The Boeing Model 40 was a United States mail plane that became the first aircraft built by the Boeing Company to carry passengers. The Model 40 was designed to replace the military surplus de Havillands that had carried the airmail since 1918. Including the first Model 40, 77 Model 40s were built between 1925 and 1932. Its success was instrumental in establishing Boeing as a leader in aviation development and manufacturing.

On February 2, 2008, 80 years after the first Model 40C was delivered, the only airworthy restoration rolled out of the hangars of Pemberton and Sons Aviation in Spokane, Washington. The restoration was the culmination of 9 years work by over 61 volunteers spending approximately 18,000 hours bringing this magnificent aircraft to life.

One year later Golden Age Simulations rolls out our simulation of this great plane for Flight Simulator. Our package presents both the Model 40 C and B-4. The model C is presented in the livery of Pacific Air Transport matching that of the restored aircraft 5339, powered by the Pratt and Whitney Wasp with a constant speed propeller. The B-4 is dressed out in both the livery of United Airlines and Western Air Express and is powered by the Pratt and Whitney Hornet.

Great care has been taken to create as accurate representation of each aircraft as is possible. In the case the C, Addison Pemberton provided input on the cockpit layout and provided a pirep of the handling characteristics of his aircraft. His input was factored into the flight dynamics of the model. The flight dynamics of the B-4 have also been thoroughly researched as well. The model is fully animated and designed to be flown from the VC. Detailed check lists and reference files are included in each aircraft’s kneeboard that represents actual aircraft operations.

The sound files for each aircraft are the work of Flight Simulator sound designer, Mike Hambley. His sound art truly brings these beautiful recreations to life and further adds to the immersive experience of flying these giants of the Golden Age skies

Included in the package is scenery offering, by FSRealscenes.com, of Alhambra Airport, Alhambra, Ca, circa 1930. This airport was the home of the Western Air Express fleet and a hub for mail and passenger traffic during that era.

So, relive the early days of passenger flight, flying the airmail routes of the golden age of aviation with Golden Age Simulation’s Boeing Model 40 for FS 2004!

REVIEWS
There’s no doubt this is not a hardcore simulation of the real thing. It’s a little too easy to fly in trickier parts of the envelope to make that claim, with it being almost impossible to stall or spin for one thing. But that does not make it unworthy by any stretch of the imagination, quite the opposite in fact. There’s more than enough of a challenge to be had from flying the thing even in spite of the omission of the real aircraft’s trickier foibles.

BLUEPRINT - KEWR NEWARK LIBERTY INTERNATIONAL FS2004
Nadeem Zabaneh
This Scenery is good. It seems that all their texture quality of their models are not high in resolution. BUT, It basically does the JOB!
FSXCENERY - KCOS CITY OF COLORADO SPRINGS MUNICIPAL AIRPORT FSX P3D
Tom Richey
My home airport that I've waiting years for. An "OK" rendition, but far from the real thing. The exterior of the airport is a stucco beige, not concrete grey. Gate assignments are wrong, but better than the default. Worth 3 stars. The current freeware version is much more accurate regarding appearance and gate assignments. One of the best features of this scenery is that it doesn't gobble up VAS which most other airports by this publisher do. Anyway, thanks for the effort. As I understand, most of the money paid goes to animal rescue and I'm good with that.
JUSTSIM - LARNACA INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT LCLK P3D4
Michael O'Halloran
Another brilliant scenery addon from Just Sim. The detail is fantastic. The performance is very smooth with good FPS. Makes a nice airport to fly some Euro hops in the 737 or A320.
GRAND ISLAND SIM - BANJUL GBYD P3D4
Michael O'Halloran
Its nice to see an airport in this region. Considering this is the first airport for P3D V4 they have done an outstanding job! The texture quality is great the performance is very smooth. Looking forward to seeing what more they have for the future.
MP DESIGN STUDIO - AEROSPATIALE GAZELLE SA342 FSX P3D
delphine Echassoux
Awesome bird! The cockpit’s vibrations in flight, terrific sounds and maneuverability at medium and full speed are extremely immersive. Delicate to fly at slow speed, it will require patience to break in and that’s also part of the charm. Cold start procedure works fine, even if the documentation doesn’t explain how to proceed. The documentation is well illustrated but not explanatory, anyway. It’s very easy to find guides online for anyone interested in starting this model from scratch. F-
or an FSX helicopter and all the known problems related to helicopters’ implementation on this platform, the designer did a fantastic job with this model. And, on a side note, his communication is excellent. I had several detail questions which I asked by mail. They were answered within an hour with joined pictures to illustrate the main points. Kudos and Bravo!

LEONARDO SOFTWARE - FLY THE MADDOG X 64 BIT P3D4
Alexander Arlow
Having purchased about every major study-level aircraft released in the last 15 years, I have to say that I am truly impressed with this one. Leonardo has managed to deliver a well rounded, fps-friendly, study-level aircraft created in an era were glass cockpits and steam gauges meet. On the plus side: -) Intuitive view switcher allowing to get through the flightdeck with ease -) Easy controlling of the ND by using the mousewheel and the right mouse button while hovering over the ND -) Ground and cabin OPS simulated -) Loadmanager / flight- and fuelplanner allows for proper flightplanning -
Negative: --
) External sounds are lackluster - a proper high quality soundset is highly recommended -
Be aware though: Tutorials are available on YouTube only and the manuals are not as comprehensive as you would expect from a study level sim - therefor it is only recommended for advanced simmers. Ver-
dict: A must have for every "serious" simmer!

Daniel Niederer
The good old Maddog is back! Love the details and the system deepness. Highly automated but still some workload to keep you busy.
