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?

IMMERSIVE AUDIO - MJC8 Q400 COCKPIT SOUND IMMERSION FSX P3D
nasreddine Hssaini
A must for everyone !!!Excellent , no need for any comment. Realism at its best
REALWORLD SCENERY - ISRAEL 3D 2017 FSX P3D
Harry Nikken
This is the first FSX/P3D scenery for the entire country of Israel and I'm quite happy with it. I use it on my P3D: a GTX 1080 laptop with an Oculus Rift CV1. My FPS is 20-40fps except in Tel Aviv area where it drops to _10fps and P3D quickly gets an OOM (Out of Memory) The reason is the amount of (autogen) buildings shown in Tel Aviv, which is tremendous. Also I had to follow the advised settings in the accompanying README file strictly to the letter otherwise my Rift showed a blue screen on one eye. I created in P3D one saved graphics config file for Israel with everything (else than the adviced settings) almost maxed out and one for Tel Aviv with reduced buildings autogen. It is an absolute blast to fly the F22 Raptor over the Holy land with the Rift at Mach 2 or do a leisurely sightseeing tour with a GA plane. The mesh is quite good which gives a fantastic 3D effect with the Rift. The photo real scenery that covers all of the country is not as crisp as e.g. with Orbx scenery and the airports didn't get any attention from the makers. The night lighting is too white and too yellow. All in all it Israel 3D 2017 has it's limitations but is still very enjoyable.
ORIENTALSIM - KIGALI X FSX P3D
Sasha Mulagaleev
Wonderful scenery, textures are great, I have a good FPS in that scenery, No OOM, or another crashes. What about creating GQNO (Nouakchott) airport next, It is one of the most modern airport in western Affrica.
LORBY-SI - CROPDUSTER X FSX P3D
Larry Wigmore
Now that I have more experience with the current version I want to revise the rating I originally gave it based on how much I'm enjoying using the program.
RICHER SIMULATIONS - CARIBSKY GRENADA X FSX
chris radev
You get the whole island and the airport. Photoreal is excellent, autogen placement fantastic, coasts are well defined. airport has all the expected features such as grass and what not. The only thing that could be improved is the airport building textures; they are too flat and lack definition. But overall unless you stare, it doesn't detract from the whole experience. This product will break your autogen however. RS has linked a patch in the review comments below. Im surprised that patch isn't available in the simmarket downloads when you buy the product... So if you don't read the reviews, you will have no autogen for the rest of the world. Patch works and takes 2 seconds. Just needs to be included in the simmarket download upon purchase
FLYTAMPA - AMSTERDAM FSX P3D
michael hansen
One word WOW. very nice flytampa its running very smooth, and good fps my new favorit airport.
EDITVOICEPACK
Ken McVie
This is a great little program for correcting airline call signs meaning that there is no longer a need to adjust them via the aircraft.cfg file (a process that rarely works anyway). It also enhances the realism to the voice exchange with ATC. However-
, it does not change the voice accents of the flight crews. It works well with FSX:Steam.
WING CREATION INC - SHIZUOKA RJNS FSX P3D
Dale Wong
Great scenery but I think Wing Creation should use a higher resolution texture for the apron, as that's where we spend a long time on and there are a small glitched hill next to the airport that won't affect anything (it might be just on my end, not sure). Other than that, this is a really great product, really looking forward to the new Tokyo Haneda they are going to develop!
LORBY-SI - AITRACKER X FSX P3D
david kelley
Very handy traffic tool. Fills a void in the AI traffic viewing and control area. Develope-
r is super responsive to questions and updates. Also check out the Lorby Live Traffic tool on his site. Very interesting stuff going on. Keep up the good work!
LORBY-SI - WHERE ARE MY AIRCRAFT WAMA FSX P3D
Geoff Bryce
I have always wanted to be able to display my aircraft out in the open so I can walk between them and choose an aircraft to fly or simply look at the various models, versions and repaints I have. Where-Are-My-Ai-
rcraft does this and more. This is a fantastic program. It also allows me to get to any of my static objects(airplan-
es,animals,boat-
s, ground vehicles, misc, and rotorcraft(in Simobjects) in FSX, FSX-SE or P3D, as well as display any of my purchased addon, stock or Ai aircraft at any airport. To save on VAS, it allows you to replace any aircraft with a 'object' or an AI. There are "Scenes" which allow you collect static objects into GROUPS. For example, you could define an airport with Sunshine and Rain scenes and add different static objects to them. You can then activate the one or the other and WAMA will show only objects of the active one. Really smart. I notice the same author has another great program called AI Tracker X which allows you to better control and look at your AI aircraft. Top effort.
