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?

FSXCENERY - JACKSON–MEDGAR WILEY EVERS INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT FSX P3D
Diane Orton
It's alright, works fine in P3D v4... had to fix the gates, because all the parking spots by the terminal were set as regular GA... no gates were set at all for the airport... but I edited the AFCAD file and fixed the issue. I believe a couple gates are missing, too. According the the terminal map, there should be nine gates from what I can tell, and there were only seven around the terminal building... I was able to fit an eighth gate into the terminal area, but there's really no room for the last one unless the ground markings are changed. All and all, it's fine for the price. WIll likely purchase KMOB, KOKC, and KTUL in the near future...
IRIS PRO TRAINING SERIES - GROB G115E / TUTOR T.1 P3D (DOWNLOAD)
Richard Wraith
WOW doesn't even describe it. Our cadets and staff have been flying the milvis tutor for several years now, and REAL tutors, and I recently upgraded our Sim to P3D v2.5, then installed this aircraft, with NO other addons or tweaks, and it has blown them all away. It looks AMAZING, is exceptionally detailed, realistic and the flight model of it is amazing. Fin-
ally somebody has done the tutor, properly! We-
ll done chaps, jolly good show from all of us over here in Blighty training RAF cadets :-)
AEROSOFT - CRJ 700/900 X FSX P3D
Shanard Letang
It was definitely worth the wait. Good sounds, visuals, and textures. I know there are some issues at the present moment but the AS CRJ works great. There are a few differences from JR CRJ 200, ei, the NW switch that actually moves in the AS CRJ 700/900, startup and shutdown procedures are different to each aircraft. One thing I noticed is the fuel in the CRJ manager does not produce the accurate amount of fuel at times so some additional fuel is require via taxi or holding fuel section. This aircraft is very immersive and fun to fly.
TABURET - FSX P3D NIGHT 3D EUROPE BASE PACK P3D
Johannes Butz
*I own ORBX Global, Vector & OpenLC products that I wanted to enhance with this product* It Illuminates some of the main roads in Europe but not all of them. If you have ORBX Products you'll probably be disappointed. -
I like to fly performance hungry airplanes, wich is why I opted for the "low impact" version of Taburet's night lighting. I guess if you're flying GA or very basic aircraft you'd be better off with buying specific regions of Taburet's Night 3D and if you're like me and you fly FSL A320's or 777/747s AND you don't want to compromise performance, then you're better off with just the ORBX lighting and one click more LOD in my opinion.

MAGMEXICO - MCALLEN MILLER INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT FSX P3D
Carlo Flores
Excellent. This is my home airport, so I was glad to see that it is for the most part accurate. Only down side is that the gates don't move, but everything else is good. Thanks for making MFE an FSX reality!
LIONHEART - ROBIN DR400/180 FSX P3D
MESTARI Nordin
je viens d'installer cet avion et je suis extrêmement déçu.J'ai fêté cette année mes 40 ans de licence de pilote (réel) et je fais du simulateur depuis une vingtaine d'année. Outre la finition graphique du modèle qui est du niveau des premiers avions de FS9, le modèle de vol est particulièremen-
t bâclé. J'ai testé le décrochage en refusant de rendre la main. l'avion à continué de se cabrer même à vitesse zéro ! (vario négatif quand même) jusqu'à se mettre vertical !!!! jamais vu ça ! puis il a fini par entrer en vrille plate ! le vrai (suivant les modèles) parachuterait avec un fort vario négatif en devenant de plus en plus instable en roulis, mais vous ne maintiendrez jamais le nez au dessus de l'horizon en maintenant le manche au ventre. et vous ne le mettrez jamais dans ces conditions en position vertical. En virage à 60°, à 100 km/h et 2000 trs j'arrive encore à avoir un vario positif ! incroyable. Le modèle de vol (surtout au basse vitesse) est complètement loufoque et donc à l'atterrissage aussi...bizarre-
ment j'avais vu des critiques similaires sur celui de X-Plane et la modélisation ressemble beaucoup à celui de X-plane...En conclusion, cette avion est un pur produit commercial et ne convient pas du tout à un simmeur exigent ou un pilote réel qui veut poursuivre son entrainement à la maison.
SIMTWEAKS - PTA (PREPAR3D TWEAK ASSISTANT) FOR P3D V4
Erich Berner
Every couple of years, one add-on comes along that can never be done without again. This is definitely one of them.
FSXCENERY - KPIT PITTSBURGH INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT FSX P3D
Tom Richey
Great job Fernando! We really needed KPIT for FSX and this hit the spot. Also, happy to report that VAS usage is minimal without the need of removing any files. The only real issue is the Latin signs on the Jetways. Not very convincing in Pittsburgh. -
Best, Tom
