physics and each engine can independently run in either high or low blower

New slip and ball code from the Accu-Sim T-6: Enjoy smooth, custom physics in this critical gauge during turning maneuvers

Authentic flight stability: The Connie was known for being a little less stable in pitch than other aircraft, which requires a little more finess and attention

Piston combustion engine modeling

Real-world conditions affect system conditions, including engine temperatures.

Fully click-able cockpits: with authentically working systems and gauges.

3D Lights 'M' (built directly into the model.)

Pure 3D Instrumentation.

- Natural 3D appearance with exceptional performance.

- Smooth movements.

Fire Extinguisher system with fully functioning overheard panel and controls.

Ground Power Unit (GPU) to power systems with engines off and not drain the battery.

Cabin pressurization system controls. You control the target altitude and the rate of pressure change and the system authentically displays and manages cabin pressure.

Three different liveries: including TWA, BOAC, and a C-69 cargo paint

A2A specialized bump mapping and specular lighting on all models.

Crew Reports pop-up 2D panel keeps important information easily available

Custom Navigator's map: accessible via keystroke or the Navigators station.

Manage temperatures with engine cowl flaps and oil cooler flaps

High temperatures can adversely affect engine performance, Serious overheating can cause scoring of cylinder head walls including ultimate failure if warnings are ignored and overly abused.

Spark plugs can clog and eventually foul if engines are allowed to idle too low for too long. Throttling up an engine with oil-soaked spark plugs can help clear them out

Experience authentic asymmetrical drag when operating various flap systems in flight.

REVIEWS
Following the T6 Texan, A2A released another big 4-motor aircraft: the Constellation.
This was very exciting, as A2A improves their products with every new release. Makes you wonder what “Connie” has as improvements compared to the earlier released Boeing 337 Stratocruiser.
FSX has limits, A2A however always delivered very well operating aircrafts. Question is how much better a product can they deliver?

PAULO RICARDO - JOINVILLE 2017 SBJV FSX P3D
Scott Harmes
Absolute Masterpiece! T-
his scenery ticks all the boxes. Flawless modelling and texturing, including one of the best ground polys I have ever seen, and a huge photoreal coverage with autogen and custom buildings. I actually can't believe it's less than 10 Euros. One of the best sceneries I have ever bought!
PAULO RICARDO - JOINVILLE 2017 SBJV FSX P3D
J. C. Seixas
Basically, I feel like I'm stealing Paulo Ricardo. Why is that? Well, you get a great product, with more than 3.2GB worth of scenery (airport and surrounding areas) for a very, very low price. And this is not an amateur developer trying to make a buck with a low quality product. Search simMarket and you'll find out what I'm saying. So buying this, with such a low price, is a no-brainer even if you don't fly that much to South America, Brazil. Just do it!
TAXI2GATE - PARIS CHARLES DE GAULLE LFPG FSX P3D
Paul Leuko
Wonderful work by Taxi2Gate which in my opinion is one of the leading developers. The airport is very detailed, night textures could be improved a bit but it's an amazing airport. The most important thing... VAS is very very good. You won't OOM unless you have extremely high settings. FPS is very good. Considering the size of this airport, it's detail and it's VAS performance some other developers should really take a close look and learn something from Taxi2Gate. 5 stars all the way!
VIRTUALCOL - SKBO BOGOTA FOR FSX P3D
marcus holmes
SKBO Bogota scenery is VirtualCol best scenery to date. It is by no means a FlyTampa or Aerosoft scenery but it is still very good and real value for money. There is a good amount of detail in the scenery and I really love the runway and taxiway night lights, they are nice a bright. Hopefully VirtualCol will make this work for P3D version 4.

SKY SIMULATIONS - MCDONNELL DOUGLAS DC-9 P3D
Alec Main
Great product! Highly recommended!! Fairly priced for the amount of models included. Free liveries on website & easy-to-use convenient installer. This troubled me a bit, but if you're unable to move the flaps or spoilers lever, make sure you turn on HYDRAULICS on the first officers side, down by the center console. Good customer support. Happy Simming ^^ Tested and works in Prepar3D V3.4.22.19868
FSXCENERY - KHSV HUNTSVILLE INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT FSX P3D
Bradley Banister
This is a nice rendition of my home airport. I am very happy with the product although there are a few disappointing items, even at this price. My first disappointment was the jetway's are incorrect. KHSV has 12 gates with jetways, all clearly visible on Google Earth. This scenery only has 8. This is the only major issue I think the scenery has. The rest are smaller details mostly dealing with parking spaces and probably not an issue to others. None of the parking has airline codes. A Google search quickly can show you which airlines use which gates so I believe they should have added this. Nothing breaks the feeling of reality more than loading a flight and having a Atlas Air Cargo B747 parked in the next gate. The scenery has a lot of parking on the tarmac with the gates. I don't see any evidence of that parking markings from google earth. Just as importantly, after 8 years of flying in/out of KHSV many times a year, I have never seen an aircraft parked in those locations. In contrast to the above, the northeastern GA tarmac does not have any parking in the scenery. In real life this tarmac is always full of aircraft, from small GA props and biz jets, to private or charter 737s. I believe the Port of Huntsville cargo area should also have more and larger parking spaces. Atlas and Panalpina alone typically have 2 or 3 B747s, including the LCF variant parked there at time in real life. There are what I think a lot of extra .bak and .txt files left over from development residing in the scenery folder. They don't take up a lot of extra space, but I think they should have been cleaned up before release. Lik-
e I said, except for the jetways, these are minor issues and I "fixed" them all in about 30 minutes using ADE so I would recommend this product to anyone interested in this airport. It is a good value for the money.
FLYTAMPA - AMSTERDAM FSX P3D
William Alexander
As always, FlyTampa has hit another home run with this vast airport. Textures are sharp and clean and the accompanied scenery configurator (I happen to own every FlyTampa product on FSX Sp2) allows tweaking for almost every user out there. Having a high end pc gave me excellent results, but with everything set to HD (default installation is HD), one can easily run into OOM due to high VAS - in this case, I simply installed the "lite" texture pack which hardly affected the visual quality (my FSX cfg is set to 1024 max anyway so I wasn't perturbed by this in the least); after all this is a flight simulator and I want to fly rather than worry about CTD on approach to Amsterdam! The surrounding areas are also covered which is always a huge plus in my opinion - this addition adds the finishing touches I always am drawn to. A job beautifully done! Highly recommended.
KINGS SCENERIES - SAN ANTONIO INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT FSX
Bill Brewer
Buildings are good.. However Runways need updated, gates definitely need to be updated.. currently RWY 12R is suppose to be 13R & there are couple other runways needing updated. Alot of missing gates & mismarked gates.. A gates not even listed, there just under gate Numbers. There really isn't any B gates listed anyway.. I sent them an email with a link too the actual layout gate number wise but yet to hear back from them.. The building have good texture to them & would be a really nice scenery once these updates were added but as is right now especially for pilots flying on vatsim, not a very reliable scenery to use right now.. Until it gets updated anyway..
